A lightweight jacket designed for active use in cold or variable weather, the Rab Strata Hoody is great for mountaineering, alpine climbing, mountain walking, and more. Highly breathable and water-resistant, it features a Pertex Microlight outer and 3 ounces of 80 g/m2 Polartec Alpha insulation. Plus, this version (updated in the winter of 2015) boasts some new additions that make it even more versatile. Along with a roll-down anti-snag Velcro tab, two YKK reverse-zippered side pockets, and Lycra-bound cuffs, it has a subtly quilted construction to reduce fabric movement and improve performance in the outdoors. The Strata Hoody weighs 18 ounces in the men’s large, and packs down into its own chest pocket.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of sizes (Men’s XS – XXL, Women’s XS – L) and colors (Ebony, Maya, or Rust in Men’s; Ebony or Ink in Women’s). Limited units available.
Originally developed for the US Special Forces as an advanced insulating material in combat uniforms, Polartec Alpha regulates your core body temperature during both dynamic and static activities. Thanks to its superior breathability, you won’t need to shed or add layers when you’re on the move. Plus, it’s lightweight, fast-drying, and highly packable.
Rab was founded by Scottish mountaineer Rab Carrington in 1980s—but the seed for the company was planted much earlier. In 1973, Carrington found himself in Buenos Aires, his expedition to Patagonia aborted due to a UK dock strike that had delayed the arrival of his equipment. He decided to stick around, and took up work sewing sleeping bags for the Argentinian army. Today, those skills and ethos of adventure can be seen in Rab’s full line of performance clothing, sleeping bags, mountaineering tents, and extreme expedition gear.
