Sleeping Bags

Don’t be that GUY!

As a pioneer of the “Light & Fast™” philosophy, MontBell learned early from European mountaineers that our technical equipment must be engineered for reliability in order to be functional for multi-month expeditions as well as the lightning fast assaults that Isamu Tatsuno built his reputation on. With our focus on tough materials with an ethereal quality, we maintain that we are “Light & Fast™, yet designed to last.”

We exclusively use MontBell sleeping bags here at CaptivateM Outdoors. These bags are very well constructed and MontBell offers a bag that will suit every situation less an Arctic expedition. All bags offered, down & synthetic, are comparable in weight and features too any bag on the market. There are lighter bags out there, but not by much. NO bag on the market compares to the comfort of these bags. We spend a lot of time in a sleeping bag each year and we love our MontBell’s.

MontBell offers a full spectrum of Down and Synthetic bags. We will go over a few here, but many more options exist and together we can tailor fit a bag for you. Get in touch and we’ll have you snoring in comfort.

U.L. Super Spiral Down Hugger- MontBell has adapted a classic tailor’s trick by integrating a woven fabric “cut on the bias”. By orienting the fabric’s warp and weft threads at 45 degrees to most major seam lines the sleeping bag becomes more fluid or elastic in nature. Additionally, coiled or crimped fibers are used in the fabric weave to capitalize on their inherent stretch properties. To create an even more comfortable system we utilize an elastic stitch technique to create small “gathers” in the quilting. By combining this stretchy fabric, strategic seam orientation, and the elasticized gathers we offer unrivaled fit and comfort. These innovations allow the sleeping bag to stretch with you as you change positions throughout the night, drawing the insulation closer to your body and eliminating drafty dead spaces. Keep body heat inside your sleeping bag, where it belongs.

DOWN SLEEPING BAGS

You can extend the life of your sleeping bag by storing it loose, in a cool and dry place. At the foot of each sleeping bag are two loops that allow you to hang the sleeping bag when not in use. All down bags also come with a large cotton bag for storage purposes. When washing your sleeping bag, be sure to turn the bag inside out, and zip up all of the zippers. If machine washing, wash on cold and gentle settings. Remember to always use a front-loading large capacity commercial washer, as the agitator in a top-loading washer may damage the sleeping bag. It is important to wash your sleeping bag with a down specific soap. Never use liquid detergents or fabric softeners, as detergents may leave residues that will not rinse out and may wash away the natural oils of the down. MontBell recommends cleaning products made by ReVivex, available at your local specialty retailer.

When preparing to dry your sleeping bag, be very careful when moving it from the washer to the dryer. Lift the entire bag at once from the bottom and carefully place it in a large capacity commercial dryer. MontBell does not recommend using a home dryer as they can sometimes damage the bag. Tumble dry on low heat. Drying may take several hours, MontBell recommends checking the bag often to make sure it is not overheating and that the down is not clumping. If the down is clumping, redistribute the down with gentle massaging. It is also important not to line dry or expose your sleeping bag to direct sunlight for extended periods of time, as the UV rays may damage the nylon.
