The Stoic Somnus 15’s unique center-zip was designed with climbers in mind, but you don’t need to be a climber to appreciate its advantages. The easy-to-find center zip eliminates scrambling in the pitch black for nighttime venting or bathroom trips, and side sleepers won’t dig their hips into a hard zipper all night. (Caveat: the center zipper tends to dangle in your face if you don’t tuck it into the top flap.)
Its Quantum Pertex fabric is ultralight and durable, and 850-fill goose down—rated to 15 degrees—will keep you warm even in mild winter conditions. A zippered pouch in the footbox even holds a hot water bottle for extra warmth in a cold pinch. ($349; stoicgear.com)
