Rab Black Ascent Jacket
The Ascent Jacket is a fully featured, water-resistant down jacket, using 650FP European Duck Down, designed for winter mountaineering and cold weather climbing use.
The Ascent Jacket shares a similar feature set to the Neutrino Endurance, but features 650FP Hydrophobic Duck Down within a stitch-through baffle construction. We have been able to shed weight by using an updated, water-resistant Pertex® Endurance outer fabric, and light-weight YKK® zips throughout. A unique feature of the Ascent Jacket is the separate down-filled collar with a tricot fleeced lining, keeping your face protected from the elements and providing increased levels of warmth. Designed specifically for winter climbing, the Ascent Jacket also features a helmet-compatible hood, anti-snag Velcro adjustable cuffs and a stuff sack for increased packability.

RAB BLACK ASCENT JACKET
"WE ARE THE MOUNTAIN PEOPLE"
Rab is a United Kingdom mountaineering clothing and camping equipment manufacturer and supplier.
The company was founded in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, by mountaineer Rab Carrington. Their story began in 1981 in the attic of a small, terraced house in Sheffield where Rab Carrington made the first sleeping bag to bear his name. Hand-stitched and devised with his own ingenious eye, Rab's experience from years spent in the mountains was apparent in his designs, and soon there was popular demand from Rab's friends and the growing local climbing community.
But things didn't stop there. Word soon spread, and the Sheffield attic became a factory floor, creating sleeping bags and jackets for customers far and wide. Now, decades later, those honest, hard-wearing designs can be found all over the world; wherever adventurous individuals face up to the elements. From Himalayan peaks to cold, crisp evenings around a camp fire.
