The North Face Superlight Sleeping Bag: 35 Degree Down


Product Details

The North Face's Superlight Sleeping Bag stays true to its name at a little over one pound for ultralight backpackers. Despite its ultralight status, the Superlight still boasts plenty of protection for wet weather, like the ProDown treatment that helps the lofty 800-fill insulation retain its warmth in damp conditions. Neovent Air fabric assists the footbox and hood with extra water-resistance against the tent's moisture-riddled walls. A performance mummy cut saves weight without interfering your much-needed sleep, and semi-continuous baffles reduce weight even more. The North Face also added a cinch-cord at the hood, a protective draft collar, a draft overlap, and an internal pocket to insulate electronics and valuables.

Price : $ 348.95

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!
