No matter what type of outdoor enthusiast you are, staying warm is key to a good time. Westbound Boarder was lucky enough to try out a Brooks-Range Elephant Foot Sleeping Bag which is perfect for most any outdoor adventure you may encounter. Designed for the minimalist, this bag is a compact waist high sleeping bag to save valuable weight and bulk and is really, really easy to compact and fit back in the stuff sack. (Note that if necessary it pairs well with a mountain sweater or shell). The Elephant Foot Bag offers an adjustable suspender and drawcord design to keep the cold air out and prevent the bag from slipping down. The 800 fill down ensures compressibility and comfort to about 15 degrees farhenheit, where if you are hiking in the Pac NW, is plenty warm.
