This has to be the lightest, smallest sleeping bag that you can buy and use for serious hiking/camping/mountaineering. It stuffs down to the size of a football, weighs less than 2 lbs. and dries in a flash. Obviously, there is a compromise: this bag simply will not keep you warm enough to sleep below about 32 f., and anywhere around freezing you really should use it with some form of bivy sack or other supplemental bag. However, it does open the door for some really minimalist hiking possibilities (e.g., multi-day trips with a "day pack"). Well designed and constructed, although its lightweight materials might lessen durability.
