Product of the month - whether in the winter bivouac on a ski tour, an alpine tour or during a freezing cold night in the VW bus: a good sleeping bag will keep you warm in harsh conditions. One candidate that does this job better than many others is the high-end Kryos sleeping bag from Mountain Equipment.
The kryos is an ultralight, extremely small compressible and technical down sleeping bag with excellent heat and weight ratio. The fitted, weight-saving cut makes this sleeping bag an ideal companion at low temperatures.
Best filling, fine inner material and a breathable outer layer
The kryos Mountain Equipment has long been tinkering to find the balance of heat output, pack size and heat output. Primarily, the shape was optimized and the outer shell was reduced to the bare minimum and correspondingly complex. The exterior material was the waterproof Drilite Loft Xero, which is one of the lightest in its class with 28g / m2.
The Drilite Loft Xero can also be found inside the hood and in the foot part. There, the 800-Cuin down filling protects against moisture in the resp. Numerous chambers ensure an optimal distribution of the down and thus prevent areas without the warm down feathers.
