Price Paid: can't remember but was on sale at REI it was under $200.00
Good, warm bag for winter camping down to single degree temps as long as you have a good pad. Waterproof covering kept bag dry from condensation that formed on tent and dripped onto bag,
- 2 pounds
- Waterproof coated shell
- Packs small
- A little tight in shoulders
I've had this bag for over two years now and have used it in all 4 seasons. Used this bag for spring and summer trips in Alaska where temps at night went down to the mid 30s. The bag was too warm for me so I had to open it up to control temp. I also used it in early winter in both Alaska and Washington state were temps ranged from 10 to 20 degrees at night and had no problem. The draft collar worked to keep out drafts.
The waterproof coating worked great. The drops of water from the condensation that formed on the tent just roll off and never soaked into the bag, even when my bag was up against the tent wall my bag never got wet.
I have big shoulders and the bag was a little tight. Overall length was good, the foot box was big enough for my feet to move around in. The zipper worked well, never snaged on the fabric when using the zipper from inside the bag or out. Came with a stuff sack, but I purchased a compression sack that made packing the bag even smaller.
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
A premium backpacking bag for wet conditions, the REI Igneo Sleeping Bag features REI's double-protection design, which uses both water-repellent down and waterproof/breathable fabric panels. With a European Norm (EN) lower-limit rating of 19degF, this bag is suitable for 3-season use. REI double-protection design combines a polymer-coated down fill with waterproof/breathable fabric at the hood, sides and footbox, the areas likely to touch a damp tent wall. Water-repellent 700-fill-power duck down offers superior loft and warmth. Ripstop nylon shell also features a durable water repellent finish to further protect the down fill. Performance fit keeps weight low and thermal efficiency high. REI in-the-round design puts vertical baffles in side walls to wrap you in warmth and create a better fit than bags that use only horizontal baffles. Contoured hood, insulated face muffler and full-length draft tube all work to keep warmth in. Differentiated hood and neck drawcords simplify adjustments; antisnag zipper works smoothly. Any REI backpacking bag can be zipped to any other REI backpacking bag; women's bags zip on the right, unisex on the left. The REI Igneo Sleeping Bag includes a nylon stuff sack and a large cotton storage bag. European Norm (EN) is an independent third-party temperature rating, allowing accurate comparisons across brands with other EN-rated bags.
