Arnie, Hulk Hogan and the Rock could all comfortably tuck up together inside the massive Cold Mountain Dual Sleeping Bag from Darche. The Cold Mountain Dual was designed for the hunter, fisher or adventurer who likes the extra room, and a solid night’s sleep in imperfect weather conditions.
The outer shell is made from water resistant polyester with dual zips for easy access, and with 2 layers of fibre filling you’re going to stay warm all night. The inside liner feels like silk to the touch, and the 3D collar and wind baffle will protect you from an icy breeze. There’s also an internal pocket to keep any valuables or useful tools like a torch or your phone at hand.
Although designed for one, there is more than enough room for two people in this bag. So if you're in need of an extremely roomy and high performaning sleeping bag, you can’t go past the Darche Cold Mountain.
I dispute “more than enough room for two” - only if you are both petite. This has been great for me, I need to stretch my arms out in order to sleep and this bag has been very comfortable. -12 degrees is a very optimistic rating; I have used this bag on 1 degree nights and it was not warm enough on its own. I had to take a hot water bottle to bed with my after being awake for hours the first night. I intend to make a liner for future winter camping. It does have lots of handy drawstrings for wrapping yourself up inside and drawing the hood over your head, and these were very useful on the cold nights.
Very comfy and warm sleeping bag. I have been sleeping in my van around Jindabyne in winter and while I am still wearing some base layer stuff and a mid layer top with beanie and thin glove I am super toasty in this sleeping bag.
Personally I am have been using it on my own and have not tried it with another person in it as I like the room versus a traditional single bag but I think their would be a good amount of room for another person.
Little bit of a squeeze for two people but does the job of keeping you warm nicely. Excellent for for a double swag. Zips down both sides so worries getting in and out for either of you.
Am in love with this bag. Perfect for winter camping!
Bought this sleeping bag as I wanted a double sleeping bag that would suit cold weather as there is nothing worse than being cold camping! This sleeping bag was delivered in days! It is great quality! The zips glide really freely and it gets so warm we had it open as a doona most of the time! Great great product souls suggest anyone thinking about it to get it!
Within a month the stitching started to come undone. At my own expense I had to ship the item back to Darche for warranty. I dealt with Anthony whom said that the product is being replaced and they could no longer offer me the correct item to replace it, so too bad. I asked for a refund but was told no. He now was going to get the dodgy bag restitched and returned to me. As yet nothing has happened and will not answer emails. Looks like I have to go to Vcat to get my item replaced. DO NOT BY THIS ITEM OR ANY DARCHE ITEM. NO CUSTOMER SERVICE OR WARRANTY IT SEEMS!!!!!!
Thanks for getting in touch with us. We're sorry to hear that your Cold Mountain sleeping bag cover had some stitching issues. We spoke to Justin (who you contacted) at Darche to make sure they were on the case - which they assured us they were.
For future reference, feel free to get in touch with us for any warranty issues - we'd be happy to sort it out for you.
Cheers, Laine :)
Really good quality bag, good price and super fast postage! Only thing to be aware of is that it is a true sub zero climate bag and is very warm in mild weather. Others bags that i have bought in the past say they are cold climate but were shit so i didn't fully believe that this bag would be as warm as it actually is.
Super fast service and a great price can't wait to get out and try it out. Packs away easily to just keep shoving it in the bag then sit on it to get the straps done up.
WOW! Order Monday, Delivery Tuesday, open and test that night!
This is a double bed sized bag - size prefered by many singles and enjoyed by many couples. And it is WARM, very WARM. Red centre minus 10 at night - who cares!
Now to learn how to repack it into it's cover.
Hi. Me and my partner are avid festival goers and camp during both the freezing cold of winter AND th 40 degree Aussie summer. The last thing we'd want to do is spend a lot of money on a sleeping bag that's unbearably hot and unusable for half the year. Thanks!
The Darche Cold Mountain 1400 Double Sleeping Bag is quite a warm bag designed to get through cold winter nights, hence the -12 rating. There are a lot of variables to whether this bag might work for you during the warm summer months dependant on body temperature, ground insulation etc. So it's tough to say whether you'll be hot in it, but my guess would be that you would be. One way of getting around the warmth during summer could be to unzip the sleeping bag to allow for more ventilation.
I'm wondering what the length is if the hood is folded back. With a length of 2500 this is too long for both my swag and tent :(.
We actually don't have the 1400 model on display (and unfortunately I can't take one out of the bag for you) but we do have the 1100 and so I've measured the hood on that model and it's 40cm long.
The hoods on both bags should roughly be the same - so the hood on the 1400 should be around 40-50cm.
Is there a zip on the side and a separate zip for the bottom so i can get my feet out?
Yep this bag has a dual zip so it can be unzipped down the side or the bottom, or BOTH! (you can use it like a doona).
I looked at one of these and I saw it has a double zip on the side and a separate zip at the bottom.. I,m wondering how it opens up into a doona when the zip on the side wont come off either end.. You can zip it to the top or bottom to the zip stops but how would it open up with the zip in either of these positions?
Yes, this bag can be opened up to become a doona. The way it works is you drag both zips down to the bottom corner of the bag and then one side of the zip pulls out from both sliders, a bit like a zippered jacket but with two zips. You can then do the same with the bottom as well. You can even go one step further and do the third side leaving you with two single doonas! Very versatile, comfortable and warm sleeping bag! Cheers!
It would be ideal to find 2 x sleeping bags that could be zipped together to fit adult + child and then later separated
Hi Rosalie, yes these can absolutely be zipped together to make a double bag. Just make sure to puchase a left and right hand zip.
Hi Just received my Darche Double 1400 sleeping bag, awesome bag! Although a bit of a fight to get it back in the bag. Practice I guess! Now I was just wondering if they sell a double size liner to fit inside? Or an alternative brand. Thanks Jason
I’ve just had a chat to the floor staff downstairs and they say the exact same thing – it’s an absolute pain to get back into the bag. They would recommend just stuffing it in slowly (don’t fold) as that seems to be the best way to get it back in.
As for a liner, Darche don’t make one, but Sea to Summit make a Double Cotton Travel Liner that is the closest in size. It is a little wider and not as long as the Cold Mountain 1400, so it won’t be a perfect fit – so just keep that in mind.
Could you confirm that the 1400 has a zip on both sides? And also what is the size when packed in its bag. Thank You.
G’day Jason, I’ve just had a look at the display model of the Darche Cold Mountain 1400 Double Sleeping Bag, and I can confirm that it does have dual zips. I’ve measured the bag, and the packed dimensions are 51cm in length x 31cm in circumference.
Can I zip a smaller sleeping bag to the big one to create a larger bag?
G’day Ian, I can’t find any information from Darche that says that you can do this, but we’ve just tried it ourselves in store with a Darche Cold Mountain 900 (Right Zip) and we had success. The compatible zipper for the 1400 is on the left side, so you’ll need a bag with a right zip. It will also have to be a bag from Darche as the zipper coil has to be the same for it to be compatible. Another thing to keep in mind is that with a different sized bag there will be a zipper length difference of 5-10cm, but that won’t affect how they join up at all.
