Rab Clothing, Equipment and Sleeping Bags
Rab are a British brand that is focused on using functional designs and high quality fabrics to produce premium gear for mountaineering and polar travel. As a result, the Rab name has become a common sight in the most extreme places on Earth over more than three decades, with a real history in manufacturing down products.
Rab Carrington originally started making sleeping bags in Patagonia over 30 years ago, the reason being that Customs had held all his gear! As a result, Rab have unparalleled expertise when it comes to sleeping bags and down vests / jackets. Rather a good climber, Rab was born from this original passion for the mountains and it shines through in all their products. Traditionally based in Sheffield, (although the manufacturing process starts in China) Rab still stuff their down products here in Blighty. Talk to any mountaineer, and they still have images of little old granny’s stuffing sleeping bags with just a little extra down - something Rab do not deny!
For the discerning mountaineer, Rab products are unusual, well regarded and guaranteed to perform whether you are Hiking, Climbing or Cycling. From the use of eVent fabrics in their jackets to the high quality down they uniquely source themselves, Rab products stand as a testament to British mountaineering.
