A great versatile all-rounder for camping, backpacking and mountain use over 3 seasons.
Rab's Ascent range of sleeping bags are duck down filled performance sleeping bags created for regular outdoors use whether you're on a camping trip or hiking in the mountains.
Designed in a semi-rectangular shape, great for those who don't like the restriction of a mummy shaped bag, the Aspect 700 will most likely be appreciated by those buying their first down bag.
Using a highly durable Pertex® Microlight inner and outer fabric, this excellent sleeping bag is filled with 700g European Duck Down.
The Ascent range offer great value for the feature set, which is similar to that of the more technical Rab® bags, such as internal YKK stash pockets, anti-snag webbing tape and a trapezoidal baffle design to eliminate cold spots.
Hand filled in Derbyshire.

The Rab Ascent 700 does most of what it says. Its lightweight, compress' down fairly small though could do with compression straps on the stuff sack. Was pretty warm on a night bivvy up in Tryfan north wales late October at around Zero degress with fairly constant hail and winds gusting at 40mph. I did suffer from a cold arm on the zipper side though probably because my bivvy bag was covered in hail most of the night and I was sliding up against the edge of the bag on the zipper side. Lesson 1 pick a really flat spot to bivvy! Well pleased with the bag - ready for more adventures!
