Women's Midweight Down Jackets
Ten women's down jackets from leading brands go head-to-head in this comprehensive group test. What does 'midweight' even mean? And by that definition, which models stand out? All will be revealed...
Rab are world leaders of insulation - we have spent decades perfecting the performance of our products. Harnessing years of experience in the mountains, this winter the innovation continues as we carry out an extensive revision to both our down and synthetic jackets.
Combining inventive new fabric developments with exceptional construction, our jackets are honed for everything from first ascents and polar expeditions to cold days at the crag. As you start to dream of imposing frozen walls and steep snow-filled gullies, it's time to dig out your down ready for the season ahead.
Expertly balancing warmth and weight, the Neutrino Pro is the definitive choice for mountaineers. Born from the iconic Neutrino Endurance Jacket, the Neutrino Pro has been honed to be even lighter and more packable than its well-loved predecessor. Pairing our extensive experience designing insulation with the latest fabric technology, we have created a warm and packable jacket that's perfect for lightweight ascents.
To achieve such warmth without increasing weight, the Neutrino Pro is made from Pertex Quantum Pro - a light but highly durable and water-resistant fabric, and filled with 800FP ethically sourced, hydrophobic European goose down.
The Positron Pro sets the standard for high altitude mountaineering. Every aspect of this jacket has been carefully refined to offer ultimate protection in extreme cold weather environments. Designed with a box-wall construction on the torso, back and hood and stitch-through construction on the sides and arms excess bulk has been reduced to increase mobility and comfort.
Whether you're climbing at high altitude or exploring the Polar regions, the Pertex Quantum Pro outer ensures a high level of water resistance and durability while also being lightweight and breathable. Inside, each chamber is filled with the highest quality 800FP ethically sourced, hydrophobic European goose down assuring core warmth is maintained in cold environments and at altitude.
Excelling in cold and damp environments, the Nebula Pro makes icy, shivering belays far more bearable. Leading the way with our early introduction of synthetic Cirrus featherless insulation, the Nebula Pro is well suited to long days on the mountain in variable conditions.
The down-like structure of Cirrus gives this jacket an excellent warmth to weight ratio and small pack size while the durable, quick-drying Pertex Quantum Pro outer, ensures this jacket will keep you warm - fending off the worst of the weather while you focus on the task at hand.
