Mont Zero

Ultralight: Weighing in at an astonishing 294 grams total, the Mont Zero Ultralight is the lightest full-size sleeping bag in the world. You can pack this bag down into the size of a 1L Nalgene bottle. This two season bag uses Anti-Gravity Nylon, a durable but extremely lightweight material.

Superlight: A two to three season sleeping bag that utilises the same Anti-Gravity Nylon as its Ultralight sister. This version remains very light, equalling just 417 grams. An additional contoured hood will keep you warm in colder climates, without taking up pack space.

Running the Lavaredo Ultra Trail Run in Italy

The Dolomites has been described as one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. Its beauty is matched by the intensity of the 120km ultra marathon held there annually.

Bogong Sponsored Athlete Matt Crehan recalls his experience of running the La Sportiva Lavaredo Ultra Trail race. This is a Bogong Blog about the perseverance and passion of an ultra-marathoner competing in the breaktaking but brutal Dolomites. Check it out here.

A full-service solutions system for the responsible manufacturing and use of sustainable textiles.

What is bluesign®?

bluesign® was founded in 2000 by a Swiss group called bluesign® technologies to set a new industry standard for textile manufacturing and reducing environmental impact. They independently verify materials used in apparel and gear, equipping brands, manufacturers and chemical suppliers with sustainable solutions to the standard manufacturing mentality. Furthermore, bluesign® fosters safer work environments for workers. A bluesign® certification means you, the buyer, can trust the product to be environmentally and people conscious.

How does bluesign® work?

Through on-site assessments, bluesign® builds an understanding of a product’s environmental and chemical effects. An action plan is set out to ultimately achieve responsible production, therefore certifying a product.

When certified, you can be sure that your purchase:

  • Holds the highest degree of safety for the workers, planet and consumer,
  • Is manufactured with lowest possible impact on people and the environment,
  • Uses resources responsibly.

  • What to look out for at Bogong?

    bluesign® originated in Europe, although the certification is used by brands the world over. When buying in-store, have a look at the product sign. Listed will be the bluesign® certification. If shopping online, the bluesign® certification will be included in the description of the product, below the images.
