Rab Men's Arctus Down Parka

Choose a Size

Honed for hard work in the harshest weather and coldest climates, the new Arctus Parka is ultra-tough, down filled refuge, built with specially designed features for operating in extreme cold.

Developed with input from Arctic explorers and the people who live and work in the Polar regions, the Arctus is a do-it-all jacket, loaded with our toughest construction and our hallmark insulation expertise. Built for those stationed at remote outposts, living in cold climates, or exploring extremely cold environments, the Arctus Parka’s features are designed to help you operate more easily. Large patch pockets offer fuss-free storage and an insulated chest pocket for gadgets or snacks. Oversize zip pullers are easy to grab when wearing bulky gloves, aluminium D-rings can be attached to a skidoo kill switch, and a ventilated chin guard allows you to breathe easily without exposing skin or fogging goggles.

Built with a tough, ripstop outer the Arctus protects you from wind, sleet, and snow. Simple construction tweaks maintain performance but make it easier to repair in remote environments; the waterproof membrane is separate from outer and inner fabrics and is unattached to zips making for straightforward patch-ups if necessary, and drawcords are not sewn in for easy replacement.

Fit Descriptions

All garments are designed and fitted to suit their intended end use.  See below for a general description of our fit categories: 


A streamlined silhouette. Cut trim following the contours of the body. Expertly placed articulation of seams and the use of stretch fabric ensure maximum freedom of movement in these close-fitting items. 


Neither slim nor loose. Regular fit items are the perfect balance of form fit and ease of movement.  


Our more generous fit. Cut loosely through the body allowing for ease of movement and additional layering. 


Designed specifically to accommodate the layering system and equipment required for high altitude and polar expeditions.
