Marmot NanoWave 45 Sleeping Bag: 45 Degree Synthetic


Product Details

When you're bicycle-touring cross-country, paddling for a week in the Boundary Waters, or backpacking Isle Royale, space and weight are at a premium. Bring along the Marmot NanoWave 45 Sleeping Bag, and stay comfy at night without contributing to any back-crushing weight during your daytime travels. This lightweight yet durable bag uses high-loft Spirafil 100 synthetic insulation to keep you warm on chilly summer nights. You might be tempted to think that, at less than two pounds, the NanoWave skimps on features of convenience and functionality. Have no fear; Marmot created this easily-packable bag while still focusing on the details. Blanket construction, a snagless draft tube, two-way zipper sliders, and a zipper garage all contribute to comfort and convenience. Expertly designed features like "feely" drawcords and hang loops prove that Marmot's designers have been out there and know what features adventurers like you want.

Price : $ 78.95

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!
