A compact waist high sleeping bag in 28°F or 18°F to be used with our mountain parkas as a complete system for 3 season or high altitude bivouacs.
For more than half a century the climbers of the European Alps have embraced this concept for one or two night forays into the hills. Nunatak has given new life to idea of the historic 'Elephant's Foot' with the Akula.
High tech fabrics, 900FP down and Nunatak's supreme craftsmanship makes the Akula superior to the crude chopped off sleeping bags of the old mountaineers.
This seemingly odd sleep system combining a short bag with a full strength down parka is so warm and versatile that it has become the Nunatak staff's preferred 3-4 season overnight climbing setup. We leave our arms in the sleeves and simply stick the hands inside the Akula or in the parka pockets.
For sitting or limited space no other system works better, save for maybe the Raku, another Nunatak exclusive.
Another option for fine tuning the Akula Down is an extended single layer fabric 'sleeve' permanently attached to the top edge of the insulated part. Long enough to cover one's head with a scalloped cut that makes the front lower than the back. Two drawstrings: one at the top of the half bag, operated from the inside, and another controlling the top of the sleeve. See here for pics
