Retail Price: Doubler–3 season: $49, summer wt: $39 Expander–3 season: $39
Specs per manufacturer: The Expander is for folks who simply want more room. It offers individuals an additional 28″ across the shoulders; it is great for pregnant or nursing mothers, and for snuggling with a toddler or dog. Two expanders zipped together equals a Doubler, a kid’s bag or a bivy. The Doubler allows couples to sleep together warmly and comfortably in one sleeping bag. The design gives you room where you need it most: almost five feet across the shoulders and hips. The Doubler also zips into itself to create a separate child’s bag or bivy.
