800+ loft DWR treated duck down is our premium choice – a must for the gram counters. This high-lofting white duck down delivers luxurious warmth at a fine feathery weight. This down has excellent compactability and loft recovery.
Down is the best insulation for lightweight sleeping bags due to its loft, compressibility and durability. However, this golden fibre has a failing: its ability to insulate drastically decreases when it is wet.
The solution is now here – DWR DOWN. This down has been selected to meet our rigorous standards, with a durable water-repellent (DWR) treatment applied after the cleaning and sorting process.
The benefits of DWR DOWN are:
- It absorbs less water in damp conditions
- It retains higher loft (insulation) in damp conditions
- It dries faster
Camp Lite sleeping bags are made using lightweight and highly breathable 20-denier Vapour Vent fabric. This strong, compressible and highly breathable fabric is ‘downproof by construction’: the tight weave keeps the down in but allows water vapour to escape. This reduces the possibility of clamminess and allows the down to loft fully for maximum performance.
