Great backpacking bag. I've been camping for 15 years,…

Summary

Great backpacking bag.

Pros

  • Packed size
  • Weight
  • Warmth

Cons

  • Not for Arctic conditions!

I've been camping for 15 years, but this is my first serious backpacking bag and it crushes all my expectations. The cheap mummy bag from the big box store wasn't cutting it anymore.  I haven't tested it down to its rating yet, but it was very comfortable down to around 30 degrees.  

It packs down pretty small, is very light, and I can sleep comfortably without a shirt. I like the foot vent also. I've only taken it on two weekend trips so far, so durability remains to be proven.

Overall, very happy with this purchase. Ultralight backpackers might be more picky on the specs, but made my budget happy too.

Manufacturer's Description

Designed to excel in a variety of overnight situations, the award-winning Zissou 12ºF will keep you warm and cozy wherever you camp. Stuffed with 700-fill DriDown insulation, the Zissou 12ºF stays drier ten times longer, lofts higher, and dries faster in the presence of humidity, rain, or sweat.

Simply put, DriDown represents the evolution of down insulation.  Regular down is treated with a molecular level polymer to create a hydrophobic finish on each individual down plume.  This finish allows DriDown to stay dry longer, loft better, and dry faster than regular down, keeping you warmer in any environment.
