PipeDream 400 Hydrophobic down sleeping bag
New for 2017 is Nikwax Hydrophobic down, certified by the RDS to ensure the PD400 continues to set the standard high.
The PipeDream 400 has a box-wall construction to give a lightweight fine tuned sleeping bag with the adventurous traveller in mind. Optimised with 750 fill power down to get the most warmth, yet weighing only 865 g. With no unnecessary features this specialist bag uses 400 g of 90/10 goosedown and is suited to 3 season use or as a liner bag for winter trips.
The bag has a DWR coating so the odd drip of condensation or early morning dew won't ruin your bag’s insulation and the dark colour scheme absorbs heat from the sun - so if your down is unlucky enough to get wet, it will dry quicker.
Supplied with cotton storage bag and lightweight stuff bag.

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 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: 5ft11 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: 6ft1 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.

Spring trip to NZ South island
I used this bag through November 2016 in the S.Island NZ for backcountry fishing exploits - down to around 0 degrees some nights. This bag is made for such a climate and as an all round solution for world travellers avoiding Alpine conditions below around -5 min it must be one of the very best out there. Very comfortable dimensions for me 5'11" 98kg broad shouldered and superb pack size / weight. No frills so long term test will need appraisal a few years down the line. If it's anything like my old skye-high for durability it will pass with flying colours - would love one in Dark grey, Olive or Black. Alpkit colours a little bright for me generally. Also watch the price as usual guys.
Bought this for winter use with a cloud cover, and for those colder months around summer. So far haven't needed the cloud cover. Camped in subzero temperatures on the Yorkshire three Peaks and was so warm it was unzipped all night. Then on the summit of Snowdon where it was -6˚ and blowing a gale. This time zipped it up but was still warm and comfortable.
It's lightweight, roomy, packs down well in a stuff sack, is warm and really well priced. Recommended.
terrific light weight bag - fab for bike packing
Brilliant sleeping partner
From bikepacking to wild camping to sleeping on a friends sofa, this is a quality sleeping bag and worth every penny.
great sleeping bag, light warm perfect, saved me on my trip. 10 days in a tent in late September in Iceland and i wasn't cold once. For cost/weight/size i think its one of the best on the market. and British! cant recommend more. I work as a rep and hear great things about Alpkit products in general from everyone i meet. also very good customer service, very helpful people so thank you very much
