The most lightweight bag in the Defence family, the Defence 1 is intended for summer and early autumn/spring, when the temperature stays at or above 0° C. Very lightweight and packs into a super tight bundle!

The Defence sleeping bag series is designed for military use, the materials and overall properties are all made with that in mind.

Bag model and features

The mummy shape: Here the criteria of stuff size, weight and warmth are most important. The tapered foot section reduces weight and stuff size. The main advantage is, however, that from the knee downwards there is a decreasing amount of extra volume to warm up. The foot section should not be so small that the feet cause the layers of insulation to poke out. A trapezoidal foot section has proven to be ideal. A wedge shape, declining evenly in width from top to bottom, does not fit the true proportions of the body.

Two-way zipper: All Carinthia military sleeping bags are equipped with a two-way zipper. The glider on the top does not lock, allowing a quick step out if necessary (in case of alert for example). The bottom glider does lock and can be opened for ventilation.

Trapezoidal foot section: Experience has shown that the trapezoidal cut provides the ultimate foot space. In a normal sleeping position, the feet do not poke the insulation outward, avoiding cold spots. There is also enough room to store a shoe bag or extra clothing.

The outer shell fits loosely over the bag innards, providing an extra insulating layer of air. This also eliminates heat loss due to seams combining the shell with the fillings. Overall this feature enhances the bags performance considerably!

Defence 1 model does not have attachment loops for a liner bag. A liner can still be used, of course, it's just not fixed to the bag. Comes with a compression bag, which is can be compressed both ways.

Materials

  • Shellproof outer shell - a lightweight, hard wearing, ripstop reinforced and specially treated polyamide which is both wind and waterproof (1000 mm), yet breathable.
  • Shelltrans lining - a soft to the skin ripstop reinforced polyamide with excellent moisture wicking capabilities keeps you comfortable through the night.
  • Thermoflect, a very thin, very lightweight aluminum material which reflects body heat. Thermoflect raises the sleeping bags heat-retaining capacity by about 11 %.
  • G-Loft filling - Carinthia's own, in-house "hollowfiber", made in Austria. Highly compressible, excellent weight-insulation ratio and also moisture resistant, meaning that it will work even under long-term use in damp conditions.
  • Defence 1 uses single layered, lightweight G-Loft filling. In this lightweight design, the outer shell is loosely attached to the bag. The G-LOFT Plus filling is quilted to an insulating scrim. As a result, an additional air pocket is formed between the quilted insulation layer and the shell, yet no cold seams can occur.

Temperature recommendations and size

  • Comfort 3° C, Extreme -12° C, perfect for summer use and even some of the cooler nights, by adding a bivvy or liner bag you can take this into even colder places.
  • 185 cm, shoulder width 83 cm, packed size 18 x 25 cm, weight 1050 g
  • 200 cm, shoulder width 87 cm, packed size 18 x 28 cm, weight 1200 g
Pro tip: use the Defence 1 as an insulating liner with the Defence 4 bag to create a winter sleeping bag combo! They can be packed together into the compression bag of the latter, making for a simple and versatile system.

Mainio pussi, nukuttu -12c ilman lämmönlähdettä melko hyvät yöunet, lämpimämmällä säällä taas hieman liian kuuma, hikoilutti vietävästl +12c parvekkeella nukkuessa (oli myös Carinthian sisälakana mukana hiostamassa lisää) ei siis varsinainen kesäpussi, ainakaan suljettuna. Laadukas työnjälki ja miellyttävät materiaalit.

Tykästyin intissä carinthian pussiin, mutta halusin astetta kevyemmän, sillä loppuunpestyllä kiertopalkintopussillakin oli lähes joka tilanteessa liian kuuma. Defence 1 on elementissään siinä +8- +14 lämpöasteen välillä, +5 asteessa varmasti pärjää vielä kun on sukat jalassa ja pipo päässä. Lämpimämmässä tulee tälläkin pussilla hiki, jos haluaa vaikka hyttysten takia nukkua pussi kiinni. Pukeutumisella, hyvällä alustavalinnalla ja mahdollisesti vielä sisäpussilla tällä pärjää suomen luonnossa oikein hyvin kaikkina neljänä vuodenaikana, lapin pakkasiin en välttämättä tällä lähtis. Pakkautuu noin puolet pienempään tilaan kuin Defence 4/intin pussi. Puolikas tähti lähtee avuttoman pienestä pääaukosta, sais ennenmmin olla isompi aukko hyvillä säädöillä.

Tilasin alkavaa retkikautta varten, mutta olenkin nukkunut sillä makoisasti omassa sängyssä.

Pari yötä nukuttu sisälakanan kanssa, ulkolämpötila about +7 ja +10. Lämmin oli. Luonnollisen talikerroksen omaavana luulen tällä pärjäävän pikkupakkasillakin mukavasti. Pussin mukana tulleella kompressiopussilla sai paketin pieneksi.

I give much higher marks to the Defence 4 sleeping bag for its easily insertable and removable liner. The Defence 1 is sturdy, relatively warm for its weight, and the zippers work well. It compacts into a relatively small space, and seems to breath well. I am disappointed in its lack of a zipper or even internal tie downs for a removal liner, such as the Carinthia liner used in the Defence 4 or Finnish M05 variant. The liner is very, very important in field conditions as I sometimes have to wear footwear in the sleeping bag. I really don’t want to wash the bag that often and compromise its loft. Having said all that, I would still recommend this bag to a moderate field user. The price is quite good, and it was shipped very quickly to Canada. I will be experimenting with the Defence 1 in my Sarma Thermal Cloak, or my Jerven Fjellduken thermal bag this winter, so I may update this review.
