RAB – THE PLACE OF THE GAELS

La Scozia è sempre stata al centro del lavoro di Rab; le difficili condizioni climatiche di questo paese hanno influenzato e ispirato i suoi prodotti fin dalla fondazione del marchio, nei primi anni ’70. Ora che la famiglia Rab si è estesa ben oltre il Peak District, il brand ha deciso di condividere e far conoscere oltre oceano la natura di queste terre.

Nel gennaio 2017 Rab ha invitato in Scozia gli atleti e lo staff del team americano. Questo film, prodotto da Coldhouse Collective, racconta il loro viaggio attraverso il paese, facendogli scoprire la variabilità del meteo, l’accoglienza della sua gente ed un’arrampicata altrettanto esigente.

The Place of the Gaels, an exploration of Scotland’s landscape, culture and people. From the climbers and skiers who live for Scottish winter to the musicians and craftspeople who make their living in the highlands.


Scotland has always been at the heart of Rab’s work, with many of our products inspired by the demanding conditions of Scottish winter climbing. With the Rab family now extending far beyond these shores, we decided we wanted to share more of the country that, from our very founding, has informed our work.

In January 2017 we invited athletes and staff from our US Team to come and experience Scotland with us. This film, produced by Coldhouse Collective, catalogues their journey through the country as they discover that the weather is just as fickle, the people just as welcoming and the climbing just as demanding as they’d always heard.
