A new synthetic jacket made from 100% recycled materials by Rab Equipment, the Cirrus Alpine Jacket solves many of the problems modern mountain men and women grapple with. Synthetic insulation is seeing constant progress right now as manufacturers try to match the warmth-to-weight ratio of down, which led to Rab creating its synthetic Cirrus insulation for this jacket.

It was noticeably lighter than it looked when I first put it on and fits more comfortably than many similar jackets I’ve tried in recent years, especially the hood. It’s warm, light, versatile in wet mountain conditions, and better for the planet.
