Warmth you can hold on to.
It's convenient to rely on your tent buddy for warmth, but sooner or later your backpacking companion might want some personal space—especially if you've indulged in more than your share of freeze-dried beef stroganoff. Slide into your Marmot Trestles Elite 0 Sleeping Bag and stay toasty as a golden-brown marshmallow.
This cozy mummy bag is stuffed with synthetic HL-ElixR insulation, blending ultimate warmth and low weight to put up a solid line of defense against bitter nighttime chill. When you decide to get cuddly, the fold-down second zipper lets you ventilate without totally exposing yourself to the cold, and the external stash pocket is the perfect spot to store an extra set of earplugs in case your warm-blooded tent mate starts to saw logs in the middle of the night.

- Q & A
The Cadillac of synthetic bags!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I'm a bit of a "clean freak". I am washing my clothes constantly, and that goes for my sleeping bags too. My old down bag served me well, but washing it more than once a year, even with the proper down detergents left the bag in a less that desirable state.
I know, I know, "Just use a sleeping bag liner!" you say! I was thinking the same thing until Marmot came to us last spring and brought out their latest synthetic bags with HL-ElixR insulation. I was skeptical that their claims of a down performance and size with synthetic pluses too.
Now this bag may not stuff down or weight about the same as a down bag (but comes damn well close), but it is extremely comfortable, holds true to its warmth rating and is all around a killer bag! Plus (a big plus for me) it can be washed!
