New Brindabella XT & Spindrift XT sleeping bags

The release of the Brindabella XT and Spindrift XT series represents the biggest change in Mont sleeping bag history.

Across both these new Series we've introduced a swathe of improvements and new features, striking colour schemes and new shell fabric providing marked improvements in function and performance.

Brindabella XT Series

Replaces the Tapered Rectangular Series

Shop Brindabella

Versatile sleeping bags for cool to cold adventures both above & below the snow-line.

The Brindabella XT series includes two models each available in Standard, Women's and Extra Large sizes: The Brindabella 700 rated from -6 to -12ºC and the Brindabella 850 rated from -10 to -16ºC. The Brindabella XT series replaces the Tapered Rectangular Series that included the Kiandra, Brindabella, Ossa and Nadgee sleeping bags.

  • Fabric upgraded to more durable and far higher performing Hydronaute XT laminated fabric: 20,000mm waterhead and 20,000g/m2/24hours breathability. Previously used Hydronaute XT had a 1000mm waterhead and 7000g/m2/24hours breathability
  • Vertical Chest baffles and side block baffles maintain optimal down distribution for greater performance
  • Unique Cordless Collar System that wraps efficiently around shoulders without the need for a fiddly and/or uncomfortable drawcord. When not in use the Cordless Collar System tucks inside and can be secured to increase ventilation. The Cordless Collar System is an original Mont design
  • Anti Snag system along zip has been improved with a durable laminated Nylon tape that more efficiently reduces snagging. The Anti Snag system has also been integrated with a down filled 2-Dimensional draught tube that interlocks with the existing 3-Dimensional draught tube for greater insulation along the zip
  • Hood drawcord moved from shoulder to top of hood for easier location and easier use
  • Improved hood shape creates a better fit around head for greater insulation
  • New ComPacked Compression Stuff Sack with Mechanical Advantage. Three webbing compression straps in pulley configuration provide mechanical advantage to compress gear smaller with less effort. The ComPacked Compression Stuff Sack is an original Mont design
