The Rab Andes 1000 offers the same warmth levels as in the Expedition 1000 bag, in a more performance orientated shape, maximising warmth-to-weight and reducing pack size.
High quality 800FP European Goose Down is secured by light-weight Pertex® Quantum fabrics, to ensure maximum loft for the down, without increasing the weight of the bag. The Neutrino 600 is styled in a ‘mummy taper’ shape, to dramatically reduce pack size, and features YKK zips throughout. Other key features include am internal collar and hood drawcord, anti-snag zipper webbing tape and a unique trapezoidal baffle chamber design, to eliminate cold spots.
Remember, temperature ratings are used to indicate a bags performance and help you decide between models. However, they are subjective and can be greatly affected by factors such as what you're happy to wear (clothing wise) in conjunction with the bag, your health and metabolism, how much you have had to eat or drink, humidity and altitude, the type of shelter used and whether you are using a suitable insulating mat.
As a guide, the "Comfort" rating indicates the range at which a woman gets a comfortable night’s sleep, the "Limit of Comfort" rating indicates the range at which a man gets a comfortable night’s sleep and the "Extreme" rating indicates a range at which a woman is protected from hypothermia. The Extreme rating is basically a survival rating and it is not advisable to rely on this for general use.
