Microlight Summit Jacket

Coming in for its tenth year around the block, the Rab Microlight Summit Jacket is a tried, tested, and much-loved layer for fast alpine assents. Filled with 750-fill European goose down, it offers incredible warmth that won't weigh you down—the Summit comes in at less than a pound. Ethically-sourced and treated with Nikwax, this down won't lose its loft (and therefore its warmth) if you encounter a wet patch or two, but you don't have to sacrifice lightweight packability in favor of synthetic insulation. Rab uses Pertex Infinity Weave in the shell fabric, a seamless baffle construction that boosts wind and weather resistance when you find yourself on razor-sharp ridges or windswept summits, helping you shed the cold when the going gets tough.

Rab equipped the Microlight Summit with a number of features that are alpine-friendly. The hood fits over your climbing helmet, but uses an internal stretch hood gaiter to improve the fit around your face if you're not wearing head protection. The zippered hand pockets are placed for convenience with a harness equipped, while an included stuffsack lets you clip the packed jacket to a carabiner once the weather clears. The streamlined fit can be worn as your only jacket, yet will slip easily beneath a shell if a surprise storm rolls into basecamp.

  • Lightweight insulated jacket for quick alpine pursuits
  • Hydrophobic down won't lose its loft in damp conditions
  • Weather-resistant fabric protects against light flurries
  • Stretchy cuff and hood gaiters seal in your body heat
  • Packs down nice and small into the included stuffsack
  • Harness-friendly pockets placed high for convenient access
  • Slim fit can be worn alone or as a midlayer

very warm and fits well

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XS

wish it came in a nice dark blue though like the microlight alpine! It's a little puffier than the mountain hardwear ghost whisperer for example, so layering it under a rain jacket is slightly harder, but manageable. I had the old version of the microlight alpine, and some design changes have made the new alpine too tight in the armpits restricting movement, but there is no problem with the the Summit that I can tell. I have a long torso, bought XS, and it hits a little below the hip. I wish it had the old cinch option for the bottom of the coat like the old versions, but I guess not a deal breaker.
