We tested out the Rab Ignition 2 Sleeping bag to see how it fared in terms of warmth and comfort, as well as pack size and value for money…
Best in test
I’ve got a bit of a thing for Rab gear. Over the years I’ve been testing kit I’ve yet to come across a product from the company that hasn’t performed well, and the Ignition 2 certainly lives up to these expectations.
The bag uses Rab’s synthetic insulation which is called Pyrotec. It compresses down to about the size of a loaf of bread, making it perfect for packing into a rucksack. Despite this small pack size, there’s a surprising amount of room inside the bag and I had no problems zipping it up. Again despite the small size it also has great thermal properties, and kept me comfortable while camping in about 6°C -8°C. The polyester lining is soft and comfortable against the skin, and additional features include a three-quarter-length, two-way zip; a zip-up pocket for stashing valuables in and draught baffles where you need them.
Rab Ignition 2 Verdict
If you need something a bit warmer check out other bags in the range: the Ignition 3 has a comfort rating of -3.5°C and the Ignition 4 has a comfort rating of -7°C. But if it suits the temperatures you need if for, the Ignition 2 is an excellent bag: it packs down small, and is lightweight and comfortable.
Pack size: 28x18cm
Comfort limit: 5°C
