Delivering all-weather reliability, lightweight packability, and a number of comfort features, the Sierra Designs Taquito 20 Degree sleeping offers reliable 3-season backpacking and camping performance at a competitive price.
The bag is insulated with 550-fill DriDown. Renowned for their efficiency in retaining heat and compressible properties, the feathers and fibers of down have an incredibly soft, comfortable feel and, despite advances in synthetic materials, continue to provide the best warmth-to-weight ratio of any insulation available. The one inherent weakness of down insulation is that it loses much of its ability to maintain warmth when it gets wet; but DriDown performs differently. Employing a unique, innovative polymer application, DriDown actually creates a hydrophobic finish on each individual plume of down. This treatment results in insulation that stays dry longer and dries faster than untreated down. Perhaps most impressively, this allows the insulation to retain 98% of its loft which translates into maintained warmth that untreated down bags simply cannot achieve.
The bag's baffled mummy shape balances comfort, thermal efficiency, and weight. An ergonomic hood helps reduce heat loss by keeping your head warm and comfortable. An integrated draft collar helps to banish cold air. A dual zipper system makes it easy to get in and out of the bag and also provides venting options. A self-sealing foot vent allows you to extend your feet out of the bottom of the bag in balmy weather but effectively retains heat when temperatures require it.
The Sierra Taquito 20 Degree sleeping bag is available in Regular (fits up to 6' 0") and Long (fits up to 6' 6") lengths. A stuff sack and storage sack are included.
