The Mountain People

Their 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 Rab's friends and the growing local climbing community.

But 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 camp fire. This began as Rab's story, but it also belongs to those who've loved and cared for each and every one of their products. Who've made them their companions on long trips and expeditions. Rab's journey continues and their invitation is always open, join them and share the experience. #WeAreRab

Years of experience go into the design, creation and realisation of all of our products. Behind this stands a deep respect and love for the mountains we play, explore and adventure in. Inspired by this, the updated Microlight Collection is devoted to everything we’re passionate about - performance, technology and the environment.

This season, we’re proud to be using GRS-certified P.U.R.E.® recycled down in our Microlight range.

Using recycled down is a sustainable alternative to virgin down and helps reduce our environmental impact. It means that we don’t need to use new raw materials and it also helps remove unnecessary waste from landfill.

We are the kindred spirits. We are the fellowship hewn from granite and grit. We are the restless, the persistent, the plain stubborn. We are the strivers for perfection, the vanquishers of ghosts. We are forgers of dreams, crafters of comfort. We are the smallest detail and the simplest innovation. We are the hand-stuffed sleeping bag, the sharpest needles. We are the stories in every seam, the memories in every piece. We are the weathered jacket, the borrowed kitbag, the huddle of a storm lashed tent. We are the warmth of companionship beneath icy skies. We are the clink of tin mugs in the shivering dawn. We are the smell of fresh rain at sunrise; of embers at sunset. We are the voices that spur you on. We are the stokers of the flame. We are the fibres that entwine us all. We are the bond stronger than any rope. We are the mountain people.

We are Rab.
