The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

I originally borrowed this jacket on my first summit trip up Mt. Rainier. After the trip, I immediately went home and bought it, and it has become a staple of my wardrobe. I use it for rock climbing, mountaineering, backcountry skiing, and looking dang good when I walk to class in freezing Rexburg weather.

What really stood out to me originally was how light and low profile it was, without sacrificing features. I hate big, obnoxious coats and jackets. This jacket is form-fitting, without being tight. It has 3 zippers that are necessary for pocket snacks while skiing or mountaineering. The hood is helmet-compatible, which is necessary to keep those ears warm while mountaineering or backcountry skiing.

What has impressed me more than anything, though, is the durability. I think it’s pretty obvious to all of us that a mountaineering down jacket is going to be warm, or else it won’t ever sell. What you wouldn’t expect is its ability to withstand EVERYTHING. I literally crawled through tiny holes in a cave for 6 hours, and I came out with a tiny nick on the jacket. I expected it to be shredded afterward. Next to that, the tree skiing I do and the climbing I love don’t do more than a scratch to the jacket.

If you want a light jacket that will keep you warm on the mountain or around town yet will hold up with any beating you give it, you NEED to try out the Rab Microlight.

Ideal for
  • Staying super light and super warm at the same time
  • Looking great on the mountain
  • Lasting an eternity through rough conditions. I literally crawled through an extremely tight cave for 6 hours and came out with hardly any damage.
Not ideal for
  • This is not meant to replace a shell. While it's treated to not soak up water, it's not waterproof

This classic lightweight down jacket has been updated with a fresh design aesthetic and 100% recycled fabric and down, making it an eco-friendly choice. The Pertex® Quantum ripstop nylon fabrics are soft and packable, while the zoned lightweight micro and nano baffle stitch-through construction ensures maximum insulation.

  • Windproof: Made from Pertex® Quantum fabric, this jacket is highly windproof.
  • Packable: The highly packable design makes it easy to store in your backpack or luggage.

Great Advice

Mike was really helpful when I needed to buy a snowboard! New to the sport, there is a lot of vocabulary I don't know yet, and although I have certain goals I had no idea which board was best for me. He was really responsive and felt very honest when communicating. I really appreciated it! Honestly wouldn't have found a board as fit for my needs without the consultation

I was completely overwhelmed with trying to find the right ski gear. I recently switched from snowboarding to skiing, so I understand the importance of buying the right gear for your skill level. Tommy was so helpful and didn’t make me feel silly for asking questions. Also, he nailed the recommendations right off the bat. He found options at and surprisingly below my budget. I can’t wait to hit the slopes! Thank you, Tommy!

Awesome experience from an awesome guy!
5 /5
I originally had some boards in mind and after talking to Ben I realized that my selection was no where near what I needed for the way I ride. He hooked me up with some great recommendations and answered all of the many questions I had along the way. I highly recommend asking Ben about anything snowboard related, he’s very knowledgeable and definitely knows his stuff!

One of my main constraints of shopping for a board was that I wanted a cute design. Cody went above and beyond finding me a board that would work for me, laid out multiple options and talked in depth about how each option would fit into my riding style. Cody picked out the ladies choice, which has been a phenomenal board so far, and I'm excited to continue riding it into the season.

Shannon provided some awesome service. Super friendly and very helpful. Can tell she knows her stuff about skis. We need more people like Shannon in the retail industry. Definitely came away from our chat with peace of mind and some sick product recs. Give Shannon 7 days paid vacation to go shred she deserves it :)
