Canadian Arctic Sleeping Bag
Canadian Arctic Sleeping Bag

A modular sleep system from the Canadian Armed Forces – in rare new condition; perfect for cold weather adventures. Consisting of five separate components, this kit offers significant protection from extreme cold:

1. Outer bag (NSN 8465-21-842-6078). Nylon with down insulation. Weight: 2.2 kg. Width: 80 cm (shoulder), 50 cm (foot).

2. Inner bag (NSN 8465-21-842-6079). Nylon with down insulation. Weight: 2.2 kg. Width: 75 cm (shoulder), 50 cm (foot).

3. Liner (NSN 8465-21-842-6080). Cotton. Weight: 0.8 kg

4. Hood (NSN 8465-21-842-6081). Nylon outer, cotton inner and synthetic insulation together with Velcro fastenings and elasticated arm loops. Weight: 0.3 kg.

5. Storage sack (NSN 8465-21-107-4616). Water resistant nylon with a draw-code closure. Can be used as an emergency water carrier. Weight: 0.3 kg.

Approximate total weight: 5.8 kg. Packed size: 66 x 37 cm.

Both bags feature high quality brass YKK zips and baffles along the length of each to eliminate cold spots. Ties enable the bags and liner to be fastened together.

The hood is designed to be worn like a balaclava; the sleeping bags then fastens around the collar of the hood which extends down the back, shoulders and chest. Velcro at two positions on the hood allow the opening to be adjusted based on the temperature and user's preference. In milder conditions a single bag could be used.

We would estimate a 'comfort' temperature rating of below -25 °C based on our experience of winter camping in quality down bags. Please note that this is just an estimate. We believe these bags were originally rated to -40 °C.

For comparison we have included a picture of one of our used Canadian bags next to an Alpkit Alpine Dream 900 (-20 °C comfort rated).

Condition
With the exception of some minor storage marks on the exterior of the sack this kit is in new condition.

If you're looking for a flexible sleeping bag for use in extreme conditions you won't be disappointed with this superb example.

Shipping to Europe from £20 and the USA from £30.
