This is an amazing bag! Very lightweight, very compact when stuffed.

The fit is interesting. It is wide in the shoulder to torso area, and tapers sharply down to the leg area. There is plenty of room for layering underneath. I can comfortably wear a Montrail Thermalwrap Jacket and Pants in this setup for colder use.

My only beef with the bag is the short (18") zipper, with no draft tube. You have to worm your way into the bag, but you do get used to it after a couple of trips. In colder temps, I found I was most comfortable with a microfleece sweater because of the lack of a draft tube. Its lightness, warmth, and packed size more than compensates for the zipper.

Overall, a really great bag, well worth the price tag. I'd give it 5 stars if it had a longer zipper.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Valandre aptly named its Ultralight Mirage 55-Degree Down Sleeping Bag because it looks a lot lighter than a bag that warms you in temps as low as 30-degrees Fahrenheit. Weighing close to one pound, the Mirage makes a fantastic ultralight companion when you backpack through the Uinta mountains or climb for days on big walls at Denali National Park. Almost thirteen ounces of 850+ goose down plus the sleeping bag's natural loft abilities mean you can look forward to many warm nights. Made with the same materials Valandre used in its bags that have seen the camps of K2 and Everest, the Mirage's polyamide ripstop shell and polyester ripstop lining keep the durability up and the weight down. A static drawcord is integrated in the hood to seal out cold weather when temps get too cold for you. The Mirage compresses down a surprising amount so you can bring extra fuel or a bottle of whiskey for celebrating your ascent.

The Mirage by Valandre will set the standards in its range. This time the benchmark is 26.3 oz total, a pack size of only 4.8 liters, and an extreme temperature rating at 1.4F (-17C). Field testers have taken the super light Mirage to 14F (-10C) wearing a base layer of underwear and a fleece vest. Even if these are not recommended temperature ratings (metabolism etc. should be considered), field tests have certainly underlined the extraordinary performance of the Mirage.

Aptly named, the Valandre Mirage sleeping bag is a regular trick of the eye. Combining the tubular bell construction with pre-cut, anatomically formed baffles and ultra-light rip stop fabric delivers a super-lightweight bag perfect for fast and light adventures in a wide range of weather conditions.

It may seem like it, but the Valandre Mirage is no trick of the eye - revolutionary fabrics and design create a sleeping bag that could stand up on its own without a single ounce of down fill (really!), but just to be nice, the designers at Valandre stuffed it with 800-fill French goose down.
