Choosing a Rab Sleeping Bag

Rab sleeping bags are used across the world from the highest alpine peaks and polar expeditions to hills and dales of our native UK.

Because of the huge variety of different uses to which Rab bags are put, they produce a number of different sleeping bag ranges that, at first glance, can be a little overwhelming. To help you make sense of it all, below you will find a quick summary of each of the ranges.

 

EXPEDITION RANGE

The Expedition range of sleeping bags are the warmest in the Rab® range. Designed for use on expeditions to 8000m peaks and in polar environments, they have a very high fill power and a generous sizing to accommodate bulky clothing.

ANDES RANGE

Fill power: 850FP

Shape: Mummy

Available Fill Weights: 1000, 800

The Andes Range offers a similar level of warmth to the Expedition range but has a narrower, more performance oriented shape that makes them lighter and more packable.
