Western Mountaineering Badger Gore WindStopper Sleeping Bag: 15 Degree Down


Product Details

Get windproof protection, more room, and lofty warmth when you take Western Mountaineering's Badger Gore WindStopper 15 Degree Down Sleeping Bag to the outdoors. Ideal for spring, summer, fall, and even winters in the desert, the Badger's 850+ down insulation has the loftiest fill rating, resulting in the highest warmth to weight ratio available on the market. Gore WindStopper gives the shell remarkable windproof protection as well as reliable water-resistance that keeps the down warm and lofty in moisture. Western Mountaineering's critical thought to the smallest details makes the Badger a long-lasting and very versatile choice. A differential cut places more fabric at the lining to ensure maximum loft inside the bag, and continuous baffles allow you to shift the bag's down towards the top or bottom for more or less warmth. Hook-and-loop tabs let you pull the hood, draft tube, and draft collar farther or closer to you for customized coverage. Extra convenient features include zippers on either side, a waterproofed stuff sack, and a storage sack with a large volume that helps the bag retain its loft overtime.

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.
