Description

Only available until Sale Close on Tuesday (19 December)

Designed and made specifically for the sale, this full-on expedition bag utilizes construction techniques and patterns from our Hispar Sleeping bag range and shares the same Drishell outer. It has a lightweight M1 inner, and uses our superb 900 fillpower down. A half length zip with double draft tube keeps the weight down (a full length zip is available as an option). A Mummy hood and down filled collar maximize the performance and Drishell panels have been added to the inner head and foot areas to cope with damp.

The PHD Advanced Base Camp bag has a typical operating temperature of -15°C, which makes it an ideal choice for Scottish winter conditions as well as Himalayan trekking routes such as Everest Base Camp.

The Advanced Base Camp bag will fit inside our Hispar Overbag to push it's Typical Operating Temperature down to -39°C.

This special Advanced Base Camp bag is available only for the duration of the sale at £442. The nearest equivalent on our 'Design Your Own Sleeping Bag' site would cost £590.

£148 off standard pricing.

Dispatch time: As with all PHD products, these are made to order and by hand. We estimate it will take us around 20 working days to make and dispatch sale orders. During busy periods it may take a little longer.

Technical

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.

Lightweight M1 fabric (weight: 39 gsm)

Lightweight silky microfibre. This close-weave 20 denier fabric is fully downproof, but also light and flexible enough to allow the down full loft. A reliable performer that has been the basis for much of our lightweight gear for some time. 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.

900 Fillpower Down

European goose down of very high quality. A truly excellent down with large clusters, consistent quality and lively long-term 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 systems. In cross section it looks like this:

Side V channels, and double draft tubes behind the zip optimise insulation.
More on sleeping bag construction.

Proofed Inner Panels

Proofed fabric (Drishell or Ultrashell) panels are included inside the hood and foot areas of the bag to help keep the down dry. In very cold temperatures your breath can cause ice to form around the face opening, which may soak into the down as it melts. The panels at the foot end are to protect the down if you get into your bag with wet socks (or in extreme situations with your boots on).
