The Rab Axion is a stitch through down jacket with a durable water resistant Pertex Endurance outer for cold weather mountain use.

Rab says:

Whether you're exploring snow topped hills or making the most of a cold day on the rock, our Axion is your hardwearing down jacket.

Perfect for cold belays and winter walking the Axion Jacket is reassuringly warm. Filled with 650 fill power hydrophobic down, the outer is designed using the durable and water resistant Pertex Endurance, ensuring you stay snug even as the temperatures drop.

Alongside this both the hood and cuffs are made from Pyrotec - a synthetic insulation that will dry quickly on the occasions you are caught in damper weather. Fully adjustable with features such as a helmet compatible hood and two-way zip the Axion is a winter workhorse with all the features you need to shelter from the cold.

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.

That's what I need

Great down jacket! I wore them on ice skating trips on Lake Baikal, put it on in the morning and in the evening, it works great! Together with Rab thermal underwear and fleece jacket, I was not at all cold, even at -25C. Also packaged in small size. I plan to take it on autumn trips for cold days. Recommend!
