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 increasingly less internal volume to keep warm. 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 snag, allowing a quick step out if necessary (in case of alert for example). The glider on the down side does stick 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 the attachment loops for a liner bag. It can still be used of course, it's just not fixed to the bag.

Materials

  • Shellproof outer shell - a lightweight, hard wearing, ripstop reinforced and PU coated polyamide which is both wind and waterproof (1000 mm) and yet breathable.
  • Shelltrans lining - a soft to the skin ripstop reinfoced polyamide with excellent moisture wicking capabilities keeps you comfortable through the night.
  • Thermoflect, a very thin, very lightweight aluminium material which reflects body heat. Thermoflect raises the sleeping bags heat retaining capacity by about 11 %.
  • G-Loft filling - Carinthias 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 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.
  • Available in two sizes: 185 cm (weight 1050 g, full length 200 cm) and 200 cm (weight 1200 g, full length 215 cm).

On oikein kelpo makuupussi. Omasta en ole löytäny: "Kasvoaukon peittävä vetoketjullinen hyttysverkko, voidaan kääriä ja napittaa pois tieltä tarpeen mukaan." Ehkä lisävaruste tai jotain, tai sitten tosi hyvin integroitu :)

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.
