Nemo's Kayu 30 Down Sleeping Bag is a high quality minimalist bag with some unique and useful features.
The men's Kayu™ ultralight down mummy bag, with premium packable 800FP down and aggressive, thermally-efficient patterning, is the new pinnacle bag for ultralight adventures. With careful attention to tailoring of each curve for efficiency and comfort, the contoured hood, shaped footbox, and body-mapped tapered core are designed for ideal fit with no excess or wasted space.
Premium 800 FP down is hydrophobic, PFC-free, and 100% Responsible Down Standard (RDS) certified for traceability and humane treatment throughout the supply chain. Other features include Thermo Gills™ provide temperature regulation, a waterproof/breathable footbox and hood to protect you head to toe from tent wall condensation, and a full-length YKK no-snag zipper.
Pairs with the women's Aya™.
Nemo's Kayu 30 Down Sleeping Bag has a few special features despite its light-weight minimalist credentials. Premium and responsibly sourced 800 hydrophobic fill power down gives an admirable warmth to weight ratio. A well thought out baffle along the nearly full length zip prevents heat loss.
A unique feature of this bag is the 'Thermo Gills' which are a pair of zips on the front of the bag allowing you vent a bit of heat out of the bag. It would probably be a bit tricky to find the zips in the dark but I'm sure practice would make perfect. Another excellent feature is the use of a waterproof material on the hood and footbox, the areas where you are most likely to get damp.
The bag is high quality throughout with quite a slim mummy fit so could be quite constricted for broad users.
