No, this is 800 fill down wrapped in 20D Nylon, it will lose some loft (and warmth) in humid environments, and if the bag gets wet, it will collapse and cease to insulate. The Fabric may bead the occasional water droplet, but not reliably.

Check out the Marmot EQ series for bags wrapped in the waterproof/breathable Membrain fabric, or the Mountain Hardwear Ultralamina series for Synthetic insulated bags that will retain warmth when wet.
