Snugpak – Quart System

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015

QuartSystem-Top

The Quart System is the latest sleep system from Snugpak. Combining the Softie 3 Merlin and the TS-1 Liner and Bivvi Bag, it functions as a one or two season sleeping bag, capable of comfort in temperatures from 32°F to 23°F.

The Quart System features a waterproof housing built into the compression stuff sack. This keeps the bivvi separate after use in case it is wet, keeping the sleeping bag and liner dry. The Quart System weighs only 58oz and compresses down to a 7″ x 11″ pack size.

Snugpak Adds MultiCam

Wednesday, December 29th, 2010

Considering the British military adopted a MultiCam derivative camouflage dubbed Multi Terrain Pattern, it’s no wonder MultiCam is becoming a big hit with UK manufacturers. Considering the US Army and Air Force have also adopted MultiCam for operations in Afghanistan under the name of OCP and that the Australians have followed suit, it’s quite simply good business. Oddly enough, MultiCam has done more to unite the English speaking militaries than anything since the adoption of 5.56mm. It seems that only Canada is the odd fellow in this one.

But I digress. UK manufacturer Snugpak has begun to introduce clothing in the MultiCam pattern. Long popular with UK and Allied Soldiers, Snugpak’s loft insulation garments compress well. The Sleeka has begun to show up for sale in a reversible MultiCam to Tan variant. Look for more garments and availability in the US soon.
