How do I care for my new down sleeping bag?
- When you first receive the bag, run it in the dryer at the low-temperature or air fluff setting for about 10 minutes to loosen up the down that has been compressed during the shipping process.
- When heading out on the trail, use the included compression sack to protect the bag and also reduce the amount of space it takes up in your pack. Use care when stuffing the bag into the compression sack.
- Between trips, always store your bag using the included mesh storage sack or the hanging loops.
- Always wash your bag by hand or a front-load tumble washer. Never use a top load washer. Never use bleach.
For more detailed care instructions, including how to make repairs, please review our complete guide.
How do you determine the temperature rating?
We've put together an in-depth article on how we determine our temperature ratings. The guide also provides lots of helpful advice regarding making an informed decision.
How can I increase the temperature rating of my sleeping bag?
If you'd like to use our down bag at temperatures of 15 degrees and below, you may consider adding a sleeping bag liner to add about 10 degrees to the warmth rating. The Sea to Summit Thermolite Sleeping Bag Liner is a great option.

If you've purchased a tent or tarp and would like to set it up in your backyard, please do so on a dry, clear day to keep the tent/tarp as clean as possible. Pitch the tent/tarp on dry grass if possible and use other stakes if you have them available. This will keep the tent/tarp and stakes in an unused condition to facilitate a return.
Once your return is received and inspected, we will issue your refund and you will be notified via email. When a refund is processed, a credit will automatically be applied to your original method of payment. Please allow 2-5 business days for the credit to appear.
