Nomad says about the Orion 400 XL
If you are looking for a warm, ultra-light and extra-large mummy sleeping bag that you can take along on your travels in a compact size, you are just right selecting the NOMAD® Orion 400 XL. This sleeping bag weighs only 760 grams, and thanks to its compact packed size you can easily take it with you in your rucksack. Ideal for backpacking travels, hikes through the mountains or long bicycle rides where every gram counts.
This is absolutely the ideal sleeping bag for you when you have a taller and broader body build, because the design of the Orion 400 XL is such that it is 20 cm longer and 5 cm wider than our regular Orion 400, so that you have all the room you need to sleep warm and comfortably.
The Orion 400 XL is made from super-light, breathable polyester, which feels soft and airy on the skin. The sleeping bag is filled with a mixture of water-repellent down and synthetic hollow fibre, ensuring outstanding warmth and comfort. We know that it’s usually the arms and feet that get cold fastest when you lie still for a long time, so we have added additional insulation in the chest area of this sleeping bag, as well designing a ‘3D foot box’ structure to keep your feet warm.
The Orion 400 XL comes with a comfortable hood and padded neck collar, each with its own pull cord so that you can tighten them independently from one another. By tightening the hood more closely, more warmth can be retained around your head, and the padded neck collar means that valuable body warmth cannot escape through the upper opening. It also keeps the neck nice and warm.
This sleeping bag comes with a handy 2-way zip with a length of 155 centimetres that can be opened from both ends, which is useful when you need some fresh air around your legs at night. Inside the sleeping bag is a dedicated compartment for storing small, valuable belongings while you sleep, and if you need to get out of your sleeping bag at night – no problem – you can always find your zip thanks to the glow-in-the-dark zip pull.
The Orion 400 XL is finished with a PFC-free coating, giving it water-repellent properties without the use of harmful chemicals. The lining has been treated with Polygiene Stays Fresh® technology. This antibacterial treatment ensures that the sleeping bag remains fresh and free from odours for longer; it also means the bag needs to be washed less frequently.
The Orion 400 XL can easily be aired after use using the suspension loops at the base of the sleeping bag. It can then be packed in a very compact format using the compression stuffsack supplied. To store the sleeping bag for a longer period, use the roomy, breathable mesh storage bag.
The recommended maximum body length for this sleeping bag is 200 centimetres. If you do not need the extra length, then check out our Orion 400 or Orion 400 SC sleeping bags, and if you intend to travel in colder regions, our Orion 900 or even 1200 may prove more suitable.
Approximate comfort temperatures for the Orion 400 XL are 3°C for women and -2°C for men. This sleeping bag should never be used at temperatures below -18°C.
