The "Biopod DownWool Ice" sleeping bag is the ideal companion for trekking, camping, and mountain tours down to freezing temperatures, or as a 3-season sleeping bag for those who get cold easily.

Grüezi Bag says: 

What sets this sleeping bag apart is its innovative insulation. In a DownWool® sleeping bag, you'll quickly notice that you won't feel too cold or too warm. It creates a dry body climate and evens out temperature fluctuations.

This is achieved through the innovative combination of natural materials, down, and wool. This patented combination acts like a lightweight and natural air conditioning system. The DownWool® sleeping bag from Grüezi bag® offers significant advantages over pure down or synthetic sleeping bags:

Nothing insulates as effectively as high-quality down because down has a very high insulation capacity with low weight.

· However, down insulates only when it's dry and fluffy. In increasing moisture, the fine branches of down collapse, causing it to clump and significantly reduce its insulating ability. Often, chemical treatments are used to make down water-repellent. DownWool® eliminates the need for this by adding wool, which naturally keeps down drier and thus preserves its insulating effect.

· Wool can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture through its capillaries and then release it to the outside, preventing evaporative cooling. This ensures effective moisture regulation and temperature control. Even when wet, wool retains its insulating properties like no other material. Wool naturally creates a comfortable microclimate due to its unique climate-balancing properties. Additionally, wool neutralizes unpleasant sweat odors.

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

The result is excellent insulation and a broad temperature range where you can feel comfortable and sleep well, making DownWool® sleeping bags from Grüezi bag® popular for various purposes.

Our Verdict

The Grüezi Bag Biopod DownWool Ice sleeping bag is a versatile and innovative bag designed for camping, trekking, and mountaineering in cold weather. Its DownWool insulation, a blend of down and wool, provides superior warmth when dry and effectively regulate temperature. This insulation prevents the down from clumping when moisture is present, thus maintaining its insulating capabilities.

The down offers exceptional warmth, while the wool wicks moisture away from the down clusters, preventing them from collapsing and losing loft. Wool can absorb up to 30% of its weight in vapour without feeling wet, keeping the down drier for sustained insulation, especially in humid environments or when using a bivi bag.

Grüezi bags areover stuffed with down, they also provide more internal space than traditional bags, allowing for comfortable movement and a cosy, warm experience.

At the same time, wool has inherent temperature-regulating abilities, as anyone who uses merino wool can attest. It can release absorbed moisture to prevent overheating and evaporative cooling of the body. This more comprehensive, comfortable temperature range makes you less likely to wake up shivering or sweating.

Beyond the insulation, the Grüezi bag® is meticulously designed. The adjustable contoured hood and collar prevent heat loss. An anti-snag zipper allows easy opening from inside or out, and the zip can be opened from the bottom as well as the top, which helps with ventilation. The pre-formed foot box gives your feet ample space.
