Mountain Hardwear Banshee Sleeping Bag: 0 Degree Down


Product Details

Plan your trip, gather your expedition partners, and set off into the mountains with the Mountain Hardwear Banshee Sleeping Bag. The Banshee sleeping bag is worthy of the elite cold-weather camper, and as such it boasts a fully waterproof breathable shell on the outside and water-repellent down insulation on the inside. Water repellency allows this down insulation to resist moisture and maintain high loft in wet weather--a trait uncommon to other varieties of down insulation. Go deep into the mountains with this zero-degree sleeping bag and slumber soundly while nasty weather rages around you.

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.
