For more than 40 years, Rab jackets have been among the industry’s toughest and warmest and designed by those who have spent their lives in the mountains.

But there are many great Rab jackets – so how can you choose your next?

The most straightforward way is to go about it by intended purpose. Here are some of the best Rab Jackets for extreme cold, packability, and wet and windy conditions.

Best for Extreme Cold: Rab Neutrino
While there might technically be warmer Rab jackets made with synthetic fill that stays warm when wet, it’s honestly tough to beat real goose down – which is just what this Rab jacket packs.

The Neutrino is stuffed with 7.5 ounces of R.D.S.-certified down, and the jacket is treated with a Nikwax water-resistant finish to help keep it dry (critical for a down jacket, as down loses its warmth when wet).

The Rab Neutrino also features a helmet-compatible hood, adjustable wrist cuffs, harness-compatible hand pockets, a drawcord hem to seal in warmth, and a shell made of Pertex Quantum Pro recycled 20D nylon which seals out wind and snow.

Best for Packing: Rab Microlight Down Jacket
The Rab Neutrino is light, at only 1 pound and 5 ounces, but the Rab Microlight Jacket takes weight and packability to an extreme.

At only 14 ounces, the Microlight is packable enough for any adventure, even one that will have you tight on space.

It’s warm, though, thanks to 4.7 ounces of 700-fill recycled down paired with mapped micro and nano-baffling that increase warmth without adding weight.

It also features Pertex Quantum recycled nylon for both the lining and face fabric, along with elasticated cuffs, harness-compatible pockets, and a drawcord hem to keep warmth in.

Best for Wet Weather: Rab Downpour Plus 2.0
If staying dry takes precedence over warmth, then the Rab Downpour Plus 2.0 is the one to beat – if you can. This waterproof jacket is one of the best.

At only 13.2 ounces, it’s perfectly packable, and the heart of this jacket is the Pertex Shield 2.5 membrane with a face layer of recycled 40D polyamide that is waterproof (20,000mm) and weatherproof, with a 20,000 g/m2 breathability rating.

The regular fit accommodates additional layers for warmth, and this Rab jacket also features a helmet-compatible hood, zippered underarm vents to improve breathability, adjustable cuffs, and a drawcord hem.

Best for Windy Conditions: Rab Vital Windshell Hoodie
The Rab Vital Windshell men’s hoodie is the lightest entry in this list, at only 5.6 ounces, and is completely windproof.

This jacket’s face is made of Hyperlite 20D nylon with a windproof rating of 1 CFM and a DWR coating that helps shed light rain to keep you warm and dry.

It also features a front chest pocket which doubles as a stuff sack, along with an adjustable hem, a semi-fitted hood with a pliable brim, and two zippered hand pockets.
