How to care for your down sleeping bag
Between trips always store your bag in it’s storage sack to help maintain the loft & warmth of your bag.
We recommend using a Mont Inner Sheet with your bag; this will help keep it clean & maintain the loft & warmth of your bag.
Using a camping mat under your bag will help keep the bag clean & will provide thermal insulation from the ground.
Always air your bag after each use & store completely dry.
How to wash a down sleeping bag
Mont recommends hand washing your bag in a large tub with down-cleaner. Do not dry-clean. Do not use bleach or fabric softener. Do not use a top loading washing machine.

“I arrived in Finland a few days ago and I have survived my second Russian winter, thanks in no small part to the Main Range. The sleeping bag has been brilliant!”
Benji Rogers-Wilson, Mont Ambassador, Earth Odyssey.
“”I have the new Mont Main Range sleeping bag and it was comfortable even at the high camp of 6000m. Temperatures got down to around minus 20-25 degrees at night but I often actually couldn’t zip the bag up as I was too warm in it when I wore my thermals inside!”
Allie Pepper, Mountaineer and Mont Ambassador.
“At the end of a 35 below day on the Antarctic plateau I always look forward to a few luxuries; a bowl of chicken curry, Sigur Rós on the iPod and my Mont sleeping bag. It doesn’t matter where I am in Antarctica, among the coastal mountains or at the South Pole, my Main Range is with me. It’s more than just a luxury, it’s a necessity.”
Eric Philips, Mont Ambassador, Icetrek Expeditions.

In a market dominated by ultra-light at-all-cost tents, Mont Moondance tents are more popular than ever thanks to their superior reliability, function and versatility. So much so that our best-selling Moondance 2 Tents have been difficult to keep in stock.
So if our tents are so popular, why don't we just make more? Unfortunately, it isn't quite that simple.
