Big Agnes Mirror Lake 22
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Mirror Lake 22 from Big Agnes is a women's specific sleeping bag that is perfect for those early autumn bomber's. With the new Insotect flow baffle construction utilizes vertical baffles that flow with your body for more rapid and uniform body heat distribution. There is no doubt the Mirror Lake will extend your summer season just enough for a couple extra summits or trips to the woods.Insotect Flow is a flow-optimized insulation system that delivers uniform heat distribution and natural body contouring through its revolutionary baffle design. Flow Construction eliminates lateral and vertical down shifting by using vertical chambers with Flow Gates to regulate fill positioning and density. Strategically placed Flow Gates minimize vertical down shifting while vertical chambers minimize lateral shifting. With continuous vertical Flow chambers in place of traditional side seams, Flow bags eliminate potential cold spots which can occur with side seams. Vertical baffles now flow with your body for more rapid and uniform body heat distribution.
Shivering's crappy enough if you're inside and can take a bath to warm up, but it's ten times worse if you're outside with no prospect of getting feeling back in your toes 'til morning. Big Agnes spent a shivery night once, and had such a miserable time that it decided to design the Mirror Lake Women's 25-Degree Down Sleeping Bag with 600-fill water-repellent DownTek down to keep you warm during spring, summer, and fall camping trips and on winter hut trips. Not only is the down water-repellent, but it's laid out in vertical baffles that conform to your body for increased warmth and comfort, and the baffles have internal "gates" to keep all the insulation in place, preventing cold spots. The Pertex ripstop nylon shell's water-repellent as well, not to mention breathable. Like all down, DownTek is valued for its high loft, light weight, and compressibility, which provides serious warmth at a light weight; in fact, the Mirror Lake weighs just about 2. 5 pounds so it won't slow you down if you've got serious ground to cover. The mummy shape also offers a high warmth-to-weight ratio, especial if you factor in the drawstring hood, no-draft zipper, and collar that keep warmth in and unpleasant cold out. Big Agnes' left and right zippers mate together, too, so you can grab bags with opposite zips and make a doublewide, extra-roomy bag for two.
Traditional Mummy bags deliver value and comfort in a lightweight bag. Budget minded backpackers and dirtbags on the dole will want to get hooked up with the Big Agnes Mirror Lake +18 Down bag which is insulated with high quality down and constructed with Insotect Flow, patented technology. If you're in search of a lower priced mummy shaped bag constructed with top notch, lightweight materials, these will help you travel fast and light.
