Therm-a-Rest Auriga Blanket: 35 Degree Down


Product Details

Weight matters even more when the weather's warm. Fortunately, that's when the Therm-A-Rest Auriga Blanket really shines. Rated at 35 degrees Fahrenheit, the Auriga is made with ultralight, ultra-packable 750 fill-power goose down to keep you moving fast and light. The Auriga packs a generous amount of heat, though, considering it only weighs about a pound and a half. Full-length draft tubes and snap-and-loop integration with most camp mattresses eliminate drafts, and the blanket design won't restrict movement.

Price : $ 269.95

Lightweight Sleeping Bags Checklist

Sure It's Warm Enough? Lightweight bags are meant for use in weather between 30-50 degrees. But, remember, it's always prudent to add on at least 10 degrees to the bags rating. Thus, a bag rated to 40 degrees might only keep you warm in 50 degree weather.
Down or Synthetic? Each have their advantages. Down is less bulky and weighs a few ounces less. Synthetic costs less (usually) and is easier to dry - you can just toss it in the dryer.
Don't Forget the Sleeping Pad! A sleeping bag is useless without a sleeping pad. So, if you don't already have a sleeping pad, get one. For lightweight sleeping bags (thus used in warm weather), you don't need a super thick or winter-style one.
Ideal Uses for a Lightweight Bag. Where you know...for sure...that the temperature will stay at least 10-15 degrees above the sleeping bags rating. And, where every ounce and cubic inch of space is at a premium. Lightweight bags are often used by climbers and bike campers/travelers. For backpacking in the mountains, a lightweight bag is NOT recommended!
