the nimbus is pretty awesome. when wearing it literally feels like nothing on. it is that light. first you think it is too damn light to be warm, but at 8 degrees celsius it is actually warm enough to be too warm. I started sweating and think I will wait until around 0 degree to pull it off. amazing peace of clothes that can be compressed to fit in it's own pocket.

Down clothing is great but in wet conditions its slightly high maintenance.
For cold and wet conditions this jacket is a better option.
Its not as light as down - the medium weights 436g - not heavy but heavier than an equivalent down jacket.
It would be way too warm for wearing while exercising hard but great when on the flat or going down hill.
Sizing caught me out - I'm a small in most Rab clothing ( tops, jackets ) but the small Rab Nimbus was a bit tight fitting on me! Wearable but only with just a t-shirt under.
The medium was a lot more comfortable with layers under.
I would recommend going up one size if you want to fit anything underneath.
Length of arms and body is perfect for me - slightly on the long side which is just want you want to keep cold air out.
Feel of the material is nice too - it does look a little like a down jacket - not as warm but pretty good nevertheless.
