Many Mont sleeping bags are available with zips on either the left side or the right side. First and foremost this is to allow people of both left or right hand dominance to be comfortable in their sleeping bag.
For Right Handed People
Generally a right handed person is most comfortable in a Left Hand Zip sleeping bag (LHZ), reaching over their left shoulder with their right hand to operate the zip.
For Left Handed People
A left hand person is generally most comfortable in a Right Hand Zip sleeping bag (RHZ), reaching over their right shoulder with their left hand to operate the zip.
This is not a rule and there will be personal preferences.
Also, many Mont Sleeping Bags with opposite zips can be zipped together, quickly and easily creating a sleeping bag for two.
Even Standard and Extra Large Mont Sleeping Bags will zip perfectly to each other because of a uniform length and gauge of side zips.
A Mont Women’s size sleeping bag will zip to another Women’s size sleeping bag and also to any Standard or Extra Large size with only a small section of unattached zip on the larger bag.
If you intend on zipping Mont Sleeping Bags of different generation together, we suggest checking prior to purchase that they zip together correctly as zip production can vary slightly over time. Mont uses only YKK brand zips on all Mont products, the most reliable zips available.Shop Mont Sleeping Bags

As summer approaches, I keep looking through my list of past walks to see which ones I want to do again.
In September 1986 I walked from Lake St Clair, up past Little Hugel to Mt Hugel. I then continued down the western slopes to Lake Hermione, followed a valley up to Lake Petrarch and walked back down to Lake St Clair. A good partly offtrack bushwalk. This time I only had two days, so the plan was to camp next to a tarn up on the Mt Hugel plateau.
One of the biggest jobs at Mont is customer service, with the inbox sometimes a little overwhelming! But the emails are overwhelmingly positive; questions about our gear, emails about how well a customers gear worked, and fun stories and photos from the wild.
It isn’t all smiles, though, negative emails do occasionally pop up. But not to let that get us down, often these emails highlight a failure of communication on our part or provide information for us to reflect upon and improve.
