About us

kluane logo_edited

Kluane Moutaineering was created in 1971 by outdoor enthusiasts who were fed up with the poor quality of outdoor equipment and clothing on the market.  They set out to create garments and sleeping bags that actually keep you warm, AND THAT ARE MADE TO LAST!!  Our products have been to the top of the highest mountain peaks in the world and both the north and south poles.  Our equipment was recently at the South Pole – Well Done Henry!!

Born in the imagination of some very talented people and laboratory tested,  our sleeping bags are created to have no cold spots, be light and be very compactable.

All products are 100% Canadian made in our shop in Edmonton, Alberta to the highest standards with the best materials available.

‘Thank you’ to our local down producers for being able to provide the best quality down in the world!!

Questions to ask when buying a sleeping bag or parka

If shopping for a mummy bag, does it have a foot box?  The foot box is an important part of a mummy bag.  Our foot box makes it impossible to for your foot to find its way to the cold outside shell of the sleeping bag ensuring warm feet through the night.

Whether you are a fan of fiber or down (each has it’s strong points depending on who you talk to – we are just concerned about a manufactured product that’s major selling point is that it is ‘almost as good as down’) you should give some thought as to how you are going to use your gear.  Why down?  Because we want to produce the best product possible.

How important is weight?   Will you be carrying it?  How important is it that your equipment is compressible? Will you be having to pack it?  Our bags use a minimum 850 fill  (we often have as high as 900) premium quality prime white goose down. The best available! Produced in Canada!  This means greater warmth, less weight, more compressible and longer life.

What temperatures are you expecting to use the gear in?  We make bags and parkas for all temperature ratings.  Be aware!  We do not inflate our temperature ratings to sell our equipment!  Although many factors can affect how the human body reacts to cold temperature, we have shown an honest temperature rating for our bags!

Is it blue/red/pink/purple/etc.?  If color is your concern, you can actually pick your color scheme and we will make your garment or sleeping bag to that specification.

Does it have a trendy patch or label?  Although we think our label is the coolest ever, if this is your main concern you may be looking in the wrong place.

What about fit?  Is your body not ‘average’.  We can adjust our products to fit.

A sidebar story – 

I was once in a trade show and found myself having our product being verbally attacked by a passer by who claimed one of the other displays had a sleeping bag with almost as good temperature ratings for less money.  I was surprised as no other manufacture makes a product comparable to our Logan Double.  Once the gentleman had moved on, I collected my bruised and shaken confidence and wandered over to, what I believed to be, our competitor.  I was about to start asking questions and prepared to be schooled about in what, ten minutes before, I had been so confident in.  As it turned out, I didn’t need to even open my mouth, there on display was their ‘flagship’ sleeping bag.  A massive fiber/batten filled, two foot thick, rubber coated, non compressible, 30 pound behemoth, that would fill most mini vans to the ceiling and take two grown men to fold in half, let alone roll up.

With all my faculties restored, I wandered back to our little booth.  Several others brought up the competitions bag that day.  My simple reply was ‘yes I looked at that, it would probably keep you almost as warm but it may be difficult to breath under all that weight once you got in’ and ‘I wouldn’t want to carry it’…If moving it didn’t exhaust you, sleeping under all that weight would.
