Crux Torpedo 700 Sleeping Bag: 25 Degree Down


Product Details

Using only ethically sourced Polish goose down, the Crux Torpedo 700 Sleeping Bag has a fill power in excess of 925 for complete warmth and total comfort when sleeping on the wall. Alpinist and engineer, Carol McDermott, founded Crux in 2002; all of Crux's products are designed in his home, located in the South of France, pinned between Carcassonne and the Pyrenees. With a temperature rating of 25 degrees Fahrenheit, the Torpedo will excel during summer ascents in the high alpine whether you're climbing in the Andes, Rockies, or Pyrenees. A waterproof, breathable eVent membrane prevents moisture from working into the Torpedo's high quality goose down fill and promotes breathability if the temperatures start to climb throughout the night. A soft anthracite lining maintains top-shelf comfort when you're sleeping in your skivvies, and a highly water-resistant Riri Aquazip zipper prevents water from wandering in. An included roll-top stuff sack packs the bag down to around thirteen inches, while a storage sack keeps the bags exceptional down in top form for your next ascent.

Price : $ 1098.95

Three Season Sleeping Bags Checklist

Down vs. Synthetic. The age-old question. Down bags pack down tighter and are a few ounces lighter. On the negative side, they are useless when wet, often take forever to dry (and many can't be tossed into a dryer), and tend to be more expensive.
Heading Out in Wet Weather? Then get a synthetic sleeping bag...period. This way, if your bag gets wet, you won't have a useless sleeping bag for the rest of your trip.
Float Camping? Again...get a synthetic bag. Be a bummer to have your bag end up in the water and become useless for the rest of your float trip.
Where Ounces and Packability Matter. Then go with a goose down bag. This is especially true if you are a bike camper, climber or camp in the desert.
