British outdoor brand Rab (owned by Equip Outdoor Technologies Ltd.) has received two high-profile product and brand awards related to their Skyline mountain running range. The latest Trail Running UK Awards recognise Rab as Sustainable Brand of the Year, and the Windveil Pull-On as Top of the Year. This is an endorsement for Rab’s ambitious sustainability strategy to become Net Zero by 2030 and recognition of their Climate Neutral Company status, whilst at the same time refusing to compromise on quality and performance of their kit that is designed to protect in the most adverse mountain conditions.
The TR Gear of the Year Awards conclude the successful launch of Rab’s fully updated SS22 Skyline mountain running range, featuring various award-winning products such as the Women’s Phantom Pull-On Jacket (Women’s Running Product Award 2022), and the Kinetic Ultra Jacket (Outside Magazine Best for Trail Running).
“The launch of our updated Skyline range this summer has been a great success across all markets and we feel honoured that this has also been recognised by some prestigious industry and media awards. We’re already excited to further push the boundaries of developing highly technical equipment and kit for all mountain-related activities whilst at the same time continuing our journey to reach Net Zero by 2030,” said Andy Schimeck, Equip Global Sales Director
For Autumn/Winter 22, Rab has further expanded the Skyline collection and introduced new pieces, featuring GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ WINDSTOPPER® technology from head to toe. Devoted to distance, where every gram counts, dedicated to runners in their element in any element.
