Vela (Latin for the sails of a ship) is a constellation in the southern sky. It is sometimes mistaken for the Southern Cross.

  • Therm-a-Rest® blankets are lighter and more packable than most conventional sleeping bags of similar ratings and offer better freedom of movement and temperature regulation in mild weather.
  • Down-filled draft tubes run the length of the blanket and an elasticized foot box wraps around the end of your mattress, trapping warmth and keeping the blanket stabilized.
  • Lightweight 650 fill down provides optimal warmth and compressibility. A soft, 20D nylon lining adds next-to-skin comfort and a 20D ripstop nylon shell balances light weight and durability, and is DWR-treated for maximum water and stain resistance.
