Sleeping Bag Floating on Water of the Week.. No ratings yet.

How’s about this for confidence in your product? 

Luis Brown, an Envornmental Consultant at Nikwax demonstrated this by floating across a lake in East Sussex with a Nixwax Hydrophobic Down™ filled sleeping bag. They demonstrated that it’s a high performing hydrophobic solutiuon as well as also being an environmentally friendly one.

Nikwax do however stress that this isn’t a literal example of what should be done with the product, though we admit that we’d be quite tempted to give this a go!

We reckon this would be just about right for a typical wild camp in Snowdonia, on a dry weekend!
