Kelty Dualist 35 Sleeping Bag: 35 Degree ThermaDri
Sure, the Kelty Dualist 35 Degree ThermaDri Sleeping Bag is a hybrid, but not in some, "doesn't really do anything well," sense. Indeed, its combination of 550-fill DriDown and ThermaPro synthetic insulation actually make it lighter and more packable than a pure synthetic bag and more water-resistant and durable than a traditional down bag. The water-resistant down is layered inside the polyester taffeta shell, while the ThermaPro sits next to your body, providing plenty of warmth and cushioning. This combo gives the Dualist a three-season-worthy EN rating of 34 degrees, so you can comfortably take it on most spring, summer, and fall excursions without worrying about waking up shivering. A zippered draft tube, draft collar, and neck drawcord make sure your hard-earned heat doesn't escape, while the two-way no-snag zipper will save you the hassle of having to perform emergency zipper surgery in the middle of a chilly night.

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
||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
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!
