Winterlite +5°F is an excellent choice for harsh-weather environments and demanding adventures in cold temperatures, such as mountaineering and ski touring. For cold sleepers, Winterlite is a good choice for all but the warmest summer trips. Its NEOVENT-S outer shell is water-repellent, breathable, windproof and lightweight - necessary attributes in circumstances where moisture is difficult to avoid (condensation in tents, drippy snow caves, cold-weather tarp camping).
EXPED's tuck-stitch seam technology enhances the durability of external seams while also improving their moisture resistance. Winterlite includes an extra-warm, adjustable draft collar, which puts extra insulation around the neck and substantially reduces warm air being pumped out when moving within the bag. EXPED'S exclusive 3-D footbox is constructed with 11 individual chambers, effectively trapping heat and ensuring feet don’t push through the down insulation and contact cold air. The newly developed, anti-snag webbing sewn along the length of the zipper eliminates zipper sliders catching on lightweight fabric. EXPED’s differential cut ensures the down insulation’s maximum loft by precisely downsizing the inner lining relative to the outer shell - for each size. Shoulder width is also adapted across the bag sizes for correct fit. 800 fill-power, RDS-certified goose down ensures a high level of loft, warmth and longevity of the insulation.
Winterlite's combination of features and materials are finely tuned for use in less than ideal outdoor environments and circumstances.
