Valandre | Down Sleeping bags | Description :
The Valandre Mirage Sleeping Bag combines a full differential cut, pre-cut anatomically formed baffles and ultra-light Asahi-Kasei Impact 66 Ripstop Polyamide fabric gives you a bag that will almost keep its loft even without down. But although that would work wonders for the pack size, we’ve added 12oz. of 850+ French Goose Down just to keep you comfy. Built on the principles of the best-selling Shocking Blue and the La Fayette, the Mirage goes ultra-light using Asahi Kasei Impact 66 Ripstop Polyamid 37g/m squared throughout the bag, employing a ONE THIRD length (13.5in) left zipper and leaving out the draft collar. While the temperature rating should eliminate the need for a draft collar, the zipper is positioned between the shoulder and neck, where the need for insulation is less. Also the Valandre Mirage is cut wide to accommodate layering if needed. Consider using this bag in conjuction with the Kiruna Jacket.

Bloody mary | Valandre | Down Sleeping bags
Valandre | Down Sleeping bags | Description :
Valandré introduces a three-season sleeping bag that exceeds the performance of all other three-season bags on the market: the Bloody Mary. Featuring Valandré’s Tubular Bell construction, an interchangeable collar system, and the world’s best French Fat Grey Goose down, the Bloody Mary will take you across three seasons in amazing comfort.
At the heart of the Bloody Mary is an interchangeable collar system. Three different levels of thermal protection are a zipper pull away. When the temperature is dropping fast, zip in the heaviest of the collars and feel the snug warmth that is sealed in the main body section. Meanwhile, the hood envelopes your head with a perfect layer of insulation. As conditions lighten, zip out the heavy collar and put in the mid-weight collar. This collar rests gently on you neck, providing some ventilation while holding most of your warmth in the bag. And finally, as summer is in full swing, don’t get a lighter bag, just leave the collars at home, open the main zipper for full ventilation, and extremely flexible comfort.
If the collar system is the heart of the Bloody Mary, the French Fat Grey Goose down is the muscle. Valandré only uses down from the French Fat Grey Goose, a bird capable of migrating at 30,000 feet (10.000m) in -60°F (-50°C) temperatures for days on end. The down is harvested right before the traditional migration time, when it is fresh, clean and at its plumpest. Then, Valandré selects only the lightest down and fills each compartment with just the right amount.
The foundation that all of Valandré’s sleeping bags are built on is our Tubular Bell construction method. Each Bloody Mary is made from 83 individually cut panels and baffles tailored to fit perfectly around the human form. And when these compartments are filled with the French Fat Grey Goose down, they actually lift off of your body as the bag warms up. This isn’t just a container for the down, it is a technological marvel with all components working in harmony to provide the best warmth-to-weight ratio in the industry.

Guess who supplied the High Altitude down equipment, who allowed Mrs Oh Eun Sun ( South-Korea), to become the first woman to complete her 14th 8000’s April 27th 2010, and guess who supplied the second: Mrs Edurne Pasaban (Spain) May 24th 2010, and guess who supplied Mrs Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner (Austria) on her 13th 8000 this year? Professionals make no mistakes, so why should you?
