Rab: Deeper than Down
Over the years, Rab have brought us some of the world’s most technical and innovative outdoor clothing. Known for their advanced down products, the brand have forged a reputation by providing lightweight, efficient performance thanks to their progressive technical fabrics and unique fill ratio. Rab are deeper than down however, and their range of hard shells, softshells and mid layers are now causing ripples of their own.
If you’re looking for a brand that is focused on quality and performance then look no further. Each piece of Rab clothing is tailored for a specific purpose, whether it’s hiking, climbing or mountaineering, so there is absolutely no compromise when it comes to fabric and features. Established in Sheffield in 1981 by lightweight alpinist Rab Carrington, the brand has kitted out countless expeditions, drawing on their experience to push the limits of technology and offer some of the best technical outdoor clothing available.
Polartec® Neoshell is one of the most innovative fabrics to grace the outdoor scene for a number of years. Combining the comfort of a softshell with the durable weather protection of a hardshell, this supple, flexible fabric gives you the performance you need without holding you back. The fabric’s ground breaking membrane provides incredible breathability, creating constant airflow that allows moisture to escape efficiently without reducing wind resistance.
Breathability is a key feature when it comes to eVent fabric. A standard waterproof membrane requires a build up of heat and pressure to push moisture through it and away from the body. The eVent membrane has a unique construction made up of millions of tiny pores that allow moisture to escape at twice the speed, creating a comfortable environment and reducing the post-exercise chill that is caused by cooling sweat.
