Marmot Women’s Xenon 15 Degree Sleeping Bag


The Marmot Xenon women’s 15 degree sleeping
bag is light weight, packable and feature rich for your next cold weather back packing
adventure. Down Defender is a water resistant treatment
that is applied to the plumes of down used to insulate this sleeping bag. Since it is
down, you are getting the compressibility, the light weight warmth. But it actually performs
a little bit more like a synthetic bag in damp or wet conditions. Down Defender will
stay drier longer than regular down. It will dry out faster if it becomes wet and it will
ultimately keep you warmer in wet conditions. This is considered a 15 degree sleeping bag.
However, Marmot does use an EN or European norm rating for their temperatures. The comfort
rating on this sleeping bag is actually 19 degrees. So take that into consideration when
taking this bag into the back country. Along with that, it is a true women’s specific
sleeping bag, so you do have extra insulation in key areas. For example, the foot box and
across the chest to make this a true women’s specific bag. Starting up at the hood you have a six baffle
hood, which gives a really good shape and added comfort if you need to cinch that down
at night for added warmth. You have a full length two say zipper on this mummy style
sleeping bag, so you can vent the bag from the top as well as down at the bottom. If
you need to vent the bag at the foot as well you can. You also have a nicely baffled foot box and
this actually tapers in a little bit and tapers out around your feet so you have more room
and more added comfort around your foot box. Behind the zipper there is a piece of fabric
sew in to be an anti snag design. The zipper slides really easily and there is a nice draft
tube behind the zipper so that keeps cold air out. It has a really nice soft feel on the inside
of the bag and you have the comfort of that compressible 850 fill down. I have got the bag packed down into its included
stuff sack just to show you small that really packs down. With your high quality 850 down,
the Down Defender insulation and the body shape specific features of this sleeping bag,
you can be confident in your next cold weather back packing adventure. The Marmot women’s Xenon 15 degree sleeping
bag.
