Sea to Summit

Sea to Summit sleeping bags bring you the most advanced sleeping bags available. They are lighter, warmer, easier to use and combat moisture better than any other bags. They overcame the inadequacies of a previous generation of sleeping bags like snagging zippers, poorly fitted hoods, cold spots, day-to-day growing dampness and difficult draw cords. If the weight and performance of your bag is important to you, you’ll want to take a look at these. They offer special features like a tapered foot box, YKK zips and reverse zips, anti-snag zip system, adjustable hoods that naturally trap in warmth, a large inside security pocket for your wallet, phone, and passport, and high quality 850+ Loft European Goose Down. Many of these are protected by the patent pending 3D NanoShell.

Marmot is one of the best and most respected names in backpacking. They offer bivy sacks, three and four season tents in a variety of sizes, and single wall tents. These tents are durable and comfortable. They have features like a vestibule that keeps your boots and other items dry and safe when the rain pays an unwelcome visit. The included gear loft and footprint mean that the package comes completely trail-ready right out of the box. A Polyurethane-coated floor and fly help rain bead off instead of soaking you and your gear inside. Catenary Cut floor means the floor material curves a few inches up the tent walls to reduce direct seam-to-ground contact. Interior pockets hold your headlamps, map, or other small accessories close at hand.
