Description

The Pinnacle of versatility.

The versatile Marmot Pinnacle Sleeping Bag helps you get the shut-eye you need during summer alpine backpacking trips and shoulder-season climbing excursions. This 15-degree mummy bag has a spacious trapezoidal foot box and stretch baffles so you don't feel mummified, and a down-filled draft tube along the zipper and a cozy hood that seal in the warmth.

  • 15-degree rating and an EN comfort-limit rating of 26.6 degrees Fahrenheit means this bag will get you through a night with temps in the teens, although you'll be more comfortable in temps just below freezing
  • Certified 800-fill goose down provides serious insulation against brutal temperatures
  • Mummy shape holds warmth close to your body, and a wrap-around foot box helps maintain loft around the bottom of your bag so your feet don't freeze
  • 20D nylon ripstop is lightweight, packable and durable
  • 40D nylon lining can stand up to season after season of use
  • Nautilus hood mimics the design of Marmot's 8000M jacket hood to provide three-dimensional protection for your head
  • Internal down collar with easy-access drawcord stops heat from escaping around your neck
  • Contoured zip with down-filled draft tube prevents cold air from seeping in between the zipper's teeth
  • Stuff and storage sacks let you pack your bag tightly for trips and then let it air out and decompress when you're back at home

Great Sleeping Bag!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I used this bag in Coyote Gulch, UT. Temperature at night was down in the 40's.

Pros: Well designed, warm, light and compact.

Cons:Pricey!

Comfortable below freezing and packable

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

My brother and his girlfriend both use this sleeping bag and report back that it is warm, cozy, comfortable, sleek, and easily packable. It keeps the body warm in temperatures below 30 degrees(but gets too warm above 80 degrees). They've even zipped their Pinnacle bags together while sitting in their living room to keep them warm through a frigid east coast winter! So it's cozy around the house as well as at the campsite...

My boyfriend and I are looking for new sleeping bags, and would like to zip them together. However, he is much taller than I am. Can a long and a regular size be zipped together?

Best Answer Responded on

It can work, but its kind of tricky. My boyfriend and I have the Marmot Trestles sleeping bags, and mine is a women's version. Even though they are both regular sizes, the male/female versions have slightly different lengths of zippers and are a pain to unzip from each other. This would be the same case with a long bag and a regular bag.

Great Bag!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I purchased this bag about eight months ago and have used it many times (53 nights) from 40 degrees F down to 15F and have been very comfortable. Even at 15F I was able to sleep comfortably with a merino pant base layer and a light beanie. The down is exceptionally lofty and the bag is high quality. For a 15 degree bag it is very light and compresses extremely well! At 6ft tall the regular bag fits but I definitely fill the whole bag and feel just barely squeezed when needing the hood. Otherwise the bag is awesome and I would buy it again!

I am also six feet tall and I have 49" chest. You say you would buy the bag again. Would you get the regular 83" bag again or would you get the long 89" Pinnacle?

If I am just a bit over six feet, 6' 3/4", will a regular sized bag fit or am I going to feel scrunched if laying flat on my back? I am hesitant to get the long if I don't absolutely need it. I generally don't stuff the foot box with clothes either.

Best Answer Responded on

At almost 6'1", you'll be safer buying the regular. The bag is cut to accommodate 6' even--any longer and you'll start to compress the down in the footbox a little bit, which leads to colder nights. I'm 6'0" even, and while I fit into my wife's long Marmot bag (designed for 5'10"), I do feel like I'm packing out the down a bit.

Your mileage may vary. To be safe--go with the long. Of course, if you want to, you could always try the regular, see if it works for you (make sure you're not pressing into the down of the foot box), and then return it if necessary.

Exactly what I needed

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I'm not a hardcore backpacker, but I camp several times a year in spring-summer-fall for 2-3 nights a stretch, and occasionally do multi-day bike tours with overnight camping. I needed a bag that was light, packable, warm and adaptable. This is all four, and with the Backcountry sale price you can't go wrong.

I took this out for the first time this weekend in the Virginia mountains. Temps at night were in the low 30s. With a light base layer on top and bottom, plus some cozy socks (and additional body heat in the tent), I slept like a (very warm) baby until the sun came up, at which point I was starting to sweat and needed to shed layers. I'm glad to know I could sneak in some early winter trips in lower temps and still not turn into a compete popsicle while getting some shuteye.

The loft and coziness of this bag would make it a great topper (zipped up) for my sleeping pad in the summer, with just a sheet or light blanket on top. And it compresses down to nearly nothing, so I know it would be a great companion for backpacking or cramming into my weight-limited duffel bag for RAGBRAI over the summer.

I look forward to more three-season adventures with this high quality bag.

I have this bag and find it THE BESt I've ever had! Mind if I ask what type and size of compression sack you use? Thanks!

i'd recommend the sea to summit eVent Medium...you could get away with a small, but i've found the medium to be spot on

Very very good bag

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought this and compared at home the Stoic Somunus sz 15, the north face superlight 0 degree bag. The marmots material inside and outside are not as soft and confi as any of the others which use the soft pertex water resistant material; however it has the same weight as the Stoic and it is lighter than the north face superlight. North face is supposed to be warmer though and it is 4 season, however I am not willing to carry another pound when I mostly use it in the 3 seasons. The insulation at the neck and nose convinced me that this is a better bag than the stoic. Marmot has extra insulation and tightening loops at the neck to seal the cold air out as well as another loop that you can tighten around your face or nose. This helped to stay warm in the Sierras where my water bottle started freezing. No cold air entered the bag when I moved around at night. I completely sealed out that. I don?t think I could do that with the Stoics simple one loop design. Also the marmot long has more wiggle room at the foot and the hips and felt like it has more down in it. Since I put my clothes in the bag to keep them warm I have more room left in the marmot. The zipper snags if you are not used to it, but there is away to use it without sagging if you practice a bit. Also the zipper glowed in the dark. I love the hood it can hold your pillow too. I think for the price between $220 - $260 it is one of the best bags out there. It is not water resistant so I give it 4 instead of 5 stars. I bet this would be the next thing they will upgrade in the future.
