Rab Valiance Jacket Men
When it’s cold, windy and rainy outside, what you really need is a good old down jacket with some extra waterproofing. Cue the Rab Valiance Jacket, the perfect combination of a lightweight waterproof and a warm insulated mid-layer. This cosy 800-fil down parka is built with a 10k waterproof Pertex Shield outer and taped seams to keep out pesky rain and snow. Perfect for climbing and mountaineering in the UK, Rab's fluorocarbon-free DWR (developed with Nikwax), which coats the down filling and the outer shell, adds extra water-resistant reinforcements where you need it the most. Useful extras include large hand-warmer pockets, a stuff-sack and a helmet-compatible, wire-brimmed hood.

RDS Certified European Goose Down
While duck and goose down are some of the warmest natural materials known to man, the practice of procuring it can often be harmful to the animals involved. The Responsible Down Society is an independent standard agency that oversees safe, responsible farming (eg. No live plucking and quality animal welfare) of ducks and geese so we can feel warm without feeling guilty.
Nikwax® Hydrophobic Down
Nikwax® Hydrophobic Down is an environmentally-safe water-resistant down fill that absorbs 90% less water than goose down, keeping you warm and protected even in wet and extreme conditions. This down uses no harmful fluorocarbons, and has a higher resistance to packing.
