      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Marmot Atom

Recommended Posts

Anyone use the Marmot Atom sleeping bag? They call it a 40 deg bag with the regular height clocking in at 1 lb. Finally a 1 lb bag in the mummy style.

Looks like a nice bag (but they don't list fill weight). Though a 1 lb mummy bag has been around for quite a few years. WM Highlight 35 degree. They are both sewn through designs. I've been using the Highlight for a few summers now with great success. Good into the 20's for me in combo with the 10 ounce WM Flight Jacket.

I've got the WM bag as well and like it....my only complaint is I have broad shoulders, and it's very snug.

 

Montbell has a stretch down hugger line that looks to be a bit heavier at equivalent ratings, but I think their rating system is based on the comfort rating vs. extreme that some are. I have a light synthetic bag in this line, and the stretch makes it more comfortable than my WM. Last I checked Jim Nelson had a decent selection of both down and synthetic at his shop.

I have a Marmot Arroyo rated at 35 degrees. It has baffle construction and weighs 1 lb, 11 oz. I've been down to 20 degrees with it and it's chilly, but nice and warm at 35 degrees. The only way to get down to 1 lb is sewn through construction. It's good enough for a 40 degree bag.
