The Marmot Scandium 20 Sleeping Bag is a Hybrid sleeping bag for those that can't decide between down and synthetic Insulation. This bag is the scandal you've been waiting for, putting synthetic Spirafil; Insulation underneath and 650 fill power down on top. The synthetic resists compression better than down, so what better to lay upon? The down is soft and lightweight, trapping warmth like the hero that it is, resting upon your from above. The combined efforts of a nylon ripstop and polyester shell provide the durability needed to protect both types of Insulation, so you can battle on for weeks on end in the outdoors. Warm down to 20&degF, you'll be sleeping like a baby in the backcountry.

It has a simple and sleek feel, but the Marmot Women's Spire Jacket is seriously high-tech and fully equipped for any alpine adventurebe it mountaineering, climbing, or backcountry skiing. For starters, it provides bomber weather protection via waterproof, breathable, three-layer Gore-Tex and fully taped seams. A hood is standard on any tech shell, but this gale-force, helmet-compatible head shelter features a fine-fitting ERG adjustment system and a laminated wire brim to keep precipitation, wind, or sun out of your eyeballs. The Spire has PitZips underarm vents and a zip-off powder skirt so you can go streamlined when it's not in use. Even the hand pockets have smart design behind them: they sit above a pack belt or harness and are laser-drilled for added breathability. For serious performance, a shell has to allow freedom of mobility, and of course Marmot gave this jacket its Angel Wing Movement for unhindered arm movement, imperative on a climb and always appreciated. And its hip length adds coverage, which is handy in a harness. No small thing if you've ever chafed your chin, it also has a DriClime lined chin guard. Full accommodation, well thought-out, and yet awesomely simple.
