Rab Microlight Vest (Woman)
The sleeveless alternative to the Rab Microlight Jacket, the Rab Microlight Vest is a mid-weight core insulator, designed for a multitude of activities. Constructed from super lightweight, weather resistant Pertex Microlight nylon and insulated with 750 fill hydrophobic down, it is compressible and packs easily into the chest pocket for simple transportation. Other features include YKK zips for increased water resistance and lycra bound arm holes for extra protection from the wind.

Pertex Microlight is a super lightweight nylon fabric that is downproof, windproof and abrasion resistant. It also provides some water resistance and breathability, although its main function is to provide lightweight packability which is why it is often used to make light, insulating jackets.
Hydrophobic down is down which has been coated with any kind of DWR (water repellent substance). This means it doesn’t get as wet and will dry faster, which helps to preserve the loft, as well as your body temperature!
Flurocarbon Free DWR
Flurocarbon free DWR is RAB’s exclusive water repellent coating. It works in the same way, and just as effectively as other DWRs, except it doesn’t contain flurocarbon. Instead it is made with a more neutral carbon strain, which won’t harm the surrounding environment during or after production.
