Whether you're making an ascent on a snow-capped mountain or climbing on a chilly fall day, the Rab Women's Ascent Down Jacket provides lightweight warmth to keep you toasty without weighing you down. Wear it by itself for everyday excursions or layer it under a technical shell in harsh weather--either way, you'll love the comfy and cozy feel. Its Pertex Endurance fabric is water-resistant, windproof, and very breathable so you don't have to take off your jacket to get some air while you're working to reach the top of the mountain. Insulated with low-profile 650-fill European duck down, the Ascent is surprisingly warm despite its light weight. The down also makes it easy to pack this jacket; stuff it into its included stuff sack and stash it into a tiny corner of your backpack when you just want to wear the Ascent for your descent. Plus, it has a hydrophobic treatment to prevent it from getting soggy and losing its insulating properties in wet weather. The Ascent's hood has a wired peak to keep the elements out while offering an uninhibited field of vision, is helmet compatible, and has the same lightweight insulation as the rest of the jacket to keep your head nice and toasty. The nylon liner boosts durability, and the tricot-lined collar is soft against your neck and chin. Its hook-and-loop cuffs and drawcord hem tighten this jacket down so you don't have wind blowing up your sleeves and body. The hand-warmer pockets are lined with fleece to keep your hands cozy as they warm up from the winter chill.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
