There’s a lot on going here at Rab that keeps us motivated to make the most of our time away from the computer screen or down filling station. Everything we do - from the products we design to our friends and colleagues we hang out with - relate to the mountains, routes and places we love. It makes it pretty special to be able to combine our work with our passion, and makes each day at the office unique.

Behind the Scenes offers an insight into life at Rab and what makes us tick.The design, manufacture and testing of our products through to events, photos shoots, gear reviews and people all play a part in creating and maintaining the distinctive character of Rab, and we believe these things are worth sharing.

AMI Review: Sawtooth Hoodie
