How much should a lightweight sleeping bag weigh?
Ideally, your sleeping bag should weigh 1.3 kgs or less, with more compact options helping you save on valuable space. It also obviously results in less weight on your back, making your pack easier to carry when hiking for long periods or across particularly difficult terrain.
With modern sleeping system technology, both down and synthetic fills can be extremely lightweight. There are many options available for overnight camping that will keep you warm without sacrificing on comfort. Keep in mind that if you are hiking in wetter conditions, a synthetic fill sleeping bag might be your safest bet – synthetic fills can also be more affordable. If you’re looking for natural, lightweight efficiency and know your sleeping bag is going to stay dry – you might want to consider down fill.
