It's the age old question: Do you take a warm, comfy sleeping bag that's heavy and doesn't compress very well or a lightweight bag that isn't quite warm enough' Weighing only 3lb 2oz and featuring eight inches of loft, the Lynx MF Sleeping Bag solves the problem. Western Mountaineering stuffed this winter sleeping bag with ultralight, ultra compressible 850-fill down, which keeps you warm down to -10F. A full-length draft tube and overstuffed draft collar help seal in heat for even more warmth. The microfiber shell not only contributes to the Lynx MF's light weight, it resists wind and moisture and breathes well, preserving the down's loft.

Possibly the warmest 3 pound bag on earth At only just 2 ounces over 3 pounds and compressed to roughly the size of a basketball it is difficult to imagine that the Western Mountaineering Lynx can really be warm down to 10 degrees below freezing. Laid out, the Lynx MF's 32 oz. of premium down lofts to surround you with an outrageous 8.5 inches of comfortable loft. In addition to copious amounts of premium down, a full down collar keeps heat from escaping at the neck and shoulder section of the bag. A well filled draft tube at the zipper prevents heat loss and zipper snags. Don't be fooled by the low weight, the Lynx is one toasty warm bag. If you treat your sleeping bags like Linus treats his blanket, you'll have nothing to worry about with the Lynx MF. Durability can be attributed to excellent craftsmanship and the strong yet water resistant Microfiber construction. Microfiber fabric is very water resistant because it is constructed with an extremely high thread count of dense yarns. Each microfiber yarn has many more filaments than a normal nylon or polyester yarn of equivalent size. Woven into high thread count material, it becomes a fabric that really keeps wind and water out. Since there is no coating or laminate on the material, it is highly breathable. The fabric construction is responsible for weatherproofness, it's not something that can wear off, wash out or delaminate. This is the most technologically advanced non-laminated weather resistant fabric available. Western's Bristlecone will keep you warm and dry through years of use.

"Western Mountaineering Camp & Hike Lynx MF Sleeping Bag (850 Down)-Navy Blue-Small-Left 56LXMFLZ. Spring skiing is the best of both seasons and that corn snow is great for carving tele's. But when the sun goes down it often takes the spring with it. That's why you're using the new Lynx in MicroLite XP. This -10F bag weighs only 3 lbs. 2 oz. and has a shoulder girth of 62. It comes equipped with a plump down-filled collar. The V-Block Side Baffle insures perfect down distribution. And the well filled draft tube has a stiffening tape that prevents snags. This efficient bag with over 8 of loft is simply a bombshell of insulation and quite possibly the warmest three pound bag on the market."
