It's not like my Dads vests!
Reviewed By Simon, 13 Jul 2013

Quite simply one of the best pieces of kit I've bought. It was hardly off my back during the winter. Combined with the Montane Sabretooth shell I was never cold. It's light and toasty warm. When it was damaged (not too sure how it happened, but a small rip/tear caused some lofting to escape) it was repaired with no fuss and very quickly. I cannot see the join! Certainly there are no strings here.



Love it!

I wanted a gielt but dont like the padded ones that make you look huge. Thats why i chose this one. I love it because its not chunky and can also be worn under my jacket to keep me extra warm. Great product, well made and super warm.



Perfect companion
Reviewed By Rob, 10 Mar 2013

This product is brilliant. I can wear it under my waterproof for extra warmth (which you can't do with a normal puffa vest) or over a jumper. What makes it five star is that you can simply pack it into the pocket and slip it in your rucksack. I use it for walking, cycling, motorcycling and hope it lasts me years. Worth the investment.



Great insulator

A Rab For All Reasons
Reviewed By Simon, 07 Jan 2013

I searched high and low for a versatile vest that would keep me warm when it mattered, but did not overheat me when I was working hard. I finally chose the Rab Generator Vest because it uses cutting edge Primaloft technology coupled with Rab's proven track record in designing technical outdoor gear for the discerning client. This Rab vest also provides a little urban chic and can be worn on the mountain or down the local pub. All in all it is a Rab for all reasons.



should live in every top lid

Great bit of kit offering instant faff free warmth regardless of season or altitude. Looks great around town or chin wagging in a bothy. Fully recommend. A medium fits easily over or under a softshell
