For the most extreme conditions in the world

Rab have always used innovations in technology to create a range of high quality outdoor clothing and equipment. From the use of the latest materials to sourcing premium quality down and synthetic insulation, Rab take every part of a product and ensure that it is fine-tuned to perfection.

Rab® was the first outdoor gear manufacturer in the world to use Pertex® in the production of down sleeping bags and jackets, allowing them to create a product that took climbers and mountaineers into new and previously inaccessible parts of the world.

To this very day the relationship between product, materials and the userremains at the very heart of all their outdoor kit and equipment. Their MeCo base layers for example combine Merino wool with a synthetic material impregnated with 37.5® to produce a garment that truly benefits from the best of both.


It was major breakthroughs in technology that first enabled founder Rab Carrington to make his own climbing gear. Today Rab are at the forefront of innovation, with materials such as their MeCo base layers, Pertex Shield+® waterproofs and a wide range of Polartec® insulation.
