1. Select Zip

Most right-handers prefer left zip bags as it's easier to reach across your body to your left side to use the zip when lying on your back. The opposite is true if you are left-handed.

The ArcticDream range has been designed for all but 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 1200 g of down mapped around the body with concise baffle design - along with a specially shaped shoulder baffle and hood as well as more insulation around the foot area. 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.

Stays dry and retains loft up to 60 times longer than untreated down. It’s water based formulation is PFC-free and will not harm you or the environment. Absorbs 90% less water than untreated down, restoring performance much quicker.

This mark indicates that the down in this product does not come from birds that have been live-plucked or force-fed, and that their welfare has been protected from the time they were hatchlings to when they are slaughtered. That’s good to know.

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.

Simply put, the best sleeping bag I've ever used. Worth the extra weight in your pack to be toasty all night!

superb bag

I used this for a fortnight in North East Greenland earlier this year.
Static camp and splitboard trip, so limited carrying and some opportunity to air and dry.
temps from -25 up to -5.
the bag performed excellently throughout these ranges, though -5 was getting difficult to regulate heat.
the bag is excellently featured, and showed no weak points despite a really abusive environment.
paired it with an alpkit bivi bag to keep off spindrift and general camp chaos.
