So there’s a fair amount said about the Ice Breaker, but less so for the Ice Nino. The Nino is touted as an Ice Breaker Jnr, sort of, and yet some of the specs leave me with questions, specifically the amount of down used, though this may be attributed to it being a smaller bag. The cuin is the same, bag sizes differ and temperature ratings differ too, though FA temp ratings are in house and should be but a rough guide. Best guide I can gather is an add up of cuin, down-feather ratio, amount of down per gram used. To this end the Nino is said to be for “smaller framed people and the ladies”. Construction is otherwise identical.
Does anyone have experience with this item, specifically if you’re a lady or cold sleeper?
Also, experience in more inclement conditions (Drakensberg escarpment winters) would be grand.
Next, has anyone ever found zipping two bags together to make significant difference, or is that just a bogus sales pitch? (shared body heat is a real plus but the bags will also not cinch closed around the chest an neck area amounting to heat loss).
I appreciate though two bags may be the same two people and all conditions are not, still, input is desired.
Thanks in advance.
