Eco Finish: VAUDE products bearing the Eco Finish been waterproofed in an environmentally-friendly way without fluorocarbons (PFC). PFCs are part of a group of chemical compounds which are used to waterproof the outer layer of many outdoor products. They have come under criticism for being non-biodegradable, bioaccumulative and toxic, and suspected of being harmful to health. VAUDE has made a clear commitment to completely renouncing PFCs.

2-Layer Construction: This type of construction involves two layers of lining. One layer is sewn to the outer shell and another layer is sewn to the inner lining. These two layers are sewn together with offset stitching to prevent cold spots,
ensuring optimal thermal insulation.
Sensofil High Loft has a 3-layer construction that offers
superior insulation. It is low maintenance, lightweight and
retains its outstanding insulation values even when damp making it an ideal choice when heading out into areas in which condensation can become a problem. As the name implies, Sensofil High Loft fibers have a greater loft than previous Sensofil fibers. A special processing has been applied to make them extremely soft and offer excellent sleeping comfort. The Sensofil High Loft microfibers in the inner fiber layer also serve to reflect body heat that is then trapped and stored in the inner fiber layer next to the body. The 3-layer construction also ensures that moisture vapor is quickly transported outward away from the body.
Mummy form: The best-known sleeping bag shape. The mummy form is characterised by its conical form: the sleeping bags
become narrower towards the feet. The body-hugging cut minimises the air that needs to be warmed and is therefore very heat efficient. The cut also means that less material is used than for other shapes. That makes the sleeping bag lighter than other forms with a comparable heat performance, as well as being more compressible.
Synthetic sleeping bags offer a better insulation in wet conditions than down feather sleeping bags. It has easier demands on care and storage. The opposite is a higher weight and bigger pack size to reach identical insulation values of down feather sleeping bags.
Anatomic Hood: Anatomical formed hood.
Hood Drawcord: Drawcord in the hood for a better fit.
2 Way Zip: Two-way zipper
Compression Packsack: Packsack with compression straps.
