The whole past year, I was looking for a warm high quality down sleeping bag for 4-season mountaineering, hiking, backpacking, camping andother outdoor activities. I have been looking to all well established manufacturers such as Mountain Equipment, Feather Friends, Marmot, Rab, Montbell, Mountain Hardwear etc. I have been comparing various models and I was still searching for other manufacturers until the point I came across the Cumulus website. I have compared several of their models and I came to the conclusion that the Cumulus Panyam 600 was the right piece of gear for me.

The features of the Panyam 600 are the following:

  • Fabric: Pertex Quantum, 35 g/m²
  • Filling: Polish goose down, 850 cuin
  • Construction: Trapezoid chambers
  • Independently filled top and bottom of the sleeping bag
  • 175 cm YKK separating zip with two self-locking sliders
  • Can be opened and ventilated at the bottom of the sleeping bag
  • Can be combined with other sleeping bags
  • Full length, down-filled, zip insulating baffle
  • Independent down-filled collar
  • Three-dimensional, elastic adjustable hood fitted with stopper
  • Internal pocket
  • Additional, large mesh bag to store your sleeping bag at home 

My first feeling with the sleeping bag is more than good. It is lightweight and the construction seems to be solid. As soon as you take the sleeping bag, off the storage bag you can see how easy and fast lofts. All materials used are of high quality including the YKK zippers as well. I also like the “orange” shade of the sleeping bag, because on an unforeseen emergency, the sleeping bag could be used as an emergency signaling element.

Is this your company? Are you trying to sell these sleeping bags?

No, it is not my company and i do NOT try to sell these sleeping bags. :)

I am just a happy user of these bags (and other down products) and therefore, I wanted to share my experience with other mountaineers. 

How did you come to the idea Cumulus would be my company? Because of a review?

Cumulus has been around, European backpackers seem to like their quilts. 

Anyway, relevant specs on this thing in case anyone cares: 

- 35oz

- 21oz fill

- EN Lower Limit 9F

- looks like ~$310 USD shipped

Lots of good bags in this category, but the price on this one is nice. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
