The Rab Vapour-rise Glove is a very lightweight breathable glove that will offer wind and water resistant protection for all your outdoor needs.
It has a Pertex Equilibrium shell with a hardy patch of Pittard's Armortan leather on the palm for reinforcement when scrambling and climbing. The wrist is part elasticated for easy on and off while a hook and loop cuff can be secured to ensure a snug draft free fit. A small loop on the back of the finger on each glove allows them to be attached to a climbing harness with a karabiner so they can always be kept handy.
Rab Carrington built his company on two things: A deep understanding of what climbers and mountaineers need, and a commitment to practical gear that works.
Throughout much of the 1970’s Rab could be found on ground breaking expeditions around the world. From winter climbing in Scotland and the alps, to expeditions in the Himalaya, Rab gained first-hand experience and understanding what climbers need from their kit.
In 1981 the native Scotsman moved to Sheffield to set up Rab. By first deciding how gear should be used, then designing for that use, Rab was able to produce specialist down sleeping bags and jackets with fresh dimension suitable for high performance mountaineering gear, offering products better than any other available at the time.
Jump ahead over 25 years and Rab are still at the forefront of innovation and performance. From their super lightweight bivi bags to tough, waterproof and breathable eVent™ jackets, Rab have created some of the most hardwearing and specialist kit in the world. Rab are still to this day designed and produced within the UK, using the highest quality, lightweight materials to create award winning products; and are ceaselessly committed to Rab’s exacting standards, ingenuity and pioneering spirit.
