By Rab

Color: Black

A welcome sanctuary from lashing rain, hail or a flurry of snow, the Valiance Parka is warm and waterproof, designed for everyday use and wild winter days.

Built with durable, waterproof Pertex® Shield outer and taped seams the Valiance offers reliable protection beneath the darkest skies. The narrow bonded boxwall construction stabilises the down and allows it to fully loft, trapping the maximum amount of air for optimum warmth. For added durability, lower bulk, and better moisture management, the cuffs and hood are insulated with fast drying, synthetic Stratus™ insulation. When the cuffs are cinched in with the hook and loop tabs, the synthetic insulation keeps performing. With its long length and regular fit for throwing on over other layers, the Valiance gives a reassuring, protective feel for striding out on wild winter days.

How To Care

Down products are delicate and need special care to maintain maximum effectiveness. Using ONLY a front-loading machine, wash in warm water with Nikwax's Down Wash.Direct® (without bleach) on a gentle cycle and low spin. You may wish to repeat the rinse cycle to be sure all soap residue is removed. An extra spin cycle will help remove excess water. Do not lift the product from the washer; scoop it from the bottom.

Before cleaning, turn your product inside out and close all Velcro® fastenings and zips to prevent accidental damage.

Tumble dry your down product over a long period on a low setting (Around 1-2 hours). It is also important that you wash and dry items individually. We recommend adding 3 tennis or tumble dryer balls to the dryer to make sure the down does not clump.

If you don’t have a tumble dryer, you can dry your down product over a radiator or flat down. Move it around every now and then to retain the down’s loft.

Behind The Design

Find out about the fabrics and features that make this gear unique.

Pertex® Shield

A waterproof and windproof fabric that’s breathable, lightweight and packable. Available in a 2, 2.5 and 3-layer construction, depending on the intensity of the pursuit and the ruggedness required.


Offering you superior performance in freezing temperatures and damp conditions, Stratus™ is a warm, resilient and fast drying synthetic insulation. Lightweight and effective, it's perfect for your next mountain ascent.


Fill Power - 700

Fill power is all about down quality, not quantity. Find out more about what fill power means for you when you're out in the mountains in cold conditions.


What is hydrophobic down?

Rab finish all their down with a hydrophobic treatment that enables it to retain its loft in damp conditions, so that your gear dries fast and stays warm. Find out how it works.

*With the exception of their 1000FP down.

Recycled Down

Using 100% recycled, high quality down, gives a second chance to down that might otherwise have ended up in landfill. Reducing waste and making the most of this valuable insulation.

The Responsible Down Standard independently certifies down against animal welfare requirements and tracks it from the source to the final product.
