Rab’s 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 both from friends and the growing local climbing community.
For more than 40 years Rab sleeping bags have set the standard within climbing and mountaineering communities. Carefully balancing our heritage with innovation, we’ve learnt from the past whilst constantly thinking about the future. Driven by a pursuit of excellence, quality sits at the heart of our manufacturing. Rab pride themselves on designing and hand-crafting world-class sleeping bags honed for the mountains.
