I ordered it at 11.50pm last night for £70 but code save10 finished at midnight
Scorching, never seen less that £150. Would make a tidy profit on eBay.
Bargain. Quality jacket without having to pay the premium for the name.
ordered for £72 with student discount plus 10.5% topcashback takes it down to £64.44
are these any good though ?? yes I know Rab is very good quality but does anyone know if these thin ones have a good heat retainer .I'm not one of these with "all the gear no idea " mentality ...it must also function . just interested .
TCB offers more cash back

I ordered at 11.48pm last night for £6 but code save74 finished at 11.49.
I have the alpine version with hood (and gilet). Great kit, super hot.
Don't care how good it is because it looks awful
If you're a big bloke (XL or XXL) then I recommend the Microlight Alpine... the one with a hood. It saves you having to wear a beanie and feels really nice against your melon.

Berghaus, TNF etc have all since copied the design of this jacket off from Rab.

Great deal OP!!!
Got one last year for about £80. It's quite thin so don't expect to be your only coat in winter
I bought one last year, ok for mild winter, heavy rain it comes through the jacket, looks good on.

There is a Rab size guide at
http://rab.equipment/uk/product-info/sizing/
Never had a Rab item before. Are they normal fitting or a bit closer fit, like armani and Italian makes?
Thank you, hubbie's xmas present sorted

HOT but I have never heard of Rab? Is it similar to Canada Goose?
How does the quality compare to Berghaus and North Face gillets? Looking for a new one to replace my Berghaus one...

Up there with the best
Great deal. Ordered for pickup at local JD
What measurement (chest) would a large be?? Sometimes these kind of jacket come up small.

It's a down jacket so just like Gizmo you're not supposed to get it wet.

Depends how cold you go??

Take it off, then...
I bought one last year, like it so much, now I have three.

I have two Rab Microlight Alpine and one Microlight (the exact one in the picture).

And because I like them so much, I gave away all my other jackets to Charity this year.


They are great, lightweight and warm.
I walk fast, In the winter of UK, I only wear a shirt and the jacket. I do not need to wear another layer.


There are two down sides:
1. They are not very water resistent.
2. They suffers from down loss just as most of down jackets.


Rab offer lifetime warranty.


I found Ultimate Outdoors customer services bad. They do not solve my problem and just fob me off.

If any problem, I will contact Rab directly.

I paid £101 for microlight

Paid £109 for microlight Alpine.


At £80, it is great price for the jacket.


The not so good point is it is from Ultimate Outdoors.

But you can always contact RAB if things go wrong.
And I can confirm all voucher codes from Ultimate Outdoors expired yesterday.

Other than those on full price items.

There is no need to search.

TCP and quidco still available.
cold voters probably not aware of the brand.

Rab is a good brand for mountain clambing or ski wears.

So as mountain equipment, Northface etc.

Personally I prefer Rab than the other two.

Rab's sizes are more generous thant Northface.

Two points about this

1 Not available in my size (M).
2. Not fully waterproof
Credit where credit is due though, heat OP for finding a great deal though I am sure others will benefit from.

HOT but I have never heard of Rab? Is it similar to Canada Goose?


Rab is a good quality uk brand, Canada goose charge extortionate amounts for jackets, but may be a little overkill warm in uk weather,
Does anyone know of a down-free synthetic alternative?

I bought a North Face Nuptse 2 Gilet and I love it. Except, I have since learned more about the feather harvesting process and I have to say that it's not for me. However the properties of down are incredible - the warmth and easy compatibility. And it's light too. Surely there's an alternative that doesn't involve feathers from geese?
Great share, heated
