The Defence 4 is the most popular and best-selling all-round sleeping bag with excellent weight to stuff size and performance ratio. It is a well-established, treeseason sleeping bag that has proven to be 100% reliable on cold nights both in the wilderness and in snow caves. A protection flap on the outer side of the ziper keeps out wind and wetness. The outer shell is a super-light, highly resistant, microfibre nylon with a fine microporous coating which makes it waterproof. There is a generous draft tube on the inside of the zipper to prevent heat loss at the zipper.

Our comment: It is for good reason that the Carinthia Defence 4 is the sleeping bag of the german armed forces and one of the best-sellers of its category on the civilian market. The modern G-Loft fibre is highly insulating at a fairly light weight and the outer material is very robust, windproof and strongly water resistant. Hard use and humid weather won't be an issue with this sleeping bag. The 2-way-zipper in the middle of the bag allows to get out of it very quickly if needed. Combined with the Carinthia Tropen the Defence 4 forms a sleeping setup that can be used down to -40°C and is also used by german armed forces.
