Marmot Mavericks 30 Semi Rec Sleeping Bag: 30 Degree Synthetic


Product Details

Just because you're driving up to your campsite instead of hiking five miles into the mountains to pitch your tent doesn't mean you can't have a feature-laden sleeping bag to curl up in at night. The Marmot Mavericks 30 Semi Rec Sleeping Bag is packed with Spirafil synthetic insulation for warmth, softness, and compressibility so you stay comfortable on your camping ventures. With a modified, hood-less mummy shape that gives you a little more room in the bag, the Mavericks is just the ticket for three-season camping. A stow-away soft pillow pocket makes sure you always have somewhere nice to rest your head.

Price : $ 98.95

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!
