NEMO Equipment Inc. Nocturne 30 Sleeping Bag: 30 Degree Down

Product Details

The Nocturne 30 Sleeping Bag sports Nemo Equipment's Spoon shape for extra shoulder and knee space for campers and backpackers. The Spoon shape ensures a sound sleep even if you prefer to sleep on your side. Stuffed with 700-fill down insulation, the Nocturne gives lofty warmth without much weight, and Downtek treats the down with water-resistant protection to keep you warm in moisture-riddled environments. Vertical Insotect Flowgate baffles keep the down in place to eliminate any cold spots. Nemo Equipment made the Nocturne's shell out of DWR-coated nylon for extra wet-weather protection, and the Osmo footbox offers waterproof protection against the condensation. The Blanket Fold draft collar tucks in for extra warmth, and the full-length, two-way zipper adds ventilation if you get too warm. There are two pockets for a watch and a pillow or puffy, and the included storage and stuff sacks add extra convenience to camping trips.

Price : $ 329.95

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!
