Down Hugger 800 #1 | Montbell America

z_2321161_ogBy adopting a classic tailor’s trick and paring it with high grade materials MontBell has brought extreme comfort and thermal efficiency to the light weight backcountry enthusiast. We found that integrating a woven fabric “cut on the bias” and orienting the fabric’s warp and weft threads at 45 degrees to most major seam lines the sleeping bag becomes more fluid in nature. To create an even more comfortable system we utilize an elasticized thread in the stitch to create small “gathers” in the quilting. Through the combination of strategic seam orientation and the stretch provided by gathered quilting we offer unrivaled fit and comfort. These innovations allow the sleeping bag to move with you as you change positions throughout the night, drawing the 800 fill goose down closer to your body and eliminating drafty dead spaces. Keep body heat inside your sleeping bag, where it belongs.

Browning Camping, packs, tents, sleeping bags, furniture and air pads

Message from Dennis Brune, Owner of ALPS Mountaineering

Curious about what’s behind Browning Camping? Well, if you have a minute to read the next several paragraphs, I’ll try to give you some background. In 1993, I started ALPS Mountaineering, a small company located in rural east central Missouri, with the mission of “providing more gear for more people”. We offer performance oriented packs, tents, sleeping bags, furniture and air pads. All of our products are “consumer designed” for comfortable enjoyable trips that have tough, durable construction for a lifetime of use, and while the products are great, the prices are even better. I have been working in the outdoor industry since 1978 in a variety of design, sales, and marketing positions. A lot of my prior outdoor experience came from running the Kelty brand, which also marketed packs, tents and sleeping bags. In 1994, Brian, the oldest of our 3 children, was about to enter middle school, so I left Kelty because I wanted to have a more flexible schedule to allow me to be more involved in my family’s activities.
