Thermarest Antares Down Sleeping Bag Hitting the high street this month is Therm-a-Rest’s new range of water-resistant sleeping bags using Nikwax Hydrophobic Down, designed to keep you warmer, drier and safer.

Nikwax Hydrophobic Down™ is being built into sleeping bags and garments worldwide:  Therm-a-Rest is the latest brand to launch a range of outdoor products using the solution.

Nikwax Hydrophobic Down is much more resistant to wet conditions than untreated down. Untreated down quickly loses its fill power and insulating properties in damp conditions, whereas Nikwax Hydrophobic Down can maintain its loft, and fill power, even when the outer fabric is saturated.

The NEW 3-season Antares HD sleeping bag from Therm-a-Rest features a new ThermaCapture lining, a sewn-through insulated bottom and Nikwax Hydrophobic Down to boost the warmth and performance of its most versatile unisex bag.

Features include:

  • SynergyLink mattress straps to keep bag securely attached to sleeping mat
  • Draft collar
  • Full-length zipper draft tube
  • Snag-free zipper
  • Cinch hood
  • External zip pocket
  • Stuff sack and storage sack. 
  • Comfort temperature ratings: -3°C Women / -9°C Men
  • SRP:  £420.00
