If you are looking for a quality kids sleeping bag that can be used in Spring/Autumn as well as summer this is the bag for you! Endorsed by the Duke of Edinburgh awards this 2-3 season sleeping bag has the same technical features found on a lot of adult sleeping bags including 2 way autolocking zips, adjustable shoulder baffle to keep the heat in, insulated zip baffle with anti-catch piping which stops the zip from catching and a 4 way compression stuff sack for shrinking it down when you don’t need it.
The outer shell of this bag features Vango’s Polair® Hex Shell which is a lightweight and durable 210T polyester based fabric with a hexagonal embossed design to give a technical look. The inner shell is made from 100% Polyester 190T Brushed Fabric which has a cotton like feel for added comfort. A recent addition to this range is Vango’s new Alpha insulation which is a single-hole siliconized hollow fibre designed to compress down more than traditional hollowfibre fillings and has the added benefit of keeping its thermal performance even when wet.
Premium Dual Layer Construction
All of the Nitestar Range including this Junior model feature dual layer construction which is a premium manufacturing technique which creates a more thermally efficient sleeping bag. Rather than using a single layer of insulation which is sewn onto the outside shell of the bag, dual layer construction uses two layers of insulation in the bag which are sewn into the inner and outer shells. The Nitestar Junior utilizes two 125g/m² layers of Vango’s Alpha insulation.
By offsetting the sewing patterns this method overcomes the cool spots and thermal leak you can get where the stitching squeezes the insulation together stopping it from trapping air and keeping the user warm. An added benefit is the creation of an additional layer of air between the two layers of insulation creating more warmth without adding any bulk when packed away.
Features to Keep Your Kids Warm
The bag is filled with Vango’s premium Alpha insulation which is designed to give a great level of loft whilst packing down smaller than fillings used in previous models. It also performs even when wet making it ideal for use in Autumn and Winter without worrying about a decrease in performance should the weather turn. The bag also features an insulated shoulder baffle and zip baffle so it traps the warm air around your child’s body and stops it escaping from out of the top of the sleeping bag. The 3D hood is constructed to fit more closely around their head reducing heat loss and providing a more comfortable sleep as the hood turns with them in the night.
