  • Where is it made?


    Thanks so much for your question. So the Pertex Quantum Pro fabric itself as well as the construction of the jacket shell is made in the Rab factory in China. All the down work, stuffing and sealing is done in Derbyshire UK. 

    I hope this helps but if i can help further please don't hesitate to get in touch at

  • hi is waterproof or water-resistant


    This Rab Expedition 8000 Jacket is water-resistant but NOT waterproof. It uses Pertex Quantum Pro fabric which is water and weather resistant and is not all seam sealed. The reason they do this is that the jacket is designed to be used below freezing so the chances of liquid water on it is low. Also having this fabric means it can pass more water vapour or moisture out (ie. breathes better) than a fully waterproof membrane. So it keeps you and the insulation dryer and therefore warmer than if you were a little damper from condensation. Not seam sealing also reduces a lot of weight on a jacket like this. It still maintains it's windproofness via the boxwall construction and seam style however. 

    I hope that answers your question but if not feel free to get in touch on or 02 9264 5888 and we're more than happy to help.
