More Top Tips
  • Salt is corrosive. Take care particularly with metal zippers rinsing with fresh water after exposure to salty environment
  • Always fully dry your Ocean Sleepwear sleeping bag at the end of each trip.
  • When joining the fibrepile insulating layers to the outer waterproof breathable shell, start the process by matching the velcro at the head of the sleeping bag, this will make a neater job, avoid any bunching and make a more uniform join
  • When rolling-up your Ocean Sleepwear Sleeping Bag, first fold in the open top of the sleeping bag, leaving no fibrepile from the inner bags exposed, then roll from the bottom towards the top and secure with the strap. This will give the maximum protection from rogue water!
  • To get the longest life from your sleeping bag, it is much better to store it loosely folded – not crammed into its stuffsac.
