Additional features of the Vango Viper sleeping bags range are;

  • Omega shaping—the is larger at the top than at the bottom.  This keeps your body warmer by reducing any excessive air spaces within the bag.
  • ATC – Advanced Trapezoid Construction—angled chevron baffles prevent the down from moving and increases thermal efficiency by slowing heat loss comparable to similar rectangular shaped baffles.
  • 90/10 550+ fill power down—excellent quality providing maximum loft, warmth, performance and durability.
  • Differential fill—insulation where it counts.
  • Independently tested—temperature ratings independently measured in accordance with EN 13537:2002.
  • Polair® Micro RSN shell—micro-ripstop, soft, downproof, water resistant and washable 3-panel, 3D hood with multi-cord closure—allows maximum adjustment.

Vango Viper – Our thoughts

We think the Vango Viper is a quality product and this is reflected in the price.  The Vango Viper 500 is a good all rounder and will keep the UK camper warm at night from mid spring right through to late Autumn.  Fortunately, or unfortunately, nights during the summer don’t really get any warmer than 20 °C which is ideal for the Viper 500, although we think that the Viper 750 and 100 would be too warm for use in the summer months.
