REI Igneo 17 Sleeping Bag Video Review


Hi, welcome to Backpackers.com Today we’re looking at the REI Igneo 17, which is a new sleeping bag from REI This is it all packed up into its stuff sack, and you can see there’s actually Quite a bit of room for it to compress even more It comes to store in this much larger ventilated storage sack, which is really nice for keeping the insulation from getting too compressed The Igneo 17 is a 700 fill duck down sleeping bag It’s very warm, at 17 degrees That’s the EN lower limit rating which means you can survive pretty comfortably at that The comfort rating is 28 degrees and this is for men as well There is a women’s version of the Igneo 17 It’s called the Joule 21. The temperature rating is a little bit higher because Women sleep a little bit colder, historically. This is the full sleeping bag, and you can see that the red is the main fabric and the black on the sides has vertical baffles, and it’s a thicker firmer fabric that feels more tear resistant and Is more waterproof. So that’s in the foot of the bag and around the sides, which are usually where you get most of the liquid The sleeping bag itself is incredibly comfortable it is a mummy and with a pretty tight mummy, but it sleeps really well And it’s wide in the shoulders, which is great for guys You can see one of my favorite features of this is the YKK zipper It has this interesting design, which really keeps it from snagging which is really nice And another nice close-up feature is this Muffler thing. It looks like a little blanket in the top of the sleeping bag That’s comfortable and sort of wraps around you for when you want to be really warm Yeah, so this is just a quick look at the REI Igneo 17 Read the full review on Backpackers.com
