I’m now on my second Rab Xenon jacket. I wore the first one nearly every day from fall through spring for years until the outer fabric finally started to wear through.

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Very light
  • Warm
  • Fairly good-sized pockets
  • Stuffs easily into its chest pocket
  • Nice-fitting hood

Cons

  • None

My first Xenon jacket only had a one-way main zipper so it didn’t work well as a chilly-weather belay piece. That’s the only thing I had wished Rab had done differently. By the time I bought my new (second) Xenon jacket Rab was making them with a two-way zipper. Yay!  

On the downside, the first Xenon fit perfectly, but the newer one is cut more snugly all over, so I recommend sizing up. I also liked the color options a little better in the older model, but overall it’s still my favorite go-to piece!

Experience

I have multiple jackets from various reputable outdoor clothing brands and the Xenon just works for me in the widest range of conditions.

Source: bought it new
Price Paid: I paid about $180 US
