Need a lightweight down gilet for multi-activity insulation? With recycled down and body-mapped baffles, Rab's Microlight Vest delivers core warmth without restricted movement or wasted weight.
Rab's classic Microlight Vest has been upgraded. In addition to a fresh, active-cut aesthetic, the use of zoned micro and nano baffle stitch-through construction ensures a more intelligent distribution of down, eliminating cold spots and delivering warmth exactly where it’s needed. Built exclusively from recycled fabrics, it uses 700FP P.U.R.E recycled down, alongside a 30D Pertex® Quantum ripstop nylon outer with a weather-resistant DWR coating. Practical mountain features include easy-stretch elasticated armholes, harness-friendly zipped pockets, a drawcord adjustable hem and a close-fitting collar. They also include a compact stuff sack and a weight of just 317g for the easiest possible carry.
Whether you want casual everyday warmth or a flexible mountain mid-layer, the new Microlight Vest is down insulation at its most accessible.

We know our customers like to know exactly what they're buying; we're not going to sugar coat it, but we are going to explain it. We've divided up all of the sustainable features we've identified across our product ranges and grouped them into three so you know how your purchase is making an impact: Think Nature, Think Welfare, Think People.
The Rab Men's Microlight Vest - Beluga has the following sustainability attributes...
Carbon Neutral or Climate Neutral brands have been third party verified as reducing their carbon footprint, often balancing their remaining emissions with carbon credits to support projects that are combating the climate emergency.
Sourcing down or synthetic insulation from post-consumer products makes a very easy solution to the ethical question around virgin down and stops synthetic fibres (aka plastic) from entering landfill. Don’t worry about where it’s been – all recycled down and synthetic insulation is cleaned before being reused in a new product! Buying recycled insulation helps reduce the environmental impact of a new product.
By recycling fabrics, we are not only stopping extra waste heading to landfill but also reducing the need for virgin fabrics to be created. Recycled fabrics can be anything from recycled polyester to recycled cotton and where recycled cotton is used, it's often offcuts from factory floors that would otherwise end up in landfill. It would be a shame to waste as in its production, a single pound of cotton uses 173 gallons of water.
