The Altmann 550 SYN can be used as a lightweight, fully equipped synthetic fibre sleeping bag, as a blanket or in quilt mode. Have you planned a quick mountain adventure for spring, summer or autumn? Do you need a featherweight companion for your next RV road trip? Then the Swiss Army Knife of sleeping bags, this 900 gram synthetic model, is the one for you. It’s particularly versatile. Use it as an ultra-light sleeping bag, a quilt system (in combination with an insulating mat with a welded edge),as a trapezoidal blanket in warmer temperatures or as a poncho around the campfire. This sleeping bag also wins points on cold evenings in front of the camper van or on the terrace of your holiday home. It also impresses with its warmth performance and is particularly suitable for use in the transitional periods. A quilt concept makes extremely light and comfortable sleeping systems possible. When combined with an insulating mat or air mattress, the insulation in the back area of the sleeping bag becomes unecessary - the thermal insulation is provided by the mat. This not only saves weight and distributes the synthetic fibre filling more efficiently, but also creates more freedom of movement and comfort. The Altmann 550 SYN has a lot to offer. Special attention was paid to a robust, long-lasting workmanship when selecting the material and great value placed on a cosy, warm two-layer construction that predestines it for the widest possible range of uses. The VAUDE Green Shape label stands for an environmentally friendly, functional product made from sustainable materials.
Eco Finish: environmentally-friendly, water-repellent DWR VAUDE products, which are provided with the eco finish icon, are water repellent yet environmentally-friendly; manufactured without fluorocarbons (PFC).

Many PFCs aren’t degradable, accumulate in the food chain and in the body and are suspected of causing cancer. VAUDE is clearly committed to the complete phase-out of PFC technology. VAUDE products with Eco Finish mark have been waterproofed without PFC.
VAUDE uses recycled materials to manufacture this product, e.g. from PET bottles. This enables them to save up to 50 % on energy and CO2 emissions as well as on fossil raw materials.

The best known form of sleeping bag. The mummy cut is characterised by its conical shape: The sleeping bags become narrower at the feet. Due to their body-hugging cut, they minimise the air that has to be warmed up and are particularly heat-efficient. The cut means that less material is used than with other shapes. This makes the sleeping bags lighter than other cuts with a comparable heat output and compressible smaller.
