Trek TkII Sleeping Bag: 18 Degree Down
The days are getting shorter, but you're not ready to pack up the camping gear and start praying for snow just yet. Whether winter is just around the corner or has just said its farewells, chilly shoulder-season backpacking trips won't be so chilly in the Sea To Summit Trek TkII Sleeping Bag. The 650-fill down insulation will keep you warm on cold nights, whether they find you in the desert or the mountains. And thanks to Sea To Summit's Ultra-Dry Down technology, your down insulation won't lose its loft if you find yourself in wet and cold conditions, or if your bag happens to get wet throughout your travels.
Verrtical baffeling in the chest prevents the down from shifting sideways as you sleep, keeping the warmth where it's most effective and not anywhere else, while a 3D sidewall baffle lets the down loft all the way to the very edge of the bag, ensuring total warmth. A draft collar around the neck and a full length draft tube along the zipper prevent cold temperatures from creeping in, and if you end up wanting some ventilation in the night you've got two-way functionality on the main and footbox zippers. To keep a phone or headlamp close by you've got an internal stash pocket, and to guarantee that your whole body is warm there's an adjustable mummy hood.

Snug as a Bug
STS continues to impress. Very happy with this bag. I have used a different bag from STS with a higher down fill which packed a tiny bit smaller than this, but for a 18 degree with only being 650 fill, packed very well for my hike in to the camp spot. Definitely wasn't needing any extra liner to boost the warmth for this bag camping in October in the Uintas. Very pleased and highly recommend!

Very comfortable, but a bit stinky?
- I've used it several times
*Disclaimer: I have the previous version, so maybe things are slightly different for this one. I really like this bag. It's super warm, really lofty, and the semi-rectangular shape means I can sleep on my side and not get constricted like I do in other mummy bags. It also packs down tiny, like, cantaloupe-sized tiny, with the included water-resistant compression sack. However, my favorite feature by far is the footbox zipper. I really dislike when my feet and legs get sweaty, and this allows me to keep my chest covered but have my legs and feet sticking out on warm nights. Unfortunately, like any piece of gear, the bag is not without its flaws. When I first got the bag, it smelled like new gear, which was just fine. However, within two nights of warm sleeping, it seriously stank. I thought my cat had used it as a litter box or something, it was that bad. I followed the directions on the included storage sack (nice touch, by the way) to wash it, and after a day-long bath in down shampoo and about 5 trips to the dryer to get the clumps out of the down, it did smell better. I've used it about 10 times since I washed it and I don't notice the smell too much anymore, but it's ideal if I'm sleeping outside. The footbox zipper is also a bit tricky to operate as well, but that's just nitpicking. I highly recommend this product for anyone looking for a crazy comfortable cool-weather bag, but mine did smell a bit. Sea To Summit really knows their stuff, so it wouldn't surprise me if mine was an anomaly, but it's definitely something worth mentioning. Peace, -Jonas

You highly recommend a sleeping bag that smelled like cat piss at "any" stage?? Are you a serious? Are you seriously a logical thinking human being? And you gave a cat litter box 4 stars?? Wow man. Just wow. As I am looking around at other comments on other sites, there seems to be a theme with this bag stinking like crap, and folks are giving them 4 stars. Amazing. Sad.

Hello So I live in the Pacific Northwest and I plan on doing some high altitude late season backpacking trips, im curious about the water resistance of this bag and then how well it can keep the warmth when damp.
