WIN a Rab Microlight Alpine Jacket worth £180. Lightweight, weather-resistant – thanks to Nikwax Hydrophobic Down – it offers superb warmth, weight and packability.
British brands Rab and Nikwax have joined together to create the ultimate in down-filled outerwear. Down insulation is where Rab started. Today, all Rab down products exclusively use Fluorocarbon free, Nikwax Hydrophobic Down.
Down has long been an insulator favoured by outdoor enthusiasts because of its unbeatable insulation to weight ratio. However its propensity to absorb water and lose its loft and insulation properties normally make it unsuitable for more challenging weather conditions. Nikwax Hydrophobic Down solves this problem and helps the wearer stay warmer for longer: in fact, it helps down retain loft for up to 60 times longer than untreated down. What’s more, Nikwax Hydrophobic Down dries faster too, absorbing 90% less water than untreated down so restoring performance quicker.
Rab’s Microlight Alpine Jacket is available for men and women, sizes S - XXL and 8-16 respectively.
