Manufacturer's Description

Ran introduces Polartec Alpha in its Strata range. Polartec Alpha fabric takes insulation far beyond all previous boundaries. Allowing a free exchange of air and moving moisture away from the body, to keep you warm and dry. Polartec Alpha isn’t merely protection from the cold, it’s insulation from limitations.

Overheating is underperforming. So unlike traditional synthetic fill or down, Polartec Alpha allows a free exchange of air to keep you warm, comfortable and focused. Developed for U.S. Special Operations and now available for outdoor enthusiasts, it takes performance fabric - and you - to a totally new place.

The Strata Hoodie is a lightweight Primaloft insulated hoodie with Pertex Quantum fabrics for versatile lightweight warmth and protection, ideal for alpine belays.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Rab Women's Midweight Synthetic Insulated Jackets Strata Hoodie - Women's-Ink/Tasman-X-Small. Made from our unique Merino fabric created using a combination of superfine Merino wool and polyester with 37.5 Technology all our Merino baselayers are designed to maximise temperature regulation and offer unrivalled levels of warmth and to control odour performance during multi-day use. Merino baselayers are designed in a slim fit to be worn next to skin.


Having a warm jacket's not super useful if you just end up sweating to death inside of it, which is why Rab designed the Strata Women's Hooded Insulated Jacket to be a super-breathable mid or outer layer for climbing, mountaineering, skiing, and hiking. The Strata's Pertex Microlight fabric and zoned lining help move moisture away from your ski to keep you dry and warm without overheating, and the Polartec Alpha synthetic insulation offers plenty of warmth without being overly heavy or stifling. Rab built the Lycra-bordered hood to fit over or under a helmet, depending on your preference and the size of your noggin, and designed the whole package to stuff down into the chest pocket for easy transport on the off chance that you're not wearing it all the time.
