The new Ultra sleeping bag series
The new Ultra sleeping bag series is characterized by high quality down, the best materials and the perfect combination of optimal thermal performance, smallest weight and pack size. The perfect companion for all who are looking for a very special sleeping bag.
EXPED has over 30 years of experience in manufacturing high quality down sleeping bags. We have used this experience to develop the new Ultra series. This high-end sleeping bag line combines the best materials available with great attention to detail.
In the manufacturing process, however, the focus is not only on the extremely high-quality materials, but also on the issue of sustainability. Thus, the new sleeping bags are made from recycled material and the entire production is CO2 neutral.
During the development we haven't looked at the price. We just wanted to use the best materials which are out there. The shell fabric is made of 10 D recycled ripstop nylon. The finest 15 D ripstop nylon of the lining fabric feels very soft and silky on your skin. For the filling we use the best available, high-quality and RDS certified goose down.
Because the focus also was on sustainability, we use a plant based PFC free impregnation. The cords, the webbings and even the YKK-zipper was in the first life a PET bottle.
For the Ultra series, we use the proportional differential cut. This means that the lining fabric is cut narrower than the shell fabric. This allows the down to loft to its best. The Ultra sleeping bag models are also characterized by size differentiations between medium and large, not only in length, but also in the widths.
As a first brand, EXPED uses different sizes for one sleeping bag series. There is medium and large, but also medium wide and large wide. So, everybody can find a sleeping bag for their fitting needs. The Ultra series features the intricately designed, comfortable 3D triangle footbox, and the zipper flap prevents unpleasant cold spots. The adjustable elliptical draft collar nestles around the neck, minimizing draft and heat loss.
The new ULTRA series includes many different models and sizes: Ultra 10°, Ultra 0°, Ultra -5°, Ultra -10°, Ultra -20° and the Ultra XP. The very high quality down, the best materials and the combination of optimal thermal performance, smallest weight and pack size, make this high-end series the ideal companion for all adventurers looking for a very special sleeping bag.
