It is made using a Pertex Quantum ripstop shell 52gms/m² (formerly Pertex Microlight) filled with 500g of 700 FP Polish Goose down. Trapezoid construction eliminates cold spots enabling a comfortable nights sleep. Neck and zip baffles keep out drafts, whilst 2-way YKK zips enable venting to help you control the temperature inside your sleeping bag.
A DWR treatment of the shell helps protect the down from any dampness that may occur in your tent, from condensation or wet gear. When in its stuff sack, the pack size of 15 x 15 x 30 cm is relatively small, leaving room in your rucksack for your other items.
