NEMO Equipment Inc. Rhapsody 30 Sleeping Bag: 30 Degree Down - 2014

Product Details

Wake up in Yosemite and you may ask yourself if this is the real life, or is it just fantasy' Camped in the Valley, mesmerized by reality. Open up the Nemo Equipment Inc. Women's Rhapsody 30 Sleeping Bag, look up to the skies and see all those granite big walls waiting to be explored. DownTek treats this bag's light-and-lofty 700-fill down insulation with hydrophobic protection that keeps the down warm in moisture-filled environments. Nemo also equipped the Rhapsody with a water-resistant shell and a waterproof and breathable Osmo membrane at the footbox, so when you zip back into this bag, the rain drizzling down your tent won't matter much to you. What's clearly unique about the Rhapsody is its women-specific Spoon shape. This bag offers more space at the knees and elbows so you can toss-and-turn with ease, or sit up cross-legged and play air guitar to to the most epic solo ever played in the history of rock-n-roll. The hood features a Pillow Pocket for puffies, fleece jackets, or actual pillows, and there's a Blanket Fold that doubles as a draft collar or opens to let in cool air. Insotect Flow vertical baffling prevents cold spots for a long-lasting (magnifico!) performance. The included stuff sack provides compact convenience when you're backpacking, and the storage sack keeps this bag cozy so it can help you feel like the camping queen you are.

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!
