MONTANE’s new Minimus sleeping bag is not available until Spring / Summer 2014, but it has already been recognized with a respected OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD at the recent OutDoor show in Friedrichshafen, Germany. Judged by a panel of international outdoor industry experts, the OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARDS recognize products that push the boundaries of innovation, quality, functionality and sustainability. The Minimus sleeping bag was credited for its revolutionary and innovative design that provides a waterproof, highly breathable sleeping bag which is incredibly lightweight.
The Minimus is constructed from PERTEX Shield +, a fabric used in technical super lightweight MONTANE clothing, making it both highly waterproof and hyper breathable. Filled with 12.1oz of high quality 800+ fill power goose down, the Minimus holds an impressive warmth to weight ratio with a total weight of just 30.6oz. The EN Comfort rating is 37°F with a Comfort Limit of 28° F. The bag has fully taped trapezoidal baffles which are both waterproof and designed to minimize cold spots. This combination of warmth, waterproofness and high breathability makes for a sleeping bag that is perfect for fast backpacking or fast alpinism where ultra lightweight minimalist tents or exposed bivouacs will be used.
