SPERO 20 Mummy Bag

Weighing just less than 3.5 pounds, this bag’s synthetic insulation is over-lapped like roof shingles to provide a balance of comfort and warmth. The locking, two-way zipper allows for ventilation adjustment and the full-length insulated zipper draft tube defends against cold air intrusion from the anatomically-shaped hood down to the cozy bottom. Comes in 6-foot and 6.6-foot options. Retail: $130 – $140
