Mountain Hardwear Banshee Sleeping Bag: 0 Degree Down
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.

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
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.
