The hangover cure for your multi-day adventures.
When sores start settling in on your third day out in the wilderness, it's important to have a cozy sleeping bag to see you through the nights with restful recovery. So wrap yourself up in the Valandre Expedition Bloody Mary 21-Degree Down Sleeping Bag and sleep throughout the night whether you're on a portaledge in Yosemite or trekking across the continent. Stuffed with fine, ultralight 850+ fill down, this three-season bag is rated to keep you comfortable when the temperatures dip below freezing. Nylon ripstop makes the Bloody Mary lightweight and durable so you'll love taking it with you up vertical faces and across treacherous treks. The fabric is coated with DWR along with its polyester ripstop lining, so you'll stay dry while you count sheep.
The most innovative feature of the Bloody Mary has to be the hood and draft collar system. A static drawcord integrated in the hood allows you to tighten or loosen the bag's opening so you get as little or as much air as you like. The Bloody Mary comes with two interchangeable draft collars that offer three different levels of thermal protection only a zipper pull away. When temps drop fast, zip on the heaviest collar for snugged up warmth. When weather warms up, stash the heavy collar and whip out the bag's mid-weight collar for toasty comfort. Once summer arrives, leave the collars at home and let the warm winds soothe your exhausted body.

Valandre Bloody Mary Sleeping Bag
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is a great cold weather bag! When purchasing, it was a trade off between this bag and an equivalent bag from WM. It was the european rating and better value/cost that sold me. I didn't want to pay an extra $200 for Gortex. I figured the cost difference could get me an ultra-light summer bag as well. I used this bag in approx. -10C on Mount Shasta and on Whitney while wearing a silk base layer and a synthetic second layer. I was quite warm all night and had to open the bag several times to let heat out. Bag fluffs up really well. I'm very happy with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone.
