The Dark Star is the warmest
synthetic sleeping bag made by The North Face. Designed specifically for harsh,
wet, sub-zero conditions it is no wonder that this is their top selling bag in
Alaska. The Dark Star is insulated with Polarguard® Delta, the industry leader
in strength, durability and loft. With a comfort rating down to -40°F this
insulation remains surprisingly compressible and lightweight. The Dark Star will
keep you warm on the north face of any mountain.
While carrying this bag you are
sure to face challenges and abrasions during the day, but come nightfall and
your body will experience the luxury of the Silken lining. Strong enough to
prevent synthetic fibers from breaking through and into the bag, this Silken
liner is soft and breathable while helping to transfer heat evenly. Cold spots
are a thing of the past thanks to the overlapping shingle construction, which
distributes the insulation evenly throughout the bag. Once things start heating
up you can rest assured knowing the warmth will stay in the bag with the help of
the adjustable draft collar and full-length draft tube. The flat cord for hood
adjustment and shock cord for chest adjustment will keep the body snug
throughout the night.
If you can’t get yourself out
of the bag for your morning cup of coffee you can feel safe hopping out of the
tent and into the kitchen due to the Dark Star’s BottomLine taffeta. This tough
bottom shell gives protection on a variety of surfaces. In addition, the
Firestorm™ top shell fabric is durable and water resistant. Should that coffee
run through you the easy-grab pull- tabs and cloth-lined zipper columns make for
an easy getaway.
The Dark Star has everything
needed for the serious mountaineer including an oversized, head level watch
pocket big enough for an altimeter watch and functional enough to make sure you
reach the summit before the turn around time.
