You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!

Pre-Launch

With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

    Keswick's local Everest expeditioner Tim Mosedale did an excellent review of Down Suits once. Of the Rab one he wrote, "Verdict - This was the best in the test ... It is not without its drawbacks but it has superb ventilation and loads of external pockets which means that you can be self sufficient for snacks, water and spares whilst remaining comfortable on the go, even in changeable conditions. If it is given a baffle and better internal pockets it will be almost unbeatable. Especially at the price which weighs heavily in its favour." This was written about the previous version and it is believed his concerns have been addressed with the new design.
