Rab Mythic 200 Sleeping Bag Review

By Luke Jarmey

PHD Minim 400 K Series Sleeping Bag review

An expensive but, at some point, useful outlay for ultra and marathon runners is a lightweight sleeping bag. It might be an essential kit list item for a multi-day race or something you plan to use on overnights during longer training runs. It needs to be light so that is can be easily carried in a rucksack, but it also needs to be warm so that you can sleep well.
