No camper, climber or hiker need ever sleep cold again. First Ascent’s top-of-the-range Blue Wolf sleeping bag has a comfort rating of –25°C, making it suitable for the serious adventurer planning on spending time in the most extreme conditions, from the Drakensberg to Antarctica.

The Blue Wolf is a premium goose down sleeping bag. Its design features a differential cut (the outer shell is cut larger than the inner lining), a three-dimensional construction (top, bottom and sides, allowing maximum loft), and overfilled chest and foot sections. The inside hood is oversized for a snug fit, a twin-collar baffle ensures maximum heat retention, and the zipper system is easy to work, with a convenient, quick-draw closure mechanism.

Other features are a chest baffle and face baffle for extra comfort and warmth, and an internal pocket for valuables.
