Nice find.

Wow look at the weight Weight: Small 2lbs/13oz, Medium 2lbs/15 oz, Large 3lbs/1oz, X-Large 3lbs/3oz


hmm still skeptical a bit on it. is it a bit heavy? Sweaty for sure. Comfert level?


I would really like to take a look at one of these in a store.

Interesting idea, but looks a little mickey-mouse to me. Sleeping bag? Tent? Using those terms pretty loosely. Can't be much insulation in that "bag." If the weather is good, I need to wear a pack to carry it. I can put together a system that does the same thing for <1.8kg (5C down bag, gore-tex jacket, foam pad and lightweight bivy bag) but is the real deal. The downside to my light system is the cost.

When it rains the whole thing would get soaked before you even set it up.

There's actually no sleeping bag anywhere in the system: its a jacket with built in bivy bag. Lots of better ways to accomplish that within the 3 lb. weight range so long as you are carrying a pack
