Dimensional Volume: 4356.00 in3
Dimensional Volume (DV) is NOT the number used by manufacturers to denote capacity. To get a cubic inch number that you can use to compare to what you're accustomed to, multiply DV by 1.5 as a rule of thumb. Bigger packs can use an even bigger multiplier - up to 1.7.

The Mountain Serape is an exercise in insulation versatility. This single item functions in the following ways:

  • insulated hooded poncho
  • knee length greatcoat (zipper or hook secured)
  • blanket for two in a survival situation
  • half zip sleeping bag good for a 20-30 degree temperature gain
It has the following features.
  • 66" x 88" - Note that the way the sleeping bag mode works makes this effectively much longer when in that mode. It will extend 12" past the head of a someone who is 5'10" and 220 when in sleeping bag mode.
  • DWR treated 70 denier mini-ripstop shell sheds snow and light rain
  • 2.4oz primaloft fusion insulation (US made primaloft gold)
  • YKK zippers
  • at 2.5lbs it is heavier than a comparable sleeping bag, but lighter than a comparable sleeping bag plus comparable jacket.
Edward Curtis Canyon De Chelly
When humans first set foot in a new continent, they came in small groups under their own power, bringing only the gear they needed. Most simply called themselves The People. Over time, those who chose the rougher freer life of the up country came to think of themselves as the Hill People.
