Just because you don’t drill holes in your toothbrush or cut off excess straps from your backpack dosen’t mean you don’t care about traveling light. Instead of doing all those anal weight saving techniques, just buy the North Face Beeline 900 sleeping bag. Its so light you might just pack two tooth brushes for spite!

One of the first things you may notice is that the North Face Beeline 900 sleeping bag dosen’t have a zipper. That’s because the North Face guys took care of all the anal light weight stuff for you. That’s right, theres no zipper on the North Face Beeline 900 sleeping bag to help make it lighter. In fact, the North Face logo is heat transferred on the bag instead of sew; to save even more weight.

Keeping the North Face Beeline 900 sleeping bag light and warm is the 900 fill power down. This light and high quality down allow the North Face Beeline 900 sleeping bag to be more compressible and light weight. The trapezoidal baffle construction helps to keep the down evenly distributed and eliminate cold spots.

I love these three season, lightweight bags. Short of sleeping in the snow, I’ll sleep in one of these just about anywhere. I save weight on colder trips by just sleeping in my clothes in this bag and stay perfectly toasty.
