Sierra Designs Nahche +0 Sleeping Bag

Sierra Designs Nahche +0 Sleeping Bag – Go green with this eco friendly sleeping bag.
It seems everything is going green these day. Why should sleeping bags be any different? Not that I am complaining by any means, it’s just crazy how just about everything under the sun can be made in a more environmentally friendly manner. The Sierra Designs Nahche +0 Sleeping Bag is a prime example of this. Not only is it an example of how things can be made better, but it also shows us that green products are just as good, if not better, than their counterparts.

So, just how green is the Sierra Designs Nahche +0 Sleeping Bag you ask? Well to start it off, the Sierra Designs Nahche +0 Sleeping Bags PrimaLoft isulation is made from a collection of recycled textiles and PET bottles. The shell fabric on the outside is aslo made with recycled EcoSensor fabric. but, thats not all. The Cocona lining is made from activated carbon that comes from coconut shells.

Enough with the eco friendly production methods of the Sierra Designs Nahche +0 Sleeping Bag though. What about its features? Well, remember that Cocona lining I just talked about? It is pretty amazing. It works to not only insulate the bag, but improves a vast array of other things such as odor absorption, moisture wicking, breathability, and more.

The quick & dirty:

Seat-of-the-pants rating: 9 out of 10
Im really inspired by the Sierra Designs Nahche +0 Sleeping Bag. It is eco friendly, filled with awesome technology, four seasons, and built tough. I hope that other in the outdoor industry will look at some of the technology used here and work on implementing it into their own products.
