ISPO Award 2022 for Mythic Ultra Jacket GearJunkie’s “Best in Show” for Mythic Ultra Jacket
/OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – British outdoor brand Rab (owned by Equip Outdoor Technologies Ltd.) has received two prestigious industry and media awards for their new Mythic Ultra Jacket in their recently launched AW22 collection. Providing extraordinary warmth for the minimum weight, the new Mythic Ultra down jacket featuring TILT technology and ultralight, 100% recycled Pertex® Quantum fabric, scooped up both an ISPO Award 2022 and GearJunkie’s “Best in Show” celebrating future-leading technology and construction.
The Mythic Ultra Jacket reflects Rab’s pioneering spirit. By combining their own heat-reflective TILT technology with lightweight, 100% recycled Pertex® Quantum fabric and 900FP down, it offers next-level warmth in an ultralight package. Built with a body-mapped box wall and stitch-through baffles, it optimizes heat retention around the core while maximizing mobility through the arms. The 900FP European goose down inside is ultra-high lofting and treated with a Nikwax fluorocarbon-free hydrophobic treatment. This down is RDS certified by Control Union 842603. The RDS describes and independently certifies animal welfare practices in down and feather production from the farm to the final product. What’s more, the Mythic Ultra’s outer and lining are made of 100% recycled fabric with a fluorocarbon-free DWR finish. Offering cutting-edge efficiency to high-altitude athletes, this down jacket is made for those going fast, light, and vertical.
Tim Fish, Product Director at Rab, comments: “We are extremely honored by the awards for the Mythic Ultra Jacket. We have invested a huge amount of time in R&D to make sure these are some of the most technically advanced products on the market, covering the needs of ambitious alpinists in extreme conditions and incorporating environmentally conscious fabrics. We are incredibly grateful to have been recognized by leading industry experts and anticipate this will also benefit our retail partners once these products hit the shelves later this year.”
