Mountain Equipment Xero 200 Sleeping Bag: 32 Degree Down


Product Details

Designed for fast alpine climbs and ultralight thru-hikes where every ounce counts, the Mountain Equipment Xero 200 Sleeping Bag is the ideal sleeping bag for demanding, warm weather adventures. With an EN comfort rating 43-degrees, this bag is ideal for mid-summer alpine climbs, as well as late spring, summer, and fall backpacking trips. The bag is insulated with high quality 850-fill goose down for exceptional comfort, compressibility, and minimal weight. The Xero line of sleeping bags is Mountain Equipment's lightest line of bags. The Xero 200 features Mountain Equipment's EXL technology, which in short is a stretch stitching that not only improves the loft of the down, but also increases thermal efficiency and the overall comfort of the bag. The hood is composed of seven baffles designed to limit down migration and to reduce heat loss. A substantial neck collar helps to trap heat, while a draft tube runs the full-length of the zipper for even more heat retention. The side seams of the bag are located at ground level in order to maximize thermal efficiency. Slanted box wall baffles prevent down migration and ensure excellent insulation. The foot of the bag is composed of four baffles to further maximize the efficiency of the down. The Xero 200 comes with a waterproof roll-top compression sack and boasts an impressive trail weight of just 22 ounces in its regular size. The bag also includes a mesh storage sack.

Price : $ 300

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.
