This coat really is a good insulator, compared to my other coats keeping me much warmer on cold days. The coat is very well made and exceptionally light. The colour I wanted was out of stock, so I ordered this one which is a nice steel blue contrasted with a dark yellow lining. This is my first Rab purchase as I have usually stuck with Berghaus and I’m really impressed. Excellent quality.
This jackets performs so well in this cold weather. Perfect for just wearing over a t-shirt as the wind doesn't penetrate the jackets seams. The jacket is very light weight but the material still feels strong.
