Montbell UL Spiral Down Hugger 0°F Degree Sleeping Bag

 
 

As the name would suggest, these 'hugger' sleeping bags are known for their snug fit. The elastic stitching and stretchy fabric make the bags warm and comfortable, without being constricting. If you’d like to save a little money and aren’t planning on staying out in extreme cold weather, you can always opt for a ‘hugger’ that’s rated for slightly warmer conditions.

Mountain Hardwear Lamina -30°F

 
 

This synthetic bag is for those of you who plan on sleeping in some very cold climates. The Thermic Micro fill makes the bag very compressible, while the water wicking outer lining will let you sleep outside in harsh conditions, even without a tent. The bag is fairly heavy when stuffed, but you’ll be glad for the extra warmth it provides when unfurled.
