Whoever talked you into going on a winter camping trip probably has a bag similar to Mountain Equipment's Glacier 1000 Sleeping Bag. This bag boasts light, lofty 700-fill down insulation that ensures warmth in brutally cold temperatures, and the insulation keeps the bag light enough for backpacking in higher altitudes during the shoulder seasons and summertime. Mountain Equipment made the shell out of light, breathable, and ruggedly water-resistant Drilite Loft II fabric with box-wall baffles that enhance the bag's overall watertight protection when last night's storm starts to creep into the floor of your tent.
The Mountain Equipment Glacier 1000 Sleeping Bag is a down sleeping bag for cold weather adventures down to four degrees Fahrenheit. The Glacier 1000 is packed with the fill power of 725 duck down to keep you toasty throughout the night. The mountain Fit is semi-tapered mummy shape for efficiency and comfort as you drift into dream land. The Gemini collar wraps your neck softly to prevent drafts from sneaking inside.

Are you gearing up for a serious alpine adventure? With a European Norm lower-limit rating of 3degF, the Mountain Equipment Glacier 1000 down sleeping bag is built to perform in harsh weather. Insulated with high-loft, premium 725-fill-power duck down for warmth, light weight and compressibility. Highly water-resistant DriLite Loft II outer shell fabric helps protect the down from moisture while you're backpacking and climbing. Silky soft lining is highly breathable, comfortable and durable. Ground-level side seams allow the top layer to fully wrap around your body and keep the draft tube in place, further helping prevent cold air from seeping through the zipper. Trapezoid offset baffle construction uses slightly angled walls, allowing less material to be used; weight of bag is reduced while retaining loft and thermal efficiency. 4-baffle trapezoid footbox is wide in the toe area and narrow at the heels for comfort that does not compromise warmth. Protecting the head and neck, the hood features 7 baffles and an anatomic fit to provide warmth and low weight. Mountain Fit features a semi-tapered mummy profile to maximize warmth and minimize weight without restrictiveness. 2 overlapping antisnag draft tubes on both sides of the full-length zipper and a semi-floating neck collar drape comfortably to block the escape of heat and seal out drafts. The Mountain Equipment Glacier 1000 sleeping bag comes with a roll-top waterproof compression sack and a mesh storage sack. European Norm (EN) is an independent third-party temperature rating, allowing accurate comparisons across brands with other EN-rated bags.
The Mountain Equipment Glacier 1000 +4 Down Sleeping Bag is the go-to for mountaineering and high alpine adventures. Fit for everything but the absolute extreme expedition, it features lightweight, compressible construction that keeps you warm and protected all night long. The 725 fill duck down insulation is kept dry by a DryLite face fabric so you never loose loft to condensation.
