A welcome layer
Reviewed By Mark, 13 Nov 2014

This is a useful item to have providing a warm layer that packs down to nothing in your day sack. I question the fill rating as it is not as bulky as the Berghaus or North face gilets. That said it does provide warmth almost immediately. If worn under a waterproof outer you will need to ensure your outer shell is not compressing the loft as this will reduce the thermal property of the gilet. My ME Lhotse outer is quite snug as the arms are long on this outer and medium outer would have arms dragging over hand. As a result I am inclined to invest in the Rab generator gilet as it is less bulky .



Very nice looking and warm insulator
Reviewed By Antonio, 27 Feb 2014

I managed to get this on a price match and was very pleased for what I paid. It looks great and is very warm with the down fill content it has. The Pertetx also gives the black colour a subtle sheen which helps to give a nice look, as well as be durable.

My only complaints are that the stitching of the down compartments on the outside is not carried on in the pockets, leaving the down to move around a bit. Also, it is not equally weighed on each side of the pocket, leaving the back feeling a bit empty what is a little irritable.

However, these are minor gripes with what is a fantastic vest. Once you take it off, you'll immediately realise how warm you were when wearing it!



A great addition to your kit
Reviewed By Mark, 01 Feb 2014

Good gilet that provides warmth to a layering system. I feel it is a lighter weight compared to NF & Berghaus gilet but like the small pack size it offers. Some feather migration through the outer fabric but can live with that. Very comfortable to wear.



The wife loves it
Reviewed By mel, 13 Aug 2013

I was tempted by either a North Face or Berghaus Gilet. Im so glad I went for this, it is so comfy, warm and packs down very small. The wife thinks I look great in it. It was a great purchase at a great price. The staff in Chester pointed it out, many thanks to them.



Great for camping and casual wear
Reviewed By Charlie , 26 May 2013

This jacket is nice and warm also packs down small into the supplied stuff sack. Ideal for a warmer layer for camping in the cooler months, also works as a makeshift pillow!



Lovely piece of kit
Reviewed By Ravinder, 28 Sep 2012

Extremely warm with top quality down.
Packs down well and the stow away sack is of good quality.
High;y recommended.



Warm, Smart, and Rab
Reviewed By Christopher, 20 May 2012

This Gilet is one of the best vests on the market.

It is very light thanks to the Pertex Quantum, and also very warm due to the high quality down fill used.

It has two zipped fleece lined pockets which are generous in size and do a great job at keeping your hands warm on a chilly crag.

I wear mine pretty much everyday and you would be surprised at how well it stands up to the rain too!



Fantastic warmer & ultra comfortable
Reviewed By Peter, 21 Mar 2012

At first I was unsure of parting with the money for this as I have never owned a Rab or down jacket / gilet before, but my doubts were immediately disbanded when on a cold October afternoon in Keswick, on went the gilet and instantly the wind stopped biting my I felt cacooned in a blanket of warmth.

A great versatile gilet (although I always call it a body warmer) which when packed in its stuff sack can fit into the smallest gap in your rucksack.

Very comfortable to wear and good sized pockets (2 external and 1 internal) make this a very useable item.

Highly recommended!



A valuable pack
Reviewed By R, 18 Feb 2012

Totally agree with the other reviews, I have had mine for a few years now and its invaluable. I use it for outdoors, and at work. the flexibility of the gillet is terrific, whist the warmth factor is great. Comfortable to wear, handy side pockets. Not so good in the extreme wet. (obviously being down) but I've had it fairly soaked and I still didn't get wet or cold. Weight ratio is great and never gets left behind.



Ideal for all uses
Reviewed By Richard, 06 Jan 2012

Top gilet, very light and comfortable, two good size pockets on the outside with one on the inside, with toggles on zips for ease of use. Excellent down quality providing warmth quickly on walking stops of prolonged periods of time. Stuff sack makes it easy to compact and put in your rucksack taking up very little room. Cant think of a situation where i would'nt take it with me!!

One of the better gilets i have used, highly reccommend!
