The Continuum Hoodie achieves similar levels of warmth than RAB's Microlight but manages to shed about 80grams of weight - it does this by using the lightest fabrics available.
RAB says: The Women's Continuum Hoodie is a super light-weight down insulated hoodie, designed for fast-and-light activities, offering very low-bulk warmth.
Our lightest ever down hoodie, the Women's Continuum uses 112g (UK 12) of the highest quality 850FP Hydrophobic Goose Down to provide exceptional levels of warmth, whilst the Pertex® Quantum GL fabric helps to keep weight as minimal as possible. Perfect for fast-and-light activities, both in the mountains and elsewhere, the Women's Continuum Hoodie features a helmet-compatible hood with a flexible polymer peak, YKK font zip with insulated zip baffle, and a YKK zipped chest pocket that doubles as an integrated stuff sack.

RAB's Continuum Hoodie has about the same weight of slightly better quality down than the Microlight Alpine Jacket and yet its about 80grams lighter - so its clear where RAB have gone with this design - make the lightest jacket possible without skimping on design - such as with the two handwarmer pockets.
The Continuum Hoodie should be slightly warmer too. Perhaps not as stylish as the Microlight its the performance that's the real differentiator.
