Polarguard Delta and Silk Sleeping Bag

Polarguard Delta and Silk Sleeping Bag - 8.76 ounces

31 march 2007

I have been thinking about making an all Silk Sleeping Bag for some time. I have been cleaning up my work space and finished Friday so I decided to work on it today and it went fast.

I am using the same pattern as I used on the all Cuben / Primaloft One sleeping and the Two layer Climashield Combat and Pertex Quantum Sleeping Bag.

I started working after lunch this afternoon and finished about 11:00 pm this evening. I stopped a few times to eat and do a few other things but the bag went together without a ripped stitch.

I am using one layer of Polarguard Delta as the insulation. The Basis Weight of the PG-D was 2.16 oz per square yard. This give me a clo of 1.47. The total weight of the insulation is 5.15 ounces.

I used 4.5 mm silk for all the material in this Sleeping Bag. The total weight of the Silk is 3.65 ounces.

This is the non-insulated insert for the bottom part.

This is a full size sleeping bag and is 72" long and has a circumference at the opening of 71". I use an elastic draw cord to close the opening.

This shows the non-insulated insert for the bottom.

After a bit of trimming the total weight of the new Polarguard Delta / Silk Sleeping Bag is 8.76 ounces.

I like, I like your material. I have done a little of the same (rain pants that worked for two Oregon ski seasons) Could you send me a vendor list of the materials you have used in your projects. My e-mail is

Thanks, John

Hi Zed,
Several years ago I was able to buy some Polarguard Delta from two places. I got 10 yards of the 2 ounce per square yard insulation that was left over from someone that was making garments out of it. Then later I was able to buy a 60 yard roll but had to take the 2.6 ounce per square yard insulation. I bought the 60 yard roll from the company that makes it. When the company sold it to me it was with the understanding that I would not retail it.

Polarguard Delta is no longer made.
