Rab - Over 40 Years Making Kit That Lasts

The 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. Hand stitched and devised with his own ingenious eye, Rab's experience from years spent in the mountains was apparent in his designs, and soon there was popular demand from friends and the growing local climbing community.

Things didn't stop there. Word soon spread, and the Sheffield attic became a factory floor, creating sleeping bags and jackets for customers far and wide. Now, decades later, those honest, hard-wearing designs can be found all over the world, wherever adventurous individuals face up to the elements. From Himalayan peaks to cold, crisp evenings around a campfire.
