Rab Backpacking Sleeping Bags Andes 800 Sleeping Bag (800 Down) QSM29LZ. Ideal for use at altitude or on exposed belays when maximum warmth to weigh and small pack size are required.

- CampSaver.com refers to the men's version

Up high where the wind blows without mercy and winter rules all year, you can unfurl the Rab Andes 800 -8 Degree Down Sleeping Bag and rest up comfortably for your summit push. The Andes uses a combination of tough and water-resistant Pertex Endurance and Microlight fabrics to wrap the super-warm 800-fill hydrophobic European goose down, which in turn traps your body heat and helps you face down winter's icy fangs (and maybe even give them a quick flossing). Baffles and a collar around the face and neck seal you up tight against the cold, and the longitudinal torso and foot baffles use Flowgate technology to keep the down from sliding around and leaving you with cold spots. There's a zippered internal stash pocket for a midnight snack, and a taped zipper to prevent snagging when you adjust your bag in the middle of the night. Best of all, the whole package weighs in at just over three pounds, so you'll be able to take it along without worrying about overloading your pack and slowing down your companions.
