One way to reduce weight in a sleeping system is to use a top bag or quilt. The original Rab Top Bag that we reviewed in 2001 was a trend setter, reducing weight by letting a sleeping pad serve as insulation for the bottom of the bag. In 2005, the bag was upgraded to the Quantum Qtop, which featured a Pertex Quantum shell and lining, but we were perplexed by its excessively wide sleeping pad opening (wider than a standard twenty-inch-wide sleeping pad) and tight girth. For spring 2008, Rab is rolling out another upgrade called the Top Bag AR; does this one get it right?
