The Nimbus Jacket is a quick drying insulated jacket with a lightweight Pertex Quantum shell. Rab's Cirrus insulation offers down style lofting with the wet weather insulating performance of a synthetic, making it perfect for cold and damp environments. In terms of warmth in the Cirrus range, the Nimbus is the next step down from the Nebula Pro but a step up from the Altus.

 

Description  Features

A technical all-rounder ideal for cold days at the crag and winter walking, the Nimbus is a quick-drying insulated jacket designed to handle cold and damp environments.

With a lightweight and windproof Pertex® Quantum fabric, the Nimbus Jacket can be worn as an outer or mid layer. Our Cirrus™ insulation lofts like down, with the wet weather insulating performance of a synthetic. Technical features include an over or under helmet hood with stretch binding and peak, front zip with insulated baffle, and elasticated cuffs to maximise warmth. With one zipped internal security pocket, and two zipped handwarmer pockets, the left side doubles as an integrated stuff sack which can be clipped to a harness or backpack.

Lightweight and packable, the Nimbus Jacket is easy to care for and well suited to the damp, cold and changeable conditions experienced in the UK hills.

 
  • Pertex® Quantum windproof outer fabric
  • Hyperlite™ 100% Nylon rip-stop lining
  • Cirrus™ powered by 3M featherless insulation
  • Stitch-through mini-baffles
  • Over or under helmet hood with stretch binding and peak
  • YKK® VISLON® front zip with insulated baffle
  • 2 YKK® zipped handwarmer pockets, left side doubles as integrated stuff sack
  • 1 YKK® zipped internal security pocket
  • Elasticated cuffs
  • Hem drawcord

The Rab Nimbus Jacket is perfect as a winter climbing and belay jacket as it's insulated with Cirrus powered by 3M featherless insulation which closely mimics the look and performance of down while maintaining its warmth, even when wet. The stitch-through baffle construction ensures that the moisture-repelling insulation doesn't spread or bunch, preventing cold spots from forming.

The Nimbus Jacket has great technical features such as elasticated lycra cuffs, an adjustable hem cord and a helmet compatible hood which can be worn under or over a helmet with a lycra binding. The jacket also has plenty of storage pockets with 1 zipped internal security pocket for handy essentials and 2 large zipped hand warmer pockets. The left side pocket also doubles as an integrated stuff sack for increased packability.

The latest incarnation of the Rab Nimbus Jacket has had some slight tweaks. It's now warmer than before thanks to the extra 30g of insulation and has been re-cut and re-styled for an improved fit. In terms of warmth in the Cirrus range, the Nimbus is the next step down from the Nebula Pro but a step up from the Altus.

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.
