This is the bag for the active mountaineer climbing winter alpine routes and/or peaks of 6000-7000 metres in South America and the Greater Ranges. Because of its waterproof shell, you can bivouac out in the open or use single-skin shelters without ever having to worry about your down becoming damp. The shell fabric not only has a quiet handle (for rustle-free sleep), but it is considerably more robust than the lightweight fabrics commonly used. Our policy is that ruggedness and durability come first. Look at our sleeping bag selection chart for guidelines.
The Torpedo 700 can be upgraded with the addition of one of new Radioactive range of sleeping bag liners (which can also be used as stand-alone ultralight bags) which will be available from Spring 2015.

Down is a very resilient insulating material and with basic care, any down sleeping bag should last you a very long time (if not your entire active climbing life).
There are two simple rules to ensure longevity:
1. Always store your sleeping bag uncompressed in a dry, airy place
2. Try to keep it as clean as possible to minimize washing (this ultimately damages the down).
NEVER machine wash an eVent-shelled down sleeping bag. We highly recommend you hand wash your down sleeping bag or, alternatively, use a professional service. You can download washing instructions here.
