Backcountry Body Bag

The Kifaru Backcountry Body Bag is great as a stand alone sleeping bag or ground cloth. Our Apex insulation is continuous filament – so strong that no quilting is needed. Plus, it has a better “feel” and draping capabilities – no quilting, so there are no cold spots. Coupled with our water resistant RhinoSkin Shell, you get immediate warmth and protection. Best yet, the Body Bag is very compressible in one of our Stuff Sacks (sold separately) due to the state of the art materials used. Same great stuff we use in our center zip sleeping bags.

Construction: Our proprietary RhinoSkin™ – the lightest/toughest material available with an excellent DWR finish for water resistance, and the two tone color scheme provides more blending latitude.
Insulation: We use Apex insulation on the Backcountry Body Bag. Continuous filaments provide superior strength, moisture resistance, durability, thermal efficiency and excellent packing efficiency as compared to down or cut staple insulation.

    I love the bag and Kifaru products. Ideal dimensions for a bigger guy. Materials are top notch. The ability To goose zipper side on this bag would make it a 5 for sure. I realize this is more work for Kifaru but having options when you buy high quality gear (Kifaru is ) is ideal. It’s the little things.

    Almost hit a home run here. I’d call this a 35 degree bag for me, if it hits freezing I get cold. I really like the simple design, ample foot box and I cinch just the top side to get it bunched up around my head. I’ve gone to bed wet multiple times and woke up dry, the materials are primo. I do, however, get very frustrated with the zipper snagging whilst trying to zip it up, and that knocks down the rating for me. I’d love to see a non-binding strip added around the zipper to keep the fabric from binding up.
