  • Description

    The Expansion sleeping bag range from Snugpak gets its name from the unique Elasticated Expander Panel (EEP) system which allows the user to regulate the internal temperature of the bag depending on the climate or for additional space for the user.

    The Expansion sleeping bags have a removable LED light attached in a pouch at the top of the hood – ideal for reading with a steady light or as a signal with the flashing SOS mode. With an adjustable length using the clip system this sleeping bag is also ideal for shorter individuals who want to optimise heat retention in colder climates.

    The Expansion 5 bag is the largest in the range and retains the tried and tested Softie® Original insulation – a synthetic filling which mimics the properties of down – but this will now be encased in a technical outer fabric, Paratex Micro. Tough, lightweight, highly windproof and water-repellent, it is exceptionally hard wearing and heavy duty, yet remains soft to the touch which makes it ideal for creating a comfortable and durable sleeping bag.

    "Big and Toasty"

    I love the expansion panel on my Softie sleeping bag, being slightly larger than average, the extra few centimetres give me room to breathe. So soft to lie on too and super compressible, the stuff sack isn't one of those that just about fits.
