Marmot Teton Sleeping Bag: 15 Degree Down - Women's
The Tetons are named for um, ladies, so it stands to reason that Marmot's Teton 15-Degree Down Sleeping Bag would be made specifically to keep the girls warm, with extra 650-fill down in strategic locations to turn chilly winter nights into cozy, comfy snooze-fests. Down's light and packs down to magically small volumes, but doesn't insulate well when wetuntil now. Marmot treated the Teton's insulation with Down Defender, which helps down maintain its loft and warmth even if it does get damp, so you'll be toasty even in soggy tents. It's also been decked out with all the other features found in Marmot's Outdoor series of 650-fill bags, like a snug Nautilus five-baffle insulated hood, down-filled collar, and an insulated draft tube that's designed to keep cold air from sneaking into you warm bag. There's even a face muff to seal out drafts around your head, and stretchy tricot baffles that make it way easier to dance, sprint, and rock climb in your dreams. The trapezoidal footbox helps your toes stay warm and cozy all night, and a stash pocket helps you keep handy items close by, even while you're snoozing.

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.
