THE MOUNTAIN PEOPLE
Founded by legendary British climber Rab Carrington, Sheffield-based Rab Outdoor are renowned for their focus on producing mountain clothing with a focus on practicality and end user comfort for flawless alpine performance. A commitment to high quality fabrics, cutting edge materials and the most efficient high-loft down insulation makes Rab the first choice for many big-mountain expeditions, climbers and walkers.
The AMI Test Team
As part of their quest to make quality mountain clothing that allows users to push the realms of their own possibilities, Rab utilise Association of Mountaineering Instructors, along with their brand athletes, to test their prototypes and finished products in order to get valid, honest and quality feedback to improve their designs.
Rab Carrington started out making sleeping bags and clothing from his attic. 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.
