“In 2019, our sleeping bag went on a 3000 km epic adventure with Peter Van Geit. He completed a 4-month alpine-style minimalist ultra hike across 120 passes in remote western Himalayas and had a very positive experience in using the Blue Bolt solo quilt. Super light bivy outer shell: 10D ripstop outer shell that is durable, windproof and incredibly water-resistant. Fancy sleeping out the open under the clear skies or a tarp? You can, without worrying about feeling the wind chill or getting your bag wet.”
If the Blue Bolt campaign successfully raises its required pledge goal and fullfilment progresses smoothly, worldwide shipping is expected to take place sometime around November 2021. To learn more about the Blue Bolt sleeping bag project play the promotional video below.
