Millet Base Camp Sleeping Bag: 23 Degree Down
Millet's Base Camp 23 Degree Down Sleeping Bag will be your home away from home whether you're camped on a high mountain pass this fall or cuddled up in a cozy yurt on a winter ski trip. Light and compressible down fill saves both pack space and weight, making the bag ideal for backpacking trips, long alpine tours, and multi-day alpine climbs. The bag utilizes v-shaped baffles to retain more heat and is fitted with an aluminum film to reflect radiant heat. The full-length side zip is available on either the left or right side, and it can be joined together with another Base Camp when you're adventuring with your significant other. All the standard features of a serious mountain bag are in-check with an adjustable hood, interior pocket, and draft tube all present.

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.
