Brooks-Range Drift 30 Sleeping Bag: 30 Degree Down


Product Details

The Brooks-Range Drift 30 Sleeping Bag is designed with one thing in mind, to keep you warm and comfortable when you're sleeping. This bag features 850+ DownTek goose down that's treated to withstand moisture and retain loft. The nylon outer shell is given a DWR treatment, so the dew on your bag won't leave you crawling into a sopping mess the next night out. A baffled draft tube helps keep cold air from getting in the cracks, and the ergonomic footbox makes sleeping naturally that much easier. An internal storage pocket lets you tuck your music player away when it's time to conk out.

Lightweight Sleeping Bags Checklist

Sure It's Warm Enough? Lightweight bags are meant for use in weather between 30-50 degrees. But, remember, it's always prudent to add on at least 10 degrees to the bags rating. Thus, a bag rated to 40 degrees might only keep you warm in 50 degree weather.
Down or Synthetic? Each have their advantages. Down is less bulky and weighs a few ounces less. Synthetic costs less (usually) and is easier to dry - you can just toss it in the dryer.
Don't Forget the Sleeping Pad! A sleeping bag is useless without a sleeping pad. So, if you don't already have a sleeping pad, get one. For lightweight sleeping bags (thus used in warm weather), you don't need a super thick or winter-style one.
Ideal Uses for a Lightweight Bag. Where you know...for sure...that the temperature will stay at least 10-15 degrees above the sleeping bags rating. And, where every ounce and cubic inch of space is at a premium. Lightweight bags are often used by climbers and bike campers/travelers. For backpacking in the mountains, a lightweight bag is NOT recommended!
