Rab has been working with down insulation from its foundation. The iconic Microlight collection is lightweight and packable down-filled jackets for men and women. These jackets are popular for a range of uses from climbing mountains to everyday activities.
Rab was founded, 1981, in Sheffield on the edge of Britain's most popular national park, The Peak District.
Rab was established by Rab Carrington, a highly experienced mountaineer and climber who had gone to South America to climb in Patagonia only to finish up sewing sleeping bags for a friend. Rab Carrington has remained a significant figure in the climbing fraternity throughout. In latter years becoming the President of the British Mountaineering Council (BMC)
Rab is still based close to the Peak District, giving their designers plenty of opportunities to test the kit out on Stanage Edge and other iconic climbing and hiking routes.
Rab maintains a factory in Derbyshire, UK, where staff with decades of experience are still employed to fill the sleeping bags that were some of the first products to establish the Rab label. Other garments are made abroad.
Rab produces sleeping bags, both down and synthetic, and a wide range of clothing including down jackets, waterproofs, base and mid layer pieces. They even make tents for really extreme mountain and polar conditions.
Rab's partnership with materials like GORE-TEX, Pertex and Polartec allowed for the development of warmer, lighter, more breathable garments, with good stretch and flexibility. Such garments are ideal for climbers who need a full range of movement and mustn't become cold if they are to perform effectively.
