A light weight expedition, alpine climbing, and trekking sleeping bag. Valandre has introduced a three-season sleeping bag that Valandre has sleeping down to 5° F: the Bloody Mary.
Featuring Valandre's Tubular Bell construction, an interchangeable collar system, and the world's best French Fat Grey Goose down, the Bloody Mary will take you across three seasons in amazing comfort. At the heart of the Bloody Mary is an interchangeable collar system. Three different levels of thermal protection are a zipper pull away. When the temperature is dropping fast, zip in the heaviest of the collars and feel the snug warmth that is sealed in the main body section. As conditions lighten, zip out the heavy collar and put in the mid-weight collar. This collar rests gently on your neck, providing some ventilation while holding most of your warmth in the bag. And finally, as summer is in full swing, don't get a lighter bag, just leave the collars at home, open the main zipper for full ventilation, and "Et voila"! Welcome to the extremely flexible comfort zone.
If the collar system is the heart of the Bloody Mary, the French Fat Grey Goose down is the muscle. Valandre uses only down from the French Fat Grey Goose, a bird capable of migrating at 33,000 feet (10.000m) in -60 degrees F (-50 degrees C) temperatures for days on end. The down is harvested right before the traditional migration time, when it is fresh, clean and at its plumpest. Then, Valandre selects only the lightest down and fills each compartment with just the right amount.
The foundation of all Valandre's sleeping bags is our Tubular Bell construction method. Each Bloody Mary is made from 83 individually cut panels and baffles tailored to fit perfectly around the human body. And when these compartments are filled with the French Fat Grey Goose down, they actually lift off your body as the bag warms up.
This isn't just a container for the down, it is a technological marvel with all components working in harmony to provide the best warmth-to-weight ratio in the industry with surprising flexibility.
