The Kelty’s cosmic 20 combines all features of heavily expensive sleeping bags in a generously inexpensive price. The 600-fill Dri Down insulation is renowned for trapping air and being light. Similarly, it is compressible, long lasting, and breathable. Anti-snag lock zipper with dual slider makes it the best choice amongst easy to use sleeping bags. Retaining n exclusive, ground-breaking polymer application, DriDown in fact fashions a hydrophobic finish on each individual plume of down. This results in insulation that stays dry longer and dries faster.
