Looking to get some feedback on what down sleeping bag to get for where I like to hike! I've searched around a little bit on the forums, but was unable to find help for both of my questions. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
- -I'm bout a 10 hour drive from the southern tip of the rockies, so I mostly go up their in the spring, summer and fall - nights will be at a minimum of 20s to high of 40s at night.
- -I started using a tarp, so I suppose things will be a little extra chilly for me, and water may also be a factor...
- -My sleeping pad is a Nemo Astro Air, which is 2.5"
- -If there is any other info I need to give you, let me know! I figure a 15* bag shall do, but, I was curious if anyone has something out there to recommend, especially with my concern for water...
Now! I'm no guru when it comes to sleeping bags, but I know down's can't or shouldn't get wet! So would it be wise to put water repellent on it before a trip? would that work? on trips longer than a week should I bring some along and reapply coatings?
Any advice you could give me bout keeping a down bag dry I'd be happy to know! I know they're cruel for prices, and I wouldn't want to waste money if I can't handle it...
Side question for all those who have seen 70* and above nights... what do yall use for those warm nights? I'm the kind of person who can't sleep unless I have a blanket to snuggle with!! Straight up, I can't do it! So anything to recommend for that would be awesome!
