The wait is over! The brand new range of Rab sleeping bags have hit the shops.
The design and manufacture of sleeping bags is where brand founder Rab Carrington started, and now at Rab they continue to innovate and improve on the knowledge he provided. Working closely with researchers at Leeds University they've had their 'eureka moment'.
After lots of hard work and by adopting a scientific approach they have uncovered the golden equation when it comes to perfect sleeping bag construction. Rab have designed and developed a groundbreaking range of bags by taking into account, chamber size, differential cut, lofting ability and reams of technical data.
