New for 2013! A high-performance option for 3-season backpacking, the Kelty Ignite DriDown 20 Degree sleeping bag provides the lightweight, compressibility of down insulation with all-weather reliability normally associated only with synthetic fills.
Renowned for their efficiency in retaining heat and compressible properties, the feathers and fibers of down have an incredibly soft, comfortable feel and, despite advances in synthetic materials, continue to provide the best warmth-to-weight ratio of any insulation available. The one inherent weakness of down insulation is that it loses much of its ability to maintain warmth when it gets wet, but DriDown performs differently. Employing a unique, innovative polymer application, DriDown actually creates a hydrophobic finish on each individual plume of down. This treatment results in insulation that stays dry up to 7 times longer and dries 33% faster, should it become wet, than untreated down bags. Perhaps most impressively, this allows the insulation to retain 98% of its loft which translates into maintained warmth that untreated down bags simply cannot achieve.
Box-baffle construction eliminates cold spots, keeping outside air from reaching the interior of the Ignite DriDown 20 Degree bag. A draft tube behind the 58”, two-way locking zipper, an insulated top draft collar and a contoured hood with an insulated hood baffle further enhance the thermal efficiency of the Ignite DriDown 20 Degree bag. The hood utilizes Kelty's patented FatMan and Ribbon drawcords, allowing you to adjust the top or lower sections of the hood by feel even when it's dark outside. A polyester taffeta liner provides internal comfort.
Other features found on the Ignite DriDown 20 Degree include sleeping pad security loops, internal liner loops and hanging loops.
The Kelty Ignite DriDown 20 Degree sleeping bag is available in Regular (fits up to 6' 0") and Long (up to 6' 6") lengths. Each Ignite DriDown 20 Degree bag includes a stuff sack.
