Light and compactable, duck and goose down is elite sleeping bag insulation. The quality of the down is measured in ‘loft’ which measures the volume of air trapped between the feathers. The higher the loft value the more trapped air, therefore the greater the sleeping bag warmth on offer.
Moulds to the body to create the greatest sleeping bag warmth and heat retention per gram of weight

Lasts longer when looked after well
Effectiveness is impacted when wet and takes longer to dry
