Available in two sizes these are due to be a huge success. With upgrades from the old model, such as a hollow fill that increases warmth and mouldability, a new fleece lining on the top half of the bag and a new zip baffle!
The bag is rated as a 3-season. A further significant improvement is the way that this new bag attaches to the bed itself. Previously it attached to the underside of the bed with Velcro strips, however, we had reports from some users that they felt slightly too constricted within the bag, so we therefore changed the design so that the bag now zips to the size of the mattress. This means that there is much more ‘give’ in the bag giving you much more usable space inside. We have also upgraded the mattress on the bed itself, so it is a firmer, high density foam that again makes the bed even more comfortable to lay on.
As with the original Flatliter design the MK2’s feature a flat frame to mimic the design of your bed at home. They also feature the dual hinges that enable you to fold the bed up with the supplied sleeping bag still attached, and thanks to the new tension strap design (straps on both sides that go around the frame rather than over mattress) it is now possible to fold it far more compact than previously.
Further features that have continued from the original Flatliter include the single legs at both ends to aid stability whilst keeping weight to a minimum, and a lumbar support to prevent mattress sagging.
