Mountain Equipment Helium 800 -15C Sleeping Bag: 5F Degree Down


Product Details

The Mountain Equipment Helium 800 -15C Sleeping Bag is redesigned with a new Alpine Fit, featuring a progressive tapering to save warmth and space. Warm, lightweight down insulation surrounds you in a pleasant cocoon, while the 5-baffled hood and draft collar ensure that you stay as warm as possible. The 3/4 length side zipper is long enough for convenience, but not so much that you're losing warmth unnecessarily.

Price : $ 450

Three Season Sleeping Bags Checklist

Down vs. Synthetic. The age-old question. Down bags pack down tighter and are a few ounces lighter. On the negative side, they are useless when wet, often take forever to dry (and many can't be tossed into a dryer), and tend to be more expensive.
Heading Out in Wet Weather? Then get a synthetic sleeping bag...period. This way, if your bag gets wet, you won't have a useless sleeping bag for the rest of your trip.
Float Camping? Again...get a synthetic bag. Be a bummer to have your bag end up in the water and become useless for the rest of your float trip.
Where Ounces and Packability Matter. Then go with a goose down bag. This is especially true if you are a bike camper, climber or camp in the desert.
