The Defence 4 may be Carinthias best all-around sleeping bag. Designed for cold and nasty weather, it's no surprise that (among others) also the Finnish army adopted this very model! This here is a reliable choice, designed for very demanding use!

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

Comes with a compression bag, which is compressionable both height and lengthwise.

Bag model

  • 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!

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 4 uses double layered G-Loft filling. Two G-LOFT Plus insulation layers are arranged in such a way that the quilting is offset. The shell is attached afterwards, creating a further layer of air between the quilted insulation and the shell. With no stitch perforations in the shell, it is relatively water and airtight.

Temperature recommendations and size

  • Comfort -15° C, Extreme -38° C, good enough for around the year use, when it gets really cold just add a liner or shell bag (we reommend the Defence 1).
  • Available in two sizes: 185 cm (weight 1850 g, full length 200 cm) and 200 cm (weight 2000 g, full length 215 cm).

Hinta/(lämpö * paino) -suhteelta hyvä pussi. On kyllä todella tilava ja mukava. Ainoa isompi miinus siitä, ettei pussissa ole hartioiden päälle kiristettävää lämpösulkua.

Kelpo makuupussi ja ykkösen kanssa sopiva kovemmassa pakkasessa. Itsellä toimii, kun sujauttaa leveän kuminauhan pään ja pussin ympärille, lämpösulku on siinä ja suuaukko pysyy mukavammin oikeassa kohdassa. Esim joittenkin makuualustojen ympäriltä löytyy sopiva kuminauha.

I've used Defence 4 bags for 15 years, got my third one now. I've occasionnaly used several high end mountaineering down bags, and rugged Wiggys bag, but for me nothing beats the Def 4 for safety and comfort when sleeping rough. It is perfectly windproof, drastically reducing the need for a proper shelter. And it is water resistant enough for you not to care about rain or melting snow. This thing is just perfect in a snow hole as well as on the side of a bare mountain. The zip never catches and never fails. The absence of a collar helps for quick operation and is not an issue in practice. I can't imagine myself taking responsibility for a group at night in tough weather and using anything else than the trusty Def 4 for me to return to.
