Sierra Designs Mobile Mummy SYN Sleeping Bag: 40 Degree Synthetic - Women's

Product Details

There's nothing better than crawling into your sleeping bag after a full day of hiking, and if it wasn't for the limiting nature of your sleeping bag you'd climb in as soon as you set up camp. Now, with the Sierra Designs Women's Mobile Mummy SYN Sleeping Bag you can do just that thanks to its mobile mummy design. This synthetic option from the Mobile Mummy line has a EN comfort rating of 40-degrees Fahrenheit, making the bag suitable for warm weather camping trips.Zipperless arm ports allow your arms to pop through the bag for full mobility while the stowable foot box attaches to back of the sleeping bag, leaving your feet free to walk about camp. When you're read to hit the hay, a draft collar, tube, and curtains at the armports prevent warm air from escaping. The 3/4-length zipper is located at the front of the sleeping bag to make entry and exit as easy as possible and allows you to vent the bag if you start to get too warm throughout the night. Other features include a snug-fitting, cordless hood, garment-inspired shoulder design, and a soft taffeta lining.

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!
