Nice down sleeping bag.

Postby monkey » Sat Aug 04, 2012 6:17 pm

Hey, I am looking for a down sleeping bag rated at 0 degrees or below. Lightweight. 800+ fill down. Price is not a concern, mainly I want light and warm. Something to keep me warmer this winter in the cascades.

If you have any recommendations or products to avoid, I would love to hear them.

Thanks,

Matt

Couldn't be happier with both of my WM bags - I'd recommend getting the burlier/more weather resistant shell with whatever you end up with, especially in the cascades where moisture is more of an issue than down here in the Sierra-Desert. FWIW, my Antelope GWS is rated at 5 degrees F, but it lofts as much if not more as my buddy's FF 0 degree bag, and I'd imagine the 5 degrees is conservative. For longer stays out, consider a vapor barrier to keep the down happy, the tougher shell means it doesn't breathe as well.
