    Detailed description

    The Valandre La Fayette is a high-performing, ultra lightweight sleeping bag with for use in the most extreme weather.

    Valandré's active involvement in high-altitude expeditions naturally required that the interior volume correspond to a use with the Combi. Experiences tell us that the most powerful bag in terms of weight / insulation ratio is a " Sarco without zip ". The only problem was not being able to incorporate a collar allowing total blockage of the air circulation. The technical solution of this equation was a zip, allowing just to go inside the La Fayette equipped with a Combi. Since the length of this zip was only 75cm, a twinning was excluded. To increase the comfort of use, the zip has been placed in the center, which is in perfect agreement with the most effective position when  it's really freezing and you are looking to move your lungs and your heart away from the cold soil by positioning yourself laterally.

    The centralization of the zip posed technical problems with regard to the thermal insulation behind the zip. The most effective technical solution without taking into consideration the issue of comfort was to place a Velcro strip vertically. The 2 velcro perfectly compressed create a barrier where the loss of hot air is slowed down. But the double advantage of this velcro zip is that it gathers the circumference of the inner cylinder and thus, leads to a distinct decrease in the risk of cold spots.

    Here, the spirit of the Tubular Bell finds its principles in total efficiency. La Fayette was also the first Valandré bag to introduce a system of collar concreted to the extreme. Named Marie-Antoinette by resemblance to the historical tool, we promise you that your neck is perfectly held in place leaving the heat escaping from the inside. The question of a maximum reduction of the air circulation inside the bag, which amounts to a loss of heat from the top, has been improved by the incorporation of a semi-elastic cord at the waist. The cumulated heat on the vital part of the bust is maintained in place despite the body movement between "30mn on the left, 30mn on the right". This survival technique requires a fetal positioning, which places pressure on the knee points with the risk that the down drove outwards during the night. To address this issue, we have developed a knee system which consists simply of fastening the down in 3 compartments of reduced size laterally closed and with an increase of the density of down.

    La Fayette from Valandré is an ultra-light sleeping bag which will allow you to take on the north face of Everest in Alpine style and without oxygen; If you are of course the German Ralf Dujomovits (XIV 8000) and the Austrian Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner (XIII 8000)!
