  Marmot, Teton Women’s Review By the Everest GearGal


Marmot has revolutionized the sleeping bag for women. The Teton is cut specifically to contour to a women’s body. There is more insulation than in unisex bags in areas where women need it most, the hood, core of body and foot box. This mummy bag is stuffed full with 600 fill goose down and comfort rated to 0°. Ladies, if you are a cold sleeper this is an excellent three season bag. For those of you lucky enough to purr through the night, the Teton is a versatile, lightweight, year round bag.  

The Teton is feature packed with comfort at the forefront. You will sleep through the night due to the ground level side seams and X-static® draft tube, keeping the cool mountain breeze only in your dreams. With the cold air trapped out, the down filled collar keeps your bodies heat trapped in. The Nautilus 6-baffle hood wraps the head in 6 luxurious chambers of down and includes an easy access cord for better positioning and fit without having any extremity leave the bag.  And the cold feet that have come to be expected during a night on the trail are a thing of the past, now that there is a trapezoidal footbox with enough room for a built in heater pocket to be filled with heat packets. Should the night be restless with visions of summits ahead this bag also includes locking zippers, so toss and turn as much as you may the zippers won’t fall and let the night air in. 

Don’t get the wrong idea; though this bag may sound warm and fuzzy on the inside, the outside is engineered using stretch tricot baffles. These baffles insure ultimate strength, durability and bag life. And of course, the Teton comes with its own stuff sack for safe keeping in the backpack and a storage sack to let the bag breath while in the closet.  

Marmot left no small details out when creating this bag. From stash packets and hang loops, to a Velcro®-free face muff this bag has it all, everything a women could hope for. The only thing possibly designed with a man in mind on this women’s masterpiece is the two-way zipper sliders, just incase your climbing partner wants to steal some of your warmth.
