Why people love it

  • Wonderfully lightweight 
  • Perfectly warm and comfortable 
  • Packs down well; highly Compressible 


Some users find this mummy-style bag to have a snugger-than-usual leg space (which isn’t great for restless sleepers). 


This is our top-pick for several reasons. For a start, the price is not bad at all – at least when it’s on sale. Still, we think this backpacking sleeping bag is worth the MSRP of $300.

We’re huge fans of the water-resilience which comes from both the cover and the down insulation. It’s cozily warm for a 3-season sleeping bag and can withstand temperatures down to 19ºF – which is about as low as it gets before you start looking at extreme camping bags.

Now, it’s not tiny when compressed, taking up about 14L of space, but we totally forgive the folks at Rei for that – especially as the zipper runs smooth and the yoke-shaped draft collar has cords in the hood for awesome comfort.

Fill or insulation type: 700-fill duck down in a ripstop nylon shell.

Temperature rating: The EN lower limit is 19ºF and the EN comfort temperature is 30ºF. 

Water resistant: Water resistant shell combined with water resistant duck down.

Shape, size, and weight: This sleeping bag is mummy shaped. The regular measures 72”L x 60”W (shoulder), 55”W (hip), and weighs 1lb 13oz. The long measures 78”L x 60”W (shoulder), 55”W (hip), and weighs 1lb 15oz. The packs down size is 8” x 17” (14L).

Colors available: Castlerock.

Price: MSRP $300, but you’ll typically pay less.
