Rab Men's Latok Jacket

Rab Men's Latok Jacket 5 5 4 4
Quality waterproof for the constant hiker Event fabric does exactly what it says and keeps you bone try. The jacket has many clever features including long sleeves (so when you reach up above you the sleeves don't ride down your arm!) and a lengthier cut at the back to ensure your back and bum don't get exposed when crouching. With plentiful pockets and quality design of each zip, pocket and wired hood, this jacket should be the only one you need for fair weather hiking. In colder conditions a down jacket might be a better option. 01 April 2014
Great 4 season jacket A great 4 season jacket, That you would expect from Rab, very durable and Ideal for all conditions. 15 March 2014
Top Features, Great Value I bought this item in a sale for £200, to replace a 7 year old GoreTex shell, so the value was fantastic. I bought it for skiing (I no longer buy a ski specific jacket, preferring to layer up) and it performed perfectly. The drop-tail provides good coverage and even though I have long arms, the sleeve length was generous, ensuring there was no chilly gap between cuffs and gloves! A problem I had found with my old GoreTex shell was a build-up of moisture inside during high levels of exertion, but this eVent jacket does not appear to suffer the same issues – in extreme circumstances if moisture is found to be an issue the pit-zips should allow sufficient ventilation to manage the moisture. The 4 external pockets are a good size and although I have not carried an OS map yet while wearing the jacket, they do easily fit in 2 of them (I checked!). There are 2 internal pockets one with no closure – presumably a temporary home for gloves or a hat; the other has a vertical zip down one side and is a good size, not quite iPad but probably about Samsung Note sized – although beware, it is not sealed from internal moisture The hood is a good fit and the draw cords are neatly tethered to avoid you being whipped to death in a gale – this benefit should not be under-estimated, it sounds a bit trivial or daft but buy a jacket without tethered draw cords at your peril! I have worn the jacket several times while it snowed “wet snow” all day in the Alps and found it to be totally waterproof with the melting snow flakes beading and running off; only time will tell if this continues as the jacket gets older, but it is a good start… I would definitely recommend this jacket and would buy it again (assuming not superseded).. 03 March 2014
Great technical fit and temperature balance For the money you'd expect to get a lot and the Latok doesn't dissapoint. The underarm cut is superb and the fit excellent so there is plenty of movement for swinging your axes. Bomb water proofing and breathability is better in my opinion than any goretex garment I've owned. Used with a base and midlayer in winter conditions this jacket was more than up to the job. 26 July 2012
