The Ascent 500 is a versatile mid-weight, down-filled sleeping bag that provides reliable protection in mild to moderate conditions. Designed specifically for regular camping, backpacking and general mountain use, this is ideal for those buying their first down sleeping bag and perfect for hill walking and wild camping.

The Ascent 500 is a hard-wearing high performing sleeping bag you can depend on for comfort and protection in mild to moderate conditions. Ideal for general purpose outdoor use, from bothy to bivvy, the Ascent range equips you for regular mountain adventures. Durable, tough, and reliably warm, the Ascent is especially suitable for those wanting to invest in their first down sleeping bag. Offering excellent value for the feature set, which is similar to that of the more technical Rab bags, this hard working piece provides protection and comfort on the hill or trail.

Using a highly durable Pertex® Quantum outer fabric, the Ascent 500 sleeping bag is filled with 500g of 650 fill power ethically sourced European Duck Down. The generous wide mummy fit and wide foot box provide extended comfort and a spacious feel that is still secure and warm. The close fitting neck baffle design, internal collar and hood drawcord provide additional protection to keep you cosy when temperatures drop. Featuring a three-quarter length YKK main zip with glow in the dark puller, a plush bonded zip guard also excludes draughts.

Practicalities are taken care of with an internal zipped stash pocket stuff pocket that easily fits phone and other essentials. The Ascent 500 comes with cotton storage sack and stuff sack to ensure a manageable packsize and protection on the road. As with all Rab down insulated bags, it is hand filled in Derbyshire, using Hydrophobic Down developed in conjunction with Nikwax®.

Appropriately long for a 195cm man, the width should have been a little more for a shoulder man. A 178cm shoulder-length lady can easily also roll around in the bag, the inner fabric is suitably slippery. Even though it's a big bag, it fits into a small space, so it's good to take it with you. Test outdoors only in spring when the snow melts, so heat retention is still a mystery.

Very comfortable bag, warm enough even for winter camping, not for extreme conditions though. Superb building quality.

A good bag for the price-quality ratio. The down pushes through the seams and the fabric somewhat.
