Mountain Hardwear Ultralamina +45 Sleeping Bag

Mountain Hardwear Ultralamina +45 Sleeping Bag – A warm but light sleeping bag.
If you have ever eyed those tiny ultralight sleeping bags, but never picked one up because you didn’t think they could be warm enough, you might like to hear about the Mountain Hardwear Ultralamina +45 Sleeping Bag. You know the sleeping bags I am talking about. The ones that are so compressible that they can pack up into a stuff sack smaller than a football. The Mountain Hardwear Ultralamina +45 Sleeping Bag is one such bag that can pack up super small, but still offer you plenty of warmth. I guess great things do come in small packages!

Ok, so that last line was a bit lame, I know. But, it is the truth. The Mountain Hardwear Ultralamina +45 Sleeping Bag has so much to offer and it comes in such a small package. Lets talk about the size of this bad boy before we talk about how warm it is. The Mountain Hardwear Ultralamina +45 Sleeping Bag truly is an ultralight sleeping bag. When it is all said and done, this puppy barely registers on the scale at around 24 ounces! To make it even better, once it is fully compressed and in its cozy little stuff sack, the Mountain Hardwear Ultralamina +45 Sleeping Bag is only about 8×6 inches.

Granted you probably figured out that the Mountain Hardwear Ultralamina +45 Sleeping Bag was light and small if you have seen it in the store before. Your real question is probably how warm the Mountain Hardwear Ultralamina +45 Sleeping Bag is. I am here to tell you that it wont disappoint. The bag is filled with Thermic Micro fill which is warm and compressible. To make sure this fill stays in place, the bag uses welding and not sewing. this means there are less holes in the bag for moisture and cold to penetrate.

I don’t really have anything bad to say about the Mountain Hardwear Ultralamina +45 Sleeping Bag. I have loved it since day one. What is not to like about a warm sleeping bag that you can keep in your day pack? It certainly allows for more room or empty space in your pack, which is always nice. If you dont find it warm enough as is, you can always sleeping in some extra layers and you are sure to stay toasty.
