Rab Ignition 4 Sleeping Bag:30 Degree Synthetic


Product Details

Summer backpacking and winter car camping in the desert call for Rab's lightweight and packable Ignition 4 Sleeping Bag. Its Pyrotec synthetic insulation provides a surprising amount of breathability for maintaining warmth on warm winter nights in the desert and brisk summer evenings in the mountains. Because its so breathable, Pyrotec makes the Ignition very packable for compact storage in backpacks. Rab designed the Ignition with a tapered mummy shape that gives more room up top compared to most mummies, and the angled footbox stays snug but still allows for some movement. The ripstop shell has a high strength-to-weight ratio, and the polyester lining is soft to the touch. This bag also features an internal draft collar and a drawcord at the hood for secure coverage.

Price : $ 159.95

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!
