User Review: Marmot Couloir
Fill: 800 down
Temperature Rating: zero F
I avoided down for years. I used heavy and bulky synthetic fill bags. I accepted their shortcomings as normal. I kept reading about how great down was and since my 10 and 20 year old synthetic bags were getting thin I decided to try down. I did a lot of reading and decided on Marmot. I got the Arryo first and loved it so much as a summer bag I got the Couloir for a winter bag. Wow what a difference!
I have camped in blizzards in Colorado and Wyoming and slept hot. This is a warm bag.
I was in camping in a blizzard where I was roaming around camp and getting cold fast. Between the wind and snow it was cold. Temps dropped into the teens. I wore a lighwteight MTS crew neck to bed and crawled into the Couloir. 5 minutes later I had to lose the shirt as I was hot. Slept warm. Really warm. Down warm.
A good compromise of lightweight, stuffable, and cost.
I also liked how Marmot fills down bags here in the US of A!
