Features & Functionality

VAUDE sleeping bags offer a host of useful features and functions to ensure optimum comfort and performance that will help guarantee your next trip to be an unforgettable experience.

Fitted Hood

The human body loses about 30 % of its heat through the head. The hood on a sleeping bag has the task of minimizing this loss of heat at night. This part of the sleeping bag is anatomically shaped to provide optimal insulation in the head area.


With the help of a drawcord you can easily adjust the hood of the sleeping bag to your needs. Upper and lower parts of the hood are individually adjustable. Particularly practical is the different thicknesses of the cords, which makes them easy to distinguish even in the dark.

Thermal Collar

Our sleeping bags have a thermal collar inside, which ensures that the heat loss from the inside of the sleeping bag is minimized. The thickness of this thermal collar varies depending on the temperature range that the bag is designed for. A good fit for your head is especially important. Snap closures reduce the chances of claustrophobia and allow a quick exit from the bag.

Arm Openings

Some VAUDE models – such as Säntis, Gamplüt and Kobel – have two practical side arm openings. This makes it easy to cook or read in your sleeping bag during a multi-day tour or at a campground.

Stretch Zone

The Säntis model has a special stretch zone that allows for greater mobility. This stretchy VAUDE synthetic fiber sleeping bag has elastic seams at the knees with up to + 30 % stretch, which makes the bag more comfortable for active sleepers who move around a lot in their sleep, or for anyone who likes to sit cross-legged. The Säntis is form fitting and therefore warms up more quickly because less air has to be warmed up.


Mummy sleeping bags have a foot box thatis precisely adapted to the space needs of your feet. The volume in this area is reduced, so less air needs to be warmed up and heat efficiency is increased.

Length Adjustment

The VAUDE sleeping bag Rotstein features continuous adjustment of the bag’s length so you can adjust it to your own needs or let someone else use it as well, for example, another family member.

Connecting Bags

The models of the Navajo and Kamor series are connectible – two sleeping bags can easily be combined with each other. Our VAUDE sleeping bags can be easily coupled with compatible zips without compromising comfort on the sleeping surface. For different temperature requirements you can even combine sleeping bags with different down fills or synthetic fiber fills – whether for cold or warm conditions. So each person can best meet their own needs for warmth.

Inner Pockets

Some of our sleeping bag models have a practical inside pocket. For most people this is approximately at chest height on the inside of the sleeping bag. It’s made of a soft lining material so you won’t be bothered by seams or hard materials. You can store valuables or small items easily and safely in the pocket.

Duvet Cover Compatibility

Some sleeping bags from the Navajo and Kamor series can be easily converted into a blanket, and have a size of 155 cm x 220 cm when open. They’re compatible with standard “comfort sized” duvet covers (oversize).

Storage Sack

Certain VAUDE sleeping bags – such as those from the Alpstein and Rotstein series – come with a practical storage sack for gentle storage that won’t affect the bag’s loft.
