Rab says:

In search of a lightweight down gilet for mountain, town and trail? With recycled construction and body-mapped baffles, our best-selling Women’s Microlight Vest is more effective than ever.

Our classic Women’s Microlight Vest has been brought up to date with a slick new design aesthetic and some carefully selected upgrades. At just 259g, it retains outstanding packability but, from the 30D Pertex® Quantum ripstop nylon shell to the 20D lining and the GRS-certified 700FP P.U.R.E down, the fabrics and down are now fully recycled. The new design also features ‘intelligent’ insulation. The zoning of micro and nano baffles helps put the down where it’s needed, reducing migration and improving warmth, without wasting weight, adding bulk or restricting movement. Ideal for both everyday insulation and mountain layering, ascent-ready features include a weather-resistant DWR coating, two large harness-friendly zipped hand pockets, a warm down-filled collar and a drawcord-adjustable hem.

The new Women’s Microlight Vest delivers an appealing combination of low weight, core warmth and easy movement for a rapid insulation boost whenever it’s needed.

Rab's 2020 Womens Microlight Down Vest range of down garments are designed to replace a heavy fleece, providing similar levels of warmth for about 40% less weight. The RAB Microlight Vest is no exception - narrow baffles and high quality down ensures it has awesome insulation value for its weight.

The Microlight Vest has an impressively low weight. This updated version uses an fantastic array of recycled materials it to keep you warm. 118g of 700 fill power Hydrophobic European Goose down is from recycled sources while the durable 30D Pertex Quantum outer is also recycled. The green credentials of the new Microlight series is great to see but also performs just as well, if not better in our opinion, as past versions.
