The Asylum Jacket uses RDS Certified 650FP European Duck Down, contained by a tough and durable Pertex Classic outer. If the wind is biting at your face the Eskimo-hood will wrap round head blocking the bitterness from your skin as you belay or walk. The super large pockets can fit all your walking essentials in or even your rock shoes to warm them up before you slide your toes in. With a comfortable regular fit you can pack in the layers worn underneath meaning you don't have to stay inside when the temperature drops.

The Rab Asylum is an awesome jacket. If you consider the sheer quantity of down, it is very good value for money. It contains twice the down of other medium weight jackets, and about 3 times what you'd find in a lightweight one! 650 fill power is also still very respectable. The outer is robust and the construction, very high quality.
It's perfect for the depths of winter, but, may be too warm when it isn't so cold. It is really designed for standing around (belaying) or bimbling about a freezing town centre. You can go for decent walks in it but only on either very cold or windy days, or at a slower pace. The hood doesn't have a cinch cord. It still works well, but if you're walking into the wind, bear in mind that you won't be able to keep the draft out. It works well with a hat underneath. The fit accurate but generous so you can get layers underneath...but I don't know why you'd want to!!

In summary, buy it for winter but don't wear it for strenuous walks or mild temperatures.

Ordered this for my husband for the cold Scottish winter. He has been raving about how warm it it. It looks stylish too. Great value for money.
