Burton Dirt Bag Sleeping Bag: 40 Degree Down

Product Details

Explore more with the ultra-cozy, packable design and wild style of the Burton Dirt Bag Sleeping Bag. Designed in collaboration with Big Agnes, this sleeping bag offers the industry-leading performance you'd expect from Big Agnes with the bold, safari-inspired style that made Burton snowboards iconic in the late '80s. Its ultra-tough nylon ripstop fabric stands up to rigorous use from camping and couch surfing, making it perfect for dirt bags, shred bums, and avid adventurers. Plus, its nylon ripstop exterior features a DWR treatment that sheds moisture and prevents condensation from soaking through. Whether you're road tripping to the mountains or partying at a music festival, this three-season bag keeps you wonderfully warm and cozy down to 40 degrees, thanks to its 600-fill down insulation. The bag's down insulation uses a moisture-repelling DWR treatment to maintain loft for maximum heat-retention during wet conditions. And because it uses down insulation, you'll find the Dirt Bag is easily stowable within its included stuff sack and mesh storage bag. In fact, it compresses into a miniscule 8. 5 x 8. 5-inches for effortless packing and traveling. Other cool features include a built-in stash pocket and dual-zip design that incorporates a second Dirt Bag (sold separately) to accommodate both you and your significant other. This bag is also great as a standalone down comforter, livening up your bedroom or guest room with its bold color patterns and wild safari style.

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!
