Gelert X-Treme Lite 800

This synthetic sleeping bag from Gelert is only 800g, much less than many competitors, and also rather short. It doesn’t have a shoulder baffle, so is really only warm enough for summer or two-season use, but it has a nice hood with a drawcord closure. The soft feel of the nylon shell is good, too.

Verdict: A well-priced option for summer backpacking.
