Rab has always been inextricably linked to Scotland. It is our founder’s place of birth and while he built his company in the heart of industrial Sheffield, it is Scotland that has always inspired our work. Scottish Winter, more taxing and forbidding than the alpine playgrounds of Europe and a spartan training for greater objectives around the globe has always driven our passion for producing hard-wearing, long-lasting mountain clothing. It was this source of inspiration that we most wanted to share when we brought some of our US Team to Scotland in January 2017. The weather was a little more temperamental than we’d hoped, but they persevered, finding in the people, the landscapes and the climbing, the spark of magic that makes Scotland so special.
