The Rab Expedition 8000 jacket is confidently one of the warmest jackets in existence. It is designed for the coldest areas this earth has to offer, whether that's summiting Kangchenjunga or visiting Polar regions. 

Starting with the most important aspect of the jacket (the insulation), Rab hand stuff a whopping 526g of the highest quality 850 fill power goose down into baffles which are also stitched by hand here in the UK. This down is then treated with a Fluorocarbon-free DWR (durable water repellent) coating to allow the down to retain more warmth when wet. Each expedition jacket is hand stitched and stuffed in Rab's own factory, meaning the attention to detail and accuracy of the garments are second to none (see video below). 

Surrounding all of this toasty insulation is a Pertex Endurance fabric; this outer fabric is completely windproof, water resistant and highly breathable. It's one of the lightest, most reliable and durable fabrics available and is commonly used throughout insulated garments as it provides a lightweight barrier which also packs up to a small size. This fabric is also stitched incredibly densely, trapping more warm air inside and decreasing the liklihood of the down escaping over time. A lighter weight 20D Pertex Quantum is used on the inner to save weight and increase breathability.

There's no doubt that this is a big, bulky piece, it simply has to be. Rab have equipped the Expedition jacket with elbow articulation to allow a greater freedom of movement. It also makes the jacket far more comfortable to get along with during extended use. A full length two-way zip is placed on the front of the jacket and allows you to unzip from the bottom to fit a harness or to make toilet trips easier. 

Pockets wise you're given three outer pockets and two internal pockets - we would always recommend popping phones and other electricals in the inner pocket (where the warm air is). Oversized cuffs allow bulky mitts to be placed under the sleeves, while a helmet compatible hood doesn't make you choose between warmth and safety. 

Our Expedition Showroom here in Hereford is the best place to speak to our experienced sales team. We would always advise with specialist expedition gear that you pay us a visit beforehand to determine size, items and quantities. Alternatively, we will always do our best over the phone if you are a distance away (01432 263 335).

1Chest

Run the tape around the fullest part of your chest, the tape should be just below the arm pit and over the shoulder blades whilst horizontal to the floor.

2Waist

Measure around your natural waist as show in the diagram

3Inseam

Measure your inside leg from crotch to ankle blone keeping your leg straight: not as easy as it sounds, you could take a pair of trousers that you already own, that fit you well, and measure from the crotch to the bottom of the leg.

4Sleeve

This is a bit more tricky! Measure from the top of your spine (at the bottom of your neck) to your elbow and on the your wrist

5Arm

You should place the beginning of the measuring tape behind your shoulder, and feed it out following your arm making sure to pass both the elbow joint and the wrist, as pictured. You should take the measurement at the point where you would like the sleeve to end. This is usually just past your wrist.

Would you like to see the special offer we have for you?

 

   

The product I bought was competitively priced. The video demonstration of the product assisted me in my decision to purchase the item and was very informative, as it showed all of the features and the fit. I chose "click and collect" which was an efficient and quick process. I would definitely shop here again.
