Mountain Equipment Lhotse/Manaslu (2014)

Rab Xiom Pants are very lightweight overtrousers at just 267g (size L), making them ideal for those who want to travel light.

Rab Kinetic (2012)

£150.00

A very light jacket at only 190g. It has a nice flattering fit, covers the hips comfortably, and there’s plenty of length in the arms too.

Rab Infinity

£150.00

This jacket uses man-made Primaloft One insulation instead of any natural down filling, with the immediate result being that it is not as warm as down equivalents. For general use it’s fine, although you will want to keep moving when it’s truly perishing. The thinner grade of insulation also makes it more versatile and useful for a wider range of ...

£200.00

A well-proven performer and frequent Trail favourite, the Rab Bergen/Vidda general-purpose jacket is made from eVent fabric, which offers extremely high levels of waterproofness and breathability.

Rab Momentum 2009

RAB LATOK

£250.00

Review: Good length sleeves, a snug high collar and an excellent hood that really kept some awful weather out. It’s short at the hem, and the eVENT fabric, which breathed superbly, is a little stiff and rustly in comparison to some. It has superb, well-placed pockets, including two that will hold a map, and we liked the lengthy pit-zips, although ...

Rab Latok 2008

£250.00

The Rab Latok winter jacket is made from eVent fabric, so breathability and waterproofness are as good as it gets. Better still, the fabric feels a little stiffer than some, so it should be better able to trap warm air around the body in a howling winter storm. The hood can be rolled down and secured, plus it benefits from ...

This lightweight waterproof jacket from Rab is a little tighter than some, and also a shorter cut than most, which will appeal to some more than others. But it proves very comfortable on the hill, with a nicely fitting hood. While the eVENT fabric is noticeably breathable, it really needs some venting. It’s got a great hood though, with a ...
