Marmot Never Summer Sleeping Bag: 0 Degree Down
If it's Never Summer, as the Marmot 0-Degree Down Sleeping Bag of the same name suggests, it stands to reason that it's always either spring, fall, or winter, and that any campers or backpackers are going to need a seriously warm sleeping bag. The Never Summer's certainly that, as it's packed full of 650-fill down that's been treated with Down Defender to help it stay lofty and warm, even in wet conditions. It also has features like an insulated five-baffle hood, a face muff, and a trapezoidal footbox designed to keep you warm and comfortable when the mercury drops all the way down to 13 degrees. The Never Summer's perfect for active sleepers, too, with stretchy baffles that keep you from getting stuck and claustrophobic, and locking zippers that won't come undone if you're chasing squirrels or wrestling bears in your dreams. An draft tube keeps--surprise!--drafts at bay, and the insulated collar stops warm air from sneaking out the top of your bag. Slip your essential whatevers into the small stash pocket, cinch up the hood drawcord, and ride out the icy winter nights in serious comfort.

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.
