Green 20F Regular Width, Long Length:

Slate Blue 10F Regular Width, Long Length. The color is not as bright as it appears. It is a more subdued blue-gray.

Description:



Our sleeping bags combine the best aspects of a down quilt and a down sleeping bag at an unbeatable weight. The bag opens up underneath you like a blanket for easy temperature control when it is warm out, and a 3/4 length zipper and neck elastic allow you to bundle up when the temperature turns cold.

Available in 40, 30, 20 and 10 degree Fahrenheit temperature ratings (5C, -1C, -7C, and -12C), in a plethora of sizes. Each bag is custom built to your specifications.

The bags are made with premium 900 fill power white European goose down and some of the lightest nylon shell materials available. Our down is ethically sourced straight from the producer.

Washing Instructions:



Hand wash with warm water in a bathtub or bucket. Do not use soap unless it is made specifically for down. Normal soap can strip down of its natural oils. Typically warm water alone is sufficient. Do not machine wash- the twisting motion of a washing machine may cause tears. Line dry, or tumble dry on low heat. Do Not Dry on High Heat. Store loose (hanging) when not in use!

Specification Charts / Ordering:



Sleeping Bags are made to order and are currently shipping in just 1-2 weeks. If you have a hard due date in that vicinity make sure to let us know after you order so that we can schedule accordingly.

There are a few sleeping bags in the Bargain Bin available for immediate shipment.

Important: The sizes listed will come roughly to chin level on a person up to the indicated height. We recommend sizing up one length so that you have extra length to pull up around your ears when it gets cold. Please scroll down below the charts to add alternative zippers or a draft tube.

Zipper Options:



Option 1) The Default Zipper Photo is 3/4 length on the bottom. It is a lightweight #3 size zipper. The zipper accounts for about .6 ounces (17 grams) of the bag weight. $0

Option 2) #5 Full Length Two-Way Zipper Photo This will be a larger #5 zipper, which will add about 1.2 ounces to the bag weight. It can open from the neck, or from the foot for venting. It extends down to the toe of the bag as shown. Add $10.

Option 3) Adjustable Straps Photo 1, Photo 2 . Instead of a zipper, two evenly spaced sets of grosgrain straps are added to secure the bottom of the bag. The straps clip at both sides and can be removed. You can clip the straps beneath your body, or you can wrap them around a sleeping pad as shown. There is also a clip at the neck of the bag. You are welcome to add this in addition to a zipper, just add both to your cart. $5

Option 4) Joining Zippers Photo 1  Photo 2. This option must be purchased with TWO sleeping bags at the same time so that we can match the zipper length on both bags. This option adds a full length #5 zipper extended to the toe of the bag, AND a draft tube. The two bags do not need to be the same girth or length, they just need to be built with the same length #5 zipper to join up. When the bags are zipped together the draft tubes will be positioned such that both are covering the zipper at the top center. When used solo the zipper and draft tube will be in the standard bottom configuration underneath you. This adds about 1.2 ounces for the larger zipper and 1.2 ounces for the draft tube to each bag (+2.4 ounces each). $35 each bag 

Zipper


Draft Tube:



The zipper is the only "cold spot" on this bag. Normally the zipper would be positioned underneath you where cold air won't get through. If you roll around alot and aren't comfortable keeping the zipper below you a Draft Tube can be added to cover the zipper. The draft tube has a stiffener to help keep the zipper from snagging on it. It adds 1.2 ounces (34 grams) of weight.

Draft Tube - 1.2 oz (34 grams) - $20

Down Overfill:



The amount of down in each sleeping bag is explained Here. The sleeping bags are overfilled 30% based on the calculated amount of 900 fill power down required to fill the volume.

We are no longer doing in between temperature ratings or bag lengths as it makes construction and exchanges difficult. If you sleep cold at night consider going down to the next lowest temperature rating. Exchanges are welcome on any of the standard sizes and temperature ratings!

Matt Alley reports on his
10F Sleeping Bag
"I just returned from my thru-hike of the John Muir Trail. Your 30 degree quilt performed wonderfully. I was plenty warm most nights, although a little concerned at first. It got into the low 30's a few nights and I'd say the average low temp was around 38 - 40. The 30 degree rating is definitely an accurate rating especially when compared to bags or quilts of the same rating. And, as I'm sure you know, some manufacturers are more honest than others. I'd definitely take this quilt with me again in temperatures estimated to be in the 30's." -Tyler F.
"My constantly-cold wife has been using your 20 degree quilt since January 2012, in temps down to 25 degrees, and hasn't been cold a single night. She loves it!" -Austin
"My 19 ounce, 20 degree bag that I bought from you gave me an edge when it came to weight and pack volume.  We were forced on many occasions to sleep out in some rather wet dewy conditions, and while I frequently woke up with a healthy layer of moisture on my bag and gear, the dry sacks never failed me and the sleeping bag always stayed warm.  It also dried out super quick.  You must already know how effective your products are in the field, but regardless I wanted you to know what a difference they made in my backcountry experience." -Timothy W.
"Just got back from a two week trip in the Southern Rockies and had all kinds of weather.  Have to say that your sleeping bags worked fabulously and far exceeded our expectations.  Thank you for making such great (and light) gear." -Rob H.
"Just wanted to let you know that my bag performed superbly on my Cascades trip. I was super snug and actually preferred not having a hood if the truth be known. We climbed Shuksan via the Fischer's Chimneys and Southeast Ridge and I can honestly say I needed some good sleep (it was tough!) so I really really appreciated being warm and my big pack being lighter. Thanks again for making this one happen for me!" -Viki T.
"I just wanted to let you know what a superior product your company makes. I just finished a hike of the arctic circle trail in Greenland and you bag performed flawlessly. I hardly noticed it in my pack and it was warm. The ability to use as a quilt kept me ventilated when I got too warm. I was gone for about a month and slept in your bag in ranges from the polar ice cap out to the coast. After that, I did trips to Iceland, the mountains around my house, and everywhere in between. It was perfect. I currently have the 10 degree wide, long bag (it is warmer then 10 degree in my opinion). There are very few things I would change about it. I can't say that about most gear. I will be ordering a new model in the near future for myself and my wife." -Davy H.
" I successfully completed a NOBO PCT hike, starting May 19th and ending October 29th amidst the glorious snow. I used your 30* long / wide quilt and stuff sack pillow from start to finish and couldn't be more pleased with the performance!" -Seth B.
"Camped in the back yard last night as it hovered around 10 degrees. Wanted to give the new 10F bag a try. 40 mph wind gusts had the tent rocking a bit. I had to remove layers to dial in the warmth and the temperature rating was for me just right and then some. So in the end I have now saved around 1.5 lbs off my old sleeping system!" -Chris B.
"The bag that we originally got was a little on the cold side for me (not the bags fault- as I get older I find that I just sleep colder). You guys took the bag back and sold me a warmer one for just a little more. I was extremely impressed with your level of service and the quality of the replacement bag. I've taken it out several times and have slept very comfortably in it. You guys are fantastic and make great stuff!" -Sincerely, Kemper S.
"My new Duplex tent and 10 degree bag were awesome this past weekend in Michigan. It got down to 7 degrees and I was the only one of 6 who didn't complain about being cold. Thanks!" --Kevin R.
"I can't tell you how happy I was to get my new 10F sleeping bag! I've already used it on two short trips and it has exceeded all my expectations. From years of working at a high end outdoor retail store I can say with confidence that this bag blows every big name brand out of the water, at a reasonable price too." -Eli B.
"I just wanted to let you know that I returned from my JMT hike on August 11. I had lots of weather for those two weeks. My 20F sleeping bag kept me warm and dry! I was so thankful for this bag. Thank you so much for working with me!" -Diana H.
"I have to repeat what I tell everyone: your sleeping bags and other products, and your service, is the best in the industry. Iíve been using my new Solo bag all summer and still donít believe how comfortable it is for sleeping and how feather light it is for carrying. Thank you for delivering a major quality of life improvement on the trail!" -Peter N.
Bobcat completed the triple crown (AT, PCT, CDT) in September 2014. "My ZPacks sleeping bags have over 6,000 miles on them and they're still going strong. This photo was taken on Texas Pass above Cirque of the Towers in the Wind River Range of Wyoming." -Bobcat
"I bought a 20 degree, wide, long sleeping bag from you last year. I did about 2100 miles of the CDT and it performed very well. (Lots of rain in Colorado and Wyoming). I had to supplement with a few extra layers on a few cold nights, but nearly every day it was plenty warm. Also, love my Duplex tent. For 20 ounces, itís a palace. Never failed once in many nights of rain. You guys make good stuff." -Chuck S.
"Your 10F degree bag is one of the best equipment purchases that I have made that has by far exceeded my expectations. I was camping for 3 nights north of Montreal in the Laurentian Mountains, and tested the sleeping bag at -4F. I was sleeping inside a tent so I am not sure what the temperature inside was, but I was expecting a long freezing night. I used my down pants and my puffy, but after 2 hrs in the bag I had to remove them as I was too hot. I like the shell material of the sleeping bag, very thin, and seems to be very strong." -Gilles B.
"Iíve been using one of your 20F quilts for a year now and Iíve been super happy with it for trekking in Sardinia, paddling in Norway and climbing in the Alps this winter (with all my clothes on of course). Absolutely outstanding equipment!!! I suggested my mother to buy one and she has been using her own in Iceland last summer." -Ruggero A.
"Feedback on my 20F and 10F sleeping bags. I find both great: light and warm. I have used both several times at the temperature ratings, and always felt cozy warm. I do use them in a tent, with your bivy which adds several degrees of heat. I have never used the zippers. On my head I have a fleece balaclava and your Goose Hood when below freezing. There were never cold spots. Thank you, you make really good stuff!" -Anne G., Switzerland
"Just wanted to let you know that my custom quilt came out perfect. I love it. I've used it a dozen or so nights and when zipped up it has kept me warm into the low teens (F) in only a base layer, socks, and a beanie. As a quilt, I love how I can either keep the down over my torso or, on particularly warm nights, let it fall to my sides. It's the most versatile quilt I've ever owned. Plus, it's magnificent to see such a huge thing covered with beautiful fabric and know it weighs so little. A down puff sneaks out occasionally, but nothing crazy. I'll be recommending your bags to friends and family. Thanks! You guys nailed it." -Jason W.
"The 20F sleeping bag you made for me kicks ass... have used it camping primarily in New England in cold weather. Not exactly dead of winter, but cold shoulder season." -George G.
"I'm going to pass on my 20 degree bag to my wife. It now has over 7,500 miles on it, CDT, AT and quite a few shorter hikes in-between, and it's still in almost new condition. Loft is great and I'd use it again on our Camino trip this summer, except that this gives me a good excuse to buy a new summer bag. That 20 degree bag has held up much better than the WM 20 I used on the PCT in 2010, which was basically shot and had lost most of it's loft after just one thru hike. A point I've made many times when recommending you guys on the PCT-L and Facebook sites. You have good stuff." -Shroomer
"I LOVE my 20F sleeping bag now that I understand how to shake the down to the top -- and I'm showing it off to everyone -- it is AWESOME in quilt mode or half zipped on > 35 degree nights." -Raphael M.
"I wanted to tell you all how much I love my ZPacks 20 degree bag! I have used it over 30 nights so far and it is far beyond what I could have expected. It seems so much warmer than a 20 degree bag and the shape and cut is the best I've experienced. Anyways, thanks and keep up the great work!" -Sam V.
"I got your exceptional 20 degree down sleeping bag for my PCT thru-hike in 2013. Loved it and except for one incredibly chilly night in the desert where it went down to about 10 degrees, it was a complete trooper. After a good cleaning post-trail, it still is my primary sleeping bag here in the PNW." -Paul B.
"IMHO your sleeping bags are the only bags Iíve ever used that are actually true to their ratings, and Iím a cold sleeper so others might think the ratings are off. But for me they are perfect. As a restless sleeper I canít sleep in mine zipped up, so I added my own elastic straps to keep it snug around me for cold nights, and that worked great." -Amy F.
"Just thought I would drop you a line. Spent the past few weeks in the Cascades using the 30F bag. Its amazing. My girlfriend had already ordered a 10 degree after seeing it in use."-Mike H.
"I wanted to let you know that I finally got to use my 10F sleeping bag. It was perfect, exactly what I needed. The size was right, and it was like sleeping in a pillow. I was camped at about 11,500 Ft on Mt. Rainier in my tent with light clothes and 40 mile an hour winds, in the teens at best. Was nice and cozy warm!" -Bradley D.
"The sleeping bag I bought from you last year is fantastic. Perfect with the down hood! Extremely comfortable sleep, so thank you!" -Russel W.
"I received my bag in time for my trip. This was a 50+ mile trip on the JMT from Onion Valley to Whitney Portal. I can't tell you how much I love my new 10F sleeping bag, it was perfect for the high elevations." -Lenora S.
"Just letting you know that the sleeping bag I got from you guys is performing magnificently!" -Catherine B.
"I just wanted to send another huge thanks your way! I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my sleeping bag!!!! It is such a great thing when I buy a piece of gear that just works and there really isn't anything I would change about it; it does the job I need it to, pretty much exactly how I want and I can rely on it to do that on every trip! My sleeping bag from you is one of those items. I rave about it to anyone that cares about such matters :). This is my second season with it and so far it has been on several technical traverse where weight really mattered. Here is a photo of me in my bag from this past weekend at our ridge bivy along the Tantalus traverse near Squamish, BC. Thanks again for a great product! Feel free to post my comments!" -Lorraine C.
"I just wanted to send you a short email saying how much I appreciated the 20 degree sleeping bag I bought from you. I have taken it out for several trips now and love it! Most recently was a 40 day expedition I lead in the Wind River Range in Wyoming. It kept me warm extremely well even when camped on glaciers and high alpine environments. I was warm when others were not. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect sleeping bag for that trip as well my other personal trips. I just want you to know that I hold your company in high regard. I now brag about your gear that I own to all the other guides and my students. I look forward to buying more of your products in the future, especially one of your tents! Thank you." -Kevin K.
"I just want to tell you how much I like my new sleeping bag, which I received a few weeks ago. I carried on an overnighter last night and I can tell you that for the first time in my hiking career, I didn't freeze. It feels like a light, silky cocoon of warmth and being able to pull the extra length over my head works vastly better than any hood. Great product, thanks so much!" -Marie G.
"I took your 20 degree sleeping bag on a short backpack on the PCT. The bag is so beautifully constructed and was perfect; I love it! In warmer weather I could unzip the bottom for ventilation and later in the night I could bring the bag around me. Thank you for your conscientious advice and help in figuring out what I needed." -Janet C.
"I wanted to take a second and tell you how awesome you all are. I recently ordered an extra wide xx long 30 bag and a hammock tarp from you. They work perfect. I'm 6'3 and built like a refrigerator so you can imagine how hard it is to just find a bag I can slide on like a body condom let alone one that is comfortable. Your bag is actually the first one that has ever fit me and oh god is it comfortable. I was nervous about ordering from a company that does not offer up their phone number, but your customer service is top notch. Thank you for getting my gear to my before my trip." -Clinton P.
"My sleeping bag is amazing. Nothing that light should be that warm. The separate hood is a stroke of genius." -Johhny E.
"We recently completed our 2015 AT Thru-Hike. The 20 Degree sleeping bag was outstanding! I love the quilt/bag. It's very versatile and light enough to carry the entire thru-hike. My only comment (in hindsight) is I wish I would have ordered it longer to pull over my head. It fits perfectly around my neck, as you describe on the website. I may purchase a longer 10F version, as I became a "colder" sleeper the more weight I lost along the trail. I'd also purchased the down hood to pair with the bag and my down jacket." -Adrian F.
"I used the ZPacks 10 degree sleeping bag during my Pacific Crest Trail thru-hike, from May to September 2015. I was always warm! Many nights I was actually too warm, so I simply slept with the bag unzipped and it was perfect." -Carly M.

"I just wanted to thank you for making my ZPacks 10 degree sleeping bag. I used it on the entire PCT in 2015 and was never disappointed. The bag worked wonderfully even when very damp in the north cascades, and in temps below freezing. It was hands down my favorite piece of gear, and the only item of my big three that I didn't replace on trail as I was downsizing and lightening up.
I also appreciated the patient customer service I received prior to ordering my bag; I later found all the answers to my questions on the FAQ page, but someone personally took the time to email me the answers anyway. You definitely proved your good reputation within the hiking community is no joke!
Everyone I talked to on the PCT who had your gear was very pleased with it. I'm glad I bought the bag I wanted, I truly believe it to be the best for long-distance hiking. It's also in perfect condition even after five months of continuous use." -Kat H.
"I have just returned from the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal and it was extremely cold in the high altitudes. My new 10F sleeping bag and hood performed exceptionally well. I did not have to use an extra blanket at any time. It is the warmest & lightest sleeping bag I have ever owned, and I have tried 5 in my endeavor to get the warmth I need. My search is over, thanks a lot." -Anne G.
"I got a sleeping bag from you a few months ago. Love it, excellent product. It's just as warm as my old 20deg but at half the weight and a bit less packed volume. It was my first quilt-bag experience too. I never realized how restricting a mummy style bag was. I also like not sliding off my ground pad all night." -Tyler P.
"Just wanted to drop you a line and update on the 30F I picked up. I've had it well below its reported comfort range in combination with a lightweight down jacket. Very impressed." -Mike H.
"I also just want to say thanks for being such a kickass company and making such innovative gear. My 20 degree bag has accompanied me on countless trips and at least a couple thousand miles so far and is my most cherished piece of gear. You rushed it to me so that I could have it in time to climb the South Sister in 2014. It was an amazing trip that I will never forget and hopefully the bag will be accompanying me to climb the rest of the Cascade volcanoes in the future." -Sam V.
"I've been sleeping in my ZPacks sleeping bag basically every night for the last 6 months or so as I travel round Australia. It's been absolutely one of the best and most important bits of kit in my backpack." -Rowan
"I'm loving the 20F down bag you made for me. From the High Sierras, to SW desert, to Tibet, w/ the Goose Hood it's sooo good!" -Ken B.
"I purchased one of your amazing sleeping bags 3 years ago and I am as in love with it now as ever. New Zealand, Utah, JMT thru hike......all of it accomplished with the luxury with this amazing bag." -Jean K.
"I love my 10 degree sleeping bag! I have been trying to get a photo that would be worthy of your facebook posts but so far have fallen way short- please know that your light weight gear is responsible for letting this middle aged woman get out a lot more with a featherweight base weight and sleep comfortably above treeline." -Kristen C.
"My sleeping back still confuses me. I think it is stuffed with clouds, sugar plum fairies and some sort of magic. I can hardly feel the sleeping back on top of me, yet on the nights when it got into the 20ís, I was toasty warm. Next day, cram it down into a very small stuff sack and it fit nicely into my pack. I am looking back at all the ďgoodĒ bags I have had in the past and am kicking myself." -Tim M.
