Winter Camping Gear 2009

via nunatakusa
The Raku features warm sleeves and a deep hood plus an openable foot box, making it a fully functional hybrid between an insulated down suit and a 3 season sleeping bag. From sitting around the dinner pots to lying in the tent is merely two steps apart. No more chilly transitions between the cozy bag and mandatory visits to the bathroom. Setting up tent, cooking, doing repair jobs, organizing food and gear, sleeping, all is possible wearing the Raku. Life in camp has forever been elevated to an unheard level of comfort and protection against the elements. The sleeves on the fully baffled Raku can be pulled inside to create a draft collar for greater warmth while sleeping. Around camp the elastic shock-corded foot opening allows for unparalleled mobility and access. The two way front zipper allows you to sleep in your climbing harness without un-roping. For ultralight travel in cold conditions this bag eliminates redundant layers while providing complete warmth. We also offer the Raku with numerous custom options, including differentially cut 0 and -30 degree F versions. The foot box in the open mode, allowing you to vent effectively or walk around. If you pull the bag up and cinch the foot box draw-cord on the waist you have unrestricted mobility.
