The Women's Photon Jacket is the Women's version of Rab's ever popular synthetic insulated jacket. The Photon Jacket combines weather resistant and lightweight Pertex® Microlight fabric and water resistant Primaloft® Eco fill in varying weights throughout the jacket to maximise warmth to weight. The Primaloft Eco is made of 50% recycled materials and so is more environemntally friendly without compromising performance.

The female specific cut also means that there is no excess 'baggy' fabric and further maximizes warmth. The adjustable hood and the hem drawcord mean the jacket can cinch in to provide fantastic protection from whatever the winter can throw at you!

With synthetic fill being ideal for wet conditions, the Photon Jackets offers warmth and low weight and small pack size making it ideal for cold winter mountain and hill walking, alpine climbs, backpacking or multi-pitch rock climbing, as well as just general day-to-day use. A true 'all-round' jacket for the outdoor enthusiast!

Backcountry Gear knows when planning for the elements women demand outdoor clothing that can stand up to their challenges. Because women have a plan. They plan to sweat, they plan to make the most of it, and they plan to come back better than they left.


Mountaineer, backpacker, runner, tent camper, whatever, we know you need the best outdoor clothing. You want the parkas, down jackets, shells, and fleeces by the best at affordable prices. And that doesn't mean skimping on style, either. With smart designs from outdoor leaders, Backcountry Gear makes it easy.


From casual to cardio, Backcountry Gear has the best gear for all-weather outdoor sports. The workhorse of any outdoor clothing collection, the softshell, is a cornerstone at BCG. We stock a range of water resistant, windproof softshells and hardface fleeces from Arc'Teryx, Marmot, and more. Those looking for waterproof hardshells won't be disappointed, either, whether looking for time-tested GORE-TEX options or any of the ultralight breathable fabrics like eVent, DryQ, or H2NO.


Women's shirts and tops are easy at Backcountry Gear. For organic warmth and natural comfort, go for the 100% Merino wool from Icebreaker, SmartWool, and others as a next to skin layer, mid layer, or outer layer. For high performance outdoor clothing able to handle sweat, try Patagonia capilene base layers and stay cool with an odor resistant fabric. From head to toe, select from the best lightweight crews, active capris, down to casual footwear like Chaco sandals.

After you’ve finished hitting the slopes, returned from lightweight backpacking, or come down off the mountain, relax in any one of Backcountry Gear’s wide array of comfortable and casual camisoles or t-shirts. Sturdy enough for an inner layer, yet comfortable enough for wearing alone around the fire pit for a meal.


Headquartered in Eugene, Oregon, Backcountry Gear has the best in women's outdoor apparel from global industry leaders Patagonia, IceBreaker, Arc'teryx, and Prana. We stock the best in lightweight tents, climbing gear, and hiking gear, too. When you plan for the outdoors, plan on, your first stop for outdoor adventure. Every step of the way.
