Sleeping bag weight
« on: February 03, 2020, 09:23:20 PM »
Curious to see what the results are on this. Just picked up a new bag, little heavier than I would prefer but it was a good deal. Klymat 0 synthetic for 98 bucks if anyone is in the market..

the weights are relative to cold rating. A summer bag is going to be far lighter than a winter bag.

I have an older Marmot Down 30 degree bag. Weighs 1# 11oz. I use this bag for everything from 60's into single digits. Different layers on depending on temp drop

I HAVE 2 Feathered Friends bags. One 20 degree bag (2-3 lbs) for most of my backpacking/hunting and one -20 bag (4-5 lbs) for when things are expected to be VERY cold.

I run a 26oz 20degree quilt
For cold or wet weather, I run a 7oz custom bivy.
Pad is 16oz r4.2

For cold/wet I run that combo and stay very comfortable with a merino base layer bottom and shirt at 15 degrees.  Total setup is 3lbs 5 oz with the sacks included.

Summer camping, I ditch the bivy and run a cuben ground sheet at 3 oz.  Though I always keep the bivy in my pack just incase weather rolls in or it gets colder than expected.  At only 7 oz its worth carrying it for me.   

I went through a few different setups before landing on this and it works perfect for me and all my hunting situations.

I have two, a light quilt and a heavy winter GoreTex down bag.  I haven't weighted either, the former weighs next to nothing and the latter I would carry even if it weighed 20 pounds.

I use a 15* Marmot Helium that weighs about 2lbs for pretty much everything. When it gets cold I use a liner and wear my long underwear and a beanie. I love that sleeping bag.

I use an EE quilt, supposed to be 0 degree but I get cold, so i just wear my under clothes to bed and stay warm.  Hate sleeping in clothes and socks but it works.

Light in the pack, freeze all night long, but it is worth it...

Sleeping bag is one of those areas that I will gladly carry an extra pound of weight or so to stay warm.  Im personally not a fan of down for sleeping bags.

Love my kifaru slick bag but it does weigh almost 3 pounds

Yeah I seem to have a bit of an allergy to down and checked it off the list from the get go. Sounds like it works well for most people unless it gets wet
