Zissou 0 from Sierra Designs » Cold weather means more than f-r-r-rigid temperatures. Camping in the snow usually means condensation in the tent as well — from heating devices or even breathing. One of the main issues with down is the loss of insulation when it becomes wet. Sierra Designs revealed the DriDown technology at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market. DriDown, 33 ounces of the 600 fill version, is a vital part of the Zissou 0.
Cloud 15 from Sierra Designs » There is significant jump in technology — and cost — between car camping and backpacking bags. Typically, the lighter the weight, the heftier the price. The Cloud 15 packs in 900 fill down, features super lightweight nylon ripstop and registers at 1.12 pounds. The Cloud features vertical baffles to keep down from congregating in certain areas. Backpackers will get a full three-seasons use out of the Cloud.
