Marmot Hydrogen Sleeping Bag: 30 Degree Down


Product Details

Quick, what's lighter than air, smaller than your pet hamster, and warm enough for summer, spring, and fall camping' If you said the Marmot Hydrogen 30-Degree Down Sleeping Bag, you win! We're out of prizes, but you seem like the type for whom being correct is reward enough. If you feel like getting a prize for yourself, though, the Hydrogen's one hell of a bag--weighing an ultralight 1. 75 pounds, it combines Pertex Microlight fabric and 850-fill goose down to make a bag that's rugged and warm, with thoughtful features like stretchy baffles around the feet and head for extra comfort. Down's amazing because it's light, packable, and incredibly warm, but it doesn't work particularly well if it gets wet. To keep the Hydrogen functioning at a high level, Marmot decked it out with a DWR coating, and treated the insulation with Down Defender, which helps down retain its loft even it gets slightly soggy. Dry or damp, you'll be able to cinch down the six-baffle Nautilus hood for warmth and seal the face muff around your head while the insulated draft tube keeps cold air where it belongs--outside.

Price : $ 358.95

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!
