Marmot Never Winter Sleeping Bag: 30 Degree Down


Product Details

Average winter lows in Big Bend hover around 40, making it the perfect environment for the 650-fill goose down Marmot Never Winter 30-Degree Sleeping Bag. Really, though, the Never Winter's perfect for pretty much any spring, summer, or fall trip you can imagine, since it weighs just two pounds but comes loaded with features like stretchy tricot baffles, an insulated draft tube and collar, and a trapezoidal footbox designed to keep your toes warm and comfortable. Super lofty and light down doesn't insulate well if it gets wet, but the Never Summer's got a trick up its sleeve--the down has been treated with Down Defender, which helps it maintain loft and insulating value even if does get a little soggy. That's not all, though. The Never Winter comes complete with a five-baffle insulated Nautilus hood to keep your brain warm, and a face muff that seals drafts out and warm air in. Cinch everything down, and the locking drawcord will keep it there, and stay out of your face at the same time. Guards prevent fabric from jamming itself into the two-way zippers, too, while a low-profile stash pocket holds small gear that you want to keep handy at night.

Price : $ 218.95

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!
