Superlight, breathable and packable, this insulated jacket is a highly versatile technical midlayer. Intelligent body mapped synthetic insulation and breathable fabric maintains comfort during high output activities.
The Xenair Light Jacket uses synthetic insulation and breathable outer fabrics, ideal for use as a warm midlayer or as a technical outer. Highly versatile and hardworking with a super low pack size, this synthetic insulated jacket is perfect for high energy activities, from fast hiking to mountaineering.
The Xenair Light Jacket is built with a Pertex® Quantum Air outer. This fabric has an open woven structure which allows air to flow through it freely, and a DWR finish easily shedding light rain and snow. With maximum breathability and weather protection, the Xenair Light Jacket is ideal for intense mountain activities.
It is insulated with body mapped, recycled PrimaLoft® Gold Active+, strategically zoned to areas where extra warmth is needed. High heat areas, such as under the arms, are insulation free to aid temperature regulation.
Designed with an articulated fit and adjustable hem, the Xenair Light Jacket enables full range of movement when negotiating challenging terrain. It has a full length YKK® VISLON® front zip with an insulated zip baffle and chin guard for comfort. Featuring two concealed zipped hand pockets, one of which doubles as a stuff sack, and a concealed chest pocket, the Xenair Light Jacket has useful storage on short adventures when travelling fast and light.
Rab's Xenair Light Insulated Jacket is Rab's attempt at making a do it all mid layer for cold environments that eliminates the need to constantly remove or add layers.
The new dual density insulation keeps you warm when you stop for a break or stop for a bite to eat, but then starts to breathe once you start moving again - this jacket is best used in temperate to cold environments due to being the lighter version of the Xenair Series.
The collar provides a close fitting seal around your neck keeping out the cold air while the pockets are positioned to work with a hip belt - they could be higher so you can use more of the pocket while wearing a hipbelt in my opinion.
