Design: Mummy
Fill: Down (500g)
Temperature Rating: 3 Season
Price Paid: £125

I've had this bag for about four years now and am totally happy with it.

Good hood, neck baffle and zip baffle.

I use it in conjunction with a silk liner to keep it clean, or for 4 season use, with a simple fibre pile inner.

I'm looking at buying a 4 season bag now - it will almost certainly be a Rab.

What more is there to say of a bag?
