Is there enough room on the inside of this to wear 3 layers of fleece to bed without compressing the fill?

Responded on

I have this bag for many years. I am 5"11 and 200lbs. I have worn base layers and 200 weight fleece and have still had room. I do own a long which has a little more room.

Pro's and Con's

Well, I just took this bag up to Alaska for a long hunting trip. It wasn't really that cold - coldest it got was probably mid 20's at night. But I have a tendency to get cold, so I wanted to have a little overkill. And that I did. I stayed quite warm at night, sometimes too warm. And that brings me to one of the con's - ventilating it was hard. I put the zipper down, but would tend to get pretty cold letting in that much air. But if I zipped it up, it got a little on the warm side. Not a big deal, but if you're not going into some pretty cold weather, you don't need this much bag. It comes with a small stuffsack, but I would've appreciated it if it had come with a compression sack as well. It can compress a good bit smaller than the stuffsack size, but it won't stay that small without constant compression. Being down, you must keep it dry. I lucked out on this one as several of my companions got their bags really wet one night and suffered for a couple nights because of it.

I currently have a +15 down bag that I use for Spring/Fall backpacking in the mountains of NM and CO. I'm considering doing some winter backpacking and was wondering which of the Marmot down bags (Lithium, Col EQ, CWM EQ) would be best. The Lithium at 0 deg wouldn't seem to be a larger enough temperature difference to justify, and the CWM might be over kill. So, I'm leaning towards the Col EQ but, I wanted to get someone's opionion. Also, I tend to be a warm sleeper.

I wouldn't get any closer than fifteen to twenty degrees difference between bags. That's actually too close. I've been using my minus five degree North Face bag for quite awhile with warm winter results but a minus twenty degree bag would be even toastier. I think the Col EQ would be an excellent choice for winter camping in the mountains anywhere up to timberline. Enjoy!

What is the best (least impacting) way to store my bag at home?

Best Answer Responded on

Store it in the larger storage sack, not the stuff sack, or hang it in a closet if you've got the space. Keep out of anywhere damp.

Great Bag

Excellent warmth, roomy to keep extra gear like boot liners and water bottles. You can tell this bag will last, the stitching/finish is high quality.

Great Bag

This is an excellent bag. My friend who was 6'6" said it was a little small for him and he was using the long. Also it is definitely too warm for year round any conditions weather. If you sleep with it unzipped than you should be ok in warmer conditions, but other wise this is a excellent winter bag.

winter shminter

Although this is a winter bag i just got done camping for 6 days in moab and it still worked fine, just slept with it open and around me and it is amazing . For winter trips though it is pretty Superior to most. When zipped up with the draft collar properly snug it becomes a toaster.

Ohhhh yea..

I love this bag! This bag kept me amazingly toasty on a winter backpack trip. After my first night in this bag I slept so well I couldn't wait for bedtime the next night just to get my bod into this awesome bag! I used a medium compression bag and got this bag about as small as a beach ball. Worth every penny!

Marmot Col EQ Sleeping Bag: -20 Degree Down

Nice, warm, super puffy down bag. Haven't pushed the -20 limit, but at 10 above I had to open the zipper. Quality materials and a good zipper that even I haven't managed to screw up. I fit mine in a granite gear size large compression bag and it makes it a nice, rock hard size. http://www.backcountry.com/store/GRG0005/Granite-Gear-Round-Rock-Solid-Compression-Sack.html Good setup.

Superwarm

I got this for my wife to use because she gets cold easy. It is super compressible and lightweight. Marmot knows what they're doing.

Very Good Bag

I have used this bag at -25c and stayed nice and warm with the exception of my toes ( a little cool) very good loft and packs small. I love this sleeping bag. not much down on the bottom of this bag so make sure you have some good insulation under you.

oh yea

buy this bag end of story
where this bag distinguisned its self is when my old bivy failed leaked like a sieve in 33 deg rain then the temp plunged latter on that evining the bag iced up some but very little and my body heat disipated most of the moisture at no time was the goose down compromised at no time was I uncomfortable i diddent evin know the bivy was leaking untill morning
this could have been a survival situation
its a thin line between a cool adventure and a real nightmare

Super Warm

I spent the night on my buddies apartment room floor the other night and this thing kept me so warm I was sweeting. It was however around 72 degrees inside. The night after though I spent above treeline on a 14er in the winter. It was about -25 outside and I slept like a baby in nothing but my boxers. Plenty of room for my waterbottles and clothes in the sack. A really really great, warm bag. Nothing beats marmots down!

Great bag!

I love this bag so much! After camping in a lean-to last winter in -15 degrees Fahrenheit weather I was sold. Having to take of layers when its that cold is so nice. The hood has plenty of room and the pouch hear the hood is a nice touch. this bag is great and defiantly worth the money

Excellent Bag

I just bought this bag for my wife. I have had one myself for 5 years. I used it on an Aconcagua climb (sleeping at 19,800ish), and have used it on other climbs and several winter camping trips in northern Minnesota.

The bag is very warm. I recommend the Long size for my height (6'2") so you have enough room to stretch your toes. It has good space in your torso area so you don't feel restricted in it.I chose this bag over the Marmot CWM (-40 bag) because it's significantly lighter, and if it's really really cold out you just wear more clothes to bed.

The owner of the climbing guide company I've used, Phil Erschler, told me he uses that bag everywhere in the world, from Everest to Vinson in Antarctica. He said on Everest at high camp maybe he sleeps in his down suit too. But I agree with his opinion that the weight/space savings of this bag over the CWM make a lot of sense.

I love the bag and would recommend it to anyone. Worth every penny when you're sleeping somewhere cold.

how waterproof is this bag? I know the shell material is waterproof but are the seams taped?

Best Answer Responded on

This bag is "waterproof" to a point. It will keep you dry in a condensation situation. It doesn't take the place of a bivy sack. The seams are not taped but rather sewn through like most other sleeping bag seams.
