With a temperature comfort rated at -3°C, and extreme rated at -18°C, the Ice Breaker Down Sleeping Bag from First Ascent is ideal for camping and overnight hiking in South Africa’s colder weather conditions. 

The Ice Breaker Down Sleeping Bag is designed to insulate and retain your body heat from colder weather – like those icy-cold winter mornings in the Kgalagadi. Its use of Down, as well as its scalloped neck and face baffle, prevent cold air from creeping in and ensure a comfortable night’s sleep.

As one of South Africa’s top-selling sleeping bags, we recommend the First Ascent Ice Breaker Down to our customers looking for a sleeping bag that offers all-around comfort, versatility and warmth for their camping and overnight hiking trips.
