Named OutdoorGearLab’s Editors’ Choice for “Best Synthetic Insulated Jacket” three years running, the Rab Xenon X Hoodie is designed for fast-and-light adventures in the alpine. Weighing just under 14 ounces, this technical puffy is made from lightweight Pertex Quantum fabric and insulated with 2 ounces of 60 g/m2 PrimaLoft Gold. The Lycra-bound hood can be worn over or under your helmet, while the full-length YKK front zipper goes up to your nose to really seal out the cold. When the clouds part, the Xenon X stuffs neatly into its own chest pocket.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of colors between Ebony, Ink, or Rust in Men's; or Aubergine or Ink in Women's.
The Xenon X’s slim fit makes for easy use with a climbing harness, as well as comfortable layering under a larger jacket when the forecast calls for it. Elastic cuffs slide over your gloves to keep snow from creeping in, while the internal insulated baffle, chin guard, and hemline drawcord ensure you’re nice and cozy without limiting mobility. Two hand pockets and one chest pocket complete the package.
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.
