Brooks-Range Drift 0 Sleeping Bag: 0 Degree Down

Product Details

All of a sudden a bivouac in a snow cave doesn't sound so bad, at least not since you climbed into the Brooks-Range Drift 0 Sleeping Bag. This lightweight winter-camping bag features DownTek hydrophobic down and a DWR treatment on the outside to keep your bag lofty, and your body warm. A halo collar, hood cloak, and baffled draft tube ensure you can stay toasty when winds are whipping about. An ergonomic footbox makes for a comfortable, natural night's sleep, and the internal storage pocket makes sure you always have a snack close by when you wake up hungry.

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.
