Alpkit's warmest bag - An expedition standard high quality 750 fill power goose down bag

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 1400 g of down mapped around the body with concise baffle design - along with a specially shaped shoulder baffle and hood, the foot box also contains slightly more insulation to keep your feet cosy. 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.

Fitting guidance

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

Spacious: 5ft11 tall or you have a shoulder circumference of around 100 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 an optimum fit but it will be comfortable and you will easily be able to wear extra layers.

Optimum: 6ft4 tall or you have a shoulder circumference of around 124 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: 6ft7 tall or you have a shoulder circumference of around 128 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.

Life capsule!

I used this down life capsule for 9 days in February camping in the Norwegian and Finnish Arctic interior down to -35C, and I'm a cold sleeper. My (now retired) stove rarely worked properly due to the low temps, so I had to eat half frozen stew before bed a lot, which is obviously not the ideal way to fuel up for a long night in those kind of potentially life-threatening temps.
. It's unforeseen problems like the stove where this bag really shines and give you an extra margin of safety. For the packed size and weight it's pretty amazing, only thing extra I like to wear some knit wool socks my Siberian mother in law sent me, feet felt a little cold in the morning. Down regulates heat better than synthetic, so I can also easily use it in the Cairngorms on winter bivvies as well in a balmy -5 or -10C. At the end of the day it's only a few hundred more grams than the cooler bags, so I went for the top dog.

If you are looking for an extreme sleeping bag for a very reasonable money then this it. If you want to find a similar product then you will have to spend twice as much or more. Well done ALPKIT !!!
