Sea To Summit Spark SpII Sleeping Bag: 35 Degree Down


Product Details

The Sea to Summit Spark SpII Sleeping Bag is ultralight for backpackers, racers, bicyclers, and alpine climbers. Primarily focusing on giving you the lightest bag out there, Sea to Summit stuffed the Spark with 850-fill down for the best possible warmth-to-weight ratio. This bag's Pertex Quantum shell is windproof and prevents the down from breaking through, and the smooth nylon lining adds some durability. Going beyond an ultralight design, Sea to Summit added its Ultra-Dry Down treatment to help this bag resist moisture and enhance your comfort regardless of the conditions. The Spark SpII has a contoured mummy shape to closely fit your body while you sleep. Its full hood wraps around your head to eliminate the possibility of waking up with freezing ears, and the 1/3-length zipper on the left helps maximize warmth. The Spark compresses so small that Sea to Summit had to re-engineer a new compression sack for it, ending up with a sack that can fit in the palm of your hand. So when you get this bag, you might be able to stuff your pack with a few extras even if you are a minimalist.

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!
