Marmot Mavericks 40 Semi Rec Sleeping Bag: 40 Degree Synthetic


Product Details

Comfy camping trips call for Marmot's Mavericks 40 Semi Rec Sleeping Bag. Marmot crafted this bag for a cozy night's sleep, from the fuller semi-rectangular shape to the brushed lining for extra comfort. SpiraFil insulation includes warm-when-wet hollow synthetic that stays soft, compressible, and warm enough for chilly summer nights. The Mavericks also features a pillow pocket that hides away when you don't need it. The draft tube keeps the cold out, and unlike most draft tubes, this one shouldn't snag when you zip yourself in. The zipper wraps around the bag to convert into a blanket for convenient versatility.

Price : $ 88.95

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!
