Product Details

What sounds better: a warm, cozy bed, or a bag' It's a no-brainer. And with the Sierra Designs Women's Backcountry Bed SYN 40 Degree Sleeping Bag, you can take the comforts of your bed into the backcountry. Sierra Designs' revolutionary Backcountry Bed design allows you to sleep comfortably on you back, side, or stomach with the cozy comforts of a comforter. This synthetic fill option from the Backcountry Bed line has EN comfort rating of 40-degrees Fahrenheit, making it ideal for summer camping and backpacking trips. Designed to let you get into that perfect sleeping position, the Backcountry Bed has a zipperless design, which not only reduces weight, but also makes for an easier entrance through the large catenary shaped opening. Within the bag is an integrated comforter that is designed to wrap naturally to your preferred sleeping position. Insulated arm and hand pockets give your extremities a place to stay on cold nights, and hands-free foot vents let your toes cool off if they start to get too warm throughout the night. A sleeping pad sleeve keeps the bed securely attached to your pad, so you don't wake up with your tent partner sleeping on your pad while you enjoy the comforts of the cold ground.

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!
