Rab have used their new Cirrus insulation for the Altus Vest; Cirrus is a 3M Featherless synthetic insulation that provides a high performance alternative to natural down. It was designed to mimic the look and feel of natural down with all the benefits and none of the drawbacks. It retains two times the loft of down when wet, breathes superbly, has no allergens, retains warmth even when wet (more so than Hydrophobic down), compresses easily and dries exceptionally quickly. We are massive fans of insulated vests for more active winter pursuits, they provide enough core body warmth without overheating and work really well under a waterproof shell as they are less bulky and offer more freedom of movement than a jacket. They also look really good with a pair of jeans when you're just knocking about town.

Rab have used this amazing new insulation in the Altus Vest, so called as it's like having a little cloud of warmth around you, and produced a lightweight synthetic insulated gilet with the equivalent warmth to weight ratio of 600 fill power down insulation. Mini stitch through baffles keep the insulation in place and give the Altus a clean and minimalist look. If you are familiar with Rab products this is like a synthetic filled version of their superb Microlight Vest. The filling compresses well when packed and is robust and durable. Its resistance to moisture, warmth when wet and speed of drying are extremely high; superior even to Hydrophobic down and previous synthetic insulation.

Pertex Quantum fabric is used for the shell, this incredibly lightweight fabric keeps the filling under control, is windproof and highly breathable and an air-permeable nylon lining is used to optimise breathability. The combination of insulation and fabrics provide unparalleled levels of breathability making the Altus perfect for active use in cold and damp conditions as a mid layer or stand alone jacket. 

You get high quality YKK zips throughout and there is a neat zipped internal pocket to keep your phone nice and safe. Elasticated arm holes and hem drawcord keep out the drafts and retain the minimalist theme. When not required the Altus will pack into its own pocket and stash almost unnoticed into your pack making it perfect layer for all winter mountain activities.

Regular Fit: Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting garments that are bang in the middle. The middle is good.

Relaxed Fit: Drapes loosely on the body, baggy fit.

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.

"I first noticed Trekitt by their fantastic YouTube videos, which were very informative and honest. So I headed on over to the website and looked at various coats to try and determine which to go for. Being a bit of a muppet I didn't really have a clue what was best so contacted customer services who directed me to a few coats but said he would go away (over the weekend!) and think some more and get back to me Monday. I thought it was just a fob off as the conversation had been going a while but low and behold on Monday morning an email appears with suggestions! I was so pleasantly surprised that if I hadn't already been convinced to buy with them, it was concreted then. I bought 2 coats from them the same day and very shortly after they appeared. The fit was exactly as they had suggested it would be, the quality of the items was as described and I am very happy with them. In this day and age of large companies taking a backward step from customer service, it is such a breath of fresh air to be treated with such a personal touch. If I ever need anything outdoorsy, I know exactly where I'm going."
