The Men's Exile Jacket from Rab is a durable, wind-resistant Polartec Wind Pro fleeced jacket, designed for climbing and active use in varied conditions. The Exile jacket can be used as a great mid layer, perfect for any alpine climber or those who ski tour who are using the layering system and want an extra layer under their shell jacket.
It utilises a Polartec Wind Pro fabric with Hardface Technology, providing four times more wind resistance than traditional microfleece, whilst maintaining extremely high levels of breathability as well as durability. Climbing specific features include a lycra bound under-helmet hood and low bulk Polartec Power Stretch Pro inserts at the back of the neck and at the cuffs, to further increase freedom of movement. Polartec Hardface Technology increases water and abrasion resistance, making it ideal for dry weather climbing, as well as creating a smooth surface for easier layering in more adverse conditions.

Rab Carrington built his company on two things: A deep understanding of what climbers and mountaineers need, and a commitment to practical gear that works. Throughout much of the 1970’s Rab could be found on ground breaking expeditions around the world. From winter climbing in Scotland and the alps, to expeditions in the Himalaya, Rab gained first-hand experience and understanding what climbers need from their kit.
In 1981 the native Scotsman moved to Sheffield to set up Rab. By first deciding how gear should be used, then designing for that use, Rab was able to produce specialist down sleeping bags and jackets with fresh dimension suitable for high performance mountaineering gear, offering products better than any other available at the time.
Jump ahead 25 years and Rab are still at the forefront of innovation and performance. From their super lightweight bivi bags to tough, waterproof and breathable eVent™ jackets, Rab have created some of the most hardwearing and specialist kit in the world. Rab are still to this day designed and produced within the UK, using the highest quality, lightweight materials to create award winning products.
