Ferrino H.L. Micro

rated 5.0 of 5 stars

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.

Design: Mummy
Fill: Polarguard HV
Temperature Rating: 32 f
Weight: Less than 2 lbs.
Price Paid: $99

Used on last 1500 miles of AT, wish had from start. Easy to stuff into about 6"x9" ball! In colder weather layered with fleece top/bottom/cap which I also used for other purposes. In warm weather used $3 bug head net I kept in inner storage pocket of bites, didn't need tent. Worked good when got wet one night, and dried quick in sun. Wicks well on warm humid nights, doesn't hold odors, and can gentle launder. Oh yes!

If can't get Ferrino brand, do get bag with thermolite extreme from quality manufacturer (avoid seam unravel, fill travel from bad baffle design, etc).

Awesome bag. It's warmer than I thought it would be, and super compact. Durable, and fairly stink resistant.
