Extreme Cold Sleeping bag
« on: June 11, 2019, 07:27:09 pm »
Looks like my bucket list trip to Canada and Alaska isn't going to happen.
Mortgage stress and my wifes job insecurity.
If you need more information or  photos please connect. I'm giving local people first chance at these before they go to eBay at a premium to cover the eBay fees and charges
Postage extra and negotiable

My Berghaus Ulvetanna Sleeping bag
Factory filled with 1200grams of 800+ Hyperdry down and with another 300 grams added to bring it in line with the FF SnowyOwl
Please PM me for pictures and an approximation of shipping as it depends on insurance and priority
I am asking $900- Australian dollars This is less than half price and the bag is new and unused except for one nights trial
300mm of free loft and conservatively rated to -55C with the top up

The name “Berghaus Ulvetanna” sounds interesting. Where is this company based?

Berghaus are a UK based company
They used to produce some really good equipment and clothing but I think they have changed ownership because recently all they seem to sell is crap fashion oriented gear. This was a bag that was labled and used for a specific Antarctic expedition to climb Ulvetanna, and is probably one of their better bags

But because Alaska is winter is much colder than the Antarctic in summer I had a local business top it up with another 300 grams of down of equal quality and fill power. It is the equal of the FF Snowy Owl except that the overfill means it is a little tighter now. I am an XXL in the shoulders and I can't wear my big down parka inside it But you would not need to
I can send pictures to your email if you like
