Sierra Designs Backcountry Bed 600 Sleeping Bag: 30 Degree Down - Women's

Product Details

Ever wanted to bring your mattress and comforter with you into the backcountry' Well, with the Sierra Designs Women's 30 Degree Down Backcountry Bed 600 Sleeping Bag, now you can! Ok not literally. But this bag really is the next best thing. Sierra Designs' new Backcountry Bed line utilizes what is essentially a sewn-on comforter inside of a permanent opening on the front. As you get cold, you tuck it around yourself. As your body heats up, you can either untuck it or, if things are heating up, just push it outside of the bag entirely. The best part is that your body is used to doing this naturally, provided you sleep with a blanket of some sort at home. This means that you won't be waking up in the middle of the night in order to zip and unzip your sleeping bag. To round things out, and add to the "bedlike" experience, Sierra Designs gave this bag an integrated sleeping pad sleeve so it truly feels like you're sleeping on your mattress at home.

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!
