The Photon X Jacket is a warm, water resistant and durable synthetic insulated jacket with PrimaLoft Gold insulation Active and a Pertex shell for winter belays or for use in cold, damp conditions.
Durable and exceptionally warm, our Photon X is your definitive Scottish winter belay jacket.
Ready to take on everything from sub-zero temperatures to bitter, battering winds our Photon X provides shelter in the harshest conditions. Shrugging off rain and snow, the Pertex Endurance outer protects you from the elements while the zoned PrimaLoft Gold Insulation Active inner eliminates any cold spots even when wet.
With two large hand warmer pockets, a helmet-compatible hood that can be adjusted with one hand and zips that can be opened easily with large mitts, there is no better jacket for a baltic Scottish belay.

Rab's updated Photon X Jacket now utilizes the new 'Active' PrimaLoft Gold insulation, with higher breathability and no need for quilting, so no cold spots. The 'Active' insulation also features a 4-way stretch, producing garments with greater freedom of movement. Perfect for belaying in winter.
The Photon X used to have a technical hood but it now features a bigger hood which has more depth which is ideal for layering over a helmet. They have also added large zip pulls which makes opening and closing zips a whole lot easier when wearing thick gloves.
It's still one of Rab's heavier PrimaLoft pieces as it's nearly 400 grams heavier than the Xenon Jacket but of course a lot warmer as it features 170g (m2) insulation throughout with added insulation in the front torso.
