Alpkit PipeDream 600 Lightweight Sleeping Bag

A high performance lightweight goose down sleeping bag suitable for mountaineering and other daring adventures. It is the middle bag in our PD range and most often chosen for early spring time and late autumnal adventures. Also a very capable lightweight winter bag which should free up more space in your rucksack for smoked mackerel. The insulation, the most important part of any sleeping bag, is 95/5 750+ (EU) fill power goose down. This high quality fill means we need just 600 grams of down to give it a -10C temperature rating. The shell is a lightweight 29gm/m2 ripstop nylon with a choice of left or right hand YKK zip bringing the total bag weight to 950g.
