Is the shell waterproof?
JIM E HELLO.... no it is not waterproof. Ultimately it is a great sleeping bag .
WILLIAM A The shell is not waterproof. Since the cosmic is such an incredible sleeping bag for the money, I purchased the goretex army issue bivy sac to put over the cosmic to keep it dry.
JACOB T Probably not. And once down gets wet, youre in trouble. Protect it from water.
BRUCE M Yes, it seems to be. I took a handful of water and rubbed it into the shell, brushed it off, and then placed it to my cheek and it felt dry. I then dripped more water on the same spot and it flow right off. Short of submerging it in a tub of water, it looks pretty waterproof.
DAVID H No. The shell is not waterproof.
ANDREW N No I don't believe it is. I ended up spraying Nikwax outside the shell to make it somewhat water resistant but the outer bag material (according to the Kelty website specs) is just nylon taffeta. A waterproof down bag is probably going to run quite a bit more money but this is an outstanding value for the price and quality.
ANGELA P No, the shell is not waterproof. However, it is a great bag! I used it in temps from 25-50 for a three week trip, and just put on more layers when it was cold. It's light, compactable, and the dots on the print are great fun!
LASYA S No, it is not water proof but water/mist will bead up.
BROOKE S The shell is not waterproof or water resistent. Hope this is helpful!
MIKE W I really doubt it. I never let a sleeping bag get close to water. It's what I sleep in. In my backpack it is always packed in a trash bag. But as for the bag, I love it. Lightweight, comapact and a warm bag for the money.
RICHARD C No, but this bag is super comfortable!
JOSEPH S No the shell isn't waterproof, but if you're willing to sacrifice that, its a great backpacking bag. very light and the downe fill makes it very compressable
STEPHEN B No, the shell is not waterproof. I bought a waterproof compression sack to pack it in.
ALEXANDER B The shell is not water-proof nor is it supposed to be. I have not heard to this day of waterproof sleeping bags.
It might repel some light drizzle, but that's about it.
You might consider a water-proof tent.
STEPHEN R B No it is not waterproof, filling is sparse at sewn seams as well. Better bag is no frills down REI bag.
