Adventure racing presented Red Fox with an interesting challenge – to create products that double duty (even triple duty) to save weight, and be lightweight by themselves.
The Alpha Sleeping Bag/Pack is a 3-in-1 sleeping bag, backpack and insulated cloak built for adventure racing. Made with Polartec® Alpha®, the amazing fleece insulation that is uniformly lofted up to have minimal weight and bulk with maximum heat capacity. It compresses down so when in pack mode it offers room to carry essentials. When opened up it becomes a full length sleeping bag so you can rest comfortably long enough to recharge and continue on your journey.
The entire system is just over a pound (470 g) and can be easily transformed. While on the run, your gear can be carried inside the Alpha in its backpack configuration; to conserve heat during an extended break, change it to cloak mode and you’ll be protected from the elements while your gear stays stowed in a convenient, zippered, back pocket. Finally, when it’s time to turn in for the night, pull out the sleeping bag configuration and you’ve got all the protection you need –an outer lining keeps you dry while Polartec's Alpha® insulation keeps you warm through the night. There’s also mosquito netting that zips over the face of the sleeping bag, keeping those annoying critters at bay.
