Big Agnes Mystic UL Sleeping Bag: 15 Degree Down


Product Details

Strap on your feedbag and chow down some serious sleep with the Big Agnes Mystic UL 15-Degree Down Sleeping Bag. It has plenty of warmth for three-season backpacking trips and will also crush it winter hut or yurt trips. The Mystic ditches bottom insulation in favor of an integrated pad sleeve, which saves on weight and boosts warmth. As a result, the Mystic weighs less than 2. 5 pounds. Don't think for a second that it sacrifices warmth, though; it's loaded up with 800-fill DownTek water-repellent down that's arranged in Insotect Flow vertical baffles. The baffles conform to your body for increased warmth and comfort and use internal gates to keep the down in place so you don't have to deal with cold spots.Not only is the down water-repellent, but the Pertex ripstop nylon fabric is so tightly woven that it prevents moisture, like tent condensation, from seeping in. The rectangular shape means you have a few sleep-position options. Drafts tremble in fear before the Mystic thanks to the no-draft collar, wedge, and zipper that keep them locked out and your heat locked in. And, as a final touch, Big Agnes designed the Mystic so that left-zip bags can connect to right-zip options, letting you and all your stuffed animals sleep together comfortably.

Winter Sleeping Bags Checklist

Insulation Type? For winter camping, nothing is better than high-quality goose down. It's warmer and less bulky. Yes, synthetic bags are ok (and less expensive), but for wintner camping...goose down rules.
Temperature Rating? Get a bag rated to -40 degrees. Remember, just because a bag is rated to -40, doesn't mean it will keep you warm at that temperature. Always be safe and "add 10 to 20" degrees onto the temperature rating of a sleeping bag.
Don't Forget the Sleeping Pad! A winter sleeping bag is useless without a thick sleeping pad. So, if you don't already have a sleeping pad designed for winter, be sure to get one. Remember, sleeping pads are designed for BOTH warmth and comfort!
Don't Jerry-Rig a Three Season Bag for Winter Use. It's not really possible to "jerry rig" a three season bag to make it suitable for winter use. Many good three-season bags keep you warmer when you sleep without clothing. About the best you can do to "winterize" a three-season bag is to insert a sleeping bag liner. But it's still a sorry substitute for a quality four-season bag.
