Big Agnes Slavonia Sleeping Bag: 30 Degree Synthetic - Women's


Product Details

Slavonia might seem like a strange name for a sleeping bag (historical regions of eastern Croatia for $500, anyone') but hey, ancient Slavs and Ottomans probably slept outside a lot, and odds are good they didn't have anything as warm and comfortable as the Big Agnes Slavonia Women's 30-Degree Synthetic Sleeping Bag. Packed with synthetic Integrity insulation, the Slavonia's a perfect choice for summer camping and backpacking trips where you need moderate insulation without having to worry about going superlight. It does trim weight, however, by eliminating traditional ground insulation, instead using an integrated sleeve to hold a required sleeping pad that better insulates you from the ground and lets the Slavonia pack down small. Designed with a rectangular shape to give you more room to spread out, the Slavonia uses Insotect Tubic baffle construction, which ensures the fill retains its high loft and conforms to your body for superior comfort and warmth. It also features a pillow pocket so you don't wake up lying on the hard, cold ground with your face smashed into a rock, and has a zippered stash pocket at the shoulder so you can keep whatever you need handy all night long. A no-draft collar and no-draft zipper keep--wait for it--drafts at bay, and compatible left and right zippers can be mated together to form a double-wide sleeping bag so you and your favorite camping companion can cuddle up for warmth.

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!
