Marmot Ouray Sleeping Bag: 0 Degree Down - Women's


Product Details

Shiver is a nasty six-letter word that the Marmot Ouray Women's 0-Degree Sleeping Bag wouldn't recognize; this super-warm and lightweight bag just crushes the cold of winter without breaking a sweat. Rather than simply renaming a men's sleeping bag and tossing it out there, Marmot's engineers added down insulation right where testers said they felt the coldest, and gave the Ouray a trapezoidal footbox to heat your toes more efficiently. It also has an insulated five-baffle hood, down collar, face muff that seal up tight so your brain doesn't freeze during the frigid mountain nights. That's not the end of it. The Ouray also uses stretchy baffles that let you move around comfortably, and has a trapezoidal footbox that's designed to keep your toes extra-warm when temps are extra-cold. An insulted draft tube prevents cold air from sneaking in through the zipper, and ground-level side seams help prevent all your hard-earned warm air from sneaking out. There's a little stash pocket, too, so you can keep your essential whatnots and thingamajigs close by, and two-way locking zippers so you don't come undone in the middle of the night and wake up hypothermic.

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.
