Mountain Equipment


Sleeping bags are among Mountain Equipment's most well known items. It makes a variety of sleeping bags for different uses and temperatures. The brand's Helium series bags have minimal weight and bulk for easy packing for camping and travel. Designed with high loft 10-ounce duck down fill, the bag keeps you safe down to 0 degrees Fahrenheit and comfortable down to 28 degrees. It’s packed size is just 10 inches by 6 inches and it weighs 25 ounces total. The bag has a streamlined alpine fit with a hood for plenty of head warmth.

Also part of the lightweight Helium series, the Helium 600 is filled with 38-ounce duck down for a bit more warmth. It keeps you comfortable down to 19 degrees Fahrenheit and safe outdoors down to temperatures as cold as -9 degrees. The bag weighs 37 ounces and packs down to a size of just 7 by 9 inches. Its baffles keep the down in place, so the bag does not get cold or overly hot spots.

Mountain Equipment's Glacier sleeping bag line is made for moderately extreme conditions, with highly durable construction and water resistant outer material. The Glacier 500 Sleeping Bag, which has 500-gram duck down, is available for men or women. It packs down to a size of just 7 by 11 inches, and it weighs 41 ounces. The bag's small packed size makes it convenient to carry when backpacking or hiking, especially into situations where you need a bag that can withstand wet weather. It keeps you comfortable down to 23 degrees Fahrenheit and helps you stay safe overnight while camping in temperatures as low as -6 degrees. Like other Mountain Equipment sleeping bags, the Glacier 500 has exquisitely placed baffles to prevent the down from shifting and creating cold spots. It has a hood to insulate the head, and also has ground level side seams to further prevent cold spots.

If you like to adventure in very extreme conditions, Mountain Equipment's Snowline sleeping bags can keep you safe. Ultra warm, 800-gram goose down insulates comfortably at temperatures as low as 1 degree Fahrenheit while keeping you safe at temperatures down to -35 degrees. The brand's groundbreaking EXL® design gives the bag elasticized stitching to prevent cold pockets of air from getting inside. Other innovative features, such as full baffles throughout the bag and neck baffles, prevent heat loss through the air and ground.

On top of its unbeatable products, Mountain Equipment has strong ethics. The brand supports numerous worthy causes, such as the European Outdoor Conservation Association, Community Action Nepal, mountain film festivals, Mountain Rescue UK and the Sport Scotland Avalanche Information Service. You can feel good about buying Mountain Equipment products, not only because of the quality you get, but also because of the brand's environmental and social support.
