Winter insulation experts Rab have introduced new Cirrus™ technology to their winter 2015 collection. 

Rab Cirrus™ takes Rab’s expertise in natural down and mimics it closely in a unique synthetic technology. Developed in partnership with 3M, Cirrus™ fibres create loft to give the same warmth-to-weight as 600FP duck down. Rapid drying times make Cirrus™ ideal for mixed and unreliable weather conditions. 

Rab’s new Nebula and Nimbus jackets offer climbers and mountaineers the warmth and low weight of natural down jackets in a water resilient, fast-drying package using Cirrus technology. 

The Nebula jacket features a Pertex Endurance shell for increased durability and weather protection, and a helmet fit hood. The Nimbus provides a lighter weight alternative, with a Pertex Quantum shell and an under helmet hood. 

“For Rab, producing the best down products possible is where it all started,” explains Tim Jasper, Head of Design at Rab. “Now with the introduction of Cirrus™, Rab have harnessed decades of down expertise to evolve a synthetic technology that offers a genuine alternative.” 

Key technical features include a helmet compatible hood for climbing use, a Pertex® Endurance® outer fabric and YKK® zips throughout. The Nebula Jacket is designed as an all-round cold weather piece, yet the technical feature set offers the flexibility of using the jacket as a winter climbing and belay jacket.
