Our inspiration for designing the highest quality clothing and equipment for the mountains comes directly from the wild places we visit. From small local projects to fully funded expeditions to the Greater Ranges, our community of climbers are constantly putting the gear through it paces as we witness our product story unfold alongside that of the adventures and their outcomes. For Rab, these articles aren’t just entertainment - they're an incredible source of research and reference for pushing our products further and higher.
