What is it?

Based on the incredibly popular Nebula jacket, the Nebula Pro features some subtle and some not-so subtle upgrades to ensure it remains at the top of the pile. If you hadn't seen the original Nebula jacket, it is essentially a completely featherless, synethetically insulated jacket which performs exceptionally well in damp, cold conditions. 

What is it made of?

Insulation: Starting with what gives the Nebula its warmth, Rab use their completely synthetic Cirrus insulation to ensure warmth in almost all conditions. Down is still the lightest and warmest insulation available, however it can't deal with wet conditions, rendering it useless if the heavens open and you're stuck without a shell. The Nebula Pro on the other hand will retain around 90% of its warmth, even when soaking wet, making it a far more versatile option for those who are after a do-it-all jacket for cold, damp conditions. We'd also like to add that this year the insulation has been tweaked slightly to offer a more compressible design (also it feels far better when you're wearing it).

Fabric: Surrounding the insulation is an updated Pertex Quantum Pro ripstop outer fabric which slides under additional layers easily and feels far softer than the previous Nebula; yet somehow doesn't compromise on durability. Not only does this feel far better, but exudes a quality feel that reassures you that you're wearing a meticulously engineered piece of UK-designed kit. If you choose to use the Nebula as an outer layer, the Pertex Quantum Pro outer fabric is water and wind resistant, providing an adequate amount of protection for general mountainous conditions.

What are the features?

As always, the feature list is long with the Nebula and includes some essential additions to make life in the hills or town that much more enjoyable. A helmet compatible hood allows you to slip a climbing helmet underneath comfortably, yet includes all the various adjustment points to cinch the hood down when you're not wearing a helmet. Part elasticated cuffs with velcro adjustment points easily fit gloves or mitts underneath, while an internal security pocket stores essential items such as a phone, keys or change; two zipped hand pockets offer additional storage. Lastly, a two-way YKK main zip can be unzipped from the lower or upper of the Nebula, meaning it will fit over a climbing harness when belaying. 

How does it fit?

As an insulating layer, it is designed to be a close, snug fit, yet features enough room to layer up underneath on the particularly chilly days. The Nebula Pro uses Rab's 'Regular Fit' so this means you'll have a bit of wiggle room, so it'll easily fit an extra layer or two on underneith. 

Where does it fit in the layering system?

The Nebula Pro is a midweight, breathable and packable synthetic jacket. Use it as an appropriate insulating layer depending on your activity level and the weather conditions. It works perfectly well as a standalone jacket on those crisp, dry, freezing days or as a cosy casual jacket. Layering is not a precise science and there is no one perfect system that will suit every person, situation or the weather conditions. Some of us feel the cold, others, like me, get hot very quickly, but for more advice on using layers please check out this video.

The Nebula Pro is a brilliant all-rounder for UK winter conditions. It's compressible, easy to take care of, brilliant in damp conditions, can be used as a midlayer or an outer layer and offers a host of upgrades from the original Nebula to ensure it retains its place at the top of the insulation pile.

Care & Advice

How Should Your Insulated Jacket Fit?

Insulated jackets are pedantic little things. Too tight and you'll compress the insulation and limit the warmth capabilities of your brand new jacket, too loose and you'll spend hours warming up the dead space inside the jacket. Getting the correct fit isn't just about aesthetics, it will determine how warm you are. 

The Incorrect Fit

Too loose: A jacket which is too loose will keep you relatively warm, however it will take far longer to do so and will waste large amounts of your precious energy. An insulated jacket works by trapping the natural heat that your body gives off in the fibres of the insulation; this creates a micro-climate inside your jacket, keeping you warm and toasty. If your jacket is too loose, heat will be able to escape through the hem, the sleeves and the neck of the jacket; it's a little like sticking the heating on in your car with the windows cracked open - it will heat up, just incredibly slowly.   

Too tight: A jacket which is too tight is arguably worse than one that is too loose. If your jacket is far too tight, the baffles can compress to a point where the insulation can't loft effectively, limiting the amount of warmth it can trap. Essentially, it won't work! 

The Correct Fit
It's a tricky one to explain, but it's somewhere in the middle. You've first got to consider how many layers you'll tend to wear underneath; will you have just a t-shirt then the jacket, or possibly a baselayer, midlayer and then the jacket? When you've figured out your layers and you've popped your insulated jacket over the top, you shouldn't have any dead space inside. The cuffs and hem should be comfortably sealed around your waist and wrists with room to move. You should be able to lift an arm up above your head without the hem of the jacket lifting more than an inch or so, and the sleeves should be long enough that when carrying out the same motion, they aren't mid-way up your forearm. Your shoulders and chest area should have enough room so that your hands can touch behind your back without feeling restricted. 

Additional Information
Lastly, consider which activites you'll primarily be carrying out while wearing the jacket. Are you primarily using it as a winter climbing piece, or an everyday/dog walking jacket? You'll find that technical climbing jackets tend to feature a shorter cut, while urban and casual jackets feature a longer cut to offer additional warmth with less mobility.

Excellent customer service. Really detailed easy to understand product descriptions on the Trekitt website, and gear reviews on the Trekitt YouTube channel made it so easy to choose the right backpack for me.

Amazing service! Very helpful in regards sizing and what most matched my needs, despite this being done over the internet. YouTube videos of products being examined are very useful also. Would definitely use again, very fast and efficient delivery. Brilliant! Highly recommended!
