The extremely lightweight and compact 3-season sleeping bag
- lightest construction with recycled Pertex Quantum shell fabric
- adjustable elliptical draft collar
- downshift function for enhanced heat distribution
The thick draft tube backing the YKK zipper provides excellent heat retention. The anti-snag stiffener ensures smooth operation of the zipper.
The double ended zipper has reinforced sewing to increase strength in sensitive areas.
The elliptical draft collar with elastic cinch cord allows the collar to be fully closed over the shoulders, keeping warmth inside the sleeping bag with reduced material bunching.
The elliptical draft collar can be closed with a snap to ensure all-round insulation.
The Hood and Draft collar can be cinched closed and adjusted with cords.
The glow-in-the-dark zipper puller makes it easier to find.
The large zipper garage keeps the zipper head away from the face.
The Ultra -5° is an extremely lightweight, compact 3-season sleeping bag for those who do not compromise in their equipment selection. Perfect for trekking, long-distance hiking, mountain touring and bivouacs. For all those who are looking for a lightweight sleeping bag with the widest possible range of use. With the Ultra -5°, the pack weight can be reduced to an absolute minimum.
The filling of finest, RDS-certified goose down with 850+ cuin fill power gives it an excellent, uniform thermal performance. The circumferential, I-beam down baffles allow the down to be shifted as needed, adapting the sleeping bag to the given outside temperature and the sleeping mat being used.
However, the focus of the Ultra series is not only on the filling, Exped also employs only the finest of the finest when it comes to manufacturing. Pertex Quantum is applied as the shell fabric, which is made entirely of recycled polyamide. Components such as the zipper and webbing are made of recycled PET bottles.
The Ultra sleeping bag 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 Ultra sleeping bag is available in five different sizes - so anyone can find the right option!

What are EN values for sleeping bags?
The EN (European Standard) rating is a rigorous test designed to set measurable goals and standardize the marketing of sleeping bags. It is designed to help consumers make an informed decision by using independently derived temperature ratings.
Each EN sleeping bag test results in four temperature ratings - upper limit, comfort, lower limit and extreme, with the following definitions:
Upper limit - the temperature at which a normal man* can sleep without excessive perspiration. It is made with the hood and zippers open and with the arms outside the pocket.
Comfort - the temperature at which a normal woman* can expect to sleep comfortably in a relaxed position.
Lower limit - the temperature at which a normal man can sleep in a curled position for eight hours without waking up.
Extreme - the minimum temperature at which a normal woman can stay for six hours without risk of death from hypothermia (although frostbite is still possible).
For the purpose of these measurements, it is assumed that a "normal man" is 25 years old, 1.73 m tall, and 73 kg; a "normal woman" is 25 years old, 1.60 m tall, and 60 kg.
The three most common ratings are comfort, (lower) limit, and extreme. For men's bags, most companies advertise the Limit rating, and for women's bags, the Comfort rating, although it can vary."
How should I store my sleeping bag?
It is best to store the sleeping bag in the mesh storage bag provided. This will ensure that the insulation retains its maximum bulk and thermal performance. When traveling, it is okay to compress the sleeping bag and carry it in the included stuff sack.
When you return from a trip, it is very important to let your sleeping bag dry completely. Then store it in the mesh storage bag in a dry and temperature controlled place.
How do I wash my sleeping bag?
If you wash your sleeping bag too often, the insulation can suffer (down or synthetic). The insulating power may decrease. We recommend cleaning the sleeping bag with a damp sponge. If the sleeping bag needs a more thorough cleaning, use only a front-loading machine (no agitator!) and a special detergent from Nikwax or McNett.
Before you put the bag in the washing machine, close the zipper. Use a cold water and gentle wash cycle, and after the wash cycle is complete, run a second rinse cycle without detergent. This will ensure that all detergent residue is removed. Two spin cycles will help get a lot of moisture out of the sleeping bag.
It is best to hang the sleeping bag afterwards and air dry it. Keep massaging the sleeping bag the down tufts apart. Depending on the humidity, it may take several days to dry completely. If you need to dry it faster, use a tumble dryer on low heat (often there are special down drying programs). To loosen up the down in the dryer, you can put some tennis balls in the dryer with it.
