The Universe SL sleeping bag is
part of Mountain Hardwear’s Quantum collection. The Quantum series means there
is seasonal and temperature versatility in this mountaineering bag not found
in its competitors. The Universe SL is a 600-fill down bag with a 0 degree
comfort rating. However, by including an expandable and insulated 8-inch draft
tube this bag can be just as comfortable during a glacier whiteout as it can
be on a summer mountain side. The hot air comes out of the bag by unzipping
the tube in warmer temperatures and with the pull of a zipper can eliminate
dead air space in colder conditions.
Claustrophobia doesn’t stand
a chance in this adaptable mummy. In addition to the possible 8 inches of
elbow or layering room provided by the draft tube, the Universe SL sleeping
bag also has a multi-baffled footbox. The comfort footbox has improved fit by
allowing for natural foot position while the multi-baffle increases warmth.
Meanwhile, the eight-baffle tailored hood keeps the most important extremity
(the one that dreams of future summits) warm and comfortable throughout the
This waterproof and
breathable sleeping bag is as functional as it is durable. The tucked-stitched
baffles work to prevent threads from snagging and breaking while being packed,
unpacked or pulled out and under the stars. And one need not worry about
fabric catching during late night temperature regulating episodes or cold hand
camp set up, as the zipper snag guards keep your bag safe and snag free.
