Rab Men's Kinder Smock Jacket
Its Back! Anyone climbing back in the day will remember this with fond memories and will want to relive those hard routes of their youth, cold belays, trugging in the snow to the local bouldering spot or sat in their tent in a stormy North Wales campsite waiting for the clag to go.
We are SUPER excited that the Kinder is back...hell, we might dig out those Asolo Runout 92's, the crazy lycra and the Troll harnesses and go and do something at Stanage!
Paying homage to the much loved original, our classic Kinder Smock is back.
First manufactured over 30 years ago, the Kinder Smock quickly became a favourite on the Sheffield climbing scene. Easily picked out against the dark gritstone, it's iconic shape meant it could be worn without interfering with a harness or belay device.
An unbroken link from past to present, the Kinder is as rugged and hard-wearing as before, still made from the classic Pertex fabric. Not ashamed to be neither fast nor light, there is nothing like the warm, reassuring feeling of throwing on your Kinder at a cold belay. Sometimes the old way is the best way.
