Sleeping bag fabrics

Polyamide / Ripstop

Fabric that is extremely fine and light, but at the same time also down-proof. Fabric is heat-treated to make it softer. Ripstop structure means that a reinforcement check is woven into the fabric with thicker yarn. The Denier number (D) expresses the fabric’s thickness, e.g. 30D or 15D

Meryl 35 / Ripstop

Superlite sleeping bag fabric. Meryl fabric is made of microscopically fine filaments exploiting the latest technology.

Ultralite R/S

DuPont Tactel Ultralite Ripstop Polyamide. Lightweight fabric woven from DuPont Tactel microfilaments, with structure strengthened by a strong Ripstop knit.

Fill power

The fill power value is expressed in the springiness and bounce of the down. 700 is an extremely high value and reflects good insulation and the high quality of the down.

90/10 Down

High quality down in ratio 90 / 10. 90% down and 10% small feathers, giving the filling more springiness and lightness.

Quattrofil 7

Seven-cavity fibre, which stores heat within it and insulates efficiently against cold.
