The opinion of Aventure Nordique
Snugpak's Softie Elite 4 is a sleeping bag with synthetic fiber insulation. It is part of the military and tactical range of the English brand. It is lined with the Softie polyester fiber designed by Snugpak. It is made with discontinuous superfine yarns to give a more random effect, some are curly, some are curly or left as they are. The random nature of the process results in a product that closely resembles the structure of natural insulation.
In addition to the synthetic fiber, the Reflectatherm metallized fabric reflects 15% of body heat to increase the insulation level of the sleeping bag. This breathable fabric is placed between the two inner and outer Paratex fabrics and is not in direct contact with the skin. These 100% polyester fabrics are strong, light, very windproof, water repellent and breathable (12 L / m² / 24h).
Regarding its design, the length and width of the sleeping bag are adjustable. The end can be folded on itself and clipped to shorten it. This allows a double insulation at the feet. For the width, the Softie Elite 4 has a side extension thanks to its double zipper. One on the outside gives the sleeping bag a width of 87.5 cm and one more on the inside for a width of 75 cm. This allows you to expand your sleeping bag if you have to sleep with bulky warm clothes on nights below -10°C, without being cramped.
Inside the sleeping bag, the footbox has been reinforced to allow you to sleep with your shoes to keep them warm or to leave them at the bottom. The collar is well dimensioned and the hood has a drawstring. A chest pocket is located inside the sleeping bag.
