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.

It was to be the adventure of a lifetime. Cold, dry weather; remarkable landscapes; and an ever-growing kit list. You need a sleeping bag you can 100% depend on, one that won’t weigh you down on the way in, one that won’t fill your entire pack.

The ArcticDream was made to protect you against all but the harshest and coldest weather conditions, combining portability (low weight and compact pack-size) with incredible warmth to keep you safe and warm in cold and dry environments.

A classic expedition bag: the tapered anatomical cut helps you retain warmth, with a shaped shoulder baffle and snug hood to fend off the draughts. The lightweight nylon outer with DWR coating keeps out snow and moisture.

Vertical chest and foot baffles stop the down from migrating round your bag, preventing cold spots. Extra insulation at the feet keep your extremities warm.


Nikwax Hydrophobic is a water repellent treatment that makes down less susceptible to humid conditions, staying lofted for longer and prolonging the overall lifespan of your down.


We use only RDS certified down; all our down is audited by a third party to ensure that it comes from birds who are not live-plucked, force-fed, or mistreated. That’s good to know.

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.

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

Awesome bag keeps me warm and toasty while wildcamping . Only issue I have is the colour .not very inviting in a cold tent . Alpkit please change it to orange or red
