It won’t make you check the weather forecast every minute before you leave however it could be too hot for summer days. The ventilating zippers could help to increase the temperature range of the bag but they also make a significant difference in weight. When compared to the similar-priced Bishop Pass above, the Sawtooth is more than a half pound larger, and much heavier and has just a few more ounces down. The added features and the extra space (the Marmot is 59 in. at the hips in comparison to. Mountain Hardwear’s 53 inches). Mountain Hardwear’s 53 inches.) might be worthwhile for a few. If you are looking for a more powerful option to fill your tank from Marmot look into their higher-end Hydrogen.
