New for 2013! Weighing in at 2 lbs 9 oz., the high-performance Marmot Women’s Xenon 15 Degree Women's sleeping bag offers 3-season versatility for female backpackers. An array of features and 850+ fill goose down provide lightweight, compressible functionality for backcountry adventure.
Marmot accounts for the anatomical differences between male and female campers and hikers when constructing gender-specific sleeping bags. Increased insulation in key areas better addresses those areas where women most often experience heat loss. A tapered cut provides a narrower fit at the shoulders and a wider flare at the hips to ensure a comfortable fit and maximum thermal efficiency. The shorter lengths of Marmot's women's bags help to avoid cold spots and make certain that your body isn't working unnecessarily to heat uninhabited areas of the bag.
The Women’s Xenon 15 Degree is insulated with certified 850+ fill goose down. Fill power measures the loft, or "fluffiness," of down insulation. Marmot goes to great lengths to guarantee the 850+ certification with a battery of in-house and external verifications. 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 weakness of down insulation is that it loses much of its ability to maintain warmth when it gets wet.
Despite its lightweight construction, the Women’s Xenon 15 Degree sleeping bag makes no sacrifice with regards to performance and features. Eliminating cold spots and providing comfort, stretch tricot baffles ensure that the insulation of the Xenon 15 is distributed evenly and helps to keep the baffles intact when packing and pulling the bag in and out of the stuff sack. Ground-level side seams create a barrier against cold air and an oversized draft tube along the zipper eliminates cold spots and zipper guards help to avoid irritating and damaging snags. A contoured, ergonomic hood mirrors the design of Marmot's popular outerwear jackets, helps reduce heat loss and keeps your head warm and comfortable. Marmot's patented Trapezoid Foot Box is wider at the toes and narrower at the heels, providing a more natural fit while improving warmth and comfort.
The Marmot Women’s Xenon 15 Degree sleeping bag fits to 5'6" and includes a stuff sack and storage sack.
