Crux Torpedo 500
© Crux, Feb 2008
Crux is breaking new ground with its new range of sleeping bags that at last give alpinists and mountaineers the first truly waterproof, breathable lightweight shelled designs.

The Torpedoes solve an enduring problem; how to keep down dry within a completely waterproof, very breathable shell. The bags use eVent shell fabric giving unrivalled breathability with complete waterproof protection. Crux uses bonding techniques allowing them weld baffles and seams throughout, giving improved breathability and reduced weight. The Torpedoes are filled with the best down commercially available, 'diamond grade' goose down from Poland.

Three designs are initially available. The Torpedo 500 (£330) is rated to -10°C using 500g fill down, the Torpedo 700 (£395) rated to -20°C using 700g fill, and the Torpedo 900 (£450) rated to -28°C. Each model is available in three lengths – short, medium and long – with the middle length also available in left and right zip options.

Available mid-April.
