There are few things better than a wild night out on the hill. Whether you're escaping for just one night or on an extended expedition, taking only what you need is a great way to reconnect with nature.

Rab are giving one of you lucky people the chance to win one of their new Neutrino 400 down sleeping bags, and a Ridge Raider bivvy! There also with 5 warm night bundles up for grabs.

Grand Prize

Neutrino 400 / Mens / Women's / XL

Rab Wildest Bivi Competition  © Rab
Intended for situations where warmth-to-weight is a primary concern, the Neutrino 400 is well suited to summer alpine trips and long multiday treks.

Perfect for summer alpine climbing, the Neutrino 400 is hand filled in Derbyshire and contains the highest quality 800FP ethically sourced European Goose Down. It is made using the lightweight, yet durable Pertex® Quantum - this allows the bag to have an impressively small pack size but quickly loft for instant warmth. The 'mummy taper' shape and angled footbox keep overall weight low without compromising on warmth or comfort and still allow for movement.

The Neutrino 400 has an ergonomically designed, close-fitting internal collar with a hood drawcord, as well as a 3/4 length YKK anti-snag zip with an insulating draft tube to keep out the cold. Other features include a handy internal stash pocket, dry bag compression stuff sack for transport and cotton sack for storage.

Seems a bit tricky for anybody who doesn't already own bivy gear but would like to do so to do well in this competition.
