Patagonia Hybrid Sleeping Bag

If you are heading on an alpine climb, every pound and ounce counts. As a result, outdoorsmen have to find creative ways to cut down on the weight of their gear – and one of the more popular ways to do that is to use “elephants foot” sleeping bags like this one from Patagonia.

Weighing just 18 ounces (less than half of what bags usually come in at) it most definitely meets the requirement of being light and easy to pack. Yet, there is a whole lot more to recommend this bag other than just its super light weight. The foot of the bag is packed with 850 fill traceable duck down placed in three dimensional insulated tubes that make it so the down feathers are never compressed. To fend off cold feet, the Ventura California based brand made it so the inner part of the sleeping bag is smaller than the outer, so cold spots are avoided even when the bag is used while standing up. The upper area of the bag is made of a tough ripstop nylon with a durable water repellent finish, so you can zip the bag up nice and tight. Prices are set at $300. [Purchase]
