Working with one of the leading suppliers of weldable waterproof bag fabrics, we have developed an extremely durable 840 Denier plain Nylon with a TPU coating on both sides. It comes with a 100m hydrostatic head, which ensures full immersion protection to extreme depths. This fabric is great where long term durability and protection are the number one priorities.
All our waterproof zips come from TIZIP based and manufactured in Germany. Founded in 1998, the TIZIP waterproof zipper is a combination of several unique ideas and new technical approaches for making a waterproof and airtight zipper. This is the first zipper system which can replace the well-known metal tooth dry zippers, which have been in use since the early 1950s on dry bags and diving suits.
We use the MasterSeal 10, which is made from high-strength fabric coated with thermoplastic polyurethane. The extra strong plastic teeth are fixed on the top and bottom of the zipper tape. The zipper’s coupling elements keep the sealing edges tightly sealed together when the zipper is closed. It is easy to pull and more flexible than any other waterproof zipper. They are pressure tested to 500mbar with a cross breaking strength minimum of 200 N/cm.
In the real world this means we are confident you can take one of our waterproof bags underwater to at least 30m, perfect for exiting a submarine torpedo tube.
The main compartments on the Piteraq Hardware waterproof bags (Immersion) are not sewn or glued, but the parts required for a bag are firmly joined by means of high frequency welding. This creates a waterproof and extremely durable connection as strong as the fabric. Only industrial standard high frequency welds allow for high seam strengths and excellent waterproofing within narrow manufacturing tolerances. This quality standard cannot be attained with other types of weld.
The 2D welding process is used for flat areas such as the reinforcement patches located under straps and handles. The 3D welding process is used for manufacturing the complex shapes that make up the Piteraq Hardware bags.
All bags showing this symbol are suitable for full water immersion. We always guarantee our waterproof bags can go down to depths of 30m below the surface and keep the contents completely dry. If you need a bag to go deeper than this, get in touch and we can discuss which one is most suitable
Piteraq Arctic Bedding HDRegular price £135.00 Save £-135.00
Arctic Bedding is a concept first developed by Norwegian, Sjur Mørdre, for a South Pole expedition. Working with Sjur, Piteraq Hardware has develop this concept further to reduce vital weight, improve functionality and maintain durability.
Developed from the standard Arctic Bedding, the HD version is wider and deeper allowing for larger mattresses to fit inside, it is made from a 210D Nylon for increased durability and it comes with three external zip accessed pockets and one large Velcro accessed pocket giving additional storage options, perfect for items needed during short breaks or on the move.
The purpose of the Arctic Bedding HD is to contain the essential items for sleeping and cooking in one simple to use fast access bag while pulling a sled. Operating in extremely cold environments requires you to be efficient in the setting up and taking down of camp. Everything is kept together in an organised manner with the ability to take the whole bag directly from the sled to the tent and be set up in a matter of seconds.
The cover is shaped as a mattress with a longitudinal zipper on three sides. The cover fits one or more inflated mattresses up to 67cm wide. Above this there is room for the sleeping bag, a bag with extra clothes and cooking utensils. With your tent set up, the Arctic Bedding HD is simply pulled inside. Open the zipper fully and the lid can be rolled away, leaving the mattresses, sleeping bag and other items available for immediate use. During travel, the Arctic Bedding HD is tied to the top of the sled with bungee straps (not included).
We do not recommend lifting or dragging heavy loads with this bag. It has been designed as part of a gear storage system operating between a sled and the floor of a tent
