Care

Cleaning Your Down Sleeping Bag

We recommend hand washing your sleeping bag, but it must be done carefully. Rough handling can tear the interior baffles. A washing machine should not be used.

Use a non-detergent soap. Specialised down soaps are available from good outdoor stores. Fill your bath with enough lukewarm water to cover the bag. Work the suds in gently. Do not twist or wring your bag.

Rinse until all the suds stay white, two or three times at most. Rinse thoroughly the last time to remove all traces of soap. Press firmly but gently to remove as much water as possible.

When carrying your wet bag ensure you support it entirely to prevent any internal damage caused by the wet and heavy down.

It is best to dry your bag naturally over a period of time. Initially lay it flat on the floor. Once partially dry it can be hung outside. Warm windy days provide the best drying conditions.

Finally your bag can be tumble dried on a gentle cycle. You must use a large commercial drier. Do not use a household dryer.

The down may clump together in the drying process. These clumps should be broken apart gently by hand, or if a drier is used, place a tennis ball in with the bag to prevent clumping.

Do not dry clean your sleeping bag. Some dry cleaners may offer a washing and drying service for down filled items, check with them first.

NOTE: By using a sleeping bag liner you can keep your bag cleaner for longer, minimising the need to wash it.

Sleeping Bag Down
We often get requests for extra down to be added to a sleeping bag due the perception that the bag is no longer as warm as it was when new.
The baffles of Macpac sleeping bags are designed to accommodate a predetermined amount of down to give optimal loft. So, adding extra down will not allow the down to loft fully, which means there is no increase in warmth. In most cases, you can restore the lofting ability of the down in your sleeping bag by washing the bag.
 
Zips
The manufacturer of our zips, YKK, intentionally makes the zip slider from a soft alloy. This is so the slider (which is relatively easy to replace) wears out before the zip teeth (which are very difficult to replace). So, when zips are used extensively and in dusty or dirty environments the inner parts of the slider are worn away to a point where they cannot bring the teeth of the zip together effectively.

To get the worn sliders working until they can be replaced you can use a pair of pliers to gently squeeze the sides of the slider together. This should allow the slider to bring the zip teeth together. Don't use too much force because you can jam the slider.

Always try to keep the zip teeth as clean as possible. Wash them with fresh, clean water and lubricate with a silicon lubricant suitable for use on fabrics. This stops the dirt and dust from wearing away the insides of the sliders.

Design

Our starting point is to design sleeping bags that provide the best environment for a better night's sleep. Two factors are critical for a good night's sleep: warmth and comfort.

We crafted the optimal balance of sleeping bag elements (down, fabrics and technical design) to create the warmest and most comfortable sleep imaginable.

Factors contributing to warmth
Premium down carefully distributed in trapezoidal baffles; ergonomically tailored fit; differential cut; twin chamber directional draft tube; premium fabrics that keep you warm.

Factors contributing to comfort
Little things count so we have come up with: soft touch dome closure – no scratchy velcro; heat transfer labelling – no annoying tags around your face; soft touch recessed drawcords – for a soft snug closure; Through foot zippers – no more sweating feet and extra ventilation on those warmer nights, and the zipper construction that allows two bags to be zipped together.

European standard EN 13537
Our sleeping bags have been independently tested to European standard EN 13537.

It's the little things we've considered in designing these bags from the inside out that ensure you get a better night's sleep. After all, the reason you want the warmest and most comfortable sleeping bag available is so you can rest your mind and body to go wherever your adventurous spirit takes you tomorrow.

Baffle construction
All of our sleeping bags are constructed using a trapezoidal baffling system, which delivers a higher degree of warmth and performance when compared to other baffling systems.

Consistent down distribution
The shape of the trapezoidal baffles and their interlocking nature deliver very stable structure. The result is a consistent distribution of down throughout the bag.

Reduced heat loss
In sleeping bags, where the stitching of a baffle wall comes in to contact with the outer of the bag you have a point of conductive heat loss. The offset nature of the walls of a trapezoid baffle minimise this heat loss keeping you warmer for longer.

Soft touch drawcord
Soft touch draw cords are used in the down collar and hood closures of most Macpac sleeping bags. The Soft Touch System wraps the draw cord casings in Polar-guard polyester batting to provide a soft and comfortable surround.
For ease of operation all our bags use silicon coated nylon in their draw cord casings.

Down

Down keeps you comfortable while you sleep by trapping warm air, heated by your body, within the down plumules. The down plumules form pockets of warm air, which surround you, keeping you insulated and comfortable. The quality of the down is the crucial factor that determines how well your bag will perform. The quality of down is measured by a variety of standards, the most important being fill power which measures loft. Loft is the ability of down to expand and fill the space in your sleeping bag baffles. The greater the loft of the down, the greater the insulating performance.

We have selected different types of down for each type of bag to deliver optimum performance and comfort.

Down in your Macpac sleeping bags
Macpac has carefully sourced our down to ensure premium loft, warmth and durability.
Our goose down is of the highest quality. Birds matured naturally in the harsh mountain climates produce down with well-developed and robust plume structures, providing excellent loft and resilience.

The Down in each of our range of bags are:

Sanctuary XP 90/10 Goose, 800 loft
Latitude (XP) 90/10 Goose, 700 loft
Escapade 80/20 Duck, 600 loft
Express 90/10 Goose, 800+ loft


FAQ
Q: Is the down plucked from live animals?
A: No it’s not. Our down supplier only sources down that’s a by-product from the meat industry. 

Q: How do you guarantee the fill power of the down?

A: Every batch of down is independently tested by the IDFL (International Down & Feather Laboratory) and fill power is guaranteed.

Fabrics

Pertex® Endurance

Pertex® Endurance technology incorporates an ultra-thin membrane with a durable nylon face fabric. This layer is so thin that it hardly adds any weight, nor does it affect the softness of the material. Pertex® Endurance fabrics have one main objective – to provide maximum protection from moisture. This works both ways:

  • Keeps water, snow and wind out (Hydrostatic Head: 1,000 mm)
  • Allows moisture to pass freely from the inside – this keeps your bag dry from condensation.

The membrane of Pertex® Endurance is both highly breathable and water and wind resistant, protecting the insulation material to maintain loft and retain warmth.


Pertex® Microlight

The Pertex® Microlight range offers some of the softest and lightest fabric in the Pertex® portfolio – essential when grams and ounces count. Microlight is made from tightly woven yarns. When used in sleeping bags the dense weave will prevent excessive heat loss through the fabric. This will actually make the sleeping bag warmer without adding weight. Using 33 decitex/30 denier yarns, it is both downproof and windproof, water-repellent and durable. Perfected during intensive research and development, Pertex® Microlight is a proven winner.


Pertex® Quantum

Pertex® Quantum is the lightest fabric the good people from Pertex® ever made. It is a true featherweight at around d 30g/m2, using the finest yarns available with the maximum thread count. Pertex® strongly believes that less weight shouldn’t mean ‘please be careful’. Pertex® Quantum stands its ground and shows the best strength to weight ratio. Tear strength and seam strength are good for its weight and it can easily be used in shell jackets and withstands the abuse of hardcore use. Thanks to its dense weave, Pertex® Quantum is downproof and can be used for any high-end application in sleeping bags, down jackets and expedition gear. It is a gear freak’s dream.


30D Nylon Taffeta 

30D Nylon Taffeta is a high density 30 denier lightweight and highly breathable taffeta fabric.


20D Nylon Taffeta 

20D Nylon Taffeta is a high density 20 denier lightweight and highly breathable taffeta fabric.

Sizes

With so many options choosing a sleeping bag, can sometimes be a difficult decision. We've designed a simple table to help you work out which on is best for you.

BACK LENGTH
Measurement is taken on the inside bottom bag from top hood to foot seam.

SHOULDER WIDTH
Measurement is taken on the inside bag bottom along the fourth baffle stitch line down from top hood.
Measurement excludes zip.

Choosing the right size
If you want maximum warmth, choose a size that leaves the minimum air space between your body and the inner walls of the bag. Note: if your bag is too small, you won't be comfortable and the down will remain compressed and unable to loft efficiently.
We offer you three sizes to help you get the most comfortable and effective fit.

Temp rating

EN 13537 Temperature rating

Measuring temperature ratings is a complicated process because your personal experience can differ largely based on factors such as clothing, sleeping mat, weather conditions, level of fatigue and nutrition.
The temperature ratings of our sleeping bags are in accordance with the European standard EN 13537.

Comfort 
The temperature at which the person in the sleeping bag is in thermal equilibrium; not feeling cold throughout the entire body. (reference: standard woman in standard conditions; in relaxed posture, such as lying on back).
 
Limit of comfort 
Lower limit of comfort range. The temperature at which the person in the sleeping bag is in thermal equilibrium; not feeling cold throughout the entire body. (reference: standard man in ‘fighting against cold’ situation; such as rolled up body posture).

Extreme
Lower temperature extreme where the risk of hypothermia occurs. Situation of high cold stress, which can be maintained for a limited duration of six hours. (reference: standard woman in standard conditions of use; rolled up in the bag to minimise thermal loss through the sleeping bag).

“Waterproof at the head and feet and filled with 800+ loft goose down, the Latitude is a great choice for super cold conditions with minimal moisture. It comes with a waterproof stuff sack which folds at the top like a normal dry bag. The zip has a fat baffle roll and a press-stud secures the top of the sturdy two-way zips. The foot zip helped to regulate my temperature. Great for sub-zero conditions.” Belinda Smith, Wild magazine
