The Sapphire is a crowd-pleaser, and that's because it does a number of things well. The first is that it offers proper versatility. It can handle most conditions and weather, and is most suited for both camping and hiking. If temperatures do drop suddenly in the evening, you can add a little extra warmth around the neck and head by using the cowl. Secondly, it's reasonably light at only 1.8kg and is hardy, making it a durable, rugged sleeping bag. The outer is made from Ripstop Nylon, and the Polycotton inner wicks moisture from your body to keep you dry and warm. The hollow fibre filling is a great insulator, allows for breathability and is low maintenance. But the last point is probably the best one, the left and right handed zips enable two Sapphire bags to be joined together so you can share your sleeping bag with anyone you want.

Care Guide: Down sleeping bags

Check the label on the bag for care instructions and follow these guidelines. Don’t store it in a compressed stuff sack for long periods, it can constrict the insulation and affect the bag’s efficiency. If you do need to put it into a stuff sack, always pack it away, don’t roll it. Store loosely in a cool, dry place, and never pack your bag away when it’s wet or damp, it can cause mould. Let it air dry (not in direct sunlight) before packing away. Down sleeping bags need to be cleaned periodically, but it should be done by professionals – visit your nearest Cape Union Mart to find out more. If you find that feathers are leaking (which can easily happen through the seams), it’s a common occurrence as the sharp quills can make holes in the fabric and then escape. It’s more common in new bags as the feathers haven’t had a chance to settle.

To wash, turn it inside-out and use a frontloading washing machine, a warm water cycle and a mild powder cleaning detergent. Make sure you do a few rinse cycles to get rid of all the soap and excess water. If you do tumble dryer, use a very low heat setting, and check it regularly to make sure it isn’t getting too hot. You can also air-dry it (not in direct sunshine). Make sure it’s completely dry before storing it.
