Most alpinists opt for full down bags because they provide light, lofty, and compact performance for easier approaches, but there's always the lingering fear that a little water will make down bags useless during chilly nights in the alpine. The other option is a full synthetic bag that retains warmth in moisture-riddled environments, and is generally more durable than down bags, but that adds usually comes with a higher weight penalty and more pack space. Rab's designers wanted to give you the best of both worlds; the Women's Morpheus 3 Sleeping Bag, which features a down-insulated top and a sturdy synthetic base. Rab also treated the down with Nikwax to help the lofty feathers retain warmth in wet environments. Also unique to the Morpheus is the dual zipper (a 1/4-length zipper on the left and a 3/4-length zipper on the right) to allow extra ventilation in case you get too warm. This bag's 12-degree temperature rating is great for summer backpacking in the alpine, backpacking in lower altitudes during the shoulder seasons, and trekking across the desert in the middle of winter.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
