Valandre Shocking Blue NEO

Shocking Blue NEO

The SHOCKING BLUE NEO 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 bag in the high camps of the big mountains.

The bag has 800-fill (EU) 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 technique and 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.
