The Rab Continuum for women gets the Nikwax treatment
Both men’s and women’s versions of the Continuum are now filled with Nikwax Hydrophobic Down, a solution for keeping down drier for longer that doesn’t use any of the increasingly controversial fluorocarbon chemicals.
The jacket is Rab’s lightest down option for women so far. It uses an 850 fill-power down that weighs just 100g in a jacket of only 240g altogether (size 12).
Again, like the men’s version, the jacket has a slim-fit so it can be worn comfortably underneath another layer. The cuffs are elasticated and there’s a hem drawcord, and it can be stuffed away into its chest pocket.
You’ll find this retailing now at £220.
