The Vaude Arctic 1200 Primaloft Sleeping Bag is a fantastic choice for extreme, cold expeditions where there's the chance of wet weather.
Vaude have chosen a highly insulating synthetic filling for the Arctic 1200. The PrimaLoft Black Highloft filling found in the Arctic 1200 makes for an exceptionally warm sleeping bag. Another real benefit of this filling over down is that it performs fantastically even when wet.
The baffle construction of the filling also makes sure that the warm PrimaLoft stays where it is meant to. This avoids cold spots and keeps you cosy all night long.
The Arctic 1200 features a 'mummy shape' design; wider at the shoulders and tapering down to the feet. This maximises the insulating properties of the sleeping back by reducing the volume inside. With less air circulating, you'll retain heat better and stay warmer. The mummy shape also reduces bulk, weight and pack size.
A hood is a real essential for an extreme-conditions' sleeping bag. Vaude have naturally added a highly insulating, snug-fitting hood to the Arctic 1200, making it really warm for a great night's sleep. The highly adjustable hood opening can be altered to suit your preference, reducing right down to a small air hole for extremely cold nights.
A bonus feature for extra insulation is the extreme warmth collar, preventing draughts and retaining heat in key areas.
At the other end of the Arctic 1200, Vaude have included a foot box. This unusual design feature uses a drawcord to separate the end of the sleeping bag from the main section. In this way you are able to minimise the volume of the sleeping bag and tailor it to your body length.
Another great use for the foot box is to keep clothes or shoes warm and dry. It can also be used as a convenient stuff sack for the rest of the sleeping bag, avoiding the need to carry a separate storage bag.
A real problem of camping in cold conditions can be condensation on the inside of the tent. Both the head and foot ends of the Arctic 1200 are made out of waterproof material. This is a fantastic design feature, preventing you and your sleeping bag from getting wet if you stretch out or move during the night.
Finally, a nice little extra feature of the Arctic 1200 is a small inner pocket near the head. If you like listening to music at night, this zipped pocket is ideal for an MP3 player or phone. Alternatively, keep small valuables close by for security.
