Kelty Ignite 0/EN 9 Sleeping Bag: 0 Degree Down
Everyone would agree that light and fluffy down feathers provide the ultimate in insulation--except when they're wet. That's why Kelty protects the valuable down in the Ignite 0/EN 9 Down Sleeping BagIgnite with a hydrophobic treatment on individual plumes to help keep it lofty and efficient. This high-tech treatment not only keeps the down drierand, therefore, warmerit also helps it to dry quickly after a monsoon-like event, so not all is lost if it does get soaked. Box-baffle construction, draft collar, and form-fitting hood add to this bag's cold-weather-defying, soporific power.

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
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
||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.
