Equipment made with passion, tested by you.
The first Romanian expedition to the frozen lands of Eastern Siberia, at minus 50°C – February, 2015.
The first Romanian “4x4” expedition involved crossing Siberia - the biggest, wildest and most isolated region of our planet. The vehicles used were Toyota J 81 Hz Land Cruisers. They covered nearly 30,000 km with an overall average speed of 47 km/h (not including stops). Glossary of terms from the team’s journal:rn“warm = minus 30°C, when we didn’t take any notice of the thermometer” rn“cold = minus 50°C, when we didn’t even consider stopping the engines”rn “walled = word used to describe what happened to the engines, shock absorbers, fuel system and diesel filters at minus 40°C” rn
“Hi Dan Glazer, we’re back safely from our expedition. It seems we had a guardian angel with us and everything went more or less according to plan, so I’d really like to thank you very much. All the boys praised the Nahanny equipment very highly. The down jackets, trousers and gloves were indispensible for our expedition, without them we would have been lost. The fact that we wore the equipment at extreme temperatures, says a lot about it (personally I repaired a car at minus 43°C, lying in the snow, doing some welding, without feeling in the least bit cold). All credit to you!” (Mihai Tuca – expedition coordinator, architect, navigator, mechanic, photographer)
Why are we so thankful for Nahanny? Because we arrived alive and well where Siberia meets the Arctic Ocean, in the place where winter rules for 9 months of the year. And because, dressed from head to toe in Nahanny equipment we stood up to blizzards of over 100km/h without problems, knowing for sure that nothing would get through. Because we were able to go on digging, running the engines, eating, photographing and filming at minus 35-45 °C as we had suitable equipment for the task and the conditions. And for that time." (Mihai Tuca – expedition coordinator).
“Kindest regards to Daniel Glazer of Nahanny – the creator of our down clothing without which everything would have been a nightmare.”(Mihai Tuca)
“It seems that the cold was the most feared enemy of the expedition. However, we succeeded in accepting it as such and overcame the cold, taking it all in our stride: With some little exceptions, of course as this is really the coldest of places.” (journal – epilogue ideas)

“Alexandra, please tell me who you are, so that people can get to know you better. I have heard that you are kitted out by a Romanian firm. Is that true?”
My name is Alexandra Marcu. I’ve travelled thousands of kilometres, walked on six continents and I’ve climbed 6 of the 7 biggest volcanoes of the world – all before I was 18 years old. I’ve been from Tanzania to Mexico, in Russia, Chile, Iran and Papua New Guinea. On Elbrus, Kilimanjaro, Pico de Orizaba, Damavund, Giluwe and Ojos del Salado, I’ve “had a taste” of mountains. I actually began at the age of two in the Retezat mountain range in Romania, and since then I’ve always been climbing mountains.
Yes, in this whole adventure I’ve had brilliant support in Nahanny – 100% Made in Romania. I have tested their down products everywhere. On mountains and in the expeditions I do, equipment is vital. My clothing, gloves and sleeping bags must be excellent, adapted to the conditions and temperatures I am exposed to. Also, notable mountaineers like Horia Colibasu, Coco Galescu or Zsolt Torok have used Nahanny in their adventures, and that says it all.
My expedition equipment is made to order at Nahanny, according to my specifications and needs. I’ve realised how important it is to trust the people who, in the end, hold your life in their hands. Everything I have from them gives me safety, lowers the risks, and gives me the warmth and comfort I need. Together with Nahanny, I’ve been able to successfully arrive everywhere.
For me, expeditions are an evolutionary process in my life. I travel a lot, I get to know people and civilisations, I can speak three languages, I climb peaks and I become more responsible, I learn and mature as much as I can. I’ve learned that what is important is not just arriving at the top, but that the road I travel is more important than arriving at the peak. When I get home, after I’ve raised the Romanian flag at 4,000, 5,000 or almost 7,000m altitude, I feel fulfilled, I feel that I’m doing what I enjoy, and it’s then that I am really me.
I’m often asked: What’s next? To be able to help others to travel, so they will feel the joy of being on the top of a mountain, seeing African tribes, the sea lions of the Pacific or Argentinian tango, having that “savoir-faire”. I’ve learned all of these through experience and now I can share that with others.
What is next? I’ve actually never understood that question – our planet is so big…
My expeditions in 2007 were the first in which I used solely Nahanny equipment: sleeping bag, high-altitude jacket, over-trousers, socks and gloves, all down-filled. In the ascent of Dhaulagiri I used all of these articles, while for the Annapurna peak I didn’t use the sleeping bag, since I did a 24-hour ascent.
- the down costume is my favourite, especially the high-altitude jacket. Due to the very good combination of light weight (only 850g) and high thermal insulation, it helped me to do rapid endurance climbs and also to reach altitudes of over 8,000m at a late time (19:00), with low temperatures, without feeling cold. My friend and expedition colleague, the experienced Inaki Ochoa de Olza (who has climbed 12 8,000m mountains), who has one of the most professional altitude costumes, after trying my jacket, confirmed my conclusions that it is extremely light for its performance.
- down overgloves. I usually use Polartec or Cordura overgloves, which are recommended for high altitudes since they have a high resistance to water and tearing. However, due to my profession (dentist) and because they are extremely light (140g), spare gloves are an essential item. Losing these, an accident which has happened to many climbers (to me on Manaslu, to the Kazac mountaineers or to Jorge Ecocheaga on Dhaulagiri), in many cases (including Jorge’s) leads to frostbite and amputations. This is very easy to avoid when you have down gloves which are light and warm, as I have the ones from Nahanny.rn- down socks (slippers) are not necessarily essential, but they can make your camping much more pleasant.
- down sleeping bag. Although too large for the current demands of rapid ascents (1650g compared to Inaki’s summer sleeping bag of 700g, in which he slept in his down costume) it made a difference in the classic climbing style, with intermediate camps, on Dhaulagiri. It meant the difference between nights of not sleeping for the cold, and restful nights, due to its high thermal qualities. This sleeping bag is definitely a very good model, ideal for bivouacking and extreme negative temperatures.
In conclusion, I can say that the Nahanny equipment is made of items which behave very well at high altitudes, and it is definitely the equipment I will be using in my future expeditions. Details at www.horiacolibasanu.ro
Zsolt Török este din Arad. Prin ascensiunile sale şi activitatea alpină desfăşurată de-a lungul a 15 ani intră cu brio în categoria alpinismului complex, polivalent şi autentic. Este prototipul sportivului de anduranţă, cu ambiţii, care la 33 ani devine un exemplu uşor de dat, fără reţineri.Alături de Zsolt şi Marius Tomescu, oameni cu care am avut plăcerea să leg celălalt capăt al corzii şi de alţii care “au plecat capetele şi ridicat gândul spre cer” în amintirea lui Alexandru Brăduţ Şerban, mă alătur şi eu în memoria lui Cuxi, împreună cu echipa Nahanny. Dan Glazer
What can I say about Nahanny equipment? It’s good!
I know one word is not enough, so I’ll support my statement.rnThe fact that one can buy complete high altitude Romanian-made equipment at accessible prices is great.
It is extraordinary that mountain climbing developed so much in Romania that in 2006 there were another 3 expeditions to Himalaya, and it would be difficult to keep track of those whose who went on expeditions to other mountains abroad. This proves that there are many Romanian climbers who are willing and capable of going beyond their limits at high altitudes and especially at above 8000 m.
Nahanny produces equipment which can be successfully used both in the country and the big walls in Europe or in the Himalayas.rnI also appreciate the producer’s responsibility and initiative, but above all the fact that the people from Nahanny listen to and take into account the opinions of those who take part in expeditions or use their products at their maximum wear capacity. One’s experience at hundreds or thousands of kilometers away from home is crucial. Only by taking into account a series of foreseen and unforeseen factors can one improve equipment.
For me, in the expedition on Cho Oyu - 2006, which I dedicate to the memory of Alexandru Brăduţ Şerban (Cuxi), Nahanny passed the test with flying colours. If I had to be critical, I would say they should increase comfort. I would suggest that the inclination of the inside and outside pockets of the winter down jacket be greater.
În altă ordine de idei, m-am gândit că sunt de folos informaţiile următoare vis-a-vis de îmbrăcăminte şi altele: am folosit pentru somn tricou de corp subţire (Mammut Coolmax), powerstrech (Gotec) şi saci de dormit Nahanny – Extrem ( 210 x 86 x 63), unul din nylon ripstop siliconat cu GORE-TEX ultralight la interior şi altul integral din poliamidă, ambii cu umplutură de puf. Menţionez că sunt călduroşi şi plăcuţi în contact cu pielea.
The hood of the bag was exactly what I needed, so I never used a cap!
I wore powerstrech trousers, Lorpen socks and sometimes thin mittens. The down stocks were very useful in the tent, in the kitchen set up by the Sherpas, but especially for ... ‘other necessities’. Speed also mattered a great deal! They didn’t slip on snow as I had expected and as it had happened with the ‘stock’ of the boot.rnNahanny mittens ... very good. Although my hands are usually cold, I did not encounter this problem with these mittens. The temperature recorded by the watch on my wrist during a blizzard was 17ºC.
Ciorapii cu puf sunt utili atât în cort, în bucătăria amenajată de şerpaşi, dar mai ales în ieşirile pentru “alte nevoi”. Rapiditatea contează...!!! Nu alunecă pe zăpadă aşa cum mă aşteptam şi cum am păţit-o cu “ciorapu” bocancului (galoşul). Mănuşile Nahanny ... foarte bune. Deşi sunt friguros la mâini, cu aceste mănuşi nu am avut probleme. Temperatura înregistrată pe ceas, la încheietura mâinii, pe timp de viscol a fost de 17OC.
Nahanny winter down jacket is light and sporty, and the down trousers are extremely warm, with a good design that does not impede movement. Underneath these I wore the same equipment as for sleeping and a Polar 300.rn
My conclusion is that good equipment will continue to be essential for the success of those who plan on going on extreme expeditions and not only. Comfort is important in a hostile environment, which makes you feel uncomfortable anyway, but whoever blames their failure on the equipment should think deeper about that.
I hope it won’t be too long until my next expedition, as for equipment I’ll stick to my latest love...Nahanny.rn
Good weather and good luck!
P.S. For those who’re ‘curious’ about other matters, I mention that I have paid for my equipment.

To set off in an expedition to a peak in the Himalayas seems like craziness to amateurs, but it’s also a great challenge for those who are well-equipped. Tiredness, stress and even fear are just some of the feelings which hit you during this kind of experience. But the thought that, not too far away, in a tent, there’s a comfortable and warm sleeping bag waiting for you, gives you calm and trust in what is to come.
After conquering the Ama Dablam peak, I decided to descend two camps in one stage, partly at night. Surprisingly, my energy, which I thought to be exhausted and at its limit, was refuelled at the thought that I would soon be sleeping in a Nahanny sleeping bag.

The sledge advances with difficulty over the frozen waves. I’ve been pulling 50kg of food, fuel and equipment for the last 10 hours. My GPS seems to be broken. The ice cap pulls our steps back after an almost unbearable effort. Sometimes I feel the ice cracking under my skis. Under me… is just 4,000m of water.
It is said that the North Pole is the most inhospitable place on Earth. The storms which impeded my progress towards the Terminus point helped me understand why. However, experience and maybe also my inner feeling led me to make the right choice for this expedition: Nahanny.
The jacket or the vest (sometimes even both) kept me away from the principal danger of a journey like this: cold.
After 250km of seeking, patience and effort, here I am in the most northern point of Earth. The horizon stretches out over immeasurable distances. Nowhere else is the sky so great and vast. Dizzy with effort and maybe also with success, it seems that the clouds are spinning with me, giving me the feeling that I’m falling into the abyss of the sky. The first step I take now is towards the South Pole. There are, however, 20,000km between us.
Maybe next winter… who knows?
Having the right equipment, adapted to the requirements of your project (even to the stage of paranoia), is one of the key aspects in staying safe in the mountains. It must be equipment you can trust, so that you can concentrate on climbing. In the farthest and wildest corners of the world, when you’re hundreds of miles from civilisation, you just can’t afford for it to let you down. It has to resist the worst abuse (preferably not carried out by the owner…) and at the same time be as light as possible. Anyway, at high altitude, light is never light enough, and I don’t think it ever will be.
I use Dan’s carefully manufactured products since 2004. From Fagaras and Piatra Craiului in Romania, to the Alps and Tien Shan, to the Himalayan ascent of Cho Oyo, 8201m, the sixth highest peak in the world, without oxygen or sherpas, on the 2nd of October 2006. I truly believe that at high altitude, on great mountains, success means coming back ALIVE. Reaching the peak is just a kind of bonus. If you don’t understand this quickly enough, you risk having a short life as a mountaineer.
To me, climbing mountains on the outside actually means climbing the ones inside me, which are much higher and harder to climb. All you can hope is that each ascent helps to you “conquer” another peak inside you… To believe that you’ve conquered Cho Oyu would be vanity. In a few months’ time, I’ll leave for a new challenge at over 8,000m. Our sleeping bags, jackets, trousers and gloves from Nahanny will keep us warm. As they have up until now. The rest… is up to us.
Two days before setting off for Cho Oyo Dan Glazer happened to lend me his winter down jacket. It was much lighter than the one produced at Cluj, which I already had in my rucksack, so I was very glad. Contrary to my expectations, I found it was very warm, despite its lightness (in a way I compared it to Valandre). It helped me a lot on my long way to the peak.
As for the sleeping bag, I must admit I had underestimated it, too: I felt incredible warm in it, even in my last camp, at 7100 m. Sometimes too warm, because in T1, at 6400 m, I frequently slept with the zipper open. But I dreamt about palm trees and the ocean.
I wish Nahanny would start making climbing boots, too, just as warm, so that the equipment will be rncomplete.
Never say "never!"
A Page in an Expedition Dairy - Cristian Tzecu, mai 2005.
...I’ve discovered an excellent way of keeping my feet warm: I put hot water in a plastic bottle container and after closing it tightly I placed it at my feet. After this everything becam really comfy: in a few minutes after I’d get in a sleeping bag I’d take my clothes off and just keep my underwear. This in spite of a temparture of no more than -8 Celsius degrees inside my tent. That’s what I call good life!
But you may ask what’s the connection of Duba’s sleeping bag with my feeling warm and comfy? Let me tell you: Duba took on his climb the bag that David used in the Everest expedition and left his NAHANNY bag down there. So, noticing that my sleeping bag is not in best shape and freezing all over, I slipped in Duba’s sleeping bag and I felt much better.
This is really surprising as this particular sleeping bag belongs to the Hibernatus category, which is with two categories under what a sleeping bag meant for a Hymalaian expedition should be. I like the fabric a lot, it wasn’t cold like that waterproof fabric (brrr) but something really gentle on my skin.
When I returned to Timisoara I had a real clear resolution in mind: I will become the happy owner of a Nahanny sleeping bag. I became its fan not through reading nice ads but through trying on where it mattered. rn
One thing is clear, it is good to stop drinking fluids somewhere in the afternoon to be able to enjoy a good sleep.
All the Nahanny equipment which I used in the 2005 expedition on the Mc.Kinley offered me the warmth so essential in extreme conditions at a very low weight.
The Nahanny EXTREM sleeping bag is very good for extreme conditions. I slept in it at a temperature of -40 ºC and it was very comfortable. I only wore a Power-dry from Rossignnol and a fleece; power-dry underpants, fleece pants; wooden socks and, very importantly, down socks. rnI chose a larger than standard dimension for my sleeping bag, at the standard down thickness, which offered me more volume, an extra comfort, so essential for long expeditions at extreme temperatures.rnThe sleeping bag has two pockets at the chest; one is quick without Velcro bend, the other one is closed with Velcro bend. I’d prefer both of them to be with Velcro band.rnAt low temperature, if the equipment is good, only your face and especially your nose are freezing. I recommend the creation of a closed but still ventilated space over the face. I hanged a scarf from my head over my face.
The down expedition jacket Nahanny provides excellent warmth for sleeping in a tent, a camp or even in extreme temperatures bivouacs.
As I have ordered more down, this made me feel too warm. So in the final ascension I used a thinner one that a German colleague lent me.
I suggest that you enlarge the opening part of the wind cozoroc.
The Nahanny down pants are excellent are excellent for bivouac. During ascension I used them with fleece pants and for an important part of the climb at temperatures of -30-35ºC I had the zipper open for airing.rn
The Nahanny mittens did great. At extreme temperatures I also used an extra pair of woolen socks and I was fine.
They have a very good catching loop which means you don’t have to worry for them when you take them off.
The Nahanny down socksare very useful when you sit in your tent. I’d increase their length to up to below the knee.
The Nahanny bag liner has a loop handle at the bottom which is very useful for taking out your equipment especially in extreme conditions when you cannot take off your mittens.I recommend using two bag liners – one for the sleeping bag and the down sock and the other one for the down expedition jacket and the mittens.
I suggest that you enlarge its diameter so that the equipment is easier to pack and than compress.
"So, you see, you haven’t attained perfection yet." We need to go continue to work together.
An alpine track which forces you to bivouac, a long stay in a tent on a glacier, a week in a canoe in the middle of the winter or the desire to be in the right place at the right time to get the perfect photo… are all occasions in which down-filled equipment can mean the difference between success and failure, pleasure and suffering.
Not long ago I was thinking about the times, 10-15 years ago, when I’d go to the mountains for two or three days with a 70 litre rucksack. In recent years, I’ve used a 50 litre one, and now I try to manage with 30 l. That would never be possible without a down sleeping bag.
I bought my first one from Nahanny, with thoughts of the cold during winter trips. But the satisfaction was three-fold: besides the superior thermal insulation, it was lighter than the old Holofiber bag, and the volume… was half! As I used the sleeping bag I realised I wanted other, similar products, and my choice has always been Nahanny.
I adapted easily to the idea of bivouacking, and the lack of a tent is now a great benefit, with hardly any drawbacks. I’ve spent many nights on (or in) snow and each time I’ve been glad that I feel good in the Nahanny bag. I never forget to send a good thought to Dan Glazer, with whom I’ve become friends. I have discovered that Dan values quality, performance and the client in equal measures. His rigour in making the best equipment for the adventurers who aim for the extremes of the Earth, has always impressed me. Also, the way he uses these peoples’ experiences in order that all the Nahanny clients can receive the best.
For me, Nahanny stands for a special man and a good friend, Dan Glazer, as well as the guarantee that his equipment will always be a sure help and will get me through the hardest trials.
I’ve known Dan Glazer, Nahanny’s designer, since the 90’s. The idea of manufacturing high quality altitude equipment was born back then in the hikes when we used to sew our own equipment. Years passed, he gathered experience and thus his products appeared. I have used them in Romania, in the Caucasus, the Alps and in the Dolomites, in summer and winter treks. I am totally satisfied and I strongly recommend them to both beginner and advanced climbers.
They were created by mountain climbers for mountain climbers.
The quality of the materials, the design and the seams is exceptional, and so is their strength.rn
Best wishes, looking forward to numerous treks,
Adrian Lăncrăngean “Negru” (former president of the Romanian mountain guides, climbing instructor, Salvamont member)
Well, in “trips” to the high mountains, you need something good. Since night falls there too, and it’s colder than on the plains, I said that it would be good to have a good sleeping bag. Light, warm and well-designed.
During the summer, the Antartic is not as cold as one may think. However, the differences in temperature between a place in the sun and a place in the shade, and between night and day, or times of the day can be so big (up to 30 degrees) that you really need a down jacket to keep you safe and happy.
The Nahanny down jacket was more than a piece of clothing for me during my adventure in the Antarctic. It became a dear, trusted friend, one I’d never leave behing.
It helped me face the wind and cold without a worry. I wore it on bare rocks, on the glaciary, in ice cages, during sunny moment and in terrible blizzards. I filled it with the smoke of my cigaretes in my lonely moments, I made it dirty, I scratched it, I tormented it, but I never left it behind.
It became part of my suffering and joy for, hiden in the safety of its generous pockets, I always kept the most precious thing I brought back with me – my journal!
Climbing is not an easy sport, especially for a woman. You need a great deal of physical and psychological strength not only in order to succeed but also in order to survive. I appreciate being able to rely on my equipment, to know that no matter what the conditions are it will helpt me return home safe and sound.
In a high altitude expedition one spends a lot of time in the sleeping bag.
My sleeping bag didn’t carry me all the way to the top but it was surely a dependable friend in times of need.
Thank you, Nahanny!
The Down used in the Nahanny Sleeping bag expands perfectly.
I am very pleased both with the EXTREM sleeping bag, which is my permanent companion in winter expeditions in the Carpathians and during the other three seasons, when I use it intensively for bike and trekking expeditions.
Hi there, Dan!
I must tell you that before Cho Oyu my altitude record was Moldoveanu, and that was the first time I used such equipment (winter down jacket, down trousers, mittens and stocks). I don’t know how others are, but this one was great.
Even on the day we got to the peak, when I wasn’t facing the strong wind, I would unzip my jacket halfway because I felt too hot. The only problem was the blizzard which would stuff snow into the outside pockets of the jacket. Everything else was just fine.
Thank you once again for everything that you and the Nahanny team have done, by moving so fast. Not only once did your equipment take me out of trouble and gave me the chance to prepare readily for my expedition.
Thanks a lot,
Mountain climbing and other outdoor activities are extraordinary activities which I recommend to everyone. Whether I go climbing or trekking, I don’t want my sleeping bag to be too thin, or too thick, too heavy, too expensive, too big or too large... and I could go on like this, but I fear I might bore you and you might run out of patience.
Well, Nahanny has the patience to listen and that shows in their products. We only have to make our choice and they’ll take care of the rest.
They suit every preference and pocket.
Who is VERTICALadventure?
We are a team of young and dynamic mountaineers, who offer various teambuilding and adventure programmes for both companies and groups of individual customers.
The content of these programmes ranges from simple games, exercises and trekking, to adrenaline-generating extreme sports such as white water rafting, abseiling, climbing, speleology, ice climbing and many more. The safety of the participants is one of our major concerns, so we can’t afford to take any gambles on equipment! The nature of our occupation requires that we use highest quality approved equipment. We often sleep outdoors because we like it and we rest well in our sleeping bags.
As you might already imagine, our favourite sleeping bags are Nahanny.
Every instructor has their favourite bag.... ours are Praktikus, Hiberantus, Extrem. I use a Hibernatus bag for the three seasons: autumn, winter and spring and I am very pleased with it. The harshest conditions I used it were -20ºC in our mountains, out in the open (all factors added). I slept as well as in my bed at home, wearing only some leggings and a blouse. That tells a lot.
Use Nahanny equipment confidently!
rnI would like to thank you for the prompt manufacturing and delivery of my winter down jacket.
I was at an altitude of 5000 m, with my normal winter equipment (which I thought was enough). I came across terrible wind and cold (-20ºC) and although I withstand cold quite well I was shivering. As soon I put on your winter down jacket my problem disappeared.
In recent decades of mountaineering (and I go for more than 100 days per year!), I’ve used various different down products. It was a great joy for me when I found the ones made by Nahanny! I consider then to be the best, lightest, most compressible, but also best for retaining their “memory”, ie when you undo them, they puff up again. They’re nice to touch and “friendly”, that is, actually really warm. From Nahanny I have a GoreTex rain coat, which is breathable. I also have a pyjama-bag which protects and raises the thermal comfort of my sleeping bag, and which is essential for me when I sleep in cabins in the Alps.
And all of these… are designed and made, not by a “manufacturer-antrepreneur”, but by a brother in passion, the passionate mountaineering man, Dan Glazer from Timisoara – who puts “heart” into his products, and makes them with us in mind – the ones who will be using the products. In many winter trips in the Carpathians and the Alps, from snowy peaks or from inside the tent, my wife and I have sent our warmest thanks to him telepathically, from inside his warm equipment: bodywarmers, jackets, sleeping bags, belt, gloves, socks. Which is what we’re doing now, here!
Once upon a time I met a family of wonderful friends; I had heard of them, people were saying they were the best in the country. A series of coincidences helped me to meet them one by one, to make room for them in my trips with me. There isn’t a single trip when I don’t take at least one of them with me.
First of all I met him, “Little puff”, I like to call him. He comes with me mostly during my long winter trips, but also in late autumn or spring on the high peaks, and he warms my dreams during the long nights in the tent. Then she arrived – Puffy, a faithful friend in days of blizzards in the Carpathians or Alps. Puffina, her little sister, is the one who comes most, she’s been with me to all the mountains, and warmed me in the cold evenings and mornings.
In the winter evenings, they – Sockies – warm my feet, without having to wait for the “central heating” in our dear home, the tent, to work. The same with Glovies. Oh, and how could I forget the youngest, Beltie – also full of down, who takes care of my back.
I’ve known them for nine years, I am very fond of them – the Nahanny family – and I wouldn’t part with any of them. In all this time, They have taken care of me and kept me warm and safe!
Thanks for the opportunity to give you my feedback about the Nahanny products. I’m very satisfied and pleased with the products I purchased from you. The down-filled jacket holds in the heat perfectly, it works as it should, exactly like the more expensive versions. I used it for the first time in 2014 on the Elbrus peak and it did very well in strong storms and extremely low temperatures (see attached photo). Also, communication with Nahanny has always been friendly, and every question is always answered with patience. I have recommended Nahanny to a lot of mountaineering partners, some of whom have already orders products from you, and are just as pleased with them as I am.
All the best,

I have the Nahanny sleeping back, bodywarmer, hammock and bivvy bag – items I have used and still use. Of all of them, I think the Nahanny sleeping bag is the best thing I’ve owned in the last 20 years. I bought it in 2008 and have used it without mercy. Besides the fact that one year (in Spain) it was compressed and decompressed almost daily, dragged through sand, dust, thorns, stones and who knows what else, I also had it with me in my winter trips. Although it now looks terrible, it still does its job as a sleeping bag. The material and the down were impeccable. The sleeping bag was worth every last penny. It’s not new any more, of course, but it’s still functional and it keeps me warm in the Austrian Alps, where I’ve been living since 2014. In conclusion, I can say that the Nahanny sleeping bag has made my life better.
