Grüezi Bag says: 

What sets this sleeping bag apart is its innovative insulation. You'll quickly notice the difference in a DownWool® sleeping bag. It keeps you from getting too hot or too cold and maintains a dry body climate while balancing temperature fluctuations. This is achieved through the innovative blend of natural materials, down, and wool. This combination is patented and acts as a lightweight, natural air conditioning system. DownWool® sleeping bags from Grüezi bag® offer significant advantages over pure down or synthetic sleeping bags:

· Nothing insulates as effectively as high-quality down, with its high insulation power and minimal weight.

· However, down only insulates when it's dry and fluffy. When it gets wet, the fine branching of the down collapses, causing it to clump and significantly reducing its insulating ability. To make down water-resistant, chemical treatments are often used. DownWool® eliminates the need for these treatments by incorporating wool, which naturally keeps the down drier, preserving its insulating properties.

· Wool can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture through its capillaries and release it outside in a controlled manner, preventing evaporative cooling. This not only regulates moisture effectively but also body temperature. Even when damp, wool retains its insulating properties, which no other material can match. Thus, wool naturally creates a pleasantly comfortable microclimate due to its unique climate-regulating properties. Additionally, wool neutralizes unpleasant sweat odors.

· Thanks to the unique properties of DownWool® insulation, your body can save energy by regulating temperature. The saved energy is available for recovery during sleep.

· The result is excellent insulation and a wide temperature range where you feel comfortable and can sleep well. This makes DownWool® sleeping bags from Grüezi bag® popular all-rounders.

Our Verdict

The Grüezi Bag Biopod DownWool Extreme Light Sleeping Bag stands out with its innovative DownWool insulation that combines the excellent warmth and low weight of down with the moisture-wicking and temperature-regulating properties of wool. This patented blend allows the sleeping bag to maintain a comfortable microclimate, preventing you from getting too hot or too cold.

One of the key advantages is that the wool helps keep the down drier and fluffier, preserving its insulating ability even when wet conditions that would normally cause down to clump and lose warmth. The wool can absorb moisture and release it, while still retaining insulation. This natural moisture management eliminates the need for chemical treatments on the down.

The sleeping bag features smart design elements like an adjustable hood, interior pocket, two-way auto-locking zipper, and foot ventilation system. The outer shell is made from a soft, downproof recycled nylon treated to be water-repellent without toxic PFCs.
