Weight is everything for a summer alpinist and the pursuit demands a bag that is as light as possible without compromising the critical features required for long ascents at the limit of endurance. The Direct Ascent sleeping bag is equipped with a technical mountain hood, designed to allow a snug fit that moves with the head both when lying down and sitting upright. Its ergonomic body shape reduces cold spots and helps deliver more a comfortable sleep, while the technically engineered foot box has the space to allow both a relaxed foot position and extra layers of tent footwear. The super light PERTEX® Quantum outer shell provides windproof and breathable protection for the down, while its renowned durable water repellency helps shed any tent condensation.
Revolutionary in its fabrication, the Minimus will redefine the limits of sleeping bag use. Constructed from PERTEX® Shield +, a fabric used in technical super lightweight MONTANE® clothing, it is both highly waterproof and hyper breathable. This combination of warmth, waterproofness and high breathability makes for a sleeping bag that is perfect for fast backpacking or fast alpinism where ultra lightweight minimalist tents or exposed bivouacs will be used. Features a YKK Aqua Guard® zip for additional weather resistance and fully taped trapezoidal baffles which are both waterproof and laid-out to minimise cold spots. The Montane Minimus sleeping bag is poised to become the bestselling sleeping bag for Montane of the 2014 season. Hurry, buy this sleeping bag while you can find it in-stock! The Minimus is sure to be a hot seller.

Created for rough and tough conditions, the Prism sleeping bag was conceived for expeditions where high levels of moisture are expected, durability is needed and consistency of function is a pre-requisite, regardless of the sleeping conditions, or what the sleeping bag has been through. PRIMALOFT® is highly resistant to moisture and will maintain much of its insulation even when wet, whilst the PERTEX® Microlight outer shell is windproof, fast drying and highly breathable. One of the most technical synthetic sleeping bags on the market, the Prism has a tailored anatomical form and top stitch panelling across the body to prevent PRIMALOFT® migration. Fabric: PERTEX® Microlight. Montane Prism also available in Olive
