    RAB Specialist Outdoor Clothing and Equipment

    The Rab brand is renowned for producing outstanding quality clothing and sleeping bags, suitable for extreme cold environments and high altitude mountaineering.

    When Rab Carrington started making sleeping bags in Patagonia over 30 years ago, he did so to pass time and earn a few bob while he was waiting for customs to release his climbing kit. A talented climber, Rab spent much of the 1970s on ground breaking expeditions around the world and in doing so gained the best education possible to understand what climbers needed from their kit. In 1968 in the Dolomites when everybody else was climbing in mountaineering boots, Rab used rock boots on routes such as the Phillip-Flamm and the Tre Cime.

    It is this approach to climbing that enabled Rab to design performance sleeping bags and down clothing. By first deciding what functions the gear needed to achieve and then designing for that purpose. He combined his knowledge of the mountains with the skills he had learnt in South America and set up shop at home in Sheffield, UK. Rab made kit for climbers, by climbers and in the mid-1980s he became the first manufacturer in the world to use Pertex in the production of sleeping bags and down jackets.

    His legacy continues with the brand Rab, a group of people dedicated to making products for the most extreme conditions in the world. Their passion for the outdoors and long standing partnerships with performance material suppliers and Rab’s pioneering ethos have allowed them to continue to push these limits. The original ethos of Rab remains core to current product development; a strong focus on using functional designs and high quality fabrics to produce premium gear for mountaineering and polar travel.

    Great deals and first class customer service; really nice people, too. Fun website - the few typos are easily forgiven as you can tell that they are passionate about outdoor gear, and the product descriptions are honest e.g. "Not the most technical item but one you will keep coming back to" sort of thing. Keep up the good work!
