One of the most technical sleeping bags on the market. Perfect for multi day routes.

 

Overview

Designed to meet the exacting standards of an alpine guide, the Alpinist sleeping bag is one of the most technical mountain sleeping bags on the market today.

Designed for multi day routes where -12C conditions are expected - either in a tent or if travelling fast and light on a bivouac.

Evolving from years of experience creating the most technical MONTANE® clothing, the Alpinist shares the technical features of the Deep Heat sleeping bag in a lighter and faster package. An underside shell fabric of PERTEX® Endurance provides weather resistant protection to the goose down inside whilst a lightweight, windproof and extremely breathable PERTEX® Microlight topside shell ensures weight saving and maximum packability.

Weight: 1.168 kg

Fabrication

  • Upper bag features PERTEX® Microlight that is lightweight, windproof, breathable and features a durable water repellency

  • Underside PERTEX®Endurance Mini Rip-stop outer provides exceptional weather resistance with a high durable water repellency and can shed ice and snow easily. Use of this fabric on the underside and foot box helps protect the down on bivouacs

  • PEAQ Down liner that is comfortable next to the skin, highly breathable and fast drying

  • Exceptionally high quality goose down with 800+ fill power

ZIP

  • 1/2 length YKK VISLON® zip that is angled away from the shoulder to prevent body contact whilst user is sleeping on side and to allow easier access from inside

  • Fine microfleece facings and roll over Velcro closure flap at top of YKK zip for extra comfort

  • Two way YKK VISLON® zip for lower access or ventilation whilst zip is drawn up

  • Sleeping bag zip opens fully at bottom to completely open sleeping bag to aid airing and drying

  • Locking zip heads to avoid unexpected zip opening

  • Glow in the dark zip pulls for easier night time location without head torch

  • Two double 3-D volume baffles behind YKK zip that extend past zip end for draught proofing

Construction

  • Outer and inner anatomically designed shape tapers around lower legs and curves around shoulders to reduce cold spots

  • Bag has 3-D construction with side walls to allow comfortable sleeping on side

  • Trapezoidal vertical baffles across chest and around sleeping bag prevent cold spots and down migration to extremities of body

  • Horizontal baffles around lower legs and feet help hold the down in correct location

  • Flipper foot box allows for natural foot position whilst lying on back and more room for thick socks, tent slippers or inner boots

  • Flipper foot box shape begins in lower leg area and tapers from knees to ankles reducing the amount of cold spots

Neck Baffle

  • 3-D shaped neck baffle features Velcro closure at either end and is ergonomically shaped to encase the whole circumference of the neck

  • Split drawcord arrangement in baffle enables further adjustment and pulls insulation closer to front or rear of neck

  • Baffle can be split by Velcro and can fold down whilst in upright sitting position

Upper Bag

  • 3-D shaped hood design based on years of MONTANE® clothing construction experience, in particular the award-winning technical mountaineering jacket hood design

  • Hood shaping to prevent down migration and to limit cold spots

  • Peak visor on hood for improved weather resistance and prevention of weather entry into bag whilst bivvying. Peak helps stop condensation entering bag from inner tent or on contact with bivvy bag. Also helps shield light whilst sleeping in high Arctic / Antarctic summer conditions

  • Rear crown elastication reduces volume around hood which increases thermal efficiency, decreasing the need to wear a hat; ideal for use whilst in sitting position. Elastication also helps hood to move with the head whilst sleeping

  • Split, colour coded face drawcords to control and adjust volume individually around upper and lower face. Drawcords easily accessed from inside the sleeping bag

  • Soft brushed microfleece inner next to chin and mouth area

  • Lower face baffle and upper hood baffle arrangement is 3-D construction to ensure down volume around lower face drawcord area can loft easily
