Founded in 1941 by Akira Yokota, the company’s name “Nanga” originates from the Himalyan mountain Nanga Parba, which stands above 8,126 meters, rendering it the ninth highest mountain in the world.
Notoriously formidable to ascend and with an equally prohibitive death toll, the mountain has come to be nicknamed Killer Mountain.
Deriving its inspiration from the endurance and fearlessness necessary to take on such a mountain, Nanga continues to strive to produce only the highest quality in outdoor gear.
For over 74 years Nanga has perfected the art of creating products that can stand the test of time, activity, and climate conditions. From down sleeping bags to lined jackets and using only the best textiles and feathers, Nanga has built an unsurpassed reputation among athletes and outdoorsmen alike.
Whether you consider yourself a camper or climber, amateur or professional, Nanga’s renowned Japanese quality and design standards are up to the task of accompanying you in “comfort and a sense of safety.”
Nanga believes that no detail is too small consider, and quality control makes up the very foundation of the Nanga philosophy. The latest collection of down vests, sleeping bags, and coats evokes a harmony of outdoor endurance and timeless composition, with no component overlooked.
By ensuring that only the best makes it onto the backs of its devotees, Nanga makes even Killer Mountain a more than achievable feat.

Nanga Takibi Kake-Futon Down Blanket Review
Are you interested in purchasing outdoor gear that you can use while you are camping?
This blanket, which is effectively a large sleeping bag, is designed with a kevlar polyester mixture that will help it last for years of outdoor adventure. These materials are designed to be not only be durable, but there are two layers of fabric that can easily keep you warm at night.
This blanket, which literally translates to “top blanket” in Japanese, is an olive green on one side and brighter green on the other. It is also available in other colors/flavors, so if one appeals to your style/setup more, there are plenty of options to consider. Grey and red are other color options that are worth considering for most.
The Nanga Takibi Kake-Futon Down Blanket can also be washed when it is dirty, which makes it more convenient for those who camp often like myself. The top of the blanket is also made out of a Kevlar fabric that is durable enough to work as a flame retardant on the material. This will allow you to relax by the fire at night without worrying about sparks catching fire. If you enjoy sitting around a campfire as much as I do in the cold weather, the Nanga Takibi Kake-Futon blanket is an absolutely golden piece of gear to own.
In general, this is a blanket that is quite large, yet the weight will surprise you; it’s literally nothing. It is about 53 inches by 75 inches, so it will cover your body with ease, even taller individuals. The lining of this material is designed with 100 percent duck down, which will give the material about a 10 percent degree of water repellence that is helpful if you are caught in the rain. The other side of the lining features a nylon construction to add a rock-solid water-resistant nature.
The blanket’s duck down is very soft and luxuriously comfortable which makes taking in a quick nap to a good night’s rest an absolute breeze. No matter if you’re camping, cozying up to the fire pit, or just star gazing at night, the Nanga Takibi Kake-Futon Down Blanket is up for any outdoor task. When I’m not spending time outdoors, the Nanga Takibi Kake-Futon Down Blanket has found its way on my couch, as one of my favorite blankets to grab during the colder fall and winter months.
