Rab Super Dru Jacket Receives AAI Guides Choice Award

Salt Lake City, Utah, July 21, 2009 – Rab, the leading British manufacturer of technical mountaineering garments, gear and accessories, has received the coveted Guide's Choice Award from the American Alpine Institute for the Rab Super Dru Jacket. The Super Dru is constructed of 3 layer eVent fabric and passed all the AAI testing with incredibly high accolades.

Dunham Gooding, the President of the American Alpine Institute, says this about the Rab Super Dru:

“The Super Dru has proved to be a dream jacket for our guides. It has all the features that we like, it is very light weight, and most importantly - it doesn't leak even after hundreds and hundreds of days of use in very difficult conditions. That's what waterproof, breathable jackets should do in theory, but we've used many brands and designs of jackets over the last three and a half decades of our international guiding, and none has held up like the Super Dru. The performance characteristics of the eVent material used in this garment are amazingly good, and the design and workmanship Rab has put into the construction is 'top of the line.' It's no surprise then that every guide at the Institute has put all their other shells aside in favor of the Super Dru."

The Super Dru Jacket and the rest of the Rab line can be seen at Outdoor Retailer Booth #5008 or online here. www.rab.uk.com.
