A polar and high altitude expedition sleeping bag designed for temperatures around -20°C and made from the very best goose down and finest technical fabrics available.

The Expedition series of sleeping bags have been created by Rab for the harshest conditions. Made with Pertex Microlight and Pertex Endurance fabrics, these sleeping bags will offer protection and warmth at some of the lowest temperatures likely to be encountered.

Rab Expedition bags are slightly oversized to accommodate expedition clothing when getting into the bags. The head and foot area of the bags are lined with water resistant Pertex Endurance to prevent water ingress into the bag from footwear and clothing. They are the warmest Rab sleeping bags and are designed for use in the Arctic and Antarctic and at high altitude.

EN Sleeping Bag Temperature Ratings

EN13537 is the European standard for sleeping bags and requires a thermal manikin test which produces four temperature results — upper limit, comfort, lower limit and extreme. There is no legal obligation to use this standard though most reputable brands do, even non-European ones. There is an exemption for military sleeping bags and sleeping bags for extreme temperatures, ie a comfort range of below -25°C. 
 
Upper Limit: the temperature at which a standard man can sleep without excessive perspiration. It is established with the hood and zips open and with arms outside the bag.
Comfort: the temperature at which a standard woman can expect to sleep comfortably in a relaxed position.
Lower Limit: the temperature at which a standard man can sleep for eight hours in a curled position without waking.
Extreme: the minimum temperature at which a standard woman can remain for six hours without risk of death from hypothermia (though frostbite is still possible).
 
For the purpose of these measurements, a "standard man" is assumed to be 25 years old, with a height of 1.73m (ie 5' 7", not very tall) and a weight of 73kg; a "standard woman" is assumed to be 25 years old, with a height of 1.60m (ie 5' 2.5") and a weight of 60kg.
