Best Ultralight Sleeping Bags and Quilts of 2019

Reviewed in 2019

Montbell’s Down Hugger couldn’t have a more appropriate name. A creative take on the standard mummy bag, the Down Hugger pairs diagonal panels of woven fabric with elasticized thread for a roomy, slightly stretchy bag that—you guessed it—hugs your body. The bag’s measurements (53-75 inches in the shoulders and 44-62 inches in the knees) indicate just how much it can expand and contract. As a result, it’s one of the best options for larger folks or side sleepers, but it can also insulate smaller bodies without the typical dead air space that can occur with overly roomy sleeping bags.

The Trek (formerly Appalician Trials.com) featured the Down Hugger 900 #5 in a review. Here's what reviewr Dylan Niknot had to say.

"The weight and volume of this sleeping bag are a huge selling point. Just about the size of a water bottle and only 1 pound of weight. The shell is treated with Polkatex to protect the insulation from light moisture. 900 FP down is used for insulation. The bag was surprisingly warm for the rating. I was very comfortable in this bag below the 46 degree comfort rating. I know we had nights in the middle and upper 30’s and I slept perfectly. I move around a lot in my sleep and never had issues with the bag limiting my movements. My knees never hit a stopping point of stretch like most mummy bags have. I simply loved this bag."
