Nomad says about the Taurus 180
The NOMAD® Taurus 180 is a super-lightweight summer mummy sleeping bag with an extra wide fit. This version is perfect if you like to sleep in a mummy sleeping bag but prefer some additional freedom of movement.
Rolling over onto your other side at night is no problem with this mummy sleeping bag. The Taurus offers the warmth of a mummy sleeping bag combined with the roominess of a blanket-model sleeping bag.
The Taurus 180 comes with a soft hood that can easily be tightened around the head with the integral cord; this helps to retain warmth should the temperature fall during your summer trip. The sleeping bag also features a ‘3D foot box’ structure, providing more space and insulation at the lower end − no more cold feet!
The sleeping bag can be opened from both ends using the handy 2-way zip, which means you can open the zip wherever you need to create some extra ventilation, and if it is dark in your tent, no worries; you can always find your zip easily thanks to the glow-in-the-dark zip pull. There is also a pocket on the inside of the sleeping bag where you can store your small, valuable belongings.
The Taurus 180 is very compact and weighs only 520 grams because it is made from super-lightweight breathable polyester. This fabric is also ‘ripstop’, meaning it is woven using a technique that makes it stronger and more tear-resistant. The filling of this sleeping bag is a mixture of down and synthetic down, ensuring softness, warmth and comfort.
The Taurus 180 is finished with a PFC-free coating, giving it water-repellent properties without the use of harmful chemicals. The lining has been treated with Polygiene Stays Fresh® technology. This antibacterial treatment ensures that the sleeping bag remains fresh and free from odours for longer; it also means the bag needs to be washed less frequently.
The Taurus 180 incorporates suspension loops to facilitate airing after use. It can then be packed in a very compact format using the compression stuffsack supplied.
The recommended maximum body length for this sleeping bag is 190 centimetres.
The Taurus 180 is suitable for warmer nights. Approximate comfort temperatures are 16°C for women and 13°C for men. This sleeping bag is not recommended for temperatures below 3°C.
