The Rab classic lightweight down jacket has been updated. With a fresh design aesthetic and recycled construction, the highly packable Microlight Alpine Jacket is the go-to system for rapid warmth when the temperature drops.
Years of experience go into the design, creation and realisation of all of Rab's products. Behind this stands a deep respect and love for the mountains we play, explore and adventure in. Inspired by this, the updated Microlight Collection is devoted to everything Rab is passionate about - performance, technology and the environment.
The redesigned Microlight Alpine Jacket takes the versatile, easy-pack insulation of the established classic and dials in some intelligent new upgrades. It features a combination of zoned micro and nano baffles to increase core warmth without inflating weight or bulk - and the jacket’s ethical credentials are now equally sound. With 30D Pertex® Quantum ripstop nylon, as well as GRS-certified, 700 fill power P.U.R.E recycled hydrophobic down, the Microlight Alpine Jacket now features fully recycled shell, insulation and lining. Practical and user-friendly, both as an everyday jacket and as a mountain layer, additional features include three harness-compatible pockets, an easy-carry stuff sack and a down-filled hood with stiffened peak.
With its refined styling, improved down distribution and ethical upgrades, the Microlight Alpine Jacket is the definitive multi-purpose down jacket.

The Rab Men's Microlight Alpine Down Jacket - 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.
