The Drifter series sleeping bags are constructed of a durable, polyester ripstop shell, lined with a soft, smooth brushed polyester and filled with synthetic TechLoft Silver insulation. TechLoft Silver insulation consists of multiple denier staple-length fibers that have a siliconized finish for maximum insulation, loft, and compactness. The bags feature two-layer offset construction with an insulated chest and zipper baffle to lock heat in.
The Drifter offers a unique, tapered-rectangle design which allows for more wiggle room than a mummy bag, and more heat retention than a traditional rectangle bag - providing you the best of both worlds. If you are camping as a couple and want to snuggle up close, the Drifter bag design allows two bags to zip together creating a double bag. Even better yet, the two bags can be the same or different temperature ratings to maximize comfort for each person. The design also features a second side zipper allowing you to fold back the top for home-like comfort or allowing multiple venting options when two bags are zippered together. A standard stuff sack is included for easy transport and storage. The versatility - not to mention to eye-catching colors - make the Drifter a must-have for your next camping trip.

Since our inception in 1993 by outdoor gear designer and company founder Dennis Brune, ALPS has become an innovation and customer satisfaction leader. Founder Brune enjoyed a successful career beginning in 1979 with the technical mountaineering manufacturer Kelty. He moved from product development to sales and marketing, then to management.
Brune had a vision of an outdoor company that would deliver high-quality performance gear priced within a comfortable reach for the everyday outdoorsman and woman. In essence, premium outdoor products whose performance exceeded the expectations of their price points. This combined with a focused attention on customer service has been a winning combination.
Dennis and his wife, LaRayne, wanted to share the passion for the outdoors with their three children. The time spent outdoors are their most cherished memories, and continue to be the stories told when they're together. Brian, Adam and Sarah Kristin have their roles in the company today. The family business was redefined as each child's spouses joined the ALPS team throughout the years. The pride of passing on a passion to your children is an amazing feeling, but to pass along a passion through your children to your grandchildren is something to treasure.
ALPS headquarters was built out of and around the Brune home. In 2015, they officially out-grew their Lyon campus and purchased a 100,000 sq. ft. building in the city limits of New Haven, where the bulk of their warehousing staff and products are now located.
