The product manager's advice? “I recommend this all-down four-season bag to fans of mountain bivouacs, whether at medium altitude in winter or in the high mountains in summer.
The Base Camp is a good choice when you need a versatile bag for all your favorite activities, like walking and mountaineering – when you need something compact and light.” The Base Camp has all the advantages of down. Down offers an unrivalled lightness-to-thermal efficiency ratio. Weight-for-weight, you get the greatest warmth. It's highly compressible, but the down fluffs back up again perfectly. Insulation is all about volume. “Its loft means plenty of air is trapped,” adds Antoine, product manager.
And that's great because, ultimately, it's the air that protects us from the cold!

Millet gives apparel and equipment to mountaineers since 1950.
The name Millet became famous in the 1930s when the first shopping bags with shoulder straps appeared. Adapted a few years later into a backpack, the idea quickly catapulted the French brand to the top. The development of technical products for use in the mountain environment gave the brand a strong image, strengthened by the input and backing of the generation’s best mountaineers.
Alpinism, climbing, hiking, trekking, ski, fast triking are covered by the Millet range composed by jackets, pants, fleeces, softshells, technical underwear, beanies, gloves, backpacks, ropes, sleeping bags, climbing shoes and shoes.
Millet is now clearly a reference in the field of Mountain clothing, both for historical reasons and the quality of current products.
