Don’t be mislad by the Shocking Blues muted "Baby Blue" color. Its name comes from the incredible technological and design innovations built in the bag
This "Midnight Special" was developed in the mountain village of Belcaire in the French Pyrenees, the Shocking Blue revolutionized sleeping bag designs, when launched at the OR in Salt Lake City in 2001.
The Shocking Blue is designed to be in use in high altitude in combination with the Combi full suit. (This offers the possibility of some serious layering) Today the 48.6oz (1380g) Shocking Blue is becoming a "standard bag" in the C4 and C5 camps.
But, this also places the bag, as certainly one of the best performing down bags in the 4 season category, for winter camping in the Rocky Mountains or any place else, where you start your day by de-freezing your boots.
