Rab Summit 400 Sleeping Bag: 39 Degree Down


Product Details

Rab's Summit 400 Sleeping Bag is ultralight for summer trekking through the alpine, and it's protective just in case the clouds roll in. Its 650-fill down insulation has a hydrophobic treatment to stay warm in moist conditions. Rab wrapped this innovative insulation with an ultra-thin Pertex Endurance fabric for air permeability, breathability, windproofing, and high levels of water resistance. The Summit 400 also features a snug, weight-saving mummy shape, and the angled footbox prevents your feet from feeling too snug. There's also an anatomically-designed 3D draft collar so you don't feel any cold breeze through the full-length zipper. Rab added an internal stash pocket for your headlamp, and it included both storage and compression sacks for added convenience.

Price : $ 299.95

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!
