Product: REI Igneo Sleeping Bag
Retailer: REI

In awarding its 2012 Gear of the Year Award, Outside magazine said, “The Igneo has all the features you want in a sleeping bag, and lacks two things you don’t: extra weight and a high price.”

  • Further, “The … real standout feature was the new waterproof coating … designed to repel condensation without the weight, bulk, and annoying … crinkle of a waterproof shell.”
  • The REI Igneo 3-season premium backpacking sleeping bag features goose down insulation and a waterproof, breathable shell fabric for slaying cold nights in the backcountry.
  • Tested by an independent third-party lab using European Norm? protocol, the EN temperature ratings allow direct comparisons across brands with other EN-rated bags
  • Waterproof, breathable shell fabric is an ultralight, coated ripstop nylon designed to dissipate moisture from the inside, repel moisture from the outside and keep down dry
  • 800-fill-power? goose down is efficiently distributed for maximum warmth and compressibility; ultralight polyester mini-ripstop lining has a soft hand-feel
  • Exclusive REI Down Fill Calculator optimizes the amount of down per baffle for the most warmth with the least amount of down
  • 60% of insulation is put on top of bag where it contributes the most warmth and loft
  • In-the-round pattern wraps vertical baffles around perimeter of sleeping bag, from head to foot, creating a 3-dimensional bag that wraps you in warmth
  • Performance fit saves weight by reducing girth at shoulders, hips and lower legs while increasing thermal efficiency
  • Baffle spacing is optimized to keep down in place and prevent cold spots
  • Multichambered contour hood, insulated full-face muffler, puffy interior yoke, and full-length zipper draft tube with ground-level seams all work to keep heat in and cold out
  • Trapezoidal footbox mirrors sleeping position for room to move and thermal efficiency
  • External chest pocket keeps small essentials–headlamp, watch, glasses–right at hand and easy to find in the dark
  • Includes nylon stuff sack and large cotton storage bag
  • Differentiated drawcords (1 round, 1 flat) allow quick identification, even in the dark, so neck and hood adjustments are a cinch
  • Any REI backpacking bag can be zipped to any other REI backpacking bag because of the consistent 63 in., No. 5, YKK? zipper; women’s bags zip on the right, men’s on the left
  • Zipper is backed by a wide, welded fabric flap that prevents snagging
  • Pad loops provide attachment points to keep your sleeping bag and pad together, so you needn’t worry about rolling onto the cold ground (straps sold separately)

Prices range from $339.00 to $359.00
