Pick of the Pack: Sleepings Bags

1. Kelty Lightyear XP 40 Synthetic ($109.95) - It's a sleeping bag, its not a piece of junk super heavy or bulky. It's not especially warm or light, but the price is right, provided the conditions are too.
2. REI Halo 40 Down ($209.00) - If the skies are friendly you don't nescessarily need a 10 degree bag most summer nights, even in the mountains. The Halo lets you save big weight and go way light should the weather go along with the plan.
3. TNF Bighorn 20 Synthetic ($99.00) - It's a little heavy, it's a little big, it's not epicly warm, but its SUPER CHEAP!

4. GoLite Adrenaline 20 Down ($370.00) - 1lb 14oz, 20 degees, waterproof. What else can I say?
5. Mountain Hardwear UltraLamina 15 Synthetic ($205.00) - Surprisingly this bag is just as light as its down counterparts only it's less expensive. There's no catch.
6. Marmot Sawtooth 15 Down ($209.00) - Well Designed, Light, Warm, and oh so versatile. For a reasonable price, this could be THE bag to fit almost any need.

7. TNF Snowshoe 0 Synthetic ($149.93) - Quite a bargain really however there are mixed reviews about its durability over time. Considering the cost of a comparable bag, it's a calculated risk.
8. Marmot Never Summer 0 Down ($269.00) - A solid performer in every category, warm, light, small, and actually pretty reasonably priced considering how warm, light, and small it is.
9. Western Mountaineering Bison GWS -40 Down ($865.00) - The king daddy of sleeping bags. It's not a typo, it's really rated negative fourty degrees! Probably not necessary unless your climbing a 20,000ft peak, but hey...pretty cool anyway.
