Vireo Zipperless Sleeping Bag

Apr 14, 2017

Anyone who has gone on a long backpacking trip knows the value of minimizing your load weight as much as possible. But, once you get down to the essentials, it can be difficult to figure out ways to cut the burden even further. Luckily, the folks at Feathered Friends are doing their part to help out with the creation of their super light line of Vireo sleeping bags.

This bag isn’t bogged down with zippers or a hood, which means the brand could get its weight down to under a pound. Which is pretty incredible when you consider that it’s still rated at 45ºF for the upper half and 25ºF for the lower. The exterior of the UL version is made from a water-resistant breathable Pertex Endurance fabric and it is stuffed with real 950+ fill power goose down. It also comes in a slightly different Nano version, which is made from a Schoeller NanoSphere fabric and is stuffed with 900+ goose down – though it is rated the same. Whichever version you choose, your back will thank you the next time you have to make the long haul.

Purchase: $309+
