Sierra Designs Zissou 15 Degree DriDown Sleeping Bag Review

I crammed the Zissou 15 into a container and poured three liters of water over it the night before my trip. I let it soak overnight – about seven hours.

I’m Down (feathers) with My Kazoo!

This year I bought The North Face’s Blue Kazoo for women. It is a great lightweight three-season mummy sleeping bag (and it complements the color of my tent!). While it may not be able to follow you up a mountain all year round (debatable, of course), it is relevant for the other eight or nine months!
