The Rab Men's Xenon Jacket is a lightweight insulated jacket made exclusively for men as a perfect piece for use on alpine trails or cold weather trekking. The exterior and interior linings are made with Pertex Quantum GL 10 Denier rip stop lining with light 60g Primaloft One insulation in the body, sleeves, and hood. The simple and sleek design of the Xenon jacket spares weight and bulk, and the Lycra-bound hood is low volume and compressible, as it was designed to fit under a helmet. Standard Rab features are included for this men's jacket, including a YKK front zip with internal insulated zip baffle and chin guard, YKK zippered hand warmer and chest pockets, double exit hem drawcord, and the entire jacket is compressible for easy storage while on the go. For smart, athletic men who prefer to go light in the mountains, but without sacrificing performance, choosing the Rab Xenon Jacket is a decision you will never regret.
The Xenon Jacket is a super lightweight synthetic insulated jacket with a very light outer fabric. The Xenon Synthetic insulated jacket is the culmination of several years hard work with fabric and synthetic insulation suppliers. We have taken Primaloft® synthetic fill and wrapped it up in the lightest Pertex QuantumGL® 10 Denier fabric that is currently available. You get a full length garment with a full length YKK zip, 2 hand warmer pockets and a chest pocket and all for just 345g/12oz!!! The whole jacket packs into its own chest pocket and is ideal as a superlight belay or over layer jacket, to be carried in a pack or clipped to a harness. Ideal for Alpine Climbing, Mountain Marathon, Mountain Walking, Trek and travel and any fast and light activities. What more could you want?
In 1981, British mountaineer Robert “Rab” Carrington started making down jackets and sleeping bags in Sheffield, England. Inspired by the new style of lightweight alpine climbing which he helped pioneer, Rab made it his mission to make equipment that would withstand “the most extreme conditions in the world.”
Rab’s product line has expanded dramatically since then, but Rab’s commitment to functionality, durability, and value remains as strong as ever. At GearX.com, we are continually impressed by Rab’s superb knowledge of technical fabrics (they were the originators of Pertex) and attention to small yet crucial details like high-quality zippers. No matter which Rab product you choose, you can be sure that it will be a faithful companion in the mountains.
Insulated with synthetic Primloft One, the Rab Men’s Xenon Jacket provides ultra-lightweight warmth for cold weather backpacking, alpine climbing and travel. The insulation combines with premium Pertex Quantum GL face fabrics to create an extremely compressible jacket that packs cozy warmth on cold mountain days. The fitted, insulated hood with roll-down closure offers extra protection from the wind and can be worn under a hood or helmet.
