If you’re going camping, you have enough gear to haul around. Wouldn’t finding the best ultralight sleeping bags make things just a little easier for you? Don’t worry! We researched some of the best-selling and popular brands to put together this ultralight sleeping bag review all to help you find the right one for you. Before we get started, let’s take a look at some of the things you need to know before you shop.
Seasons: We expect these sleeping bags to be great for spring and summer. After all, they’re ultra-lightweight. But, it might surprise you to find out that a few of them are rated for use in winter.
Temperature: The way that temperature ratings are done on sleeping bags is by selecting the temperature at which most people would feel comfortable sleeping in their particular bed. So, a bag rated 20 degrees F would keep most people warm enough at 20 degrees F.
Color Options: A sleeping bag in a pretty color isn’t going to change how warm or comfortable it is to sleep in. But the right bright color can make the sleeping back all that much more awesome.
Waterproof: If you’re planning to use your sleeping bag year round and not just in the summer, getting one that’s waterproof is essential. You never know what kind of rain and snow can come when the summer days end.
Size: Because you’re likely going to be carrying this sleeping bag around with you, we thought it was important to know the dimensions of each bag when compressed. The smaller and more compact, the better.
Weight - Again, keep in mind you are going to have to carry your sleeping bag somewhat. It might be on be on a backpacking trip, from your car to the campsite, or even just to a sleepover in your living room.
