Deep under Utah's Wasatch Mountains, there's a secret gear lab wheresmarter-than-NASA scientists shoot feathers, fabrics, and waterproof treatmentsaround a track at millions of miles per hour, crashing them together andobserving the products that result. One of the creations is the Marmot Atom 40-Degree Down Sleeping Bag, which spontaneously sprang into being when a gaggleof 850-fill goose down collided with some light and durable Pertex Microlight fabric, right before the whole thing smashed into a DWRcoating and Down Defender water-repellent treatment.
Once the scientists were able to conduct tests and confirm that the packagewas suitable for serious outdoor use in mild conditions, and that no new black holes had been created, the Atom wasready to be seen by the public. It's been drawing the most interest from backpackers and campers who like to go ultralight during the summer months, and during recent study,independent researchers have discovered a Nautilus six-baffle hood, insulated draft tube, and stretchy baffles around the head and feet, which seem to allow for comfortable movement during sleep. The Atom has also led to speculationthat, contrary to previous understanding, zippers and zipper guards were created in the initial microseconds of the universe's existence.
