Sleeping Bag Care

Do not use a top-loading washing machine (the agitator will destroy the baffles in the sleeping bag).
Do not use liquid soap or detergent. Do not use strong soap or detergent.
Do not use your home dryer (they have been known to melt holes in the fabric).
Do not lift your bag from one end when wet (lift the entire bag all at once from underneath).
Do not store in a stuff sack (use a larger storage sack which allows for air circulation).
Do not dry in the sun (the UV will damage the nylon).

Mountain Hardwear Wraith
This is by far the best sleeping bag on the market. I have owned other cold weather sleeping bags and they were just down right HOT in any weather except below zero temperatures. The Mountain Hardwear Wraith adapts to your surroundings and breaths so you do not get that sweaty, sticky feel you will find with outer bags. It is a perfect bag for all conditions.

Do you have a score for it? It says you have not "voted" which is your gear rating. :)

this thing is simply put - burly. I haven't taken it out yet but just setting it up in the living room and trying it compared to my well-tested phantom 0 this thing is much warmer. I can't wait to get this thing out there!
