More a "climbing tool" than just a "normal" sleeping bag, the Valandre La Fayette is the ultimate superlight, high-altitude expedition bag, designed for hardcore alpinists making fast and light ascents without Sherpa support or fixed ropes.
By renouncing all of the long-held beliefs about sleeping bag construction, Valandre was able to create the LaFayette Sleeping Bag using 85 individual pieces and parts that surround 850-fill goose down for an incredibly lightweight yet unbelievably comfortable place to sleep. Oui - this bag is so innovative, it was awarded Best Outdoor Product of 2001 by the French Outdoor Press.
