Description

A light synthetic-filled overbag which serves many purposes. On long trips it will protect your down bag from getting damp from the outside, push the freeze-point of any internal moisture outside the down, and dry comparatively quickly itself. It also adds considerably to the warmth (about 10°C / 18°F) of your inner bag and offers the versatility of a combined system.

Used extensively in the Arctic Circle.

Technical

Thinsulate

Thinsulate is a synthetic wadding specifically made for outdoor clothing. Its great lateral stability needs less stitch-thru than other waddings, giving excellent warmth/weight performance. Extremely warm and resilient.

Water-resistant Drishell outer fabric (weight: 54 gsm)

Ripstop nylon with an ultralight coating: achieves total windblock, along with high breathability and superior water resistance. Superbly efficient for a very light overall fabric weight. Order samples of this fabric & just pay the postage.

Sleeping Bag Zips

  • No zip: The standard design on our lightest bags with open hoods. The simplest/lightest system which is a must for adventure racers. Up to 140gm (5oz) lighter than a full zip with draft tube.
  • Full zips: Full zip bags ventilate well, so they can be used over a wider range of temperatures.
  • Short Zips: Short zips are lighter and pack smaller than full zips. A short zip & draft tube is about 85gm (3oz) lighter than the full version.
  • Our full briefing on sleeping bag zips.
