Rab Neutrino 400 Sleeping Bag: 27 Degree Down


Product Details

Mountaineering is focused on going fast and light, so the Rab Neutrino 400 27 Degree Down Sleeping Bag makes perfect sense for spring peak-bagging. After putting away the miles all day, you'll be glad that you didn't weigh yourself down with a heavier bag--the Neutrino weighs just 1. 75lbs--but psyched that you have the weather-resistance and comfort of hydrophobic 800-fill European goose down and water-resistant Pertex Quantum fabric to crawl into. Rab made sure there was a neck baffle, collar, and drawcord hood to seal in the warmth, and designed trapezoidal baffles to keep the insulation in place. There's also anti-snag zipper tape for easy zipping, and a drybag compression sack to keep your bag dry if you get caught in a surprise rainstorm.

Price : $ 374.95

Lightweight Sleeping Bags Checklist

Sure It's Warm Enough? Lightweight bags are meant for use in weather between 30-50 degrees. But, remember, it's always prudent to add on at least 10 degrees to the bags rating. Thus, a bag rated to 40 degrees might only keep you warm in 50 degree weather.
Down or Synthetic? Each have their advantages. Down is less bulky and weighs a few ounces less. Synthetic costs less (usually) and is easier to dry - you can just toss it in the dryer.
Don't Forget the Sleeping Pad! A sleeping bag is useless without a sleeping pad. So, if you don't already have a sleeping pad, get one. For lightweight sleeping bags (thus used in warm weather), you don't need a super thick or winter-style one.
Ideal Uses for a Lightweight Bag. Where you know...for sure...that the temperature will stay at least 10-15 degrees above the sleeping bags rating. And, where every ounce and cubic inch of space is at a premium. Lightweight bags are often used by climbers and bike campers/travelers. For backpacking in the mountains, a lightweight bag is NOT recommended!
