A warm bag with high quality 750 fill power goose down

The ArcticDream range has been designed for all but the harshest and most serious cold weather environments. Engineered to combine low weight, packed bulk and incredible warmth this is ideally suited to the adventurer going on a trip of a lifetime, faced with an ever increasing kit list bill.

Although the bag has been specifically designed for cold dry adventures in areas such as Arctic Circle, Alaska and Siberia. The bag is also suited to any cold sleeper, who needs additional warmth at warmer but still sub zero temperatures.

Tapered, box wall construction with 1000 g of down mapped around the body with concise baffle design - along with more insulation around the foot box, specially shaped shoulder baffle and hood. The outer shell helps keep snow and moisture from entering the bag and the lining helps to keep you comfortable as the sun goes down.

Comes with cotton storage bag and stuff sack.

Fitting guidance

How will you fit? Our guide is based on the user wearing thin base layers.

Spacious: 5ft3 tall or you have a shoulder circumference of around 105 cm. The bag will be perfectly useable but you will have space within the bag. For this reason it will not be as thermally efficient as a optimum fit but it will be comfortable and you will easily be able to wear extra layers.

Optimum: 5ft11 tall or you have a shoulder circumference of around 128 cm. At this size you are the ideal candidate for this bag. You should be able to easily arrange yourself in the bag, and still have the space to wear an additional down jacket if necessary.

Tight: 6ft1 tall or you have a shoulder circumference of around 132 cm. At this size you will start to compress the down and reduce the thermal efficiency of the bag, especially in the foot section and have limited movement around your shoulders when the zip is full closed. You should still be able to take your socks off, but might struggle to take off a top layer without undoing the zip.

ArcticDream 1000 down sleeping bag

Purchased the ArcticDream 1000 down sleeping bag in January 2016 when it was on offer from Alpkit for £200. I have used this sleeping bag a around freezing to -1 and kept over heating. Just used the bag on Helvellyn in February during a cold spell and it performed beyond my expectations. No cold spots including the footwell area. I was wearing a Rab down jacket in the bag due to the cold conditions but had to unzip the jacket during the night. Had a nice frost on the outside of the bag in the morning, no issues. This is my fist item of kit from Alpkit and the build quality and customer service was excellent. Only downside is the price has shot right up!
