By adopting a classic tailor's trick and paring it with only the best materials available MontBell has brought extreme comfort and thermal efficiency to the ultralight world. We found that integrating a woven fabric "cut on the bias" and orienting the fabric's warp and weft threads at 45 degrees to most major seam lines the sleeping bag becomes more fluid in nature. To create an even more comfortable system we utilize an elasticized thread in the stitch to create small "gathers" in the quilting. Through the combination of strategic seam orientation and the stretch provided by gathered quilting we offer unrivaled fit and comfort. These innovations allow the sleeping bag to move with you as you change positions throughout the night, drawing the premium 900 fill goose Down closer to your body and eliminating drafty dead spaces. Keep body heat inside your sleeping bag, where it belongs. *Backpacker Editors' Choice Award 2014

Goose and Duck Down Sourcing

ecinfo_001_00103.jpg

At Montbell, we source Down from both the European and Chinese markets to satisfy a variety of characteristics (supply/availability, low cost, consistent quality, humane practices, etc.) and maintain our lofty standards. Every season we seek to balance the superior quality for which we are known and the lowest possible raw materials cost. We change Down sourcing companies frequently to insure that our customers have access to superior products at the lowest price possible. In the course of these efforts, Montbell never purchases Down from operations that practice “live-plucking” methods. We only utilize Down plumes and feathers collected as a by-product of water fowl raised to meet the demands of the food industry.

We will continue to look for sources of Down that maximize value to our customers and allow Montbell products to perform at the highest level.

SUPER SPIRAL-STRETCH SYSTEM

Montbell has adapted a classic tailor’s trick by integrating a woven fabric “cut on the bias”. By orienting the fabric’s warp and weft threads at 45 degrees to most major seam lines the sleeping bag becomes more fluid or elastic in nature. Additionally, to create an even more comfortable system we utilize an elastic stitch technique to create small “gathers” in the quilting. By combining the strategic seam orientation and the elasticized gathers we offer unrivaled fit and comfort. These innovations allow the sleeping bag to stretch with you as you change positions throughout the night, drawing the insulation closer to your body and eliminating drafty dead spaces. By using a sleeping bag with Super Spiral technology you keep body heat inside your sleeping bag, where it belongs.

900 Fill Power Down

ecinfo_001_00017.jpg

Fill power (or loftiness) refers to the volume in cubic inches that 1 ounce of Down will displace. The higher the fill power, the less Down is needed to achieve a given thermal profile. All other things being equal (fabric, construction method, and fill amount), a product made with high fill power Down (900) is lighter and more compressible than an equally warm one made with lower quality Down (650).
