Pertex Quantum 7 Denier Nylon

Offering a perfect balance between weight and durability this fabric helps to keep weight to an absolute minimum without sacrificing on performance. Coming in at a mere 22g/m² it is ultralight and has been double calendered to ensure stability and down-retention. Calendering of a fabric means that it passes through hot and heavy rollers to seal and strengthen the weave.

900 Fill Power European Down

900 fill power European sourced and processed Down is likely not something you’ll come across every day. It is fine, warm and resilient enough to withstand repeated packing and use while the hydrophobic treatment, developed in conjunction with Nikwax, offers excellent water repellency to help maintain loft in damp conditions and promote faster drying times.

Differential Cut

differential cut allowing loft of insulation

In order for down insulation to perform it needs space to loft and trap the air. In many sleeping bags the outer and inner are cut the same size, however, the Mythic range utilises a differential cut which takes into account many different factors, including baffle height, fill weight and fill power, to ensure the down has just the right amount of space to loft. This also helps keep the weight down due to less fabric being used.

Trapezoidal, Box-Wall Construction with Chevron Shaped Chambers

The box-wall construction of a sleeping bag helps to reduce cold spots - when you add in a trapezoidal cross section heat retention is further advanced due to there being a consistent spread of down throughout the bag. The chevron shaped chambers of the sleeping bag help to keep the down exactly where it should be instead of running the risk of down migrating to the sides of the bag leaving cold spots on the top.

Overall Verdict

If you are looking to take the absolute minimal weight on overnight trips without being willing to sacrifice your comfort, this is a great option. The award winning range covers year-round adventures so you can choose the most suitable one for your needs.
