Patagonia Spent 45 Years Designing the Best Sleeping Bag Ever

For the past 45 years, Patagonia has made some of the best outdoor clothing and accessories. Now, the company finally released a line of sleeping bags, which have been 45 years in the making. In 1972, Patagonia founder, Yvon Chouinard, started work on the first Patagonia sleeping bag. Since then, his design has been tweaked to perfection. After 45 years, the Patagonia 850 Down Sleeping Bag is finally being released.

Patagonia perfectly nailed every detail on this bag. Weighing less than ½ kg, this bag is extremely lightweight. The weight of a sleeping bag is crucial when it comes to hiking or climbing as every single kilogramme counts. Even small increments in weight can make a climb that much more gruelling. That is why a lightweight sleeping bag is a must for explorers that trek miles before they sleep. The Patagonia sleeping bag is water-repellent and dries very quickly.

The 850 Down Sleeping Bag is constructed from a nylon ripstop shell and lined with ethically-sourced goose down. A unique baffle construction ensures that the down stays equally distributed. This helps eliminate cold spots.

Patagonia’s Sleeping Bag comes in two different versions. One is recommended for temperatures as low as -7 degrees Celsius, and the other is fine for -1 degrees and above. Both were EN tested and rated.

These bags are perfect for a range of outings and equally useful for the weekend backpacker and the alpine rock climber. The sleeping bag is available in two colours—Electron Blue and Sporty Orange. There are three different sizes to choose from—short, regular and long.
