We were pretty impressed with the quality of design and manufacturing that Rab showcased in each of these ski touring specific products. With the creation of our "Off-season" gear review page this spring it was only natural for us to investigate Rab's summer line-up of technical clothes. This review will focus on a full top to bottom set-up for those still keen to get into the mountains in the off-season. Starting on the lower quarters we will look at the Rab Alpine Trek shorts that are made for hiking and alpine lake swims. Moving up top we put the Rab Meco 120 short and long sleeve Tees through the paces. These base layer shirts are a mix of Merino wool and Cocona fibres to keep you dry and cool in the heat of summer. Finally, we will finish off with the Rab Orbit Pull-on, which is a Polartech fleece with a unique weave to keep you warm on those alpine nights.
