Water-resistant warmth for chilly winter expeditions.
In unsurprising news, winter's cold, especially at night. That's why Rab designed the Andes 800 Women's -8 Degree Down Sleeping Bag to keep you warm during all but the most frigid winter nights. With Pertex Endurance and Microlight fabrics sandwiching water-resistant 800-fill European goose down, the Andes can handle high-altitude camping and winter mountaineering without condensation turning it into a soggy, cold mess.
The longitudinal torso and foot baffles are designed with Flowgate technology to keep the down evenly distributed, while the drawcord hood incorporates neck and face baffles and a collar to seal your mug up tight against the chill. The 3/4-length YKK zipper comes with anti-snag tape to make zipping up and down hassle-free, and there's even an internal zippered stash pocket to help you stay organized. As a bonus, the whole shebang packs small and weighs just over three pounds, making it as easy to carry on serious winter excursions and long backpacking trips as it is on one-night alpine bivvies.

Hand Filled in Derbyshire
Sleeping bags are firmly where we started and they remain a core part of our range to this day. Back in the 1970's when Rab Carrington was making sleeping bags in Patagonia, he probably didn't imagine that 40 years later sleeping bags with his name on them would be used all over the world in some of the most beautiful yet hostile environments.
To this day, we hand-fill our down insulated sleeping bags at our factory in Derbyshire, UK. This allows us to know for definite that, by the time our bags reach our customers, they have never been compressed or stored in a way which could be harmful for the down inside. By filling the bags in house, we can be completely sure that every down sleeping bag that leaves our factory will arrive to our customers in the best possible condition.
