Marmot Sawtooth Sleeping Bag: 15 Degree Down
The Marmot Sawtooth 15 Degree Down Sleeping Bag weighs under three pounds--that's less than 16oz for each of the three seasons you'll be camping in. Compact, lightweight, and insulated by lofty 650-fill down insulation (treated with Down Defender to keep it warm if it gets damp), the Sawtooth helps you slumber soundly spring through fall, and even on mild winter hut trips. A host of features like a down-filled collar, five-baffle hood, roomy, trapezoidal footbox, and draft-stopping zipper tube add to the light-and-warm comfort. The Sawtooth features a mummy shape that offers plenty of room at the shoulders before tapering down at the feet to keep insulation closer to your toes, which are going to be extra-warm thanks to the heat-trapping trapezoidal footbox. It's been designed with stretchy baffles to accommodate your inevitable nighttime thrashing, and a face muff to seal the warm air in around your mug. There's even a stash pocket to keep nighttime items close by, and hang loops for easy drying and re-lofting.

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.
