Sleeping bags can be heavy and bulky, not the sort of thing you want to lug around on a backpacking trip. However, if you buy one of these lightweight models, you’ll be able to pack it with ease.


At more than $400, the Thermarest Hyperion 32 doesn’t come cheap, but it’s a super lightweight bag that will keep you warm down to zero degrees Celsius. It weighs just 460 grams, which means you will hardly notice it’s in your bag, and it packs down to about the same size as a small bottle of water.


If you don’t have hundreds of dollars to splash, try the Vango Ultralite Pro 100. At just $75, it’s a real bargain, weighing 900 grams and boasting an impressive temperature rating of minus 10 degrees Celsius. It’s also compact enough when packed down.


The Mountain Hardwear Lamina -1C is rated to three degrees Celsius, weighing 936 grams and retailing for around $125. That extra weight is due to the use of tough materials that make this bag incredibly durable.


Snugpak’s Adventure Racing Softie is a zero degrees Celsius-rated bag that weighs 750 grams. It offers good value for money at around $140, and while the features are not extraordinary it’s a great all-rounder.
