Brigantes Presents – High Angle Solution – Yeti Fusion Dry 1700+

Wednesday, November 14th, 2018

Getting good quality sleep in any environment is exceptionally important.  The standard issue sleeping bags tend to fall well short of what can be achieved and are normally much heavier and bulkier than what is available of the shelf.

Yeti produces sleeping bags that sit right at the top of the pile and you can’t really get much better than the Yeti Fusion Dry 1700+ for operating in the frozen north.

Fusion Dry 1700+ is an ultra warm (comfort -23 Degrees Celcius) heavy weight rugged down sleeping bag constructed for extreme use in rough arctic or mountainous conditions. The outer casing is made from extra durable shell fabric that has enhanced water repelling function as well as being highly breathable. The down filling is Yetis trademark dry down with a coating that makes the individual down fibres water repellent and quicker drying – without compromising the insulation power. The Fusion Dry 1700+ has an internal collar and freezing puff to hold the hot air inside the bag where you need it and both H- and S-Box construction with a triple layered integrated foot box for extra protection of the extremities. The Fusion Dry 1700 is made with one purpose in mind: provide a durable and ultra warm bag for the most extreme adventure. Yes

Its durability, stability, simplicity and roomy interior that made it popular in the civilian world are the same properties that make perfect for the military user. Being able to increase strength by using threading two 10mm poles into each pole sleeve, mean it can deal with the worst weather and wind.

The sand, nearer a coyote or tan, colour option means the tent can be easily used in a variety of environments. For the Arctic, the tent can be used in conjunction with the size specific multi-spectral camouflage nets from Saab Barracuda. The combination of the strong tent and the advanced, lightweight camouflage net combine to provide the military user with a reliable, concealed shelter, in the most challenging environments.

Brigantes Presents – High Angled Solutions – Exped 9xp Sleeping Mat

Wednesday, October 31st, 2018

Sleeping mats have moved a long way from the closed cell foam mats that are still in use in some units. Whilst light and cheap, they take up space and don’t insulate the individual, allowing the cold to penetrate up through the ground and chill the user. The initial response to being colder than expected, is upgrade to warmer, bulkier sleeping bags. This often doesn’t give the expected results, as the insulation under the user is compressed and doesn’t insulate as efficiently.

The answer is to move to a more advanced sleeping mat. Enter the Downmat XP 9, the revolutionary DownMat for extreme temperatures!

The Downmat XP 9 is exceedingly comfortable, extremely warm and packable! This enables the user to carry a smaller, lighter bag. Sleep warm and comfortable, recover and be ready for what lies ahead.
