Snowpack Jacket

rated 3 of 5 stars First off, I have not reviewed much since Trailspace has implemented their policy of not entering a review into the gear giveaway without posting to social media. I really don't want to pollute my friends and family's personal sites with a review that would not interest more than 25% of them. Severe dislike! That said, since this is my 1st Rab product and there was no other review on T-Space of this item I will post my 2 cents worth. I got this aimed at ski and snowboard use (after all it's called… Full review

Siltarp 2

rated 4 of 5 stars This tarp has been a great introduction into tarp camping for me. It is much lighter than a conventional tent, as well as being much roomier. There are some tradeoff's though. I have been doing more and more backpacking over the last few seasons. In doing so, I realized that a lot of my kit needed updating.

I had been looking into ultra… Full review

Neutrino 400

rated 5 of 5 stars Great bag. Stay warm and dry even when fog dampens the exterior. Used, without a tent in the Grand Canyon in winter and Angel Island in the fog.

It is well proportioned for a "not too slim" women's body. It kept me warm, and dry, even when soaked with moisture in heavy dew/fog. Love it. Full review

Scimitar Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars Light, well-designed, all-around softshell for doing anything in the mountains. Purchased this jacket about six months ago and have had the opportunity to take this jacket hiking, biking, ice/alpine/rock climbing, backcountry, alpine, and cross-country skiing, and traveling to Asia. The fit in Rab is usually spot on for my body type, and this piece very nearly got it perfect; only gripes are forearms that are too snug to use very substantial layers underneath. Granted I'm a climber and my forearm… Full review

Neutrino Endurance 600

rated 4 of 5 stars A finely crafted down sleeping bag with excellent loft, comfortable fit, and superior weather resistance. Using this bag in the backcountry will inspire confidence in cold wet conditions, and packing in at a reasonably lightweight compact form. The Rab Neutrino Endurance 600 Rab’s Specifications: Pertex Endurance Shell Fabric effectively sealed out rain and ice. Pertex Quantum inner fabric lighter weight intended for maximizing loft. I found loft to be excellent. Interior fabric on the hood is… Full review
