It’s a specialist piece for those who genuinely appreciate every gram saved yet require the high standards of performance needed to deal with harsh winter conditions.
It combines the highest quality 1000+ Fill Power European Goose Down with ultra-fine Pertex Quantum fabric for a super-lightweight insulation package. The Pertex Quantum outer is treated with a DWR (durable water-repellent) finish to ensure wind and moisture resistance.
The Zero G is also RDS Certified (Responsible Down Standard), meaning that the down it uses is from geese and ducks treated respectfully and ethically. This helps ensure the down isn’t subject to live-plucking and force-feeding.
Rab’s Zero G Jacket is a technical down jacket with an incredible warmth to weight ratio for alpine climbers and mountaineers. It features 1000 fill-power European goose down encased in Pertex 7d Quantum fabric and is one of the lightest insulation jackets around.
The Zero G uses RDS (Responsible Down Standard) Certified down, meaning it comes from geese and ducks treated ethically. This ensures that the down is not force-fed or live-plucking, two practices contributing to the shedding of feathers.
The Zero G also uses raglan sleeves instead of set-in, providing a more natural fit and structured feel. The raglan sleeves help to frame the body and face more naturally than a boxy puffy, and they also give this jacket a slim athletic fit that’s easy to put on.
Weighing little more than 300 grams and packing down just slightly larger than a can of soda, the Rab Zero G Jacket is an excellent choice for those who need to reduce their pack weight while maintaining high levels of warmth. It doesn’t sacrifice any nice-to-have features you would expect in a minimalist down jacket, such as hand warmer pockets and an adjustable hood with a flexible polymer brim.
