The Altus Vest is a new lightweight Cirrus synthetic insulated vest, designed for use in cold, damp and changeable environments.

Rab says:

Cirrus™ synthetic insulation combines the warmth and weight benefits of down with the wet-weather performance of synthetics. Designed primarily for use in changeable unknown conditions, the Altus can be worn as an outer or mid-layer. The slim fit and elasticated armholes lend it to technical climbing and the ultra-lightweight and durable Pertex® Quantum fabric will stand up to the toughest routes.

Rab's Altus Vest is basically the Nimbus Jacket but without the hood and sleeves. It's filled with Cirrus which is the new breakthrough insulation which combines almost all the key benefits of natural down and synthetic fillings, whilst avoiding their limitations. It will keep it's warmth for longer than other insulation, even after multiple washes.

It's perfect for winter climbing and belaying as it has elasticated armholes for greater freedom of movement. The stitch-through baffle construction ensures that the moisture-repelling insulation doesn't spread or bunch, preventing cold spots from forming. In terms of features, it has an adjustable hem drawcord, 1 zipped internal security pocket for handy essentials and 2 large zipped hand warmer pockets. The left side pocket also doubles as an integrated stuff sack for increased packability.
