We are taking a look at the Marmot Sawtooth sleeping bag. This is a mummy bag that is filled with 650 fill down. So you are getting a really good quality sleeping bag for the value. It is filled with Marmot’s Down Defender which is a treatment that is applied to each plume of down giving it a water resistant coating. Down Defender is going to stay drier longer in wet conditions. It is going to keep you warmer should it become wet and it is going to dry out faster than traditional down. Marmot gives an EN or a European norm rating for their sleeping bags. And although this is considered a 15 degree sleeping bag, their comfort rating is about 28 degrees Fahrenheit.
And a lower limit rating is closer to 15 degrees. So take that into consideration when taking this into the backcountry. This is a true mummy style sleeping bag, it’s going to taper in at the feet and you have a fully baffled hood. But it should be mentioned that this is Marmot’s widest cut mummy sleeping bag in their line. So it gives you a little bit more room to move. Starting at the hood you have a very comfortable, fully baffled hood with a drawcord on the top and the bottom. So on cold nights you can really cinch that down for added thermal efficiency.
Around the collar of the sleeping bag you do have another point of adjustability. So if you want to just cinch that down around your torso or around your neck and not have the hood over top of your head, you can cinch that down as well. Again, really soft, comfortable fabric around the collar. You have a full length zipper that is a two way zipper. So you can really vent the bag down at the bottom should you need to have some extra venting.
And there is an anti snag design. So behind that zipper there is a piece of fabric sewn in there so you don’t get snags and a draft tube so you don’t get cold air coming through that zipper. I have got the Sawtooth packed down into its included storage sack. And I can see if you have a stuff sack with compression straps on the side you can even stuff that down to be a little bit smaller, just to give you an idea of that 650 fill down. With its Down Defender and roomy cut, the Sawtooth is going to give you confidence of a good night’s sleep on your next back country adventure.
It is the Marmot Sawtooth sleeping bag..
