Rab Enters the US Outdoor Market with New Lightweight Jackets, Bags
New lightweight eVENT and PrimaLoft jackets, and an upgrade to the classic Rab Top Bag.
By Will Rietveld

the Rab booth at OR, it was like finding gold. They had a few surprises
for us in the form of two new eVENT jackets, a lightweight PrimaLoft
jacket with Pertex Quantum shell, and an updated Quantum Top Bag.
