From spring to autumn is the best season for trekking, biking, backpacking, and camping. The 3-season sleeping bag "Biopod DownWool Subzero" is the perfect companion for these activities

Grüezi Bag says: 

What makes this sleeping bag special is its innovative insulation. You'll quickly notice in a DownWool® sleeping bag 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 blend of natural materials, down, and wool. This combination is patented and works 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 well as high-quality down because down has a very high insulation performance with low weight.

· However, down only insulates 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. Chemical treatments are often used to make down water-repellent. DownWool® eliminates the need for this by adding wool: wool naturally keeps down drier, preserving its insulating effect.

· Wool can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture through its capillaries and then release it to the outside to avoid 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 wide temperature range in which you can feel comfortable and sleep well. This makes DownWool® sleeping bags from Grüezi bag® popular all-rounders.
