Q:I'm planning on taking a sleeping bag for a trip to Guatemala. It would be used as a supplement to any bedding in a tiny remote hotel in the mountains areas. It needs to pack small and have a full zipper so it could be used as a blanket. Is this the bag you would recommend or do you have a different model? I'm also looking for a small pillow to pack along, as well. Help!
A:30 F might be a bit warm for Guatemala. If you sleep cold then it may be a good choice. If you sleep warm you may be able to get a more compact bag like the Marmot Mavericks 40 Degree Semi-Rectangular Sleeping Bag Regular

A:We suggest washing the bag in a front loading (non-agitator), heavy duty, commercial washer. Use a mild detergent. We suggest using ?? to ?? as much detergent as instructed on the container, depending on how soiled the bag is. Do not use bleach. Use cool or cold water setting, delicate or gentle cycle. For best results, run the bag through one or two extra rinse cycles without detergent. Remove from washer carefully in a bundle.

The bag may also be line dried after being sufficiently spin dried to remove most of the water.
