The Rab Axion Down Jacket basically replaces the Ascent Jacket. It still features 650FP Hydrophobic Duck Down within a stitch-through baffle construction and a water resistant Pertex Endurance outer shell, but with a few small tweaks.
The hood and and cuffs are filled with Pyrotec synthetic insulation. A great idea as the hood and cuffs are usually the first to get wet and as we all know, down doesn't work so well when wet. Where as synthetic insulation will carry on keeping you warm, even when wet.
With 280g of 650FP down, it's very warm for it's weight but also relatively light and is fantastic value for money.
