Recent 3-Season Down Sleeping Bag Reviews

Sierra Designs Ridge Runner 15

rated 4 of 5 stars Excellent value for a quality entry-level, down sleeping bag. This bag has come with me on all of my alpine backpacking trips for the past few years and is no worse for wear. Though this model is now out of production, I'd recommend Sierra Designs newer mummy-style bags (Zissou line), which look be a similarly great value. When I started to head out on backpacking trips for the first time a few years ago, I lusted for those top-of-the-line down bags made by companies like Feathered Friends and Western… Full review

Marmot Men's Helium

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a lightweight, premium quality sleeping bag. It sets the gold standard for three season backpacking, especially for people in a down-friendly environment like the Rocky Mountains. I've had this bag for several years, and it is still pretty much the same model. Why? Because it's hard to improve on a near-perfect sleeping bag. The bag is warm down to its 15 degree rating and then some. There are no cold spots and no drafts. That's what you pay for when you shell out three hundred dollars. Full review

Kelty Men's SB 20

rated 5 of 5 stars I would highly reccomend this sleeping bag. It was warm, and the head and foot box will always be dry. Dri-Down is an excellent advantage over the normal down. We got the SB 20 because I was looking for a lightweight, DriDown bag. I got this one because of the extra protection Kelty puts on the bags. The head and foot boxes each have a water resistant covering to help you stay protected from any condensation that comes off of a tent.  The bag was plenty warm for me, and felt good. All the zippers… Full review

Marmot Sawtooth

rated 5 of 5 stars Kept me warm in the teens. This bag lives up to its warmth rating. This bag is rated for 15 degrees and has held up to that. For its price, it packs down well and is relatively light at just over 3 lbs, or at least was when I bought it in 2005. There are probably lighter down bags now. I have used it in winter temperatures down to 10 degrees and been comfortable with no liner. A couple of nights my feet were cooler so I had to wear socks, but I think that was due to my older tent being a little… Full review

enLIGHTened Equipment Epiphany Cuben Fiber Quilt

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Light, small, warm, but should breathe better. I have only used this one time on a 50+ mile backpack trip. I therefore want to do some more experimenting so consider these first impressions. I really liked it on first sight as it was small and very light (and mine is a little over stuffed). The first few days were warm and I used it like a blanket (lots of side venting) and had no issues. I was glad to be carrying such a small and light quilt. When we got to higher elevations (Volgesang: I think… Full review

The North Face Hightail

rated 5 of 5 stars This bag is amazing, even for the ladies! Very warm, and extremely light and compressible. Great for backpacking, hiking, and comfy enough for car camping. This bag is amazing. Well worth the hefty price tag for anyone who wants to lighten their load but stay nice and toasty at night. I bought it last year via a pro deal and immediately took it out to the mountains to test it out. The bag lists its comfort temperature at -3 Celcius, or 27°F, its upper limit at -9C or 15°F, and extreme rating at… Full review

Big Agnes Pomer Hoit SL 0°

rated 5 of 5 stars Great sleeping bag. Hiked the wilderness part of the Ganaraska Trail in August 2013 with my dad. Fall weather was setting in. Mosquitoes were few. There were no black flies as weather was cool in the evening.   I like to sleep cold and along with the Big Agnes Air Core mummy pad that I purchased for this sleeping bag it was just a little too warm for me. I feel this bag would be better in for me in cold weather.  Tried unzipping the bag just partway, but the bag always ended up fully unzipped… Full review

Marmot Plasma 30

rated 5 of 5 stars Super bag, very warm to below freezing. High price very worth it. I call this bag the inferno. I bought the Plasma for its weight and its EN rating. I was surprised to find that it was very warm. I use the bag April to October with a variety of thermal underwear and very seldom zip it up all the way in the summer. I consider myself a middle of the road sleeper for temperature. The only time I recall being cold was in a blizzard when the temperature went to the mid twenties (24 degrees with midweight… Full review

Marmot Plasma 15

rated 4 of 5 stars Excellent sleeping bag. Compressed well. Light. Held up fairly well for a 50-day thru hike with only one small tear. Excellent bag. I used it for a 50-day thru hike and it held up well. It developed one small hole after a long time and I did lose a little down from it. Admittedly it did not get much below 35 deg F during my hike, so I did not test all the way down to 15. I do believe that it could take this. I never got cold on the chilly nights and only wore one layer lightweight thermals in the… Full review
