Mammut Altitude EXP Winter Sleeping Bag: -8 Degree Down


Product Details

Designed to perform in some of the most adverse sleeping conditions in the world, the Mammut Altitude EXP -8 Degree Winter Down Sleeping Bag will keep you comfortable whether you're sleeping on a portaledge, camped out in the resort parking lot, or waiting for the storm to clear at camp before launching a summit bid. Where the Altitude EXP really stands apart is with its ShelterTX waterproof, breathable shell, which prevents moisture from contacting the down fill, making this bag well-equipped to handle adverse weather conditions. The bag itself incorporates Mammut's Trinity construction at the head and feet, which provides better coverage while increasing insulating properties. Box construction through the body provides a more comfortable fit than standard mummy shaped bags while also adding to the bag's insulating performance. Nine chambers ensure the foot area remains well insulated throughout the night, and the 12-baffle hood protects against heat loss. The inside of the the bag features a large draft collar along with one internal pocket to store anything you might need throughout the night.

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.
