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.

Real Customer Reviews
- works great for the price
Likes: water resistant down at a great price
warm in initial testing
packs down reasonably
Likes: Warm, packs down small and is nice and light, a big improvement over my older synthetic bag. I ordered the long as I am 6
Likes: Have to caveat this that I am a new camper.
Please see what I didn't like. I cannot give the product any kind of bad review. I blame my inexperience.
Outstanding as far as compressibility and ease of packing. Very comfortable. Seemed solid construction although be wary of the zipper as it snagged easily (just need to be cautious).
Dislikes: I am 6'0", 210. The regular is too short for my comfort level. Also, movement in the bag is very restricted (yes, it is a mummy). For the entry level camper I would recommend a less restrictive bag.
Likes: light weight and proper warmth with good price.
Dislikes: left zipper could be better some times.
Likes: Great warmth while stil being very compact. Have tent camped several times in 30-35 deg weather and it's kept me very warm. Still fits easily in any pack.
Dislikes: Zipper can get stuck very easily. Just have to be careful when zipping.
Likes: Light weight and packed well into a Kelty 50L pack. Used it for backpacking Yosemite in May where weather changes at altitude and was never cold, even when sleeping in skivvies.
Very Good buy.
Dislikes: Zipper could use some improvement. Had to be careful not to snag the lining.
Likes: warm, packs small
Likes: A nice lightweight bag that compressed easily to fit in my pack. It doesn't come with a larger storage bag like the Kelty Light Year series, so the down must not need to remain fluffed to be effective.
Dislikes: No compression straps on the stuff sack like you get with the light year bags.
Likes: This bag is light and packs well. It has quality construction and the rating seems to be spot on. The new Dri Down seems to work well and for the money you get a quality sleeping bag.
Likes: Bag was very comfortable and I had plenty of room to move around in. The Temp. rating seemed to be pretty accurate. It packed down pretty well. I took this on a 7 day trip on the Allagash Waterway in Maine in September and wanted the bag warmth of down and not getting it wet and losing the insulating. The dri-down was the reason I got this bag and it perfumed up to expectations.
Dislikes: The zipper does have a tendency to snag but this was a very minor thing.
