Rab Ascent 500 Down Sleeping Bag Information
-5 COMFORT LIMIT:
The Rab Ascent 500 Sleeping bag is ideal for trekking, mountaineering, backpacking, general outdoor use. A perfect all round sleeping bag.
The Rab Ascent 500 sleeping bag uses Pertex Microlight fabric which is very lightweight, stong and durable. It is used with the Rab sleeping bags as it is downproof, as soft as silk, and reduces the packing size by upto 25%. As Pertex Microlight is so light it enables the down in your sleeping bag to loft more easily which means you get warmer faster without adding any extra weight. Pertex Microlight is both downproof, wind proof, water repellant and durable.
An angled foot box in the Ascent 500 allows for extra foot space so not restricting movement and enabling you to keep your toes warm through movement in cold conditions.
A combination of the finest down and incredible technologies come together to create a sleeping bag which is second to none for warmth, comfort, and functionality.

Pertex Microlightoffers some of the softest and lightest fabric in the Pertex range – essential when grams and ounces count.
650 Fill PowerThe top end of the market, offering exceptional warmth to weight ratios. 650 fill power is rare and expensive but gives expedition level performance or options for ultralight construction. The high loft down compresses well, keeping pack size down whilst standing up to the most extreme conditions
YKK Zippersare used for their robust and water resistant properties. YKK uses the combination of locking teeth together and a PU coated strip to create a barrier between you and the elements.
Angled Foot Box- Sleeping bags with an angled foot box have been made to fit your feet so that you can lie in a natural position making it more comfortable and also to reduce compression of the down and reduce heat loss.
DWR- Durable Water Repellent, is a coating added to fabrics to help add to their water repellency and shed water and snow more effectively.
Rip Stop -This is a lightweight nylon fabric with interwoven ripstop reinforcement threads in a crosshatch pattern. It is woven with a coarse, strong warp and filling yarns at intervals so that tears will not spread. Ripstop is used in construction of hot air balloons and yacht sails but in this case very effectively on outdoor clothing.
