  • Rab® Films Premiere to Packed House

This Autumn/Winter season, we’ve taken the opportunity to produce a series of films in collaboration with Coldhouse Collective that explore the motivations and experiences of individuals who live for the mountains and truly use our clothing #ForTheMostExtremeConditions.

The Commitment Series follows a select group of Rab athletes, exploring the impact the passions they’ve pursued have had on their lives. On the surface, these stories may seem removed from the everyday, but we believe that the themes of commitment, dedication and personal drive have a universality to which all of us can relate. From those amongst us balancing family, work and passion, to people for whom profession and passion are one and the same.

Times have changed, but Rab's famous beard remains. Times have changed, but Rab's famous beard remains.

Here at Rab®, our Commitment is to our craft and to our gear, but before releasing the films more widely, we wanted to understand how the theme of Commitment related to others. Last week, we premiered a selection of the films at The Climbing Works in Rab’s birthplace, Sheffield. As well as sharing the films with a packed house, it was great to take the opportunity to discuss the theme of Commitment and how it relates to Rab’s climbing heritage with an audience of dedicated climbers and outdoor enthusiasts. People who are dedicated to their sports, their communities and a whole host of diverse, unique passions.

The first episode in the series profiles Libby Peter, one of only a handful of female UK Mountain Guides. Libby describes her life as one “slightly less ordinary”, but we’d put her devotion to profession, passion and family closer to the extraordinary. You can watch the video here.
