A new brand for us here at Facewest. At first glance quite similar to Exped but offering several new angles. Watch out for a range of window drybags (which Exped no longer produce), superb ultra lightweight drybags and some very useful bits and pieces like a long handled aluminium spoon for eating out of freeze dried meal packs without getting food all over your hands.
But the most exciting thing about Sea Summit is their down sleeping bags. STS are using 850+ fill power down measured the European way (Lorch). This is the highest quality of down used in the outdoor industry and although I have seen it in down jackets for next season, this is the first time I have seen it in sleeping bags. Each bag comes with it’s own individual down fill power certificate. STS have also used some innovative construction methods to combat the reduction in warmth due to dampness when you use your bag over several days. STS have paid attention to the details which matter to the demanding user. Premium products especially those using down come with premium price tags, but don’t confuse price with value for money.
At Facewest we have the Alpine, Traverse and Micro Bags. Each bag style comes in 2 weights and at the moment just regular lengths and left zips, although I am sure we could order in the other variants if required. Check them out.
