Rab have been making the highest quality waterproofs, down jackets and sleeping bags for the last 30 years. The founder, Rab Carrington, spent much of the 70's taking part in groundbreaking expeditions and during that time discovered what mountaineers really need in outdoor gear.

Rab are best known for:
  • Rab Waterproof Jackets - the staple of Rab's waterproof range, is the Latok which is a critically acclaimed jacket suitable for use in the UK during all 4 seasons. The Latok Alpine is a lighter version (slightly shorter in the body) designed for summer ascents in the Alps but it is also great for three to four season use in the UK. If you really want to strip the weight down, the Drillium is a highly breathable jacket which is popular with summer walkers, adventure racers and runners.
  • Rab Fleece Jackets - Rab don't have a huge range of technical windstoppers or soft shells but they do have quite a few cosy fleeces such as the Double Pile and the lighter Micro Grid. For warm and dry conditions, Rab produce a range of breathable jackets which combine a pertex outer with micro-fleece inner (such as the Vapour Rise (VR)). This design provides good insulation and also a degree of water-resistance.
  • Rab Down Jackets - Rab and down jackets are synonymous in the mountaineering world. Rab jackets like the Summit Batura have been used on sub-zero expeditions for decades. The majority of climbers who venture to the Andes or the mountains of Nepal will be clad in either Rab or Mountain Equipment. For walkers/climbers in the UK or the Alps, Rab also make down jackets designed to perform in slightly less severe temperatures (such as the Summit). For those who prefer the style and ventilation provided by a gilet, the Neutrino Vest is a good choice. Rab are also challenging Buffalo by producing insulated jackets such as the Generator which utilise pertex outers to provide protection from the wind and light showers.
  • Rab Waterproof Trousers - Rab's most popular waterproof pant is the Latok Alpine which is designed to be worn with the jacket of the same name. The cosy VR Trail Pants also have a good reputation, however, they are more of an insulated water-resistant walking trouser than a waterproof pant.
  • Rab Bivi Bags - Rab shook up the bivi bag market a few years ago with the simplicity of the Survival Zone which is essentially just a big pertex bag with no bells or whistles. They are now attempting to challenge Terra Nova by producing more substantial bivi bags (with hoops etc.) such as the Ridge Raider
