The innovative Sierra Designs Women’s Backcountry Bed 700 20 Degree zipperless sleeping bag lets you sleep in the great outdoors with similar comfort to your bed at home whether you’re a back, side or stomach sleeper. Featuring DriDown water-resistant down, this unique bag is a great option for 3-season backpacking.
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 700-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 up to 10 times longer and dries 33% faster, should it become wet, than untreated down bags.
By eliminating zippers, Sierra Designs has created a sleeping bag that’s more similar to your down comforter at home than a traditional sleeping bag, though without your comforter’s annoying ability to shift off your body in the middle of the night as you move. Get in the Backcountry Bed through the unique catenary shaped opening that’s smaller than bag width to seal out drafts even when you’re shifting inside. Once settled in, the versatile integrated comforter fits naturally around you and conforms to your preferred sleeping position while also allowing you to easily adjust for varying temperatures. Insulated pockets in the comforter provide a cozy place for your arms and hands to stay warm if you’re not cocooned down inside the bag, or tuck the sides of the comforter around and beneath you when the temperature drops to be fully ensconced; the top of the bag also allows you to tuck your head inside for insulated warmth much like a hood. A stretch cord closure system allows you to completely seal out drafts. A unique 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 while spending the night outside.
The Sierra Designs Women’s Backcountry Bed fits up to 5’ 8”. A stuff sack and storage sack are included.

Real Customer Reviews
- My favorite sleeping bag
Likes: Roomy, easy to get in and out of, keeps you very warm, let's you vent with quilt style top and foot vent, did not get cold drafts when tucked in, it's PURPLE, sleeping pad sleeve keeps everything where it is supposed to be, plenty of room in the foot box, lofts very well, the sides are like super soft walls of incredibly warm down, inside is very soft that doesn't stick to you, keeps you covered even when laying on your side, doesn't constrict you when you are laying on your side
Dislikes: Wish they didn't replace the strap with a handle on the stuff sack, mesh bag is kind of small, wish the hood had a cinch cord, sometimes your feet accidentally slip out of the foot vent, a little tight at the hips where the quilt connects (should be elastic)
- Cozy and versatile
Likes: Like the foot option to let your feet cool. No zipper is great and it really is like sleeping with a quilt blanket. Light weight , but warm.
Dislikes: None at this time.
- Fits like a glove
Likes: Packs down to nothing, very cozy and warm, foot hole is a life saver
Dislikes: Still getting used to the tapered shape
- Most comfortable bag ever! Real feel temp was 27 degrees but was warm enough in my 3 season MSR Elixir 2 using closed cell foam pad. Felt like I was in my own bed at home.
Likes: Comfortable comfortable comfortable!!!
Dislikes: Can’t think of anything yet...
