Designed by the trusted sleeping pad kings at Therm-a-Rest, the Questar bag is designed for moderately cold climbing trips such as Mount Baker in the summer, or for trips where insulated shelters are provided like on Mount Elbrus.
It features zoned insulation to maximize thermal efficiency and minimize weight, Nikwax Hydrophobic Down for nearly waterproof performance, and Therm-a-Rest's proprietary SynergyLink Connectors. The SynergyLink system can quickly be fixed to your sleeping pad, ensuring that you no longer slide or roll off of your pad at night. For traditionalists or those looking to save further ounces, this feature is modular, and can be removed within seconds.
