The Summit has been a staple of the Rab range for many years and continues to be very popular. Using high quality 650 fill power goose down and a Pertex Endurance shell, this is by no means the lightest down jacket, but this is offset by its incredible durability and luxurious warmth.
In response to user feedback Rab have added 60g of polyester insulation to the shoulders of the Summit Jacket to keep this part of the jacket warm and protect the down fill. Down in this area can be crushed and compressed over the years and the synthetic insulation goes some way to help prevent this.
This is the AW 2011 version and The Climbers' Shop have them available at the incredible price of just £165, RRP £230. Get yours quick as they won't last long at this price.
