Mountain Equipment Camp & Hike Glacier 700 Sleeping Bag Left Zip - Mens Imperial Red Regular. Trapezoid 15:11cm baffles running horizontally throughout the top half of the main body have been combined with slanted box-wall baffles on the underside of the bag to strike a balance between down control weight and versatility. The all-round focus of this group of bags ensures that both the fill-weights within individual baffles and the down density within individual baffles have each been tailored according to the diverse range of uses these bags will be subjected to.Considerably lighter than the original DRILITE LOFT fabric but still with the same highly water resistant 1500 mm hydrostatic head DRILITE LOFT weighs approximately 55g/m2 and is the ideal fabric for sleeping bags destined for serious mountaineering climbing and backpacking in difficult conditions.Our all-new Lode Lock system with its low profile auto-locating closure combines all the advantages of a magnetic fastener with those of a mechanical lock. Rendering the traditional press-stud collar closure practically obsolete its one handed quick release closure uses two captivated internal magnets to draw the locking mechanism together and ensure that once connected it cannot be accidentally opened. The result is an insulated collar that is more efficient and easier to operate.
