Kelty Cosmic Down 20 Sleeping Bag Video

Here I have the Kelty Cosmic 20 sleeping bag and I have it stuffed down into its stuff sack as you can see. This is about how small it gets when it is stuffed down. If you had this in a compression sack you could probably get it to be a little bit smaller. I just wanted to give you an idea of the pack size. The next thing I want to mention is the EN rating which is basically just a comfort rating that Kelty gives their sleeping bags. This is not a gender specific bag. It gives an EN rating of 21 degrees for men and the comfort rating for women is actually 32 degrees. So consider the comfort rating when purchasing a sleeping bag. So we have got the bag spread out here and you can see it is a traditional mummy style sleeping bag. So it has a nice hood at the top and it tapers down into the feet. Starting with the hood you do have a draw string at the top and the draw string goes around the top of the hood and around the bottom. So you can really cinch this thing down. When it starts to get a little bit colder you can cinch that down to trap in your heat. There is a Velcro closure at the top here. And this does two things. One, it keeps the zipper from opening when you don’t want it to open and the second thing is you can actually unzip this to vent the bag a little bit while still keeping the top of the bag secure so you don’t lose track in the night of where the top of the bag is. If you are not using this little Velcro closure you can just put it over like that and it is a little flap so you don’t have that in the way at all. It is just kind of a nice feature. If we open the bag up you can see this nice collar on the inside. You can flip this up if you want, you know, for colder nights. You can have it down. It is just a nice little added feature. And you have a {?}, too, along the inside of the zipper so you are not having a lot of cold air come through the zipper. Kelty has added a piece of fabric all the way up the zipper which makes it a little bit easier to zip so you don’t have all of that bunching and you don’t have that getting stuck in the zipper which makes it a lot easier to zip. On the inside of the bag you will notice four small red loops, one here, one here on the other side and there is actually two on the inside at the feet. That is for a Kelty travel liner or you have a wicking liner as well. Those are sold separately, but if you get those with your sleeping bag you can actually clip those on the inside of the bag and the sleeping liner and the sleeping liner are oriented correctly so you don’t have those getting messed up in the middle of the night. The zipper goes all the way down. It doesn't go completely to the bottom. It goes most of the way down to your feet. This keeps your feet a little bit warmer. And I will mention that the zipper is a two way zipper. So you can vent from the feet if you want to while the top of the bag is still zippered... can sort of vent that way. A couple of last features to mention: You have four sleeping pad security loops, two on this side and two on the other side. Now Kelty sleeping mats don’t come standard with snaps, but you can use these loops to secure it to this bag however you would like. On the bottom of this bag you do have two hang loops. And that is just for drying out the bag or hanging it when you are not using it. All in all this is a simple straight forward design, when you are looking for a comfortable, cost effective, down sleeping bag. The Kelty Cosmic Down.
