Company Info: Sierra Designs Gear

Sierra Designs is an outdoors company creating beginner to mid-level outdoors gear. Founded in California circa 1965 by Bob Swanson and George Marks, they are now based out of Broomsfield, Colorado. Sierra is owned by Kellwood (Apparel) Company, who also owns companies like Ames Taping Tools, Boston Market, and others. Their historical innovations include such inventions and designs such as:

  • The OG Flash Tent in 1983 – This was a two person tent that 40 years ago weighed 1800 grams (four pounds)!
  • Swift Clips – The plastic hooks that keep a tent suspended to poles.
  • They were the first to make a women’s specific bag in 1995. What? did women not exist before or something? Oh! It’s about size/proportions/fill zone density.
  • Zipperless sleeping bags in 2014

Sierra reports they offer a warranty on all products:

“Sierra Designs branded products (tents, backpacks, sleeping bags, and apparel) purchased only from authorized retailers are warranted to the original owner against manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship for the lifetime of the product.  This does not mean your lifetime, but the reasonable lifetime of the product, considering its age and how you have cared for and used it.”

Observations

Sierra’s Indy Pass Down 30° seems like a pretty fair starter sleeping bag. It doesn’t break the bank or back in terms of cost or weight, but is a little poofy at a claimed 18: stuff sack size. Let’s pray that compression can help a brother out when packing for a multi-day trip with this bag.

The Middle Mountain Mummy 20°, I’m not sure what to think of it. It’s a hundred bucks for a 20° bag, packing in at 16L, but due to being synthetic filled, it comes in at nearly 4lb (75% of that being fill weight). I feel like someone who buys this would be wanting to replace it sooner than later if they are at all a beginner enthusiast. Remember… Spend your money on the Big 3 (tent, sleeping bag, backpack).

The Mobile Mummy 15° comes in three different variations, Women’s, Regular, and Long. Sierra claims they take the same amount of space. It is interesting to see that the women’s bag has 113g more insulation filling than the regular sized bag, with comfort temperature rating also being significantly better. There’s a 25cm / 10 inch difference in the lengths between the women’s bag and the regular sized bag, but the stuff sack volume indicated on all the sleeping bags are the same. I find this very odd.

The bags have arm hole openings which are super cool in my book; help keep your body warm when wiggling around looking for a flashlight or snacks at three in the morning! There were four other models released for the Spring 2022 season, but as they do not fit with my desired field of coverage, you can feel free to do homework on them by clicking the links above. When perusing the site myself, I ran across this guy – The Nitro Quilt 35°.

NITRO QUILT 35° Blanket or bag you decide
ORIGINAL IMAGE SOURCE: SIERRA DESIGNS

The sleeping bag quilt blanket spaceship thing looks like the person resting in it is transforming into a polyester version of Mothra for real. Anyways, it’s 800 fill down and weighs 620g / 1.6lb. Ridiculous. It even packs down to 8.21L of space. If you still feel you’d get cold, they make a NITRO QUILT 20°, too. I’m very tempted to try this thing out.  If you own one, tell me in the comments!
