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.

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?

Après avoir délaissé mon clavier pendant plus de 2 mois… j’arrive enfin à lâcher mes piolets pour vous donner quelques news… l’acide lactique et la lactate étant trop présent dans mes avant bras pour taper sur les touches !!!

La saison de glace a été (j’utilise le passé, car le réchauffement de ces derniers jours est en train de de démolir nombres de joyaux….) tout simplement magnifique. Tout étant formé, les t° largement négative (voir un peu trop même…), et la neige bien présente (là aussi voir un peu trop…).
