The Rab Microlight is one of the more durable and well-rounded jackets in this review. It performs solidly across all metrics and is very comfortable. It also allows for an excellent range of movement and resists abrasion. It also earns a lot of compliments around town. As a result of Rab's high-quality materials and their high manufacturing standards, the Microlight Alpine is well made. The Pertex Quantum material seals out wind well and keeps still air inside, which increases warmth beyond what we normally expect from the 750 fill down in this jacket. We love to wear it around town or layer it under a hardshell when the going gets tough. It's a great all-around down jacket that could spend all day outside and still look clean and sharp, even when we felt dirty and exhausted.
