The Latok is built to withstand the worst conditions you might encounter. Whether on wet, cold walks or mountain top ascents this jacket will keep out the elements. A large helmet compatible hood, two large chest pockets, huge pit zips and easy to use zips are just some of the great features of this jacket.
A very durable and amazingly practical jacket that is perfect for those needing a jacket that can go anywhere and do anything in conditions that would put most people off leaving the house.

Rab's 2017 Latok Jacket is a high quality waterproof shell designed to perform in the harshest conditions. The use of durable eVent materials give the jacket a strong, solid feel. The use of AquaGuard zips further enforce the idea that it's designed for bad weather. The hem, cuffs and hood are all adjustable so you can make sure the rain, wind or snow don't get in and spoil the experience. It's not the most breathable jacket but it works well enough and an effective layering system underneath this reduces this issue significantly in most situations.
The hood is helmet compatible and without a helmet it certainly seems a touch on the large side. However, it is easily adjusted and in cold conditions you'll often wear a hat anyway and this hood makes wearing that favourite bobble hat much more comfortable under this hood. Two large chest pockets provide enough space for whatever you need at hand. The extra long pit zips extend most of the way down the arms providing you with loads of ventilation. All of the zips are perfectly designed so that they can easily be used while you are wearing big winter gloves which is great.
This jacket is not lightweight but feels really tough and hard wearing. If you are after a light, packable emergency waterproof shell look elsewhere. This is a strong, durable shell that will stand up to severe weather conditions and real punishment from you, your kit and your activities. This is my ideal winter shell jacket and although I've used it through wet and windy conditions I can't wait to get into the mountains over winter with the Latok.
