The SHOCKING BLUE is a high quality four-season sleeping bag designed for cold weather expeditions at high altitude. Due to its compatibility with Valandre’s Combi full suit and its relatively light weight (48.6oz/1380g), it has become a standard bad in the high camps of the big mountains.
The bag has 850-fill down from the famous French grey goose, 80 custom-cut fabric panels assembled in a 3D-baffle construction, a spacious comfortable foot box as well as a super warm neck baffle. Its hood is designed with the 3D-half-moon techniqueand its static draw-cord allows you to tighten it down over your head and across your neck, so no wind blows down your body and your forehead stays warm. The zip-away Marie Antoinette draft collar allows you to sit up comfortably and use the bag not only for sleeping but also for sitting around in cold conditions.

This bag is amazing. I used it during a bivy at -10F without any issue and I\'m not a particularly warm sleeper. The bag is very functionnal and roomy to store stuff or to allow really serious layering in case of emergency. I don\'t know how valandré managed to build roomy bag so warm with only 800grams of down. I\'m amazed.
