High fill power down in a comfortably spacious design makes our SkyeHighs our most versatile range of sleeping bags. New for 2017 is Nikwax Hydrophobic down, certified by the RDS to ensure the SH500 continues to set the standard high.

The lightest bag in our SkyeHigh range SkyeHigh 500 has 500 g of 650+ fill power 90/10 duck down to keep you warm and the bag light. It is an ideal summer bag that you can take to the mountains or on an extended trip to the land of your dreams.

The excellent compressibility of down means it squishes down small to fit in your rucksack. The box wall baffle construction and trapezoid side baffles eliminate potential heat loss and prevents down migrating from front to back.

NIKWAX HYDROPHOBIC 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.

RESPONSIBLE DOWN STANDARD
The down we use is certified RDS (Responsible Down Standard). 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.

Key features
  • C6 DWR coating
  • Box-wall construction
  • RDS certified: All of our down is ethically sourced, not live-plucked and not force fed

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 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.
