Sleeping in a wet or damp sleeping bag is a miserable experience. A waterproof sleeping bag is essential on boats where condensation plus the ever-high risk of a soaking from an open hatch, wet foulies or a wet sail brought down below after a sail change are ever present dangers!
The waterproof-breathable outer layer of an Ocean Sleepwear Sleeping Bag made from 4oz Exeat is essential both for keeping water out and allowing your body’s own water-vapour to transpire. The inner layers made from fibre-pile are equally warm when wet and feel immediately warm to the touch. Being a fabric rather than a filling and non-absorbant fibre-pile dries quickly.
Fast and smooth running No10 non-lock coil zips provide a quick entry and exit. The zips are placed centrally perfect for every bunk and whether sailing on port or starboard tacks. Zips open at both head and foot for those who like air to their feet.
The generously cut “mummy-shape” is perfect for getting comfortable in a big sea and provides a hood to protect your head.
All our sleeping bags have a rolling strap so they can be rolled up and secured neatly when not in use keeping out both rogue water and damp! There is also a hanging stap for airing on-deck.
While salt water environments are notoriously harsh an Ocean Sleepwear Sleeping bag can be expected to have a very long life with some simple maintenance and care.
