Travel light and fast through alpine terrain with the Mountain Equipment Xero 550 sleeping bag. It's stuffed with high-quality 850-fill goose down to keep you warm when temps dip just below freezing. Warm, light and compressible, this top-quality sleeping bag features 850-fill-power goose down for a great warmth-to-weight ratio; down is sourced from small farms in Ukraine. He30 outer shell material and hood lining is lightweight and very breathable; soft lining fabric is lightweight, breathable and downproof. Slanted box wall baffle construction keeps down from shifting so you won't feel any cold spots in the middle of the night. 7 baffles in the hood provide excellent down control without adding cumbersome weight. Features a single anti-snag, down-filled draft tube behind the zipper and a neck collar to keep warm air from escaping. 4-baffle foot piece is constructed to minimize down compression and shifting so your feet stay toasty warm on cold nights. Alpine fit has a semi-tapered profile at the shoulders and a tapered lower leg section to keep weight to a minimum. Elastic stitching in the lining of the bag adds nominal weight but effectively minimizes dead airspace around the body for great comfort. Ground-level side seams allow the top layer of the sleeping bag to wrap fully around your body. The Mountain Equipment Xero 550 sleeping bag comes with a roll-top waterproof compression sack and a mesh storage sack.
Mountain Equipment's Xero 550 +12 Down Sleeping Bag is designed for the most dedicated minimalist users like fast-moving alpinists and big wall climbers. Ground level seams and re-profiled down distribution deliver improved thermal efficiency and cut weight and bulk. Elasticized stitching, the heart of EXL technology, further improves loft and comfort while 850-fill down traps precious body heat. The He30 outer shell is exceptionally lightweight and highly breathable.
