Swing 900

Equipped with the finest down of the Pyrenean duck, the Swing 900 is a great 4-season-bag for your first winter experience at an affordable price. Its classic H-box construction - all sewn at a 90° angle - has 17 continuous compartments offering a perfectly balanced anatomical shape, just like the Bloody Mary and other bags of our elite line.

The hood is easy to adjust, the inside is seamed with overlock stitches, and the generous volume of the bag allows the user to layer up in case of a serious temperature drop without compressing the membrane.

The shell fabric of the SWING 900 is made of solid polyamide on the outside and polyester on the inside, both of which are 100% produced by Asahi-KASEI in Osaka, Japan.

I have this sleeping bag for 6 years now.I love it.I use it for trekking in high altitude areas till 5800 m or in winter in swedish lappland.I never froze.Normally I use it for lodge trekking with temperatures till -5/-8 degrees Celsius.Some times I had to use it outside with - 15 degrees.I had to use a second down jacket,but very ok.

I use it 5 weeks per year.After 5 years I sent it to Valendre for cleaning and refilling.Now it is like new.
