Just when you thought a sleeping bag couldn’t get any lighter …. The Delta-Race 100 is the lightest bag PHD have ever made. Created for self-support ultra-runners, elite mountain marathon racers, lightweight backpackers – anybody who demands every ounce of performance from the kit they carry. This whisper-light bag packs into a pocket-sized stuff sac, taking up a minuscule amount of space in your rucksack.

Using 18g/m2 Vertex fabric and 950 fillpower goose down (our rare, exceptionally high-grade insulation) allows us to create a superbly lightweight bag, and the specialist dual-construction design and neck length dimensions make this the most extreme example of its kind.

The top of the bag uses box-wall construction to allow optimum down lofting, and stitch-through construction on the base sheds excess bulk, working with your ground insulation mat to deliver the incredible weight saving performance. 

As with all PHD sleeping bags, the Delta-Race 100 is made to order, so we can offer plenty of options. To begin with, a combination of 4 different lengths and 4 different widths allows you to get the perfect fit. A perfect fit is important because poor sizing compromises insulation, and you don’t want to carry excess material, do you?

Half- and full-length zip options allow greater flexibility in varying temperatures, while the foot-zip option is the ultra-light way to cool warm feet. Of course, to maintain minimum weight and pack size we’ve selected super-light zips.

For the midsummer months we're launching our Vertex Collectionthe lightest Down Vest, Jacket, Shorts, and Sleeping Bags in their class. Only available May and June at never to be repeated prices.

Ultralight Vertex fabric (weight: 18 gsm)

Breathtakingly light at 18 gsm, Vertex is the ultimate in technical fabrics for extreme weight saving. This fabric is down-proof and superbly wind-proof and represents a high-point in the development of lightweight technical fabrics. The result of years of evolution and testing, this whisper-light fabric opens up new possibilities at the pinnacle of lightweight gear design

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 up to 85gm (3oz) lighter than the full version.

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.


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

On the bottom stitch-through seams are used to minimise weight. More on sleeping bag construction.
