Ocean Sleepwear

Guy Salter Ericsson 4 Volvo Ocean Race

Ocean Sleepwear waterproof and warm marine sleeping systems suitable for wet conditions, anywhere in the world.

Our original Ocean Sleepwear Sleeping Bag is THE tough all-rounder. Its thick fibre-pile layers provide the warmth required in the Southern Ocean, stripped out the sleeping bag still performs in the Tropics. The waterproof shell keeps out condensation, water from leaky hatches, passing wet sails and rogue seawater that always and predictably finds its way to your bunk! This is the sleeping bag of choice for Round the World Ocean Racing.

Our Volvo Ocean Race Bag is the definitive no-compromise warm bag. If you a looking for a big bag, this is it. Rectangular in shape with a large overlap style flap to close, it is designed for getting right down into, but with 4 removable layers, “burstable” zips and fold out flat shape it is flexible too. Definitely not the bag for those traveling light!

Completing the line up of Ocean Sleepwear specialist marine sleeping systems we have Ocean Rugs the choice of many solo-racing nano-nappers with no time for sleeping bags.

Volvo Ocean Race Sleeping Bag

Volvo Ocean Race Sleeping Bag

This is the latest VOR Sleeping bag. Originally developed for the 2005/06 Volvo Ocean Race to give crew the very best chance of getting rest and sleep in the extreme conditions that is high performance yacht racing. Then both ABN Amro boats had summer and winter versions of the new bag. The winter VOR bag consisted of 3 fibre-pile layers and a waterproof outer. The summer version consisted of a single micro-fleece layer and a waterproof outer. The crews chose to take the sleeping bag appropriate to each leg. However, the route of the 2008/09 Volvo Ocean Race provided a different challenge. This time the coldest Southern Ocean leg was also the hottest. One bag had to work in all temperature and humidity ranges. One bag had to work from hot to cold and then back to hot in the same leg and of course, one bag had to work in both wet and very wet conditions! This is THE BIG, arguably the ultimate, waterproof sleeping for sailors!
