The thermo fleece layers are arranged in a shingle construction overlapping up to three times for maximum insulation.

Outer and inner shells are stitched directly to each other. These chambers contain the down.

Outer and inner shells are connected by straight baffles. The rectangular chambers are filled with down, which can expand to full loft potential.

Opposing diagonal trapezoid pockets and additional chambers on the side prevent the down from shifting. By avoiding cold spots, this construction can guarantee fantastic warmth insulation.

Elastic seam construction allows a comfortable, body-hugging fit without feeling restricted. Thus the bag warms up quicker and still offers fantastic freedom of movement for a good night's sleep.

THE NEXT STEP IN ANIMAL WELFARE:

82 SLEEPING BAG

CERTIFIED DOWN!

Procurement Manager Parry Cheng is very happy with the quality of the feathers; Chaozhuo district, province Guandong, China

Environmental and animal welfare have always been a priority at Deuter – and that includes ensuring animals are treated humanely. We support, for example, the Fur Free Retailer initiative, which offers support for retailers who have committed to a non-fur policy. For sleeping bags we mainly use synthetic fibres – but sometimes it just has to be down. This natural product still beats synthetic material when it comes to insulating properties and warmth-weight-ratio. In extreme conditions, e.g. on expeditions, alpinists depend on the superior quality of down. We therefore use down and feather filling in our sleeping bag ranges Neosphere and Astro Exp. This amounts to approximately 16 % of our sleeping bag production volume. No matter how small the quantity: we strongly care about animal welfare. We strictly condemn live-plucking, the harvesting of down from live geese and duck. This causes the birds considerable stress and pain – if they are not plucked during moulting, when they shed their feathers naturally to grow new ones and can be removed with minimal force. In practice the individual moulting cycles are hardly ever considered and thus live-plucking cannot guarantee painless down harvesting. We also condemn force-feeding for the production of foie gras. The birds are painfully force-fed with a feeding tube to specially fatten their livers. For a long time we’ve been using exclusively down gained as a by-product of the Chinese poultry industry. And foie gras is not very common in China, too. Our supplier gets the down from slaughterhouses, where it is obtained from dead animals. Those are small scale facilities which work for local restaurants and the ducks and geese are delivered straight to the custom-

ers. Feather and down are collected as by-products, they are cleaned and dried. Our Taiwanese partner who is producing our sleeping bags in China is also a bluesign® system partner and therefore follows the strictest environmental regulations. However, we also foster the direct relationship with down suppliers to ensure adequate animal treatment and we’ve visited several goose and duck farms in China.

WE NOW TOOK AN IMPORTANT NEXT STEP: SINCE JUNE 2015 WE ARE EXCLUSIVELY USING CERTIFIED DOWN. AN INDEPENDENT INSTITUTION DOCUMENTS AND CONTROLS OUR PRO-DUCTS REGULARLY. It ensures the traceability of the entire production and supply chain, from the hatcheries to the cleaned down to the sleeping bag in the shop. Transparency is top priority. When all phases of the sleeping bag production fulfil the animal welfare standards, the product receives the RDS certificate (Responsible Down Standard). For more information and details on the standards please visit: www.textileexchange.org. We are very happy to have taken this step.
