Will Rietveld and Todd Walton inspect Rab’s newly revised line of sleeping bags
UK-based Rab showed their improved Neutrino series of sleeping bags at Outdoor Retailer. Featuring Pertex Quantum shell and liner fabric, 800+ fill power down, and half- to three-quarter-length #5 YKK zippers, the new line of bags is available in six gender-specific mummy styles as well as a top-bag.
The Neutrino mummy bag is available in the following variants:
|Name||Fill Weight||(Claimed) Total Weight||(Claimed) Temperature Rating||MSRP|
|Women’s Neutrino 400||400g||850g||28F||$310|
|Women’s Neutrino 600||600g||1050g||14F||$420|
In addition to these mummy-style Neutrino bags, Rab changed their Neutrino SL top bag. The Neutrino SL features 800+ fill power down on the top and hood, combined with 100 g Primaloft Sport insulation on the base of the lower legs – presumably to improve warmth in that area where the insulation is compressed by the user’s legs. The bottom of the torso area has no insulation and is designed instead to fasten to a sleeping pad with an integrated pad sleeve. The Neutrino SL features 200 g of fill, an overall claimed weight of 600 g, and a 32F temperature rating for an MSRP of $240.
