Product details – Passion One
The COMPANYON sleeping bag.
Outer material: LightyGram (RipStop Nylon)
THE TECHNOLOGY INSIDE
The Next to Nothing Technology means that: for all Companyon products we are using the lightest and most exclusive materials currently available. The down proof rip-stop nylon fabric weighs just 25 grammes per square metre. The secret of lightness is based on the 1,000 kilometres of yarn used in the fabric. This yarn has the size of a twentieth of a human hair, these 1,000 kilometres of yarn weigh only 140 grammes.
There are only five weaving machines in the world that can manufacture fabric that is so fine. All these machines can be found in the North of Japan. Each of them produces only 35 metres per day. It is only possible to produce about 1,000 kg of this crystal-down material each year.
For this reason the availability of Companyon sleeping bags and clothing is limited.
