Rab take pride in producing quality hard-wearing clothing and equipment designed to last. At the same time, they recognise the big challenges facing the outdoor clothing industry and are constantly seeking ways to increase their positive impact and continue to minimise negative environmental impact.
The Rab story began in 1981 in the attic of a small, terraced house in Sheffield where Rab Carrington made the first sleeping bag to bear his name. Demand, from his close-knit climbing community, quickly outgrew what he could put together and he moved to a factory in Sheffield where his reputation for building fuss-free, hard-wearing kit escalated into the brand we know, love and can rely on today.
