The Summit range from the Dark Star is a sleeping bag for winter conditions by very large cold or extreme expeditions. It will be ideal expedition in ski-pulka, travel by dogsled, scientific expedition and on the base camps of the highest peaks of the world.

The North face garni Dark Star with excellent insulators Climashield Prism and Apex. The Apex is a synthetic insulator in continuous filament with sustainability than other synthetic insulations. After many years, he is among the best insulation on the market.

Made in the USA, the Climashield Apex comes in the form of panels and therefore does not require a construction by quilting or quilting. Insulation remains in place. This prevents too many seams that are undermining the bag and increase thermal bridges. Another strong point is it supports rather well washing (not agglomerates in a ball and better retains its loft).
