Rab Strata Vest
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Rab Strata Vest is a lightweight vest that sets a new standard in synthetic insulation. The Strata range is the culmination of several years hard work with fabric and synthetic insulation suppliers. Rab has taken brand new Polartec Alpha insulation and combined it with a 20 denier Pertex Microlight outer fabric that provides wind and water resistance but also allows some through-flow of air to maximize breathability and comfort. The Strata range is very much designed as active warmth and these garments are meant to be used when moving quickly in cold conditions. The Strata vest works as an outer layer in cold and dry conditions but can equally be layered under a shell should conditions dictate. Ideal for mountaineering, alpine climbing, mountain walking or for any activity where warmth and breathability are paramount.Alpha technology looks set to revolutionize how synthetic insulation is used in the mountains.

Use it when you climb, wear it while you run, or warm up with it at the campsite. No matter the cold occasion, you'll appreciate the Rab Men's Strata Vest for its versatility and lightweight warmth. Made with Pertex Microlight fabric, this vest keeps the weight down so you can keep your endurance up during cold-weather activities. Its nylon and polyester mesh lining moves with you so you don't have anything holding you back when you climb through a climactic crux to the chains. The Strata's Polartec Alpha insulation provides the same warmth found in traditional insulating fabrics, without the weight or bulk. This insulation is also highly breathable so you won't be begging for air after your run, and it still resists wind so you won't get a chill during said run. This vest has a slim-fit design so you can layer a waterproof ski shell overtop for extremely cold days at the resort. The chest pocket doubles as a stuff sack so you can attach it to your harness if you want warmth for the descent.
