Product Care

Sleeping bag care

Washing instructions

All Snugpak® bags are fully washable by hand or even by washing machine. Instructions are given on the care label sewn into one of the inner seams.

However, even the highest grade filling will eventually lose some thermal efficiency and structure after repeated wash cycles, so machine washing, in particular, should not be done often. Whenever possible, instead of a full wash, we recommend the sponging of both inner and outer fabrics with soap and water. Then dry and air the bag thoroughly. Using a loose liner, which can be washed separately as often as you like, will undoubtedly extend you bags life. Some of the liners will also add warmth.

Zip up the sleeping bag and ensure any drawcords are fully in the machine and not trapped in the door before starting.



Machine wash on a cool and gentle setting (never more than 30°C/86°F) in a front loading domestic washing machine (we would advise against using a top loader as the agitator can damage the product)

Avoid the use of liquid detergent and fabric softeners as this can leave a residue on the bag, a low or fragrance-free powder is ideal.

We use a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) finish on all our nylon jackets & sleeping bags - water repellency can be maintained with periodic re-treatment with suitable aftercare products such as Nikwax.



Do not store the bag compressed for long periods between uses. While we sometimes roll sleeping bags at the factory for despatch, we would not advise emulating this without special machinery. We suggest stuffing your sleeping bag into its compression sack.

We recommend line drying

We recommend not to tumble dry. Warning, drying sleeping bags or bulky clothing in a tumble drier could result in heat damage to the items. This can happen even on a low-temperature setting if the item is left in the dryer too long or if the item does not have enough space in which to tumble freely.




Zip care

Open-End Zipper

When closing
Pull the slider down completely, until it touches the retainer box.
Fully insert the separable pin into the box. (Incomplete insertion may cause problems.)
While holding the insert pin side with one hand, pull up the slider with the other hand.



When opening
Pull the slider down completely, until it touches the retainer box.
Gently pull out the separable pin with your hand.

Two-Way Open Zipper
Zips for sleeping bags will be ruined if they become jammed or if the two parts not fitted together properly on a two-way zipper.

When closing
Pull the upper slider down, until it touches the bottom slider.
Insert the separable pin to the very bottom of the bottom slider. (Incomplete insertion may cause problems.)
Pull the upper slider up with your hand.



When opening
Pull the slider down completely, until it touches the bottom slider.
Gently pull out the separable pin with your hand.

Tent Proper use, Care and Storage

• Do not use candles, matches or open flames of any kind in or near a tent
• Do not cook inside a tent
• Do not smoke inside a tent
• Do not pitch your tent too close to a campfire. The campfire should be downwind from your tent. Always completely extinguish a campfire before leaving a campsite or going to sleep for the night



• Do not operate any device inside the tent which burns fuel. (Examples: Barbecue, cooktop, kerosene heater). Dangerous levels of carbon monoxide can build up and lead to serious injury or death. We recommend the use of battery-operated lanterns
• Do not store flammable liquids inside a tent; do not re-fill lamps, heaters or stoves inside a tent
• Do not use water collected from the surface of the tent for cooking or drinking.

The fabric of your tent will last longer if you limit its UV exposure. Do not leave the tent up for longer than necessary after each use (for example, in a tent left up over the course of an entire summer in direct sunlight, the fabric will slowly become less pliable and more brittle, as it gets damaged by UV rays)



As needed, the tent may be washed with soapy water and a sponge, then rinsed. Use a gentle detergent or dish soap. Do not use any products which contain chlorine. Towel dry and then hang or spread flat to make certain tent is completely dry. We recommend a product such as Nikwax.

Always make sure that the tent fabric is completely dry before storage. Storing a tent with damp fabric may result in the growth of mould.
