PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
This sleeping bag is meant for high altitude expedition, general expedition, and winter alpine climbing. According to Valandre, this bag sleeps down to -22° F.

A high altitude sleeping bag is key to success and survival. Unproven gear cannot enter adventures near the limit, the Odin from Valandre is proven, and climbers worldwide have trusted it for years.

The Odin sleeping bag, and in fact Valandre, have roots in the last french national K2 expedition in 1979. In France, Maurice contacted a "Tech-guy" Andre Vandeputte, who was working on a new revolutionary baffle system that would increase the insulating capacity, and at the same time knock off 30 to 40% of the total weight (The passage from a "double stitched though system" to a "compartment (H-box wall) system"). Exactly what Maurice needed for his own Himalayan ambitions. So Maurice "helped" Andre develop the full line of ultra light down equipment (jackets, pants, mittens, booties, and sleeping bags) that he needed for himself and his wife Lillian. From scratch, products were directly developed to serve in the most severe conditions, so Andre and Maurice needed a name.....Valandre or the Valley of Andre.

Maurice developed a sleeping bag, that could be used with an expedition down parka. The cylinder was constructed using 4 panels. One on the top, another on the back and two lateral panels. One of the more interesting features in this bag was (and is) that the compartments on the back are open and connected to the compartment in the lateral bands.

The "half moon" hood, developed in the Shocking Blue concept, was adapted to the Odin in 2003. This hood offers maximum insulation to the very extreme forehead and the incorporated static draw cord system offers ultimate precision. The draft collar is a 3D development. It is anatomical in the sense that it compensates for the different lengths needed to protect the shoulders, and at the same time has less width on the neck and on the throat.

Now we are getting to the point of how a technical high altitude expedition bag should be: A bag of volume (offering a possibility of layering), side-raised compartments (offering optimal side insulation), 27 straight H box wall compartments (optimal down fixation/instantly operational), a total weight of 64.7oz/1836g, easily capable of withstanding negative forty (F and C). And finally an unbelievable compressibility that will decompress within minutes once removed from the compression bag. (Speed is safety!)

The Odin is a well-proven Valandre expedition bag
