ABOUT NANGA

Established in 1941, NANGA was founded at the foot of Mount Ibuki, in Maibara. Our founder, Akira Yokota started with the goal of wanting to discover the unknown. To discover the unknown, Yokota merged groundbreaking technology with high end materials that has helped thousands of explorers get to their destination. Our name, "NANGA," was adopted from the Himalayan mountain "NANGA PARBAT." The mountain towers at over 8000 meters and is the ninth highest mountain in the world. Notoriously named “Killer Mountain,” it is responsible for numerous deaths and to this day still considered dangerous. At NANGA, our philosophy is to produce responsible and relevant products that help you get to where you want to be. For over 70 years, NANGA has demonstrated excellence through technology and continues to dominate in its field.

At NANGA, quality control, safety features, and customer satisfaction never get overlooked. Our attention to detail is how we developed our brand and is embedded in its philosophy. Only using ethically sourced European white duck down, all of our products undergo  serious quality tests before being put to use.

TECHNOLOGY 01

YKK × NANGA

NANGA x YKK parts which reduce snagging and catching

Our sleeping bags are equipped with specialized YKK parts on zipper sliders to minimize snagging and catching of the fabric

When using a sleeping bag, there is a risk of the zipper catching on the super-thin fabric and preventing the opening and closure of the bag. If severely snagged, the zipper may even cause damage to the fabric. To mitigate such problems, we have attached special YKK parts to the zipper sliders. These parts are developed to diminish the gaps in the zipper slider that causes the snagging, resulting in fewer occurrences of the fabric getting caught as well as reduced damage to the fabric in case of such events. Furthermore, the parts are made from lightweight resin (weighing 1.6 g per piece) with phosphorescent features for easier operation in the dark.

Due to the concave design of the specialized YKK zippers, the fasteners guide the fabric towards the center, reducing any chance of snagging or catching. 

With our phosphorescent technology, finding your zippers in your dark tent will no longer become a hassle.

SOLID STRUCTURE

The next-level sleeping bag construction

All NANGA sleeping bags are constructed following a trapezoid box baffle pattern structure which brings out the full potential of down. This simple yet sophisticated pattern structure allows any user to absorb the maximum amount of heat possible. The sleek design of our sleeping bags realistically tailors to the human body making it the most efficient in size and capacity.

01. Trapezoid box baffle structure

What makes this pattern structure so efficient is that it prevents the down from bunching up, and also plays a role in reducing the overall weight of the sleeping bag. As the geometric structure supports each other, the full potential of the down is maximized. By reducing the heat radiation, it eliminates any potential bunching, and evenly distributes even heat throughout the sleeping bag.

02. Foot box

A distinguishing feature of this structure is that it prevents the down from bunching up, and allows for a reduction in weight. Because each of the boxes supports each other, the full loft potential of the down is maximized, and by reducing any diminished heat radiation through potential bunching, heat retention is efficiently distributed throughout the bag.

03. Shoulder warmer & draft tube

Our shoulder warmer and draft tube prevents any cold air from entering the sleeping bag.

*This feature is only available with our trapezoid box quilt models

04. Three-dimensional hood

During the cold seasons, its crucial to keep your head warm. The three dimensional hood equipped in specific models blankets your head, and functionally retains the heat so you can stay warm longer. The fastener was designed near the top of the sleeping bag, making zipping up and down your sleeping bag a breeze.
