- PSA — RAB Factory Shop Sale, Form an orderly queue !
At a particularly middle class bonfire party I was at on Saturday, 3 folk out of about 20 turned up in their new rab down jackets. Only one of them only very occasionally ‘gets out there in the great outdoors’. Rab unfortunately is the new North Face, a fashion brand.Posted 5 years agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
Any everyone knows a down jacket isn’t used properly unless it’s got at least one bit of gaffer tape holding it together. 🙂
At a climbing club bonfire do last weekend, I’d say most of the down jackets were old, battered Rab ones – a dog wouldn’t sleep on most of ’em. 😀Posted 5 years ago
Alpkit seem to be the current choice – just as well made, much cheaper.somafunkSubscriber

Ha..ha, never a truer word said, my Rab Gillet with it’s lightweight pertex quantum shell is a cracking bit of kit but it’s had a hard life crashing through bracken, briars, holly bushes etc and it’s currently got 6 bits of 1″ Gorilla tape plastered over the outside holding the down in, my old Rohan down Gillet currently has a 9″ section of down tape along the rear shoulder after i ripped it crawling under a barbed wire fence and lost most of the down, i filled it back up with the contents of a spare down pillow – doesn’t look too great but it’s still toasty warm.Posted 5 years ago
