Sea To Summit - XTI (Spring 2013)
Quick OverviewVersatile sleeping bag, featuring all the latest technical advancements.
The Traverse series is a versatile bag, designed for a broad range of activities in a variety of environments, filled with 850+ Loft European Goose Down. Designed with a relaxed mummy shape, the Traverse series offers comfort in the widest range of temperatures. With the ability to be opened out into a full duvet when sleeping in huts and zippered up for winter camping in sub-zero conditions the Traverse series can be used all year round.
The oversized neck-collar and hoodseal keep drafts out, minimizing heat loss around the face. The oversized zipper draft tube is fitted with the lightest and stiffest anti-snag material for smooth operation. A security pocket located inside the bag is easily accessible, ideal for stowing electronics to preserve battery performance in extreme cold. Using side block baffle construction to maintain a 60/40 fill ratio, more down is located in the top of the bag for maximum insulation. The soft touch lining fabric is down proof by construction and highly breathable offering a comfortable sleep. The Traverse relaxed mummy shape is cut with a larger hood, broader shoulders and large chest to provide a more comfortable sleeping bag while maintaining thermal efficiency. The addition of a full length side and foot zip allow for conversion from a traditional winter mummy shaped bag to a duvet offering the greatest versatility in a cold weather sleeping bag.

Value Quality Price
After researching and trying many "Top rated" 3 season sleeping bags in store, I chose to order the XTI bag online even though I could not find a sample to slip into. I am 6 feet tall, 165 pounds and unfortunately the regular bag is 1-2 inches too short. When I zip up the hood, it pulls on the foot box, squishing my toes slightly. It fits snug around my chest but enough room for a base layer and sweater.
So far, I have only used the XTI at 10'C / 50'f. I am happy to say I did not sweat. The full wrap around zip is a great feature to regulate body temperature. I expect it to do well in cold weather as well as the down really does envelop you when all zipped up.
Finally, to put the above into perspective. I used to own a synthetic long & wide sleeping bag, but I would be cold way above its temperature rating. I found it difficult to find an efficient and comfortable sleeping position in warmer weather.
The versatility and features of the XTI convinced me to buy it. It's within an inch of being perfect.
