The lightweight NanoWave 50 Semi Rectangular Sleeping Bag is perfect for summer backpacking! Packing down small and weighing just 1.8 pounds, the NanoWave 50 allows you to leave your bulky 3-season bag behind!
The Marmot NanoWave 50 Degree Sleeping Bag is an excellent balance of price and performance. You can use this bag in a lot of different ways. So it makes it extremely versatile. The main use here would be warmer weather camping and backpacking. It has got a 50 degree rating so, you know, in summer, early fall, late spring this would be a great bag for those warmer temperatures. But I can see this being excellent for a travel sleeping bag. It packs down to be extremely small. So taking this overseas, taking this traveling with you, using it in hostels, using it camping, backpacking, this would be just a great option.
You have got a semi rectangular cut here. So it is not a traditional mummy style sleeping bag, although you do have a hood and although it does taper down into the foot box a little bit. You have got a zipper all the way around to the other corner. So that makes it great for using in a variety of different ways, whether you are just using it as a big blanket or whether you want to zip it all the way up and kind of batten down everything and make it really warm.
You have a wider cut with this than most other mummy style sleeping bags. So you have got some material on the outside here. It is like a taffeta plain weave material. It is going to hold up really well against moisture. So you could even use this as an over bag over top of another sleeping bag to make a really warm just really great system. So if you have got, maybe, a lower temperature sleeping bag that you, you know, don't use very often throughout the year and then when you are out in the summer you could use this one, in the coldest of temperatures you could pair them together and just have a really warm system. So I can see this bag being great for just a variety of different conditions.
The fill here is synthetic material. That this really great against moisture, against humid conditions. So in the summer when it is hot and humid, the bag may take on some moisture and that spyrafill proprietary Marmot material is definitely going to hold up to that moisture. If it become wet, it is going to dry out really quickly. And along with that, the material here is nice and breathable. If you are in the bag and if you are warm or sweating a little bit, that material is going to wick away the sweat. So that just makes it really great.
But just to talk about all the other features here. You do have a hood on the top. So you have a couple of different baffles here. So it is definitely a nicely shaped hood. If you need to use all of the warmth that this sleeping bag offers, you can really cinch down the hood. There is a draw cord on the bottom that is a stretchy draw cord. It is going to cinch in around your shoulders and around your neck. And then you have a draw cord in the top that is a different material. So you can definitely pick and choose which one you want to cinch down. But a nice hood there.
A nice zipper. You have got a draft tube behind the zipper. There is even a more durable material behind the zipper to prevent on snags. And, again, that zipper goes all the way around to the other side.
There are a couple of different sizes that this bag comes in, so definitely take a look at the size chart to see what size is going to be most comfortable for you. But, again, with that semi rectangular shape, you are going to have a lot of sprawling room and a lot of comfort and with those sizes, this bag weighs in under two pounds. So even with that synthetic material it is still really lightweight and it is very, very packable. And with the pack size, Marmot includes a compression stuff sack. So that adds a lot of value to this already value conscious sleeping bag. It has got compression straps on the sides. And, as you can see it is a pretty small stuff sack. So all you have to do, stuff the sleeping bag down inside and then pull on these straps. It eliminates the need to buy a separate stuff sack for the sleeping bag. If you are traveling with it, if you are trying to save a lot of space, this is going to be perfect.
So with all of the different features, all of the different ways you can use this bag, it is the perfect addition to your camping gear.
It is the Marmot NanoWave 50 Degree Sleeping Bag.
