Kelty SB 35 Sleeping Bag: 35 Degree Down - Women's


Product Details

Take a moment to appreciate the Kelty Women's SB 35 Sleeping Bag when you wake up to a steady drizzle on your next summer backpacking trip. 800-fill down insulation offers an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio that'll keep you surprisingly comfortable in cool temperatures, despite the fact that the entire bag weighs a little over one pound. The insulation's DriDown treatment repels moisture so the down maintains warmth in rainy weather, and it also helps the bag dry faster in case the down gets wet. Head-2-Toe Dri waterproofing treatment on the shell offers extra protection at the head and foot to help keep you dry in case water seeps through your tent at night. All of this fantastic protection only weighs a little over one pound, which is fantastic for all you lightweight backpackers out there. Kelty built the shell out of nylon ripstop for lightweight durability, and a softer taffeta lining keeps you cozy all night long. FatMan and Ribbon drawcords let you cinch the thermal-comfort hood across your head, and the top draft collar and draft tube along the zipper prevent any cold air from creeping into the bag. The toebox has a roomy design so your feet don't feel scrunched, and the wider girth at the shoulders enables a better night's sleep. Kelty included a stuff sack as well as a mesh storage sack to prolong the bag's life when you aren't using it.

Price : $ 299.95

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!
