A real heavy-duty arctic winter sleeping bag, the Defence 6 is designed for extremely cold conditions and is a sure bet for any northern climates!

  • Four season bag with Comfort rating of -18° C / -0.4°F
  • Made of military grade materials

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 bottom 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 bag's performance considerably!


  • 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 aluminium material which reflects body heat. Thermoflect raises the sleeping bags heat-retaining capacity by about 11 %.
  • G-Loft filling - Carinthias own, in-house "hollow-fibre", 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 6 uses triple-layered G-Loft filling. Three 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 fairly water-resistant and free of unintended ventilation.

Carinthia sleeping bags are not entirely PFC-free, but do have the Oeko-Tex certificate, Standard 100.

ostin tämmösen uudenvuoden tienoilla ja pääsin heti testaamaan äärirajoja hieman alle -40C. hinta on myös kohillaan, kävin ennen ostamista katsomassa muista liikkeistä talvi pusseja jotka olivat kaikki kalliimpia ja extreme raja oli alempana.

Pikkusta vajaat 30 pakkasta ja tässä pussissa nukutti paremmin kun keskoskaapissa aikanaan. On joka rahan väärti jos talvella tykkää ulkona yöpyä. Onhan pussilla kokoa joo, mutta hymyillen tätä rinkan läpän alla kantaa kun tietää että hyvät yöunet odottaa.

Minulla on ollut tämä pussi muutaman vuoden käytössä ja täytyy sanoa että on hyvä. Lämmittää hyvin, mutta jos jostain syystä ei ole kylmä niin ei tule tukalan kuuma.

Ainoa miinus on ulkona olevat helteet... Laadukas kokonaisuus ja iholle täydellinen sisämateriaali . Odotan talvea :)

Omat kokemukset muutamasta pakkasasteesta pariin plus asteeseen. Aivan loistava pussi vaikka kokoa onkin. Jalkatilaan mahtuu hyvin vaatteita kuivumaan tarvittaessa. Pussin sisällä on tilaa kääntyillä. Ehdottomasti paras puoli siinä, että kun kömpii pussin sisälle niin alkaa lämpö palata kroppaan nopeasti takaisin. Talvella menin kylmillä varpailla nukkumaan, heräsin lämpimänä. Ei tarvitse kuumavesipulloa tuottamaan lisälämpöä.
