Who needs hotels anyway?
You made a hotel reservation a month and a half before the Ice Festival, but now the hotel has no record of it. It doesn't matter too much though, because you brought your Marmot Women's Ouray 0-Degree Down Sleeping Bag along just in case, which is probably a whole lot better than that hole of a hotel-motel, anyway. Plus, this way you'll have an extra hundred bucks a night to blow at the bar after the day's festivities.
Marmot set the Ouray up with all the features you'd expect of a dependable 0-degree bag by insulating it with water-resistant down and treating the ripstop fabric with a DWR finish for extra protection against moisture and condensation from tent walls or car windows. The mummy shape of the bag includes an anatomic footbox to give your toes a little wiggle room during the night, because waking up with cold toes is almost as bad as waking up in a flea-ridden hotel bed. In order to limit heat loss, Marmot backed the zipper with a snag-free insulated draft tube and put the seams at ground level to help trap warm air, and included a hood that can be cinched down tightly when things get really cold. The Ouray also features a multi-baffle construction to keep the down from wandering as you roll around at night, so you don't have to struggle through cold spots.

- Q & A
Hefty but Warm
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I run really cold in general and had a hard time figuring out why I could never get to sleep on camping trips. Turns out the cold was the culprit. Ever since purchasing this bag I've slept like a baby! probably better than a baby. It's definitely a true zero degree temperature rating and could even be used in temps below that in my opinion. The bag is typical Marmot, high quality goodness, and it feels like you are sleeping on a cloud. Only drawbacks to this bag are the weight and the stuff size, but I knew about these going into the purchase. I mainly use this bag for winter car camping and short backpacking trips and the extra weight is well worth it. The zipper also doesn't get caught when zipping up and down like other bags I've used.
Wil this bag fit into a 15 L compression sack?
Xiru, it "might" barely fit. I would recommend going up to a larger size. This way it will fit and be easy to get in there. I've been trying to push the limits of compression sacks and ripping them or finding that I appreciate sizing up so its easy to stuff.
Will this sleeping bag fit a woman who is 5"8?
You are going to have some extra deadspace with this bag. Shoot me an email to discuss setting you up with the perfect bag!
