When you're looking for a year round sleeping bag, you know you can't go wrong with current issue Finnish army gear. These are made by Carinthia, the model is in use by our armed forces. Included is a liner and a compression sack.
As this is designed for military use, the materials and overall properties are all made with that in mind, so the emphasis is more towards durability and reliability.
Comes with a compression bag, which is compressionable both height and lengthwise. Also included is a liner bag to extend the life of the sleeping bag itself - just wash the liner when required and leave the bag alone.
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 less internal volume to keep warm. 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 upper glider does not stick, allowing a quick step out if necessary (in case of alert for example). The bottom glider is stickier 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. Moreover, a Finnish specialty is an extra fire retardant fabric on the outside to prevent sparks from damaging the bag.
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!
Carinthia sleeping bags are not entirely PFC-free, but do have the Oeko-Tex certificate, Standard 100.
Good enough for around the year use, when it gets really cold just add a liner or shell bag (we recommend the Defence 1).
Weight 2800 g for the whole set, full length 215 cm, shoulder width 87 cm.
