"New for spring 2018 and may establish a new sleeping bag category. SD describes it as a “zipperless mummy,” but it takes just as many design cues from top bags and quilts." –Andrew Skurka

The Cloud 800 / 20 is light and warm and doesn't make me feel trapped! I've been using a SD Backcountry Quilt most of the time, because it's super simple and easy. But I was looking for a bag that was a little more "snuggly" in colder, windier weather and didn't like the idea of being zipped into a mummy bag. Cloud has met the need. The shoulder-pocket thing is way easier to deal with than any zipper. It's more like the blanket at home, and does a blanket one better by being curved so that it naturally seals around the neck; and it all tucks in around me in a way that feels better than zipper bags, too. The Cloud definitely feels more like being "in" something than the BC-Quilt, and that's a compliment in breezy conditions. Yet I can still leap right out and chase raccoons away from the camp kitchen, which is awesome. (Not the raccoons. The ability to leap out.) Venting is as easy as folding down the "blanket" which I can do while mostly asleep, unlike when I have to fidget with a zipper in the dark. I'm 5'10" and average-ish build and it feels plenty roomy inside, though if I use the foot vent things do get a little tighter around the legs. I've never had a bag with a pad sleeve before and I liked how it helped keep everything aligned. But I also used the Cloud with an over-sized pad without the sleeve and that worked fine, too. Oh, and I made sure to use an insulated sleeping pad, since I've been using this 20-degree bag in cooler conditions, including the forests of the winter PNW where the DriDown got mildly tested and did just fine. So: Warm. Light. Not-zippered-in. Win. Greg on Mar 12th 2018
