The Andes 800 Down Sleeping bag is part of the new range of down sleeping bags from Rab. Perfect for high altitude or winter mountaineering and expeditions in cold weather conditions. Pertex Endurance outer helps keep your sleeping bag dry and a microlight inner keeps you comfortable and the weight down. The Rab Andes 800 sleeping bag uses Pertex Microlight fabric which is very lightweight, strong and durable. It is used with the Rab sleeping bags as it is downproof, as soft as silk, and reduces the packing size by up to 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 repellent and durable. Pertex Endurance fabrics are also used in the Andes 800 sleeping bag and this is used in order to keep water, snow and wind out. It does this by allowing moisture to pass out freely from the inside keeping your sleeping bag dry from condensation. It is an ultra-light monolithic membrane applied to a durable nylon face fabric and this creates pathways along which moisture can diffuse into the atmosphere. An angled foot box in the Andes 800 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.

General comments: Truly excellent sleeping bag! First time I used this was a mid winter (near) summit camp on Ben Starav. The sun was down by 16.00 and by 17.00 the temperature was -12 celcius, which was also when the batteries on my thermometer packed up. Despite the cold, this sleeping bag coupled with a thin fleece liner kept me perfectly warm all through the night.
Pros: Very warm
Very well made
Packs light and fairly small
Cons: Substantial price tag.
