Wow...Did anyone else notice that the Z Torch for men was missing??
I guess this is payback for all the times women's styles and sizes weer omitted.
A Z Torch zero to 10 degree sleeping bag at around $110.00 is a pretty good deal, as there are bags out there that are rated for the same temperature that go for well over $400.00 at the low end, and over $788.00 at the upper end.
Can you say Brooks Range, Western Mountaineering, Marmot, Nemo, Mountain Hardwear??
Those are down bags however, and you have to ask yourself how many days you spend camping in the snow and zero degree weather, in order to justify the price.
Hey, if you will climbing Everest, ar living on a glacier for the winter, then go for it.
On other important note about down sleeping bags is if they get wet, they stay wet!
You are basically screwed.
Even the so called Dri Down, treated to make it more water resistant takes much longer to dry than synthetic insulation.
Unless I have a lot of expendable funds then my pick is a 0 to 10 degree bag with synthetic insulationso at least Mountain Hardwear covers all the bases.
Unfortunately no Z Torch offered her for men!
