The Downex 800 Plus is loaded full of features which makes it one of the best down sleeping bags around. It uses a combination of vertical and horizontal baffles to help ensure the down is positioned to generate maximum loft.

This lofting out creates pockets of warmth which rise to up to a massive 12 cm high. This puffy-ness is generated by the goose down which lines the pockets and expands pushing the shell sides apart. Warm air is then held between these layers keeping you warm.

Another important feature of these down sleeping bags is the build in draft tubes. These tubes line the inside of the sleeping bags zipper and block cold drafts from entering the bag. As well as keeping the draft out the also add a soft padded layer between you and the zip. The result is a more comfortable sleep.

To ensure smooth entry and exit from the sleeping bag high quality YKK zippers are fitted. There are two zippers so should you get a little too warm at night then  either zipper can be opened.

At the foot end of the sleeping bag you will find a square shaped foot area. This foot area gives you more room in the bag. Because of this the sleeping bag will not be squeezed. This squeezing can flatten the down reducing the warmth of the sleeping bag. The result is warmer feet.

Tips on Use

When you first get your sleeping bag remove it from it’s compression bag. These sleeping bags have been stored in their bags for a while so will appear flat and crumpled when you first see it.

Air it out in a warm area and shake it occasionally for a few days, this will help restore the bags loft and remove any residual smell from production. We advise doing the same a few days before it’s use and that it is unpacked as soon as you reach your hut or campsite. Down sleeping bags need time to loft out, the more they loft out the warmer they will be when used.
