The story of RAB began in the 1970s, where Scotsman Rab Carrington sewed his first handmade sleeping bag. Years of experience in the mountains meant that Rab knew exactly what he needed. Today, RAB's durable products can be found all over the world; wherever adventurous individuals brave the elements. From peaks in the Himalayas to cold, crisp evenings around a campfire.

While RAB tries to ensure that only products destined for California have the Prop 65 Warning, it would be extremely difficult and costly to determine which products will be ultimately sold or brought into California.

On occasion, due to the complexity of the supply chain, these products may end up in other countries, where the label can be misleading.
