YKK × NANGA

NANGA x YKK parts which reduce snagging and catching

To reduce snagging and catching to the fabric, our sleeping bag installed specialized YKK parts as fasteners.
NANGA x YKK parts

When handling a sleeping bag made with the thinnest of fabrics, there is the fear that the fasteners might catch or snag, preventing the bag from opening or closing, or if deeply snagged, may even cause damage to the fabric. To reduce such problems, we installed specialized YKK parts as fasteners, which diminished the gaps which can cause snagging, and have led to the achievement of a reduction in fabric snagging and damage due to snagging of the fasteners. Furthermore, we utilized resin in our materials to make our parts more lightweight (1.6g) and added phosphorescent capabilities to make it easier to open and close in the dark.

Due to the concave shape in the upper portion of these specialized parts, the fasteners can guide the fabric to the center, reducing the probability of snagging.

With phosphorescent capabilities, these parts will glow in the dark, and help make fastening and opening much easier.

SOLID STRUCTURE

This sleeping bag features a new level of technology

This sleeping bag features a new level of technology, with a trapezoid box baffle structure and solid structure which maximizes the full potential of down, and allows stress-free and efficient heat retention no matter what position you sleep in. By narrowing the feet area, we have successfully reduced weight.

A distinguishing feature of this structure is that it prevents the down from bunching up, and allows for a reduction in weight. Because each of the boxes supports each other, the full loft potential of the down is maximized, and by reducing any diminished heat radiation through potential bunching, heat retention is efficiently distributed throughout the bag.

With both a shoulder warmer and draft tube, the entry of cold air is prevented. However, these features are available only in the trapezoid box quilt model.

During cold seasons it is especially important to keep the head area warm, and the three-dimensional hood envelops the head in a stress-free manner, and functionally retains heat. The fastener is positioned near the face for easy opening and closing, and operability has been improved as well.
