Rab Altus Vest

Walk rating

Price: £100.00

Weight: 260g

+ This gilet is soft and lightweight but reassuringly warm. The synthetic insulation works well even when wet and dries quickly. The cut is feminine, with a generous drop hem at the back. There are useful deep pockets too, one of which doubles as a stuff sack.

- It is slightly bulkier than other gilets here, with thicker baffles.

VERDICT:  So soft and cosy that it feels like a down garment. The attention to detail and quality is superb and the women’s cut is flattering.
