Rab Continuum Down Hooded Jacket

The new and improved Continuum Jacket is a super lightweight hooded down jacket with mini stitch-through baffle construction and a revised styling and fit. 

Rab says:

Super light-weight hooded Jacket with mini stitch through baffle construction for very low bulk warmth.

Rab have updated the Continuum Jacket and made it even better. Not only have they improved the styling and fit, they've also managed to add extra down into the fill without really adding to the weight. They did ditch the chest pocket but that's not a huge deal as you are still left with two good size hand warmer pockets.

It has about the same weight of slightly better quality down than the Microlight Alpine Jacket and yet its about 80grams lighter - so its clear where RAB have gone with this design - make the lightest jacket possible without skimping on design.

The Continuum Jacket should be slightly warmer too. Perhaps it didn't used to look as stylish as the Microlight in the past but now with it's new styling it looks just as good, it's now just the performance being the real differentiator.

Like a warm hug

For 2017 Rab have taken the already excellent Continuum jacket and made it even better. The Continuum has a very small pack size, making it perfect for carrying in your pack for a cold night in camp or for chilly lunch stops. The smooth but not too shiny shell fabric makes it easy to pull a shell jacket over the top. On unpacking from its stuff sack the down immediately lofts and you can tell it's going to be really warm and cosy. Putting the Continuum on is like a being wrapped up in a soft warm hug. It's so light that you hardly notice that you are wearing it but certainly appreciate the near instant benefit of the insulation. The hood has better adjustment than Rab's Microlight Alpine or Infinity G with a proper elasticated 3 point system that holds it close to your head. There would be room to fit a climbing helmet underneath the hood if needed. I can see myself using this jacket loads for everything from an emergency layer while mountain biking, to wearing around camp on a cool night, etc. Plus the jacket's smart styling makes it great for going to the pub on a wintery night without looking like the Pillsbury Doughboy.
