Outdoor gear and apparel company Marmot consistently provides travelers and adventurers with top-of-the-line products, leaving them with nary a concern when enjoying the outdoors. Campers can rely on the company to produce high-quality accessories for spending nights under the stars, such as the Ultra Elite 30 sleeping bag, a six-foot, mummy-shaped bag that comes at a hefty price but is worth it for Marmot’s sterling reputation for providing quality products.

 

The Ultra Elite 30 sleeping bag is made of 100 percent Nylon Mini Ripstop and weighs only 1 pound, 12.8 ounces. The bag is lined with HL-ElixR Micro, a blend of three fibers that keeps the interior warm and soft. The material also makes the bag compressible and easy to fold up and tuck into its carrying case to tote from one campsite to another.

 

The bag is nearly one-size-fits-all with a 3D hood and a drawstring that wraps around the sleeper’s head, plus a wrap-around insulated foot box to keep feet warm during sleep. An internal pocket is ideal for storing your mobile phone or other sleeping accessories such as ear plugs.

 

The bag is available in dark steel with a military green interior, and can be purchased on Amazon.com or Marmot’s website starting at $179.
