About us

The Factory

The Rock Rabbit packs are 100% manufactured in Cape Town South Africa by a talented tailor named Joseph. Joseph has great attention to detail and takes great pride on completion of each of the packs. He works with Gary, our co-founder, on making his improvements and tweaks based on test runs. Various quality checks are done before the packs are sent off to the end customer.

Gary Britz (Co-founder)

I asked my wife to make me a customised trail pack years back and now we are here, with a product and a brand. Life is a journey!

I have always loved to run and was introduced to it by my father at an early age. We lived in Durban and Comrades was what everyone aspired to and I have many fond memories of running that race with my father and friends. I ended up accumulating 11 finishes. I have also done 14 Two Oceans and numerous other marathons, local and overseas, but about 15 years ago the “trail running bug bit.” Over the years I have managed to complete 4 PUFfers, 3 13 Peaks, Sox, 6 Peaks FKT George, African X, The Beast and Maxi. 

Most weekends, I take groups of trail runners into the mountains, whether its Table Mountain, around Franschhoek or near Paarl. We are spoilt for choice in the Cape and I hope I remain healthy enough to do it for years to come.

Sue Britz (Co-Founder Product Designer)

When Gary asked me to make a customised trail pack for him for one of his trail runs, I was excited about the challenge. I love product developing and having a creative mind and sewing ability this was not too difficult for me  He was happy with my first pack! Over the last 2 years we have tweaked the design and been encouraged by friends feedback to start a proudly made in SA range. I also have an existing textile business, namely Zana Products,  so we decided to put pool some resources and launch a brand! Husband and wife team. Here we go!
