The Microlight Vest is a lightweight, micro baffled, hydrophobic-down filled vest. It is a fantastic option for anyone wanting extra mid layer warmth at minimum weight and packsize. The streamlined shape offers a great fit with no excess fabric - perfect as a mid layer for hill, mountain or ski use - ideal to be paired with a waterproof or windproof outer layer.

Description  Features

Lightweight micro stitch-through vest with Pertex® outer for moderately cold conditions.

The versatile Microlight Vest is a lightweight down gilet designed to provide core warmth where weight and packability are prime concerns.

An ideal booster layer for climbers and an adaptable standalone gilet for day-to-day use, the Microlight Vest is made with windproof and breathable Pertex® Quantum outer fabric. Using a micro stitch-through baffle construction and 750 fill power ethically-sourced hydrophobic down, the Microlight Vest provides exceptional warmth and freedom of movement. Two hand pockets are harness compatible and a chest pocket is easily accessible to store your essentials.

Packing away into its own stuff sack the Microlight Vest can be easily attached to your harness or daysack.

 
  • Rab® Fluorocarbon free Hydrophobic Down developed in conjunction with Nikwax®
  • Micro stitch-through baffle construction
  • YKK® reverse coil front zip with insulated zip baffle and chin guard
  • 2 YKK® reverse coil harness compatible hand pockets
  • YKK® reverse coil chest pocket
  • Elasticated armhole opening construction
  • Hem construction with dual draw cord adjustment
  • Stuff sack

Rab's Microlight range of down garments are designed to replace a fleece, providing similar levels of warmth for about 40% less weight. The RAB Microlight Vest is no exception - narrow baffles and high quality down ensures it has awesome insulation value for its weight.

The Microlight Vest - despite its low weight - doesn't scrimp on features. This version also comes with a separate stuff sack for easy storage. The down is high quality 750 fill Hydrophobic European Goose down and you get 110g (size L) of it to keep you warm.

The latest incarnation of the Rab Microlight Vest has some slight tweaks with an improved fit and the pocket openings being placed at a more comfortable angle.

UK Orders

We aim to ship all orders placed before 3pm Monday to Friday, on the same day. Free shipping is offered for UK Orders over £15 order value. The form of shipping will be at our discretion and will be at the most cost effective service. For most parcels this will be Royal Mail Second Class Post, the timescale for delivery is not guaranteed but Royal Mail aim to deliver second class post in 3-4 working days. Some parcels may require a signature.

Faster Tracked Services

Faster shipping options can be purchased at the checkout - see the drop down menu, First Class post is available, as is Next Working Day Delivery. We can arrange Next Day Delivery for a Saturday (when the order is placed on Friday) - call us for charges on an individual basis (01740 661467).

EU Orders

We aim to ship all orders placed before 3pm the same day. The default shipping is 'Standard Delivery'. This is an airmail service which does not offer tracking but is very reliable. We have learned from experience that transit times for non-UK orders can be very unpredictable. To geographically close countries in Europe the times are generally up to 4-5 days but can sometimes take a lot longer - we don't know why.

So, for EU Orders over £15 in value we offer FREE delivery, but the service time is unpredictable. If you need your order by a specific date you can opt for a faster service at the checkout.

Faster Tracked Services

Faster tracked shipping options can be purchased at the checkout - see the drop down menu on the checkout page for options. Typically the service we can offer is 2,3 or 4 working days, if you require a faster delivery than is showing on the drop down menu please contact us at info@worldbackpacker.co.uk as we may be able to help.

Rest of World Orders

We aim to ship all orders placed before 3pm the same day. The default shipping charge is 'Standard Delivery'. This is an airmail service which does not offer tracking but is very reliable. We have learned from experience that transit times for non-UK orders can be very unpredictable. To geographically close countries in the times are generally up to 4-5 days but can take a lot longer - we don't know why. Countries farther afield generally take longer but the spread of transit times is amazing, we have been notified of parcels arriving in Australia after 3 days and others taking a month and (rarely) longer than this.

So, while the shipping options for ROW are quite cheap the service time is unpredictable.
