Rab Electron Down Jacket - Men's

Four-season versatility.

The Rab Men's Electron Down Jacket fends off cold, wet weather so you continue climbing, all year long. The Electron excels on winter ice climbs, summer alpine endeavors, and shoulder season multipitches. Light and lofty 800-fill down insulation equips the Electron with midweight warmth, and Nikwax's hydrophobic water-resistant treatment helps the down retain its lofty warmth in moisture. Rab wrapped up this protective insulation with Pertex's highly water-resistant, breathable, and wind-repellent Endurance fabric. The hood cinches down over beanies or helmets with ease, and Rab added a wired peak to stay out of eyesight while you belay. Rab also included a stuff sack for compact storage in your backpack.

Great jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: large

Very nice, very warm, I'm 5'10' 170 lbs and the large fits me just fine, has a left hand zipper though, need to get use to that but other wise a very nice coat

Great technical puffy with a few quirks

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

This coat is very warm. It is not Michelin Man bulky, but it is definitely warmer than the popular micro-puffys like the Ghost Whisperer. Great weight to warmth ratio. Shell material feels very durable but is a bit noisy. Fit is on the slim side, it would be hard to layer much under it unless you size up. Sleeves taper quite a bit, but the cut still gives good range of motion. I have longer than average arms, 6 ft. 175 pounds and the medium fits me well. Love the elastic cuffs and the big pocket zips. The hood is kinda weird, it is oversized to be helmet compatible but this ends up being annoying for general use. The elastic band around the hood is sewn through the neck of the jacket, kind of a weird design, we will see how that wears. Overall a well thought out insulation piece with features biased toward technical ascents and the like more so than bumming around town.
