Rab Andes 800 Sleeping Bag

800 Fill Power hydrophobic down puts the Rab Andes 800 firmly in the top end of 4 season sleeping bags. Designed for use at altitude and alpine bivvies the Andes 800 should take anything the UKs weather can throw at it in its stride. Famously photograp[hed floating across a lake, with person inside, the bag is highly water resistant and traps enormous amounts of air to give the user the reassurance of a good night's sleep.

 

 

What the manufacturers say:

The Andes series are a range of down sleeping bags filled with 800 fill power European goose down.

The Andes series bags offer comparable levels of warmth to the Expedition bags but in a more performance orientated shape. The mummy shape saves weight and adds warmth due to the lower internal volume of the bag that needs to be heated.

The Andes bags feature a water resistant outer fabric that offers extra protection and piece of mind on cold, damp belays. Ideal for use at altitude or on exposed belays when maximum warmth to weigh and small pack size are required.

Price: £560
