The Kelty Light Year 15 Degree Down sleeping bag weighs only 2 lb 11 oz and compresses into a 9 x 17 stuff sack for easy packing. The Light Year is filled with 650 down. Down not only has a soft, comfortable feel, it has the best warmth-to-weight ratio of any insulation available. The feathers and fibers are known for their efficiency in trapping body heat and are very easily compressed, taking up less space in your pack. The one downside to this insulation is that it loses much of its ability to maintain warmth when it gets wet. Kelty's Light Year series of backpacking sleeping bags is designed to be ultralight, yet Kelty still manages to include features you've come to expect in a quality bag. For convenience, the Light Year series features Kelty's FatMan and Ribbon drawcords, where one cord is rounded and fat, the other is flat, so you can adjust the top or lower sections of the hood by feel when it's dark outside. Nylon stuff sack and cotton storage sacks are included. Men's regular size fits to 6' 0"".

Amazing warmth and comfort, this is easily the best sleeping bag I've owned. The down filling means this bag can be compacted to fit super tight spaces in your pack while offering tremendous insulation value. A good sleeping bag is one of the most important ways you can make yourself comfortable while camping and the Kelty Light Year is a great bag choice!
