Sure, backpacking in the Rocky Mountains isn't as intense as camping at Everest Camp III, but that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice a top quality sleeping bag because you aren't on top of the world. That's why Valandre went through years of painstaking research to give you the highly innovative Expedition Shocking Blue Down Sleeping Bag. With premium 850 gray goose down insulating this bag, the folks at Valandre feel that you can sleep soundly in below zero temps. The Shocking Blue is shockingly durable and light thanks to its nylon ripstop shell, and the polyester ripstop lining only complements its light strength. Plus, both the shell and lining are treated with DWR so you'll stay dry when water seeps through your tent. Valandre's hard work is shown through the Shocking Blue's baffle, hood, and draft collar construction. The complexity in assembling ninety one pieces in a 3D baffle construction is quite baffling, but Valandre succeeded that feat to give you a sleeping bag with baffles that vary in height in different areas depending on where you need warmth and movement most. For example, the Pyrenean foot box contains a lot of baffles so you don't have black toes in the morning, and it's designed to follow the flex of your foot so you can move naturally while you sleep. Its static drawcord allows you to tighten the hood down over your head and across your neck so no wind blows down your body. And you can zip the Marie Antionette draft collar so you can sit up comfortably to play a game of cards with your friends while you wait out some storms.
