Founded in 1981 in Sheffiled UK, Rab Carrington’s eponymous technical outdoorswear and accessories line is designed to meet the needs of a new breed of lightweight alpinist using techniques pioneered by Rab himself. This equipment had to be designed ‘for the most extreme conditions in the world.’
I came across the Rab line digging through quality local independent outdoors retailers and really liked what i saw: great fits, inadvertently stlyish colorways, and a total commitment to high function. From what I saw in real life the gloves, waterproof pieces and shoftshells would all be perfect for my westcoast routines, and come in at a comparable pricepoint to upper-end North Face or Patagonia.
