Ready Made: Minim Ultra Down Sleeping Bag

Minim Ultra Down Sleeping Bag

This is the smallest-packing, quality down sleeping bag I've seen. It fits into a jacket pocket. I've been as warm in this as I have been in bags twice the weight.

Description

The Minim Ultra Down Sleeping Bag has been the lightweight choice for mountain marathon runners and lightweight backpackers for many successful seasons.

This "Ready Made" version uses rare 950 European Goose down, superlight MX fabric outer and inner, and has a boxwall construction for maximum loft.

Available for dispatch within 3 working days.

Technical

Superlight MX fabric (weight: 32 gsm)

A mini-ripstop nylon with excellent tear strength, MX is the pick of the superfine 15 denier downproof materials. We have tested lighter fabrics, but most have had significant drawbacks, while our confidence in MX is based on several years of extensive use in both our ultralight and our high mountain gear.

950 Fillpower Down

A newcomer to our range. European goose of rare quality. A high value alternative at the top levels of performance. More on our down insulation.

Construction

This bag has an insulating straight wall baffle system throughout (no straight-through stitching). Straight wall is the lightest of all baffle sytems. In cross section it looks like this:

Reviews

"This is the smallest-packing, quality down sleeping bag I've seen. It fits into a jacket pocket. I've been as warm in this as I have been in bags twice the weight."
Trail Magazine.

"I would, without a doubt, use the PHD Minim Ultra again. Quite simply, I don't think there's a better bag on the market for warm weather stage racing."
Bryon Powell -- member of 1st American team to place in top 3 of the Marathon des Sables.

"The bag was great for Marathon des Sables and I was 8th overall and the best finish ever by an American (or English speaker from what I hear). Anyhow, I loved the bag and will recommend it."
Michael Wardian.

"Just to let you know that I finished the Marathon des Sables. As you know i bought your Minim Ultra down sleeping bag, which was for sure the lightest in the whole race !!! and also during the nights i never feel cold !!! IT IS THE BEST PRODUCT I COULD EVER BOUGHT !!!! One more time ! THANKS THANKS THANKS.... YOU ARE THE BEST !!!"
Miguel Vingardi.

"I'm now in the Pyrenees, hiking between the Pic d'Anie and the Breche de Roland. Your bag is keeping me wonderfully warm - such excellent quality at less than 500g is the envy of all my hiking companions!"
Deb R.

"A quick note to say how impressive my Minim Ultra was in the Sahara on this year's Marathon des Sables. Quite simply the best piece of kit I've ever bought. Temperature with wind got below 5 Celsius and the bag handled it so well that I slept in the buff every-night! Many, many thanks."
Ben Buckle.

"What a pleasure; perfect weight, texture, size, color. Really what I was looking for. Nothing more nothing less."
Dominique P.

"I have a Minim Ultra bag. With this very nice piece of gear my rucksack was only 7.5 kg during a Summer Mountain Leader Assessment 3-days expedition. My assessors (Plas Y Brenin) were very impressed."
Dmitri Nikolaev.

"Seriously, this is the lightest bag I have, it might even be the lightest down bag I've seen at 345g ... The down itself is very soft indeed, almost textureless ... This super fine down plus the light and flexible MX fabric used on both items make the pack size unfeasibly small. The stuff sack for the bag takes my hand and wrist and that's it."

"Just bought the Minim Ultra [bag], used it for standard camping on Jura at the weekend, and will be bivvying with it on Skye next week. Initial impressions are that I'm seriously impressed with the weight and pack size, and it feels remarkably warm, thick and snug considering the puny weight of 345g. Definitely one to consider if buying [an adventure] race bag, that's exactly the reason i got it!"
Dave Wilby on theOmm.com forum.

"I recently ordered a Minim Ultra sleeping bag from you. I received it on Saturday. It really is incredibly light and warm."
Jim Burton.

"Awesome."
Geoff Stone.

"Just wanted to say thank you for sending me my Minim Ultra sleeping bag so quickly. It saved me a huge amount of weight for this weekend's LAMM (nearly 300g over my current lightweight bag), and kept me toasty and warm for a great night's sleep. Result: we finished 21st in the D class - a massive improvement on last year's 75th place!"
