Sleeping Bag and Pad Ratings with Matt Wymer


This week we sit down with Matt Wymer and talk about sleep systems. Specifically we talk about understanding the temperature ratings that are given by companies because sometimes it's more than meets the eye. A 30 degree sleeping bag from one company may not be the same 30 degree rating from another. Also with sleeping pads, your pad isn't just for comfort! Sleeping pads play a large role insulating as well. All of that is covered on this episode, so tune in!You can find Matt's articles for Understanding Sleeping Bag Temperature Ratings here ->                    Part 1. https://www.rokslide.com/understanding-sleeping-bag-temperature-rating-part-i/                        Part 2. https://www.rokslide.com/my-sleep-systems-part-ii/Find more articles from Matt, here -> https://www.rokslide.com/author/high-country/Join the discussion for this podcast on the forum!Matt's Sleep Systems for different times of year - 1:05Sleeping Bag Ratings - 3:00Finding your system - 6:00Down vs Synthetic - 7:20Matt's sleeping bags - 9:50Quilt vs Bag - 10:50Sleeping Pads - 12:20Tips for keeping warm - 20:15Kifaru Slick 0 Synthetic Bag - https://store.kifaru.net/slick-bag-p73.aspxHammock Gear Down Quilt - https://www.hammockgear.com/insulation/Mountain Hardwear UltraLamina 15 - https://www.mountainhardwear.com/search?q=laminaMarmot Plasma Bag - https://www.rei.com/product/864086/marmot-plasma-15-sleeping-bag

We speak with Matt about the differences between hunting in the Lower 48 and hunting in Alaska. Matt, like us, is a gear junkie, so we spend some time discussing various aspects of gear as well. We also get to talk about the animal that Matt loves to hunt most — Dall Sheep. Enjoy this episode and be sure to check out the show notes at http://exomountaingear.com/29
