Giveaway: DriDown Zissou 6 Sleeping Bag

By: on December 30, 2013

Enter to win your 700-fill of feathers with a Sierra Designs DriDown Zissou 6 sleeping bag (a $340 value!)

About Sierra Designs' DriDown Zissou 6 Sleeping Bag

Unlike standard down mummy wraps, Sierra Designs' DriDown Zissou 6 sleeping bag is filled with 30 ounces of feathered friend under-fluff for superior insulation, higher loft, and, most importantly, fast drying in wet and wintery conditions.

DriDown begins as regular down, but pre-stuffing each individual plume receives a molecular level polymer treatment to create a hydrophobic finish. In other words, it gets zapped with a water-resistant force field that rejects the infiltration of water like Moses walking into the Red Sea. Or at least better than untreated gear. The Zissou 6 is designed both to stay dry longer and get dry faster than other down fills, the effect of which keeps its occupants warmer in any environment.

The sleeping bag has a rated temperature low for comfort of 19 degrees F, and a usage lower limit of 6 degrees F. It measures 78" long and weighs just over 3 pounds.

Get a better sense of the Zissou 6's look, feel, and benefits in the video above. Note that the sleeping bag Dude is giving away is slight variation of it. Steve from Backcountry Edge and his award-worthy beard (second Dude appearance for Steve!) are showing the 600-fill Zissou 12; the Zissou 6, 2013 edition has 700-fill down.
