Mountain Equipment Firefly Sleeping Bag
The Firefly is the lightest, 'most efficient' sleeping bag Mountain Equipment have yet made, they say, offering 'reliable warmth for minimum weight'. So how did Richard Prideaux get on with it?
What a difference a really good nights sleep can make - you feel better and will get more from those precious days in the great outdoors. With this in mind, we thought we would share "three of the best" from Cocoon's extensive range of sleep and travel equipment.
From the very big to the very small, Cocoon's Air Core Pillows cover a wide range of sizes and weights.
Ultralight backpacker? Hunting grams? Don't think you can stretch to carry a pillow? The new Microlight Air Core Pillow is a mere 48g, packs to a tiny 9x5cm yet inflates up to 32x20cm. For virtually no weight penalty you can indeed have a comfy place to lay your head and rest up for the next big day out.
Developed with the particular demands of long expeditions in mind, this silk liner is quite exceptional.
Small SMX-RS1 : 200x80x48cm / 110g
Medium SMX-RS2 : 215x85x48cm / 120g
Large SMX-RS3 : 225x88x52cm / 130g
Travel to exotic places isn't always glamorous. Hot humid nights plagued by creepy crawlies can really spoil the experience. When it gets really warm, natural silk is still the most comfortable and breathable fabric to sleep in. If it's really tropical and no sleeping bag is required, then a square cut travel sheet gives you extra wiggle room at the foot.
Cocoon has combined it's beautiful silk travel sheets with Insect Shield to give long lasting, effective insect protection.
Tightly bonded onto the silk fabric, Insect Shield is near your skin for best protection, but not on it like a greasy spray. Derived from Chrysanthemum flowers, Insect Shield is a natural formulation that is invisible, odourless and does not change the feel of the fabric.
