Rab Womens Nimbus Jacket Ebony Information

Season : Sale

Brand : Rab

Code : QIO-08-EB

Rab have used their new Cirrus insulation for the Nimbus Jacket; 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.

Rab have used this amazing new insulation in the Nimbus jacket, so called as it's like having a little cloud of warmth around you, and produced a lightweight synthetic insulated jacket with the equivalent warmth of a 600 fill power down filled jacket. Mini stitch through baffles keep the insulation in place and the flattering angles of the baffles give the Nimbus a feminine and minimalist look. If you are familiar with Rab products this is like a synthetic filled version of their superb Microlight Alpine Jacket. The filling compresses well when packed and is robust and durable. It's 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 Pertex Quantum lining is used to optimise breathability. The combination of insulation and fabrics provide unparalleled levels of breathability making the Nimbus perfect for active use in cold and damp conditions as a mid layer or stand alone jacket.

The fixed hood is fully insulated and will fit over or under a climbing helmet and you get high quality YKK zips throughout. When not required the Nimbus will pack into its own pocket and stash almost unnoticed into your pack making it perfect jacket for all winter mountain activities.

    Yes, this jacket is great for me...Being vegan now, I no longer wanted to wear down....but still needed an insulating layer for winter. What made things even better, was how speedy Trekkit was at processing and delivering my order. Id had bad online ordering experience from a cycling retailer recently....Trekkit has restored my faith in online puchasing! Id definitly recommend them :-)

    Perfect jacket ordered as a gift for my daughter. Loved ordering from a not too far away family run company! Communication was fab and delivery was good too! Love the reward scheme and return policy. Myself and my family will use trekitt again!

    Super jacket as expected but as a first time customer, what was a very pleasant surprise was the amazing customer service from Trekitt team. Great advice and service, without any pressure. In store my size wasn’t in stock so was offered one in store later that day but as I was rushing ordered on line and it arrived very quickly. Had an after sales query which again was dealt with brilliantly in store by helpful, friendly staff. What a fabulous shop! People - don’t waste time googling cheaper deals as you won’t find them and why gamble on poor customer service when this store is so fantastic? Thank you Trekitt team. What a super buying experience! All too rare these days sadly.

    Lovely jacket, light yet warm and the neck and hood are great. I hesitated to order it as I really wanted the ink colour as my friend has it in berry but it’s lovely. I just hope she doesn’t mind!

    I havent actually worn it on the hills so it is hard to judge yet. It feels light and lovely and I know I will appreciate the longish back which will keep my bottom warm! My only potential gripe is that when the hood is up the jacket gapes a bit at the neck which could be draughty and annoying (I wish hoods would always have toggles) so Ill probably have to use a scarf or add a popper to solve the problem if it does turn out to be annoying. I have a RAB Altus jacket so I know how comfortable RAB gear is.
