Equip Outdoor Technologies UK Ltd owns and operates two specialist outdoor brands, Rab and Lowe Alpine.



Rab Carrington, one of Britain’s foremost mountaineers, established the Rab brand in 1981 to design and manufacture the world’s finest down clothing and sleeping bags. From these early days, Rab created a reputation for producing garments that are truly for the most extreme conditions in the world and for searching out the finest technical fabrics to use in their designs. Rab clothing stands among the most technical and innovative on the market, designed to meet the exacting demands of the Scottish mountains that remain the inspiration and testing ground for many of the products. The Rab brand continues to be run by climbers for climbers and all products are tested in extreme environments by our team of mountain athletes.

  Lowe Alpine


Lowe Alpine was born in 1967 in the Colorado work shed of climber Greg Lowe. Now an international company, Lowe Alpine retains Greg's vision and enthusiasm. The work force includes rock climbers, alpinists, mountain bikers, skiers, trail mountain-marathon and fell-runners, cyclists and kayakers. Quality of design and functional excellence mean that all Lowe Alpine products are designed so that the activity can be enjoyed by a person without thinking or worrying about what's being carried.
