Rab Kinetic Alpine 2.0 Pants (Short Leg)
The Kinetic Alpine 2.0 Pant is the perfect 'pull-on, leave-on' piece for the fast-paced summer alpinist.
In line with Rab's Ascent range, the Kinetic Alpine 2.0 Pants utilise Stretch Nylon Woven Proflex, a fabric that feels like a softshell, however has protection similar to that of a hardshell. Proflex fabric is Rab's waterproof membrane which offers outstanding comfort at high intensities and wild weather conditions. It is developed to offer a great deal of stretch and breathability and has natural elasticity. Not only this, but Proflex has exceptional moisture-wicking technologies, ensuring the garment has the ability to keep you dry and comfortable. Not only this, but the jacket has carefully zoned panels that have been designed to cope with increased abrasion and exposure of technical ascents without the inflation of weight. A slim, tailored cut with articulated knees provide you with better freedom of movement than your traditional waterproof pant. The flat semi-elasticated waistband is compatible with a harness and has an integrated belt adjustment for a secure fit. A pair of zipped hem gussets enable you to expand the cuff for fitting over large mountain boots or shoes. Not only this, but the pants have YKK Aquaguard pocket zips for keeping your essentials safe and secure, and a concealed rear zipped pocket for smaller items to remain on you. A YKK zippered fly, with double snap closure, means the pants stay in place, and make it easy for you to take the garment on and off.
Rab's story began in 1981 in the attic of a small, terraced house in Sheffield where Rab Carrington made the first sleeping bag to bear his name. Hand-stitched and devised with his own ingenious eye, Rab's experience from years spent in the mountains was apparent in his designs, and soon there was popular demand both from friends and the growing local climbing community.
Things didn't stop there. Word soon spread, and the Sheffield attic became a factory floor, creating sleeping bags and jackets for customers far and wide. Now, decades later, those honest, hard-wearing designs can be found all over the world; wherever adventurous individuals face up to the elements. From Himalayan peaks to cold, crisp evenings around a campfire.
Over the past decade, Rab has continued to move from strength-to-strength, with increased popularity both in the UK and beyond and the introduction of iconic pieces such as the Microlight Alpine and Kinetic Plus. From far away frozen summits to the hills of the Peak District, you will find Rab products all over the world.
