The Waterbloc Pro -5° is the lightest, weather proof down sleeping bag on the market. It is perfect for use in humid areas in cooler temperatures from spring to fall.
Thanks to the newly patented STEALTH™ technology, the Waterbloc Pro provides an excellent sleeping experience in all weather conditions. The welded seams keep moisture out. The small pack size and discreet color also make it the perfect companion for bushcraft use, survival specialists and micro-adventures with a tarp as shelter. This allows nights in the open with out a bivybag.
The Waterbloc Pro features an ergonomic fit for enhanced insulating performance as well as a proportional differential cut. The 3D foot box with 11 individually filled down chambers ensures warm feet. A puffy draft collar retains warmth within the sleeping bag. Only RDS certified down is used in the Waterbloc Pro. All EXPED refrains from using environmentally damaging hydrophobic down treatments.
All EXPED sleeping bags in our Trekking, Basecamp and Expedition series can be paired with each other, with other EXPED models, as well as with most sleeping bags from other brands. Included with the sleepig bag is the waterproof stuffsack and the Storage Duffel as a storage bag.

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 do I clean my sleeping mat?
We recommend cleaning the mat with warm water and a mild detergent (no bleach!). Carefully clean the mat with a cloth or soft sponge. Make sure all valves are completely closed. Rinse well. The mat should be allowed to air dry after cleaning. DO NOT put your mat in a washing machine or dryer.
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.
