The Sierra Designs Women's Cloud 20 Degree sleeping bag borrows the innovative zipperless design of the award-winning Backcountry Bed but offers female backpacker a lighter weight, streamlined design for 3-season use.
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 the bag’s 800-fill 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 longer, dries faster, and better retains its insulating qualities when wet than traditional, untreated down. A 15D nylon ripstop shell further protects the insulation from the elements.
By eliminating zippers, the bag saves weight, reduces noise, and gives you the ability to move around. An integrated front "comforter" grants access to the bag, seals efficiently to maximize warmth, and can be folded down for venting if temperatures rise. A zipperless, self-sealing foot vent allows you to extend your feet out of the bottom of the bag in balmy weather but effectively retains heat when temperatures require it. A sleeve on the bottom of the bag lets you pair it directly to a sleeping pad (pad not included) to even better create a bed-like sleeping experience.
The Sierra Designs Women's Cloud 20 Degree sleeping bag fits to 5' 8". A stuff sack and storage sack are included.

Real Customer Reviews
- Light and warm
Likes: I have used this bag 3 times for camping in Oregon rain, snow and sun and down to about 40 degrees.
Fluffy as heck.
Blanket works wonderfully for tucking in and getting cozy or opening up to cool off.
A few things I dislike but overall have found it to be cozy and warm and I love the blanket flap - its perfect.
Dislikes: I am 5'-6 and the women's is just barely long enough for me. if you are taller get the mens size.
The widest point of the bag below the blanket is also the widest point of a woman's body and to be honest its a little snug. If the seams in that part of the bag were stretchy (like my other SD bag) then it would be wonderfully comfortable.
There is a small area under your back with no insulation. I can live with it but if you change positions while sleeping this are will end up exposed and you get a little cold. All you have to do is wake up and change positions again, but its unrealistic to think its worth saving weigh by eliminating that insulation. We cant all just lie still while sleeping strapped to the sleeping pad. If the bag were really roomy you might be able to roll around inside the bag without exposing the back - but its not - its a modified mummy and is close fitting.
One last thing - the pad sleeve fits 20" only. So if you have a bigger pad you cannot be strapped in without modifications.
