Saw some logs.
Pack up your Marmot Sawtooth 15 Degree Down Sleeping Bag and hit the winding trail knowing a good night's sleep is just a stuff sack away. Its well-rounded design and top-shelf features make the Sawtooth a welcome companion whether you're exploring the jagged granite peaks of its namesake range or sleeping in the back of your car during a two week climbing pilgrimage to Yosemite.
The Sawtooth weighs a highly manageable 2.5 pounds, making it a viable bag for backpacking and long treks, but with a slightly roomier design shape and anatomical foot box, it's plenty comfortable when you're camped close to the car. For insulation, Marmot used treated 650-fill down to keep the Sawtooth light, warm, and water-resistant, so a little dampness won't lead to a sleepless night. The zipper is backed by an insulated draft tube to prevent cold air from creeping through during those chilly nights, and the seams are oriented towards the ground to help limit heat loss. Stretch tricot baffles maximize the loft of the down for even more comfort, and the hood can be cinched down tightly to help trap heat you'd otherwise lose through your noggin.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This guy is an oven. 650 fill ensures that you will be extra toasty on those winter camping excursions. Rated down to 15 degrees, this bag is optimal for cold weather camping. You'll be sweating all night if you use it during the summer. I'd recommend this bag to winter campers and people who run really cold.
Great lightweight, extremely warm sleeping bag.
Good balance of price, warmth, & weight
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I call this my 'Swiss Army Knife' of sleeping bags. From desert camping and up into the Rockies, this has been a great 3-season bag. I've also used it in the winter months with good results as long as the temps are above 20°F (I tend to get cold easier than most). With a silk bag liner and decent sleeping pads I bet you could even get into the lower temps comfortably.
Putting two bags together to make one larger bag has also worked really well. The heat seems to stay inside even though there is extra room at the top of the bag due to combining two mummy style bags.
The internal stash pocket for keeping those items that tend to loose battery life in the cold has been an excellent feature. The hydrophobic down insulation has also worked well keeping the bag dry and warm when condensation collects in the tent.
The only real disadvantage I've experienced would be the loft of the bag. It feels like it should be a little loftier, even for a 650 fill.
