Odin NEO

Designed for extremely low temperatures at high altitude, the Odin Neo brings warmth and comfort to the climbers, allowing them save energy during the night and gather strength for the next day.

At 1,650g the Neo is 10 percent lighter than its predecessor but without having to make any compromises with the quality. It’s the opposite really: the bag is better isolated and protected offering a genius inside volume, which avoids compressing the down membrane, and hence cold spots. The static draw-cord cinches the Odin's hood over your forehead tightly to optimize isolation so warmth can't escape. The draft collar compensates for different lengths needed to protect your shoulders, neck, and throat and keeps you toasty from head to toes.

Valandré Odin Neo is basically a Shocking Blue, which has been in excellent service for many years. If you have ever tried the Shocking Blue just imagine that we have simply “super-sized” it for the Odin Neo: we kept the inside dimensions and volume and increased all baffle heights and down load by 30 percent. It’s yet another warm Valandré bag for extreme and cold altitudes.

No joke. This bag is absolutely superb. It feels and looks like a quality high dollar bag. It's roomy, packs down just slightly bigger than my kelty 20° bag that really should be rated more for about 40° F. I've slept in this bag a little below zero degrees. I want to say it was negative 4 F but can't remember for sure. I had one layer on and it has always kept me super warm. I have left it open like a blanket and slept in it at about 45° and as comfortable. If I got warm I'd adjust it. It repels water very very well. The exterior fabric reminds me very much of my silnylon tarp. Honestly I'm confident you could put a water hose to it and I doubt you'd get wet. Water just runs of it. I had a water bottle drain onto it once in my Jeep and it was completely dry inside after being soaked on my entire 12 hour work shift. The neck baffling system takes a little getting used to on how to operate properly. It does do an incredible job at synching you up and keeping warmth in and cold out. I'm not sure that it's really all that necessary though with a well made neck baffle system. It's probably a little overkill and tedious than it needs to be. This bag is well worth the money. I like it more than my Western Mountaineering Antelope. Which is also another fantastic bag for the money. Oh one mods thing. I've never been a fan of being so constricted in mummy bags because I'm a side and stomach sleeper and when I'm on my side I like to hike one knee up. I do have enough room in this medium bag that I went with to get my knee up far enough to be comfortable. I'm short but very broad shouldered and stocky. I'm 5'6 and 180 pounds and have plenty of room in the medium.
