Crafted with decades of insulation expertise, Rab's warmest, lightest and most-packable belay jacket excels when the elements are at their worst. With advanced Insulation Type and fabric technology, it’s made for gnarly Scottish winter conditions.

Rab says

Designed for climbing, winter mountaineering and all cold weather adventures, this insulated, weather resistant jacket thrives when the elements are at their worst.

Having spent decades on the sharp end in challenging and bone-chilling conditions, we know that Insulation Type provides unrivalled warmth in wet weather. That’s why we’ve strategically body mapped two weights of PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation with Cross Core™ Technology throughout this jacket for maximum warmth where you need it most. The PrimaLoft® fibres are infused with Aerogel, an ultra-low-density material composed of 95% air that was originally engineered to insulate space shuttles! We’ve combined this highly effective insulator with an outer of durable, abrasion and weather resistant Pertex® Quantum Pro Diamond Fuse fabric, made from diamond shaped filaments that lock seamlessly together creating a snag resistant flat surface. The Generator Alpine jacket offers unrivalled protection from the wildest storms in the most rugged terrain.

The jacket features a two-way front zip with oversized puller, an adjustable, helmet compatible hood with stiff peak, oversized cuffs to accommodate burly winter gloves, an internal stuff pocket for stashing gloves, and tactically positioned, harness-friendly hand pockets. The jacket has articulated sleeves to enable full range of movement and a drawcord hem to adjust the fit.
