      Comments about Generator Alpine Jacket - Men's:

      This has been a great jacket for alpine climbing in potentially damp conditions, like those commonly found in the New Zealand alps. It sheds moisture well until it's really raining, and even then it stays warm.
      Sleeves are longer than usually found on a size small, which is great for me - and doesn't leave you with cold wrists. Plenty of pockets including a mesh interior pocket for gloves (almost like it's been designed by a climber!). Hood will fit over a helmet (just) and rolls down out the way when not in use. Collar will cover up to your nose with a soft lining if it's zipped all the way up.
      It's also long enough in the body to sit under a harness well.

      Only real downside is the fit. It just feels a little big and baggy width-wise around the torso. Great if you're using it as a belay jacket (can unzip from the bottom for this), but not good if you're trying to climb in it as you can't see anything on your harness. Otherwise, perfect - has become my go to synthetic jacket.

        Comments about Generator Alpine Jacket - Men's:

        This is Rab's latest version of the midweight synthetic puffy hooded jacket. It is clearly designed for mountaineering use, as the hood is superbly functional for the helmeted mountaineer. The design and fit are AWESOME. There is an inner right chest pocket an outer left napoleon pocket, and two handwarmer pockets. The zippers are designed to be water resistant.

        I'm only 5'8" with a 40 inch chest, and the medium fits great. Since Rab does not offer regular and tall sizing, I would guess the sleeves length on this jacket would easily fit someone who was 6'2" I have short legs (29" inseam) and a longer torso, but the hem of this jacket comes down to my crotch and the drop tail easily covers my butt. Thankfully, the two-way zipper allows for plenty of versatility when I'm wearing a harness.

        My ONE and ONLY complaint about this jacket might be the reason why some people buy it. The Pertex Endurance outer shell is not very breathable. I feel clammy and under any sort of exertion. I have other 100-weight Primaloft hoodies, and the difference in breathability is obvious. Pertex Endurance has a MVTR of only 7000 g/m^2/day. Modern waterproof shell fabrics have MVTRs exceeding 20000 g/m^2/day.

        If you don't carry a waterproof shell, and you're in a lot of wet weather (Pacific NW), this jacket may be the way to go. However, if you're carrying a full pack with a separate waterproof shell, I would suggest you consider a more breathable and versatile alternative.

          Very well made jacket. Sleeves are plenty long. I am 6 foot, 165lbs and a medium fits me perfect. Not too baggy, but plenty of room to layer underneath. Traveling the world in a bunch of different climates, I think this will prove to be an extremely versatile jacket to have in any outdoor arsenal.

            Q:

            How does RAB Generator Alpine Jacket run size wise? I would normally order large if they are cut as regular sizing as supposed to trim, slim or fitted. I'm a 43 in suit jacket. Thanx,

              A large in this coat will fit someone with a 43 inch chest and a 34 inch waist. If you have a 46 inch chest, go up a size to the XL.

              A:

              The Rab Generator Alpine Jacket runs true to size, but to find your true size, you will need to measure your chest, waist and arm length and compare that to their sizing chart.
