Rab Slippers

Rab Slippers - Quality and Performance

As pioneers in creating specialist outdoor gear built to endure challenging mountain environments, UK-based Rab dedicates immense precision and technical innovation to their acclaimed slippers to ensure they meet the highest standards for warmth, comfort, and durability. Unlike regular slippers designed for casual home use, Rab models are engineered with the same uncompromising quality as their performance-oriented sleeping bags and apparel. Premium water-resistant and quick-drying materials such as Pertex Endurance, Pertex Quantum, and ripstop nylons shield feet from the elements. European goose downs boast 750+ fill powers for matchless insulation alongside cutting-edge synthetic fills offering advanced staying-dry technologies and sustainability.  Precision box wall or trapezoid baffle constructions paired with pre-shaped lasting boards maximise insulation ratios for impressive warmth-to-weight even in UK winters. Some styles include cross-over foot gussets which add flexibility and structure while eliminating pressure points over the delicate metatarsals. This precision patterning retains maximum loft and prevents cold spots or compression so whether unwinding fireside or hunkering down in tents on frosty campouts, Rab slippers rise to the chilling conditions.


Home Comforts to Outdoor Exploits

In signature Rab style defined by advanced material technologies engineered for hostile mountain environments, their slippers enable full functionality across the broadest range of temperatures and activities. Models utilising thicker insulation fills and weatherproof shell fabrics thrive with outdoor living - aprés-ski around arctic base camps or hunkered inside frozen tents on winter expeditions, their robust build protects from the worst the elements blast. Yet the deep comfort factors - precision graded anatomical match, plush linings and active heat management - prove equally rewarding for home use after long hours on the hill trails. The casual loafer or pull-on designs effortlessly transition from fireside to foraging. Their relaxed styling blends outdoorsy charm with a subtly contemporary palette working as easily with jeans as with technical softshell trousers. Ultimately Rab slippers distil quality to amplify usage across both worlds - tactile warmth and fuss-free functionality for those who earmark comfort as the ultimate necessity whether chilling or charging the slopes. Those who adventure outdoors will appreciate Rab's signature approach - where innovative material technologies withstand the extremities yet translate equally well chilling at home.


Construction and Key Features

Renowned for comfort across their outdoor product ranges, Rab dials in an anatomical approach with their slippers constructed around heat-mapped foot shapes for ergonomic tread support from heel to toe. Strategically placed durable randing guards high-abrasion zones across toes, heels, and forefeet without adding excess bulk while some styles utilise multi-density moulded lasting boards which provide essential arch support for all-day cosiness. Integrated shanks transfer weight evenly through the full foot, a useful stability component during active pursuits while shock-absorbing EVA foam underfoot softens repeated impacts. Customary anti-snag two-way YKK zippers take the sting out of frosty mornings by getting feet in and out hassle-free. Lycra-bound cuffs or microfleece ankle seals conserve precious warmth. Many styles allow enough room for thicker hiking socks when heading outdoors. Ever conscious of sustainability, certain models utilise PFC-free DWR treatments while recycled polyester ripstop shell face fabrics and PrimaLoft Eco synthetic insulation reduce environmental impact without compromising on no-nonsense performance.


Rab Premium Insulations

What sets Rab’s acclaimed slippers apart lies in the premium warmth sealed inside. Two prime insulation types feature across the range - luxurious goose down and technical synthetic alternatives - both offering distinct user advantages.

  • Down → Down retains the most efficient warmth-to-weight ratio of any material, creating slippers with incredible packability for travel or outdoor use. European-sourced goose fills are RDS-certified responsibly sourced stock. High-quality hydrophobic down treatments add a water-resistant element while remaining breathable. Even with everyday compression, this natural fill springs back into a plumped loft after each wear. Being a sterile environment uninhabitable for bacteria build-up down doesn’t retain odours. However, Rab recommends regular washing to prevent any external grime accumulation.

  • Synthetic → Innovative synthetic fills present extended advantages. PrimaLoft Eco is manufactured entirely from post-consumer recycled plastic sourced from water bottles for instance. As well performing even when damp, synthetics dry quicker and can be simply machine washed. Some Rab fluff-less fibres feature active particle technologies achieving warming comparable to 600 downfill power yet lighter and with heightened breathability. Added technologies such as anti-microbial and odour control create fresh environments.

Exceptional Warmth With Rab Down Slippers

When only the insulating supremacy of down will suffice, Rab stands for technical slippers utilising premium fill for peerless warmth-to-weight. Their precise anatomical patterning retains maximum loft while ripstop shell fabrics protect the fine filaments inside. Models include classic mule moccasins, pull-on boots and lightweight packables.


Heavyweight Mule Slippers

The Rab Deep Cover Mule fills the brief for heavy-duty slippers delivering exceptional warmth for sedentary cold temperature use where weight and bulk play lesser priorities. Encased in plush 750+ fill power European down encased between Pertex Endurance exterior fabric and lined with heat-retaining ripstop backing, a thick insulating barrier shields feet from frosty conditions without compromising breathability. An internal webbing harness locks the foot securely in place for active wear while multi-density lasting boards - the technical term for pre-shaped foam footbeds - match foot contours for essential arch support during continuous all-day wear. The EVA foam midsole absorbs repeated shocks and provides cushioning underfoot making the heavyweight Deep Cover Mules ideally suited for relaxing in otherwise underwear after snow sport exertions or base camp lounge slippers when temperatures plummet.


Midweight Slipper Boots

As versatile cold weather slippers equally at home worn indoors after outdoor pursuits as companion boots across skiing trips or winter camping getaways, Rab's Microlight Slipper Boots balance formidable warmth with easier packability. Durable mini-rip Pertex encases lofted baffled tubes of hydrophobic European down calibrated precisely between a men's and ladies' specific lasts - grade-engineered anatomical profiles optimising silhouette, volume and contour. Fleece collars hold warmth effectively around the ankle while grippy rubber tread soles ensure security under snow-dusted traction. Weighing 500 grams per pair and packing to small sizes, Rab's midweight slipper boots bring dependable warmth and fuss-free wear to mountainside winter forays without excess space sacrifice in accompanying luggage.


Ultralight Backpacking Slippers

In their quest to build exceptional warmth with weight stripped to barely-there levels, the Rab Micro Down slippers set the benchmark for highly compressible comfort exemplified across their celebrated sleeping bags. Exclusive to Rab, precision anatomical profiling creates an ergonomic structure around male and female feet grading exacting specificity across individual areas prone to cold discomfort. Wrapped in durable mini 7 denier ripstop nylon and premium 750 fill power hydrophobic down únrelentingly tested across extreme environments, the uppers enclose thick baffled insulation ending above the ankle for flexible wear. Anti-snag zippers allow quick entry which proves useful after river crossings or cold tent exits. Weighing under 200 grams per pair, Rab Micros tuck neatly into hiking packs when glacier trekking or winter summit attempts benefit from sleeping bag cosiness post-long days conquering icy inclines.


 Ultimate Warmth for Indoor & Outdoor Pursuits

Across the spectrum spanning heavyweight slipper boots robustly countering frozen scenarios when the day's adventures end through mid and ultralightweight models factoring reliable warmth, and precision engineering with supreme lightweight compression for winter trips outdoors or travelling to snowscapes afar, Rab brings hallmarked excellence to creating slippers merging outright mountain performance with lifestyle comfort crossing both realms. Ultimately Rab's quilted blueprint echoed across their revered sleeping bags - stitch-perfect anatomical precision, quality hydrophobic insulation and discreet reinforcements from premium heat-shielding yet breathable fabrics - manifests in featherweight to fearless warmth so whether unwinding by the lodge hearth or bedding down in high altitude tents, total comfort and curb-free durability persists.


Care & Maintenance

To achieve longevity from their premium slippers, Rab advocates certain care rituals. Both down and synthetic fills benefit from regular washing to remove external dirt or grime alongside odour build-up. Care symbols inside each slipper detail optimal wash temperatures and drying guidance specific to the materials - some may be machine-washed at 40°C. In contrast, others perform better handwashing then drip-dried naturally. Check zip cleanliness routinely to ensure teeth mesh correctly - treat sticky zips with dedicated lubricants to avoid further deterioration. Periodic proofing maintains durable water repellency and condensation management; Nikwax TX Direct Wash-In solutions fortify hydrophobic down-losing of its bead. Avoid harsh spot cleaning like bleach which degrades shell fabric integrity - thoroughly rinse any detergent residues after washing too. Take care not to tear delicate face fabrics - address minor holes early and if necessary patch larger abrasions to safeguard insulation stability. Routinely air-stored slippers rather than compressing to maximise lofting. With many styles enduring years of arduous testing in extreme environments, Rab's designs engineered thoughtfully, translate into faithful long-term performance.


Rab's prestige as a pioneering master in advanced outdoor gear rests on an unwavering promise to obsess over the finer details - ethically sourced warming fills, precision anatomical grading for all-day use, resistant shell fabrics and ergonomic lasting. Applying signature construction techniques proven across their sleeping bag ranges combined with meticulous customised foot shape mapping, Rab delivers exceptional slippers blending outright performance with dependable longevity. Whether Alpine treks or sofa-binging boxsets, their precise warmth excels across activities and temperatures courtesy of the premium materials at their core. For discerning outdoors folk who relish fireside Sunday cosiness as much as cracking frost underfoot on winter trails, Rab slippers make faithful companions out in the field yet translate that resolute outdoor spirit back home when the adventure ends.
