Most outdoor enthusiasts actively try to cut down on weight when they prepare for their trips, and a great way to achieve a lighter backpack is to use an “elephant’s foot” sleeping bag. This offering from Patagonia tips the scales at just 18 ounces, and yet it can provide a comfortable sleeping experience even during harsh weather conditions.
The bag’s foot flaunts 850 fill traceable duck down that was inserted into three-dimensional insulated tubes, which make sure that the down feathers are never compressed. In order to keep the feet warm at all times, the brand made the inner part of the bag smaller than the outer side, which means that cold spots are out of the question even when the user stands up. As for the bag’s upper area, it was put together using ripstop nylon that flaunts a water repellent finish.
