Fifty Sense Seal of Approval Rab Clothing

Microlight Alpine Jacket

This Ultra light down jacket is a little piece of heaven after long day of trekking, as the sun starts to set, and the cool night settles in. It’s like wrapping yourself in a blanket at the end of the day. And it is truly functional as well.

With 165 g of goose down fill it performs at the maximum warmth to weight ratio. While backpacking, I wore it right into my sleeping bag and used it as my pillow, having it right there for the middle of the night pee break!

It stuffs neatly into the chest pocket, making it’s compactability a perfect piece for backpacking or travelling.

There are 2 hand warmer pockets, and a hood with shapeable wire rim to ensure warmth and comfortability.

I wear this piece after skiing, out to the mailbox, to the store, backpacking, and everything in between!

Aeon Tees

The Aeon Tee from RAB is one of those pieces that you just love to reach for. It is technical, comfortable, and stylish.

It is great worn by itself, the fabric provides PF 30 and is lightweight, as not to hinder any activity you are up to.

The fibre construction promotes super fast wicking and drying, and it odor resistant, making it great for multi-day, multi-activity excursions.

Whether worn by itself or as a great layering piece, you will not sacrifice comfort or function, and is offered in great color palettes!
