If only we all slept soundly on our back, hands folded neatly in front of us, without moving a muscle until the sun rose and it was time to break camp. If only. Few of us do and many backpackers spend most of the night on their sides or moving from one position to the next. Enter the Sidewinder SL mummy bag and its unique profile. By turning the jacket-style hood and overall articulation on its side (literally), the bag offers a solution for lying comfortably on your right or left side and rolling from one side to the other without any of the awkwardness of a traditional bag. A stretch internal pocket positions a pillow (pillow not included) beneath your head regardless of your position and anyone who has spent a cold night chasing a pillow back into their sleeping bag will rejoice at this feature. The bag also uses a hybrid mix of ultra-lightweight, compressible water-resistant down insulation and body-mapped synthetic insulation to keep weight to a minimum while bolstering weather protection in key areas at the feet and torso. For anyone looking for a little extra space and not as concerned about packed size or weight, there are also roomier “Camp” versions of the Sidewinder.
The Sidewinder SL 20 is available in men’s and women’s styles.
