Marmot Lithium Sleeping Bag: 0 Degree Down
Ever tried to knit yourself a sleeping bag out of live geese' It's hardthe geese won't sit still, and they really don't like it when you try to stuff them into a little sack. If you want life to be a little warmer, lighter, and more comfortable, the Marmot Lithium 0-Degree Down Sleeping Bag is a far better option than live geese, since it's filled with pure 850-fill goose down and has a DWR-treated Pertex Microlight shell that's as light, durable, and packable as they come. Rated comfortable down to 18 degrees and manageable to 0, the Lithium is perfect for all but the chilliest winter nights, and still weighs a mind-boggling 2lb 12oz, making it Marmot's second-lightest 0-degree bag, after the Plasma 0. It seals you in snugger than a hibernating bear, with a down-filled collar and draft tube, and even uses a six-baffle hood and face muff to keep cold air from sneaking in around your head. There are stretchy baffles around the feet and head, too, for added comfort, and a trapezoidal footbox that's wider in the toes and narrower in the heels to match the shape of your feet.

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.
