Sierra Designs Mobile Mummy 800 Sleeping Bag: 30 Degree Down - Women's

Product Details

The Sierra Designs Women's 30 Degree Down Mobile Mummy 800 Sleeping Bag takes sleeping bag comfort to new heights. You know where the mummy part comes from: it's a great form for a sleeping bag. The 31F comfort rating and 800-fill down make it work well for shoulder-season trips and high-altitude summer camping, and the DriDown means even if the down happens to get damp, it's treated to resist moisture and maintain warmth. Now to the Mobile part; this is where Sierra Designs has gotten quite innovative. Everyone knows how much it sucks to have to get out of your bag for that first cup of morning coffee. Now you don't have to. Sierra Designs added arm holes near the shoulders so you can perform all your morning duties from making coffee, to starting the bacon, to bathroom breaks. Just unzip the bottom of the bag and stick your legs out, then walk around like a funny-looking worm-zombie. To make sure that you're not dragging the bottom of the bag in the dirt, Sierra Designs added toggles so the bottom can be tucked up behind you while you're walking around.

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!
