The Sea to Summit Traverse XtI Sleeping Bags is very versatile, suitable for a broad range of activities in a variety of environments.
The Traverse Xtl Sleeping Bag features:
• The difference between this STS bag and other down bags is in moisture management. A thin layer of synthetic insulation between the outer shell and the down allows sweat vapour from within this bag to pass through, but traps moisture from entering.
• The bag's outer 3D NanoShell is a high-density weave polyester ripstop fabric treated with Nano DWR that is chemically bonded to every fibre so that it won’t rub or wash off like other coatings and gives maximum water repellency and breathability.
• A rating down to minus 7 degrees Centigrade.
• A relaxed mummy shape with oversized neck collar, larger hood, broad shoulders and chest and generous room around the knees, gives a comfortable fit but excellent heat retention.
• A full-length side and foot zip allow for conversion into a duvet.
• The fill is of highest quality 850+ loft European Goose Down – 400 grams of fill in the Regular length model, and 440 grams in the Long version.
• The top shell is cut larger than the lining to allow the down to be uncompressed when it lofts
• A 60:40 fill ratio gives extra down in the top of the bag where it is most needed and less in the bottom where it gets insulation from your mat.
• Off-set baffles and side block baffles prevent the migration of down.
• The box foot is tapered to naturally accommodate the angle of your feet.
• The Zip draft tube has a stiff liner to prevent snagging.
• The hood is designed to minimise heat loss around your head and face.
• The neck draft tube has dual elastic adjustment to keep out drafts.
• The 2-way YKK zippers allow you to unzip the bag from top and bottom to better regulate temperature.
• An internal zippered security pocket allows storage of batteries, wallet, passport, etc.
• Other extras include a lightweight compression bag, a mesh bag for storage and a laundry bag.
