Welcome to the future of sleeping bag design. The 900 Fill Power Down Plasma Series. Marmot continues to pioneer sleeping bag technology with a major new development of two new bags in our range. The new Plasma sleeping bags are the most technologically advanced bags on the market! The new design features shown below combine to make the warmest, lightest and most functional bag possible.

+Plasma 30 , 19 kb

Flow Gate Construction – enables the user to manually shift the down to preferred locations, customizing the sleeping system to each individual.

Vertical Baffles – optimizes thermal performance and significantly reduces weight compared to the “classic” baffle construction.

Wrap Around Footbox – vaults the foot area to prevent the compression of down; extending the comfort range, and increasing the thermal value over a full night's sleep.

900 Fill Power Down – This is the largest down cluster, has the lowest trace of feather, and has the highest Fill Power available in the Industry!

Pertex Quantum Fabrics – offers the best strength to weight ratio of fine denier fabric, is finished with a “Super” Durable Water Repellency, increases packability by 50%, and reduces the weight of standard sleeping bag fabrics by 25 – 50%.
