HotCore® T-series sleeping bags have a tapered design (almost a mummy shape) which makes them lighter and more compressible than our R-series bags with their rectangular design but you still get the comfort of a roomy design.
The T-100 is a terrific sleeping bag for warm weather camping and travel. The tapered shape provides great thermal efficiency and a compact size and weight.
We use high quality siliconized TrueLoft™ micro fibre insulation in all of our sleeping bags that traps more warm air between its micro fibers than traditional insulations with the same loft, giving you a warm sleeping bag in a compact and lightweight package. TrueLoft™ is lightweight, compressible, breathable, and extremely quick drying, all to keep you warm and comfortable.
"At a thrifty $80 CAD, the Hotcore T-100 sleeping bag punches well above its price. The quality of design and manufacturing is impressive from this Canadian company."

We use thermal body-mapping construction to place the insulation where it will do the most good. You already have an insulating sleeping matt below you, and most of the sleeping bag insulation that is below will be compressed by your body weight, making it inefficient. We move much of this insulation to the top of our sleeping bags where it will trap warmth from your body.
Then we add an extra layer of TrueLoft™ insulation in the core body area, from the neckline to below the beltline, to help achieve and maintain the temperature ratings. This extra layer of insulation will trap more warmth from the body than comparable sleeping bags, while adding very little to the weight, size, and cost of the sleeping bag. Think of it as putting on a jacket, the first thing we all do when we need to stay warm.
We call this Critical Layer Construction.?
