    Is that pack size on the 600 right ? 22 x 51cm seems big, not that I know much about them :)

    I wonder if the Thermic Ionic Lining is similar to what Berghaus have been using. Berghaus claim 10% extra warmth and Rab claim 30% so maybe not or maybe...

    Seen that, they have this Thermo Ionic Lining Technology which apparently is ti coated nylon fibres that make it 32% warmer than untreated bags by reflected the heat back at your body.

    Is the number down weight? If so hope the reflective coating works if your out in -8 with 360g of down.
    I thought reflective coatings only worked with an air gap?

    I think it is, it is a 900fp & I'd say a very snug fit by looking at them, plus I don't think Rab are generous with their fill no slight overfill to help fill & hold out the baffles imo.
    edit: comfort for that one is at -2 with sleep limit at -8

    Thermo Ionic Lining.. Is that to do with warm electronically charged particles or the use of Greek orders in the waterproofing at a spa?

    Awesome marketing.

    360g of good down in a quilt seems (in the us pre using EU standards) get a rating of ~20f/6c at about the same weight. Perhaps the fact it's a bag helps the rating? But I'm talking oranges and apples re ratings.

    Perhaps a better comparison would be an ak pd400, comfort limit seems to be -10, they recommend-6. Only 760 fp down though, so perhaps -8 isn't so far off?

    For that money... surely they are falling short of the big hitters of the down bag world? PhD? Yeti? To name just two..
