Sierra Designs Backcountry Bed 800 Sleeping Bag: 15 Degree Down - Women's


Product Details

Sierra Designs redefined cozy camping with its Women's Backcountry Bed 800 Sleeping Bag so you can sleep comfortably out in the wilderness whether you're backpacking or camping out of your car. Free from heavy, extraneous hardware like bulky zippers and drawcords, this intuitive bag features an oval-shaped opening with an integrated comforter that helps the bag adapt to variable temperatures. You can tuck the comforter's sides snugly beneath you and stay warm in temps as low as 15F, or you can pull the comforter out to stay comfortable during the warmer parts of the night. Its unique mummy design has a women-specific fit and allows you to sleep on your stomach or sides as well as your back, which is excellent because most mummy bags only let you sleep comfortably on your back. Sierra Designs stuffed this bag with lofty 800-fill duck insulation that has an excellent weight-to-warmth ratio so you don't have much weight on your back when you head out on a backpacking trip, and the insulation has Sierra Design's proprietary DriDown insulation that's water-resistant and dries faster than untreated down. Sierra Designs built the Backcountry Bed's shell out of ripstop for durability and the liner out of taffeta for your comfort. This bag also features insulated pockets for your arms so you never wake up in the middle of the night because your hand slipped out of the bag and is slowly chilling. There's also an integrated sleeve for your sleeping pad so you never roll off of it during the night and wake up on the rocky ground. This sleeping bag is light and compressible enough for backpacking and warm enough for chilly nights.

Price : $ 539.95

Three Season Sleeping Bags Checklist

Down vs. Synthetic. The age-old question. Down bags pack down tighter and are a few ounces lighter. On the negative side, they are useless when wet, often take forever to dry (and many can't be tossed into a dryer), and tend to be more expensive.
Heading Out in Wet Weather? Then get a synthetic sleeping bag...period. This way, if your bag gets wet, you won't have a useless sleeping bag for the rest of your trip.
Float Camping? Again...get a synthetic bag. Be a bummer to have your bag end up in the water and become useless for the rest of your float trip.
Where Ounces and Packability Matter. Then go with a goose down bag. This is especially true if you are a bike camper, climber or camp in the desert.
