Rab Continuum Jacket200, added Jan/2014, see all Rab news & reviews
announcement by Rab
New for this winter, the Continuum Jacket is the lightest down jacket Rab has ever produced and looks set to become a favourite of the fast-and-light crowd. It combines premium fabric, components and down with decades of design experience to create something very special.
Amazingly, it weighs less than Rab’s existing down vests and yet provides outstanding warmth thanks to its 850 fill power down. This is sourced from Europe and then the new hydrophobic down treatment is applied for extra weather resistance. Protecting the down is the lightest fabrics Pertex produce, a 10 denier Quantum GL fabric which offers fantastic protection and strength for its modest weight.
The mini stitch-through construction helps to reduce the bulk associated with insulated jackets, without compromising warmth. This, combined with the Slim fit, allows it to integrate easily into a variety of layering systems.
Although the envelope has been pushed with the Continuum, all the details you would expect from a Rab down jacket are present. YKK zippers are used throughout and an insulated storm baffle, elasticated cuffs and a hem drawcord help to seal out the cold. It has a tiny pack size and can be stored neatly in its left pocket.
