'The DEFENCE 4 is the most popular and best-selling all-round sleeping bag with excellent weight ratio, stuff size and performance. It is a well-established, three-season sleeping bag that has proven to be 100% reliable in cold nights both in the wilderness and in snow caves. A protection flap on the outer side of the zipper keeps out wind and wet.The outer shell is a super-light,highly resistant, microfibre nylon with fine microporous coating which makes it waterproof. There is a generous draft tube on the inside of the zipper to prevent heat loss at the zipper.

Can be used in conjunction with the MCSS Tropen sleeping bag to create the MCSS Tropen Sleeping System

  1. BrilliantReview by
    I have just spent a week in North Wales with this bag (April 2018), used along with a decent mat it will keep you warm all night. I woke up one morning and my damp clothes hanging to dry from the day before where frozen stiff, but I was toasty warm.
    Also previously used the bag along with a bivvy in early spring, again ,could not fault the quality and warmth of this bag. Well worth the investment.

  2. Best sleeping bag.Review by
    I was looking for a sleeping bag that would suit my needs. Being a keen outdoors person, I believe a good night sleep is important. I contacted Heinnie and spoke to one of the customer advisors. I got the sleeping bag ( the defence 4 ) and I haven’t been disappointed. The bag dose what it’s say on the box. No gimmicks just a fantastic sleeping bag that keeps me warm. When buying something like a sleeping bag you need something that is tried and tested. This bag meets all of the criteria in an outdoor sleeping bag. Thank you Heinnie and keep up the good work in delivering great customer service. Craig. (Posted on )
  3. good sleeping bagReview by
    fast quick delivery. thankyou heinnie, good sleeping bag.
    ,firstly to those saying they were cold all night, sleeping bags don't heat you up you heat up the bag. Before bed do the following have something warm before bed, do some star jumps, boil water and stick it in a metal drinking flask and use as a hot water bottle, or use some hand warmers. The object is to generate heat in the bag. The bag will hold the heat and does it well.

    All in all a good bag bulky but good,.

  4. Excellent bagReview by
    I like wild camping and took took the bullet and bought this bag and have to say its excellent. I took my time and read the reviews and glad I made this choice. North Wales temperature was no match for this and the centre zip action is superb, I have even used it open for me and my partner so we can just keep our feet in. If in doubt buy one you wont be disapointed. (Posted on )

  7. Awesome!Review by
    Had a budget bag before I saved and took the plunge and have to say you really can see the difference. Super warm in Febuary when away , really good prtection and central zip works perfect. No the smallest but strapped to bottom of my 72 its not heavy. Cheers guys. Ty (Posted on )
  8. SuperbReview by
    Bank holiday weekend spent in west wales in comfort , have no doubt this bag would be suitable for really cold trips, perfect using in a hammock because of central zip, glad i read reviews before and some from Austrian forces gave me confidence. Top service from HH order to doorstep was approx 22hrs, keep up the excellent work. Ant (Posted on )

    Bought bag quick service
    Bag made from quality materials but failed to keep me warm during 2 nights of camping in March UK.

    Temps well above freezing! !!!

  10. over ratedReview by
    Used in March uk & was very cold.

    Lack of neck baffle caused cold air to come into bag.

    Bags materials feel quality , the stuff sack is very strong & has plenty of straps.

    Very good zips no fear of snags , generous bag size.

    For anything 3 Celsius or below i think you would need to use bag in conjunction with carinthia summer bag tropen miss.

  13. Awsome Bag!Review by
    Have had a few bags in my time but none have compared to this!

    Extremely well made, tougher material than the others and a smooth zip.

    I wasn't to sure initially how i would get on with the face hole but no need to worry, if it gets cold enough your head goes in and you pull it tight. It keeps the moisture out and the warmth can be felt imediately.

    I can also confirm that to some degree the bag is water resistant, the rain just beaded off and i stayed dry and toasty.

    The only reason for me to get another bag is if i was off to the Arctic! Get one, you wont be dissapointed.

  14. Top bit of kitReview by
    Used on a wet and windy night in Scotland, kept me absolutely toasty all night. I was sleeping in a hammock so the centre zip was ideal. I'm 6"4 and the 230cm size was perfect, width is also good. Top marks for heinnie as well! (Posted on )
  15. Bloody brill bagReview by

  16. Top of my ListReview by
    I am very pleased with the quality of this bag, has a very robust zip, it will compliment the Carinthia Bivy bag I also purchased from HH.......Recommended. (Posted on )
  17. Amazingly quick delivery, incredible quality product Review by
    Ordered the 200 Version at 4:50pm and arrived 9am the next day! Quickest delivery even as standard. The sleeping bag oozes typical Carinthia quality and doesn't need much said about it other then its incredibly good for its size and weight when packed down inside a bergan.

    Dont be put off by what appears to be the tiny breathing hole the sleeping bag provides when fully zipped shut, its the right size when fully opened to allow your face to peek through but keep the rest of your head warm, not even claustrophobic! If you did get a little uncomfortable merely unzip, put your head ontop of where the hole should be and zip back up again and you get a snug fit and a pillow.

    5/5 for quality. The 185cm Version which was far to snug for me (6ft1 Athletic build)

    Look forward to getting it out into the true low temperatures when I head North this winter for some trekking!

  18. MintReview by
    Great bag with lots of room for those with a bit more bulk than most, warm and cosy when it matters. Thorough construction with ample shoulder room. Good all round bag... (Posted on )
  19. Good bagReview by
    Had this bag for about a year now. It is a tiny bit bulky but not heavy. Comfortable and able space inside. Slept out in -10 temperatures and been fine. It is not very clear from the description but it is also waterproof to a degree. Slept out in a light shower and the bag stayed dry. (Posted on )
  20. CosyReview by
    Recently used one of these at -5 overnight in Wales. Very comfortable and warm. Bit bulky but not heavy. (Posted on )
  21. Fantastic bagReview by
    Had this for a few days now and have been testing it thoroughly and it's a great bag. It's quite large but there is a choice of sizes. I'm 6'4" and 16 stone and it's a great fit for me with plenty of shoulder room. The centre zip is very sturdy and will last forever with a nice smooth non snag action. The bag is incredibly well made and traps air which makes the bag loft well and therefore retain lots of warmth. It is the perfect bag for all bushcrafters and hammockers as the centre zip is a blessing. I love it and can see why the Norwegian army used them. Highly recommended and backed up with great service from HH as always. (Posted on )
  22. Self DefenceReview by
    Super fast delivery as usual (thanks guys). This is a big bag and by golly it's warm. Ive bought this for hammocking as the centre zip will be perfect for ease of entry/ exit whilst in the hammock.
    The bag seems very well made with a nice high quality zip that looks like it will last forever. It's a great fit for me at 6'4" and 16 stone. Sure the bag takes up quite a bit of my pack but it's worth is for the warmth. Looking forward to my next cold weather night out.
