Rab Mens Latok GTX Jacket Ascent Red Information

Season : 2021S R

Brand : Rab

Code : QWG-61-AS

What is the Latok GTX?

The Latok is Rab's toughest, most protective hardshell in their range, designed for alpine climbing, winter mountaineering and everything in between. If you're in the mountains and require reliable protection from the elements without feeling like you're wearing a reinforced tarpaulin, the Latok should be at the top of your list. 

What is it made of?

Membrane(s): The Latok features a Gore-Tex Pro membrane, but in two variants. You get Gore-Tex Pro Most Breathable throughout the body and Gore-Tex Pro Most Rugged over the shoulders and hood. This makes it more breathable in areas which require it and more durable in areas prone to abuse. Clever, right?

Outer fabric: A mountain-inspired hardshell is only as good as its outer fabric. Rab use an ultra-tough 70D nylon throughout the entire jacket to provide protection and added weather-resistance. This fabric is fully recycled, so not only are you getting a high-performance jacket, but one which is responsibly sourced. 

What are the features?

Starting at the top, you get a 3-way adjustable, helmet-compatible hood which can be rolled away when not in use and features a laminated peak to keep water off your face. Rab have always made brilliant hoods, and this one is no exception; the hood tightens snugly yet comfortably around your head and prevents the hood from blowing off in strong winds. Cleverly, when just the lower drawcord on the hood is tightened, it tucks in the other drawcords so they don't slap you in the face when it gets windy. Other features include a fleece-lined chin guard and back of the neck, two zipped chest pockets, two zipped hand pockets, zipped vents under each arm to dump heat quickly and effectively, an internal mesh security pocket, an internal mesh storage pocket, cuffs which feature excess fabric on the top of the sleeve to protect the top of your hands, elasticated hem and waist drawcords to seal out the elements and lastly some reflective badges on the chest and rear. As you may have already figured out, this jacket is packed with toys!

How does it fit?

It fits into Rab's 'regular' fit block, meaning it's neither wetsuit-tight nor Hawaiian shirt loose. It has enough room underneath to fit additional layers during winter, yet it can be tightened using the supplied drawcords and cinches to allow it to fit with just a baselayer underneath. The sleeves are nice and long so they're not halfway up your arm while climbing.

Care and maintenance

To keep your outdoor clothing and equipment in tip top condition and performing to its maximum we recommend the use of Nikwax products. We have been using Nikwax products since day one (26th March 1986) and have found them to be totally reliable, dependable and effective. Today’s Nikwax treatments contain environmentally friendly elastic water-repellent polymers that bond to fabric fibres, leaving the spaces between open and breathable. These stretchy polymers are able to stretch and move with the fabric so they stay put for longer and work better.

Nikwax treatments will not change the look or feel of the fabric and they are all water based, environmentally safe, non-flammable and contain no nasty Fluorocarbons. Nikwax products can be used to clean, re-proof and revitalise all your outdoor technical clothing and equipment.

Waterproof breathable clothing has a durable water-repellent (DWR) finish applied to the face fabric during the manufacturing process. The DWR forces water to bead up and roll off the surface therefore preventing the fabric from absorbing moisture. If the outside of your jacket is soaked in a layer of cold water, the warm damp air within can’t escape and will condense on the inside. This makes the jacket feel cold clammy and can make you think that it’s leaking. The DWR finish is not permanent and needs to be maintained and revitalised to optimise performance.

This three layer waterproof jacket should be cleaned regularly with Nikwax Tech Wash; I wash my jacket about once a month, or more often if it gets really filthy. Regular washing with Tech Wash will maintain the DWR for longer and remove salts and oils that can contaminate the fabric, and it will keep your lovely jacket clean and smelling fresh. Washing can be done in a machine according to the manufacturers care guidelines (on the internal label). First clean out any detergent and conditioner residue from the machine dispenser and then add the required amount of Tech Wash and away you go. Hand washing is also suitable but be sure to rinse the garment well.

When you notice that rain/water is no longer beading up and rolling off it’s time to re-proof. Nikwax TX Direct will re-instate a long lasting DWR to completely rejuvenate your jacket. Re-proofing can also be done in the machine once a garment has been washed. Just add the TX-Direct and use the same programme you used for washing. You can also use the spray-on product on a damp garment that has just been washed.

You wouldn’t buy a Ferrari and never have it serviced, so make sure you regularly wash and re-proof your quality kit.
