Light for backpacking, protective for camping.
Adventure in the alpine this summer with the lightweight, protective Rab Women's Ascent 500 Sleeping Bag keeping you comfy each night. Lofty 650-fill down insulation provides warmth for summer evenings, and Nikwax equips the down with hydrophobic properties to ensure warmth when wet weather and moisture roll in. Rab wrapped windproof, puncture-proof Pertex Microlight fabric around this innovative insulation for strength without the weight.
The Ascent's women-specific design gives more customized feel than most mummies for extra comfort when you're camping out of the car. An internal collar works with the adjustable hood to protect you from the alpine's harsh winds. There's a full-length zipper on either the left or right side, and Rab included a compression stuff sack as well as a cotton storage sack for long-lasting use.

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.
