What is the Infinity Light Jacket?

The Infinity Light is a lightweight, natural goose down insulated and highly weather resistant jacket for active mountain users looking for lightweight warmth with high levels of breathability and protection from all but the worst of the weather.

Rab have used the new Gore-Tex Infinium membrane to protect the down from the elements, and whilst this does not make the Infinity 100% waterproof, it does make it incredibly breathable and to be honest, you’d have to try pretty damn hard to get wet in this jacket.

What is it made of?

Insulation: Let's start with the beating heart of the Infinity Light Jacket, the insulation. Rab have used 190g of 800Fill Power, Hydrophobic, RDS European Goose Down in a narrow box wall construction to maximum performance.

Ok, let’s break that down:

190g – Physical weight of all the natural down inside the Infinity Light jacket.

800Fill Power – Rab grade down according to the size of the clusters, that is the amount of air that the down can trap relative to its weight.  They take 1 gram of fully lofted down and record its volume, the resulting number represents the down’s “Fill power”. So, for this jacket, 1 gram of down “lofts” to fill 800 cubic inches; or around 16 litres if you’re familiar with rucksack capacity.

Hydrophobic - Each and every cluster of down has been treated with special Nikwax Hydrophobic stuff to ensure they resist moisture, retain more heat, loft better, and dry much quicker than untreated down. The hydrophobic treatment means that a down jacket will perform better in wet conditions, but it’s not intended to make a garment waterproof.

RDS – Responsible down standard. The responsible down standard is an independent, voluntary global standard that aims to ensure that down is sourced from ducks and geese that have been treated well. This means farming down in environments that allow them to live healthy lives, express innate behaviours and not suffer from fear, pain or distress.

European Goose Down – Just about the best quality down you can get!

Narrow box wall - Box-wall construction uses distinct box-shaped compartments that run horizontally around the body. Because the box-shaped baffles are not pinched at the edges there is space for the down to fully loft throughout the chamber allowing for an even distribution of down and vastly reducing the likelihood of cold spots.

Surrounding all this luxurious insulation is the new Gore-Tex Infinium membrane. This new membrane provides complete wind-proofing, high levels of breathability and excellent weather resistance. Technically this membrane isn't 100% waterproof, but in practice we've found that only prolonged torrential rain will eventually seep through.

On the inside a lightweight, breathable nylon is used which increases next-to-the-skin comfort and on the outside Rab have used a lightweight, ripstop nylon for increased durability and protection. Additional stitch-free overlaid panels on the torso and upper arms, provide extra protection in harsh conditions.

What are the features?

Rab have kept the features to a minimum as the Infinity Light is intended to be, rather obviously, lightweight and minimal for those looking to keep the weight low and the packsize small.

Starting at the top, the Infinity features a down insulated hood with a wired peak and concealed adjusters to seal in the warmth around your face.

Moving down, you've got articulated sleeves for increased comfort when climbing, finished off with low profile elasticated cuffs to get a tight seal over gloves or mittens. The front zip is a two-way YKK Vislon for reliable performance even in freezing conditions. This zip is then backed up with a synthetic insulated baffle to make sure nothing gets through.

Storage wise, you get two YKK zipped hand pockets and an internal zipped security pocket. Down at the bottom of the jacket is a hem drawcord to seal out the weather and keep in the warmth and for extra safety there are reflective logos.

An included stuffsack makes storage easy and the Infinity will easily pack down into your pack when not required.

How does it fit?

The Infinity fits into Rab's 'regular' fit block, however we'd say it sizes up fairly large. This is to allow layers to fit underneath in super cold conditions, but also to allow complete freedom of movement when mountaineering.

Where does it fit in the layering system?

The Infinity is designed to be your outer layer in cold and damp conditions. Thanks to the Gore Infinium membrane, Hydrophobic Down and protective outer fabric, you're unlikey to ever need to wear a shell jacket over the top.

Care & Advice

How to wash your down products

Having spent years talking to people about down products, whether that’s a jacket, sleeping bag or even a pair of slippers, very few have had the confidence to go ahead and wash the product on their own, especially when they have just spent an arm and a leg on it. This small guide is here to explain that it’s not as daunting and utterly terrifying as it first appears.

Step one: Before you even get near that washing machine, wipe off any excess mud or dirt that may be lingering on the surface of the jacket, as this will clog up the washing machine, eventually rendering it useless.

We recommend the use of Nikwax Down Wash Direct for down products as it’s one hundred percent environmentally friendly and will wash and re-proof the garment without the use of bleach or any other nasty chemicals. What household washing agents can (and often do) is remove the water repellent coating on the fabric of the jacket, whilst also damaging the delicate array of feathers inside.

Step two: We’ll assume in this instance that you’ve been washing other products prior to your down jacket and have used a bleach based detergent. Therefore it’s a good idea to run the washing machine for half an hour or so without anything inside to rinse it clean before adding the Nikwax or putting the jacket in. Also, don’t forget to remove the detergent drawer to give it a wash inside, outside and behind, as detergent can clog up and still enter the washing machine if not cleaned out thoroughly. This ensures that any remnants of detergent are removed and that the Nikwax products will work effectively.

Step three: Set the washing machine to a cold wash (check the garments care label, most tend to be around 30°C) and as delicate as possible. Most washing machines have a “wool” cycle which is ideal.

Step four: If using Nikwax Down Wash Direct, place 100ml in either the tray or directly into the washing machine inside a small pot/ball. If you choose to use another washing product, place the appropriate amount in the machine in the same way.

Step five: Set the washing machine to run on a slow cycle, allowing plenty of time for the jacket to soak up the cleaning/re-proofing product. Most washing machines will have a pre-set time for different washing cycles.

When the cycle has finished be prepared for a shock, your precious bit of kit will come out looking like a soggy ball of material. But don’t worry, you haven’t ruined it, it’s just that all that fluffy down insulation has become water logged and has clumped together. The trick is to now get all that down nice and dry to reinstate its superb insulating properties. Simply hanging it up in a warm place will not work that well. It will take days to properly dry and you will have to constantly break up the clumps to get it thoroughly dry. The best way is to use a tumble dryer; either a domestic one for smaller items or a commercial drier for sleeping bags.

Step six: Pop the garment into the dryer and make sure to select a low heat; a high heat runs the risk of melting seams and fabrics within the garment. It sounds weird, but shove a few tennis balls into the drier with the garment; the tennis balls will bounce around and help to break up the clumps of down. Every 20 minutes, pull the jacket out of the dryer and lie the jacket down on a table. Run your hands over the jacket until you find a 'clump' or ball of down; tease apart this down clump and spread it evenly into the baffle. Once you're confident you've pulled apart every clump to the best of your ability, stick it back in for another 20 minutes. Keep repeating this until there are no more clumps left. 

Step seven: When the cycle has finished and you are sure that you have got the garment as dry as possible, hang it up in a warm dry place, an airing cupboard is ideal, for 24 hours. This drives out the last of any dampness and allows the down to loft fully. Take it out and give it a good shake and, hey presto, it’ll be as good as new.

"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."
