NEMO Riff 15 Sleeping Bag

Generally, there are two overarching types of sleeping bags: mummy-style (the lightweight backpacking-friendly variety) and rectangular (a bit unwieldy, but spacious and comfortable). They both have their plusses and minuses, so it can be hard to choose which you should bring with you the next time you hit the campsite – which usually results in sacrifice one way or the other. Instead, get yourself NEMO’s new Riff 15-degree rated sleeping bag and get the best of both worlds with virtually zero drawbacks.

At 2 pounds and 9 ounces (or 10 ounces for the longer version), this isn’t the most lightweight backpacking sleeper on the market, but it’s still hardly an imposition when you consider what it has to offer otherwise. For instance, the Riff’s unique spoon shape gives it extra knee and elbow room, perfect for anyone who doesn’t want to be confined to sleeping on your back. It’s also crafted with 20D ripstop nylon, is stuffed with hydrophobic 800-fill down with Nikwax, and sports a waterproof footbox to keep you nice and cozy and dry. But our favorite part of this bag (because we tend to get warm even when it’s chilly out) is that it comes with dual integrated Thermal Gills to offer some heat ventilation without compromising full-body coverage. The Riff 15 sleeping bag retails starting at $400.

Purchase: $400+
