The new Ugly Bag™ is the first-ever sleeping bag to use high-performance 100% alpaca fleece for insulation. By now, we hope you’re well aware of the numerous characteristics that make alpaca fiber ideal for outdoor performance. Just in case, here’s a reminder: alpaca is naturally moisture managing, highly breathable, temperature regulating, odor resistant, lightweight, and offers an incredible warmth to weight ratio. By developing a sleeping bag using our patent pending All-Paca™ fleece as insulation, we are able to offer a sustainable alternative to the down and synthetic bags flooding the market without sacrificing any of those performance qualities

The Ugly Bag™ features a zipperless, hoodless construction with elastic at the opening and chest for a comfortable, expandable fit. A unique “turtleneck” feature at the opening provides an extra length of All-Paca fabric that can be tucked inside for additional core warmth, bunched around the neck like a baffle, or pulled completely over the head like a hood. The Ugly Bag can be used on its own or as an overbag with a standard mummy and is suitable to a 30°F range (when used in a tent with the proper base layers). When paired as a system with the award-winning All-Paca Sleeping Bag Liner, it is suitable to a 10-15°F range.

Ugly Bags will be made to order and will begin shipping the week of August 22.

This innovative sleep system provides a high-functioning and eco-friendly alternative to down insulation. All-Paca Fleece is naturally insulating without having to rely on loft and insulates even when wet. The Ugly Bag’s shell is constructed from soft-structure Tyvek, a spun-bonded high-density polyethylene fabric that is highly water resistant and extremely abrasion-resistant without sacrificing breathability.

We typically ship orders within a week from date of purchase to provide time for processing and packaging as we fulfill and package every order by hand. If we have an influx of orders (i.e. when we drop new inventory), it may take up to two weeks for shipment of items.

    • Use any normal detergent. Do not use “washing Soda”, Chlorine OR Peroxide bleaches, or “Oxygen Cleaners”

    • Turn Ugly Bag fleece-side out and hang to dry.

    • The Fleece products will not exhibit much shrinkage.

    • If you are backpacking or traveling, and need to wash your Ugly Bag for any reason, and do not have access to regular detergents:

      1. Backpacking: Just rinse with stream water, let air dry, do not use detergent, follow Leave No Trace Principles.

      2. Traveling: You can use shampoo, mild liquid dish/hand detergent (just a drop or two) , rinse in a sink, hang dry.



    • The Trail Seam™ - The unique 100% Alpaca fiber fabric that lines the Ugly Bag deserved a seam that would be worthy of Adventure. We designed our Trail Seam™ for tremendous toughness and durability, so you can be confident the gear will perform under extreme stress and prolonged usage.

    • Weft Knit - 100% Alpaca fiber is knitted into a unique fabric that provides exceptional performance.  Our special knit structure resists “running” - so if you poke a hole in it while you are in the backcountry, the hole may get slightly larger over time, but you don’t have to worry about the hole turning in to a long “run” as experienced in many lightweight knits.

    • Tyvek Outer Layer The Ugly Bag’s shell is constructed from soft-structure Tyvek, a spun-bonded high-density polyethylene fabric that is highly water resistant, lightweight, and extremely abrasion-resistant without sacrificing breathability.

    • Lightweight - The Ugly Bag is lightweight and packable enough to throw in your bag for any adventure that might require some serious insulation.
