Warm, adaptable and protective, this hooded insulated jacket is built for varied mountain conditions. With intelligent synthetic insulation and controlled air permeable fabric, it excels in start stop activities, negating the need to change layers.

Rab says:

Offering reliable, instant warmth and working hard to regulate temperature when output increases, the Xenair Alpine is an adaptable synthetic insulated hoody, perfect for alpine adventures on foot or skis. Built with a lightweight Pertex® Quantum Air outer the jacket is highly breathable and weather resistant. It is insulated with two densities of recycled PrimaLoft® Gold Active+ insulation, strategically body mapped to provide warmth where you need it and breathability in high heat areas. This effectively regulates temperature when the incline steepens or the temperature drops, maintaining warmth when static and increasing airflow on the move.

In addition to packability and warmth, the Xenair Alpine boasts a full alpine feature set. It has an insulated, helmet-compatible hood with a semi-elasticated face opening and rear adjustment. Sleeves are articulated for mobility with elasticated gussets at the cuff for a seamless fit with gloves. The Xenair Alpine jacket has a two-way YKK® VISLON® front zip which allows for easy belaying, with an insulated zip baffle and a comfortable chin guard.

Negating the need to change layers and providing warmth when you need it most, the Xenair Alpine is an intelligent, hardworking layer ideal for fast and light alpinism, mountaineering and climbing in winter conditions.

Rab's Xenair Alpine 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 cold environments during high output activities such as ski touring or winter climbing.

The hood has an elasticated closure that works well with a  helmet and has an adjustable toggle at the back to cinch in the hood when not wearing a helmet.
