Grüezi bag Biopod HYBRID WOOL/DOWN

Nature’s know-how for a comfortable climate
and restorable sleep!

INNOVATION: DOWN WITHOUT ANY CHAMBERS OR
SEAMS MIXED WITH WOOL

The BIOPOD HYBRID WOOL/DOWN is the result of
decades of experience. What is particularly
important for us is the climate. Only if you
sleep well, you will be fit and rested the
next morning. Here the natural
air-conditioning effect of wool comes into
play. In addition to providing insulation
with wool, we have used infrared cameras to
find out which parts of the body need more
insulation. In these areas we have applied
the newly developed solid down. Down often
does not stay in one part of the sleeping
bag, so that thermal bridges can be created
by shifting. With solid down the down,
similar to a fleece, is always kept fixed in
one place – without any chambers or seams! To
keep the body warm in an optimal way without
the risk of heat accumulation, solid down was
only applied in some parts. In the other
areas, wool and microfibre are used. On the
bottom side, where there is the whole weight
of the sleeper, the microfibre has the
function of providing support and drying
quickly. By applying the materials exactly in
the places where they are needed, an ideal
climate with excellent insulation is created.

Of course we have also worked on the cut of
the sleeping bag. By the new position of the
zipper ventilation has been substantially
improved and getting into the sleeping bag
made much easier. The pillow pocket is
another very convenient feature: just put a
jacket in and you have a pillow. AND A
COMPLET NEW DESIGN OF SLEEPING BAG "nobel and
functional"
