How the Unique DownWool® Insulation Works

The natural high-end DownWool Insulation is a blend of 70% high-quality RDS-certified down, which provides high insulation, and 30% wool from the Alpine region, which acts like a lightweight natural air conditioner. The combination is perfect. Nothing insulates as well as high-quality down. The 30% wool content absorbs any moisture that arises and thus keeps the down naturally drier. Down has a very high insulating capacity at a low weight.

 

However, down only insulates as long as it is dry and fluffy. With increasing humidity, the fine branching of the down collapses, which considerably reduces the insulating effect of the down. For this reason, the down is often treated with water-repellent agents. With DownWool, this is made unnecessary by adding the wool content. Wool can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture without losing its insulating effect. Furthermore, wool is very temperature regulating and creates a pleasant microclimate in a natural way.

 

The result is a unique sleeping climate, which means that the temperature range in which you feel comfortable and sleep well in a DownWool sleeping bag is particularly wide. This makes DownWool sleeping bags popular all-rounders.

DownWool® Is the Solution to Your Sleeping Bag Search

The innovative insulation combines the advantages of both natural materials, down and wool.

 

No more sweating or freezing. You feel dry and warm in a jacket or sleeping bag. Even if you start to sweat, the wool balances the temperature and moisture and stabilizes the down. A pure down jacket will overheat you during activities and is no longer insulating when wet. And thanks to our curved zipper, you'll never have sweaty feet in your sleeping bag again, because you can open the bottom and put your feet on the sleeping bag.


You regenerate much faster while you sleep with the support of wool. Because thanks to the unique effectiveness of the DownWool® insulation, your body can save itself some of the energy-consuming work of regulating body temperature.


DownWool is made in Germany and machine washable at 30°C. This means you can look forward to a long-lasting and straightforward product.

RDS Certified Down

Down and feathers impress with their unbeatable properties; they store heat, are breathable, light and durable.


Grüezi bag only uses the highest quality down for its sleeping bags and jackets, so that our products provide cozy warmth for many years.

 

This down is purchased and obtained sustainably and responsibly. Because Grüezi bag only uses RDS-certified down and feathers.

OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 Certification

The Grüezi bag sleeping bags have the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certificate for sustainable textile production.

 

When using sleeping bags, the skin has a lot of contact with the sleeping bag materials. That's why textile safety is important to us. Certification according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® offers the security that our Grüezi bag sleeping bags are products that are harmless to health or are unproblematic and skin-friendly.
