Rab Carrington built his company on two things: A deep understanding of what climbers and mountaineers needs, and a commitment to practical gear that works. It's this down to earth, honest approach that still informs the design and testing process, linking us firmly to that modest beginning in 1980's Sheffield.

Scotland's Bike Shop | Since 1989
Scotland's Ski Shop | Since 1977
The 1970's saw keen explorer Rab Carrington struggling for money during a UK dock strike which led him to find work with a friend; the skills Rab picked up through this job led him to make his own equipment instead of relying on imports and in the 1980's he was regularly developing his own sleeping bags and clothing.
It was also in the 80's when production was moved into a factory in Sheffield and instead of hand-producing all of the goods, Rab was now an established brand on an industrial scale.
Through the following decades, the technology and designs behind Rab clothing have just got better and better, with Rab jackets now being a best-seller in the adventuring community.
Whether you're after a Rab fleece for casual wear or a Rab waterproof jacket for the more extreme of adventures, you can find it all here at Tiso!
