The women's Rab Paradox Insulated Jacket is an excellent layering piece as it's highly breathable, highly packable and dries fast. It is designed to be worn in cold conditions as a layering piece, or as a stand-alone piece in warmer conditions. I's made from Polartec Alpha insulation which is designed to be worn when you are active - so on the move - there are alternative insulation garments that are more suited to wearing around camp - Polartec Alpha is about keeping you vented even though you are also being kept insulated.
Its quite a breakthrough, especially for cold weather walking when you need insulation but start sweating hard when you reach a strenuous bit. Weight for weight Polartec Alpha is only about half as warm as Primaloft so the king of insulation keeps its crown - but Alpha has its place - I recently wore an Alpha garment all day while walking in Corsica in particularly cold conditions and stayed warm & comfortable for the duration - I kept checking my baselayer, which stayed completely dry.
The jacket features YKK zips throughout, elasticated cuffs and a soft chin guard for increased comfort and protection. It's made from such soft, lightweight fabrics, you wont want to take it off!
