Softie – Insulation

Softie® – The brand name for the synthetic (Polyester) filling we use for the Softie® ranges of sleeping bags. It utilises superfine yarns bound with special resins to produce a luxurious down-like feel. It is created from staple yarns which mirror the compositions of natural insulation (As opposed to continuously extruded as in most synthetic fills) a variety of yarn processes are applied to give a more random effect, that is some are curled, some crimped and some are just left as they are. The random nature of the process results in a product that closely resembles the structure of natural insulators and the way they perform. Given all this technology Softie® is still easy to care for, washable and retains a lot of its thermal properties when wet.


  • Retains heat even when wet
  • Super-fine filaments
  • Natural soft touch
