Louisville, CO, June 2020 – Rab, an industry leader in merging the development of quality outdoor gear and apparel with sustainability and environmental awareness, added another accolade today as Elevation Outdoors honored the company’s Mythic Ultra 180 sleeping bag with a Peak Gear Award for 2020.
Released by Rab ahead of the summer season, the Mythic Ultra 180 is one of the world’s most advanced lightweight sleeping bags. Constructed with an exceptionally light ripstop 7D outer and filled with high-loft 900+ fill power European goose down, the Mythic Ultra 180 also incorporates world-first Thermo Ionic Lining Technology (TILT), which adds a titanium coating to the fibers to reflect heat back towards your body, enabling it to significantly boost warmth without increasing weight, compromising breathability or sacrificing any features.
Gear testers from Elevation Outdoors took the Mythic Ultra 180 on trips to alpine huts in Colorado, France, and Italy, and praised the bag for being an exceptional lightweight option for climbers or outdoor enthusiasts who don’t want to sacrifice getting a good night’s sleep while out in the elements.
“This is the lighter, smaller sleeping bag we have been seeking for a decade,” the review reads. “We are overjoyed to be headed into bivy season with a sleeping bag that won’t drag us down.”
About Rab: It was here in Northern England in 1981 that celebrated climbing innovator, and adventurer Rab Carrington set up the equipment company that bears his name today. His goal was simple: to make an honest, rugged climbing kit that could perform at the highest level. Every Rab® piece was created by hand and rigorously tested by the man himself or friends and fellow climbers encountering the most extreme conditions. We make rugged, high-performance mountain clothing and equipment that give you absolute protection, comfort, and freedom on the hill, crag, or peak. We use cutting edge materials as well as time-tested ones such as premium quality European down. Nothing fancy or over-engineered – just honest, hard-working pieces that you’d rather repair than replace. By climbers for climbers.
