Durable and hardwearing, the Rab Men's Asylum Jacket will ensure you stay toasty warm on cold days at the crag. Whether you are between routes enjoying a flask of tea pondering your next challenge or you are belaying a partner as they push their boundries, it's important to stay warm and this jacket will help you do just that.
A full length 2-way zip at the front of the jacket allows you full access to your harness by zipping from the bottom up, this allows you to maximise the warmth at the top of the jacket by being able to keep it zipped up. The hook & loop adjustment tabs at the cuff are great for keeping the cuffs of the jacket away from your hands and the eskimo style hood will shroud your head to keep you feeling toasty. A regular fit lets you wear the jacket over a base and mid layer.

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 over 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; and are ceaselessly committed to Rab’s exacting standards, ingenuity and pioneering spirit.
