Sea To Summit Women’s Flame Ultralight Sleeping Bag
Sea To Summit’s ultralight women’s specific sleeping bag line is called the Flame series and consists of four options, the 9°C / 48°F Flame 1, the 2°C / 35°F Flame 2, the -4°C / 25°F Flame 3 and the -10°C / 15°F Flame 4. The Flame Sleeping Bags use down-filled Chambers and body-mapping to maximize warmth for a woman’s physiology. The women’s specific mummy fit is narrower at the shoulder and wider at the hips down to the knees which allows more room for a more natural and neutral sleep position. The shorter overall length and narrower girth in the shoulder area also help to reduce dead space and increase thermal efficiency.
The Flame series of sleeping bags covers 1, 2 and 3 season use and are all designed to be used with Sea To Summit’s Women’s Ether Light XT Insulated Air Sleeping Mat. Our top pick is the -9°C Flame Sleeping Bag because of its ultralight weight, compact size when compressed down into your pack and also the versatility of the temperature rating. It’s ideal in summer for alpine adventures and the perfect warmth for those spring and fall camping trips at lower elevations. Each of the Flame Ultralight Sleeping Bags comes with an Ultra-Sil (crazy light) compression bag for use in the field and a storage cell to properly store the bag when not in use.

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir UberLite Sleeping Pad
Weight is a big factor in the choice of any backcountry camping gear and Therm-a-Rest knows this, which is why they created the NeoAir UberLite Sleeping Pad. Updated for 2020, the NeoAir UberLite is the lightest insulated air sleeping pad available today and at just 340g / 12oz it’s impressively light yet still provides an R-value of 2.3. The Triangular Core Matrix used in the NeoAir UberLite provides the best warmth-to-weight ratio with a thickness of 6.4 cm / 2.5 inches which provides an incredible amount of comfort. To help optimize inflation/deflation Therm-a-Rest integrated their new high-performance WingLock valve into the NeoAir UberLite Sleeping Pad allowing it to inflate three times faster thanks to the large opening and one-way value.
This ultralight sleeping pad comes with a breath-saving pump sack to help speed up inflation without introducing moisture into the mat. There is also a compact stuff sack and field repair kit and like all Therm-a-Rest pads, the NeoAir UberLite is made in the USA.

Rovr RollR 60
Rovr is a relatively new company in the ever-popular cooler space but what makes their products different is that they have taken the standard cooler and made it not just tough as nails but also much more mobile. Their RollR 60 is a 60-quart rotationally moulded cooler that can retain ice for up to 10 days thanks to its use of high-density foam insulation. The patented design is so burly that it is certified grizzly bear-resistant and uses an airtight gasket and rubber latches to keep the contents secure.
Transporting the Rovr RollR 60 is made easy given that it has integrated all-terrain wheels that can go virtually anywhere you can. The 9-inch rubber tires have interchangeable tubes, aluminum hubs with 2 sealed bearings and a 12.5 mm stainless steel axle so they are as tough as the cooler itself. Just lift up the built-in aluminum pull handle with dual motocross-style grips and you can easily get the RollR 60 to where you need it regardless if it is a distant camp site in the woods or just over to the roadside picnic table.
Rovr includes the 'Wagon Bin' with the Rollr60 which allows you to carry all those items you need for a day at the beach or to enjoy a good meal in nature with friends. This collapsable fabric storage bin is affixed to the top of the RollR 60 so it’s always there when you need it and when you don’t it folds nicely out of the way.
If you want to accessorize the RollR 60 then our tops pic is the Essentials Pack ($69.99US) which includes the Dual Cup Holder, Prepping Board, and Stash Bag. The Dual Cup Holder can hold your beverage of choice or perhaps a bluetooth speaker with-out hampering access to the cooler itself, while the Prepping Board is ideal for making a sandwich or snack. The Stash Bag is a great place for all the small items you need and want to keep close at hand. Each of these accessories easily affixes to the Rollr 60 with Rovr’s innovative AnchR point system which provides multiple secure fixtures for any of these add-ons.
Certified grizzly bear resistant rotationally moulded body and lid with anchor pins for attaching prep station and accessories.
Up to 10 days of ice retention depending on use.

Gregory Paragon 68 Pack
Gregory has quickly become our favourite brand for packs after reviewing the Gregory Targhee 32 Ski Touring Pack so we thought it only made sense to check out one of their larger backpacking pack and we were equally impressed. The men’s Paragon and women’s Maven packs have gone through a full update for spring 2020 and use Gregory’s innovative new suspension system along with a long list of features.
Gregory’s adjustable FreeFloat Hybrid suspension system uses two flex panels located in the lower back of the Paragon’s body which attach to the hip belt and allow the pack to move and flex as you do. This Comfort Cradle hip belt with 3D construction provides a hotspot free carry while maintaining a body-hugging fit. In addition to this, the Paragon’s 3D foam back panel is cross-cut which allows air to flow through while minimizing contact with your back to reduce sweat. To ensure a stable carry the bulk of the pack (and its contents) weight are kept close to the pack’s centre of gravity which means you can carry a load comfortably.
Other features found on the Paragon 68 are the sunglass QuickStow located on the pack’s shoulder harness. This provides a quick and secure access to your shades when you need them most. The integrated internal hydration sleeve features Gregory’s SpeedClip system which is designed to accept their 3D Hydro reservoir but if you are a bottle carrier then the front and side stretch mesh pockets offer quick access to stay hydrated or easily access additional layers or rain gear if needed. The Paragon’s full-length side zipper offers easy access to the main compartment of the pack so you can easily get to items that always seem to be at the bottom of the pack.
The Paragon is also available in a 48 and 58 litre version incase the 68 is simply too much carrying capacity and for the ladies the Maven comes in a 45, 55 and 65 litre size.
FreeFloat breathable suspension with dynamic flex panels that move with the natural movements of your body
Adjustable torso length with 3D perforated foam breathable back panel
3D comfort cradle adjustable hip belt with 3D construction for hotspot free, body-hugging comfort
Perforated dual-density shoulder harness with sternum strap with hose clip
Wishbone alloy frame and fibreglass anti-barreling cross-stay for stable load management and torsional flexibility

Sierra Designs Meteor Lite 3 Tent
For Spring 2020 Sierra Designs has redesigned their Meteor 3 tent and shaved more than a half kilogram off the weight to create the new Meteor 'Lite' 3 Tent which has all the same great features only now with less weight. At just 1.79kg / 3lbs 15oz this two-door, two vestibule freestanding tent is impressively light-weight given how much interior space it provides. The secret lies in the DAC Featherlight hubbed and ridge pole structure which makes the Meteor’s walls vertical creating 29.8 square feet of interior space.
The Meteor Lite 3 Tent is very similar in size and shape to Sierra Designs Sweet Suite 3 Tent, only the Meteor Lite 3 is free standing so it provides a quicker more versatile set up when camping conditions don’t allow for a full pegged out tent.
The upgraded materials used are not only lighter but also provide impressive coverage when storms hit. Once the weather clears roll back the fly to unveil the night’s sky with Sierra Designs unique ‘Stargazer’ feature. This is an ideal tent for enjoying the many faces of summer no matter where your adventure takes you.

Mountain Hardwear Phantom -9C Sleeping Bag
Mountain Hardwear updated their ultralight down Phantom series of sleeping bags with a new slimmer performance mummy cut that is more compressible and lighter weight. They use their Ghost Whisper fabric on the outside and nylon taffeta on the inside and now with a more premium look. The 850-fill goose down insulation provide an optimal warmth-to-weight ratio and impressive compressibility. The vertical baffles at the head of the bag limit down migration each time you get in and out of the bag which ultimately helps keep you warmer.
Even though this is an ultra-lightweight sleeping bag it still has features like a two=way anti-snag #5 zipper, contoured foot box, draft collar, glow in the dark, reflective zipper pull, durable water-repellent finish and more. Mountain Hardwear didn’t skimp on features and yet, was still able to produce such a lightweight bag.
If -9°C isn’t adequate for you, the Phantom comes in a -18°C/0°F and -40°C/ -40°F versions as well as less warm 11°C/ 30°F option. Mountain Hardwear has you covered for high-alpine traverses, backcountry hut trips, and multi-week backpacking adventures with their Phantom line of Sleeping Bag.

Sea To Summit Women’s Ether Light XT Insulated Air Sleeping Mat
Sleeping Mats are mandatory for any camping trip, that is, if you want to get any sleep at all. For women, this is one piece of gear that will make a clear difference since it’s a Women’s specific Sleeping Mat. The difference between a women’s version and a unisex sleeping mat is that the women’s has additional Thermolite insulation since women sleep colder and it is also narrower in the shoulders and wider between the hips and knees since women have different body shapes than men. Sea to Summit has shaped the Ether Light XT Insulated Air Mat to match their Women's Sleeping Bags perfectly so the two work together in unison to offer the ideal sleep set up (learn more about Sea To Summit's Women’s Flame Ultralight Sleeping Bag at the start of this article).
The Women’s Ether Light XT Insulated Air Sleeping Mat uses 30D / 40D face fabric which is quiet yet durable and impressively compact and light. Weighing in at just 495g / 17.5oz, this mat has a 3.5 R-Value which is enough to provide three-season warmth for any female backpacker.
While not new for 2020 we felt that the Sea To Summit Women’s Ether Light XT Insulated Air Sleeping Mat was still worth including in this list and once you get your hands on one we’re sure you’ll understand why.
30D / 40D nylon with anti-microbial liquid-extruded TPU lamination
R-Value of 3.5 (ASTM R-Value test standard) makes this an excellent option for 3-season (early Spring to late Fall) use.
The Women’s specific shape means this mat is narrower at the shoulders and wider between the hips and knees offering a greater comfort level for the natural sleeping position for most women.
4-inches thick and using looped Air Sprung Cell technology with durable 30/ 40 D face fabric makes this super stable and comfortable.
Insulated with Thermolite and Exkin Platinum for maximum heat retention, utilizing more Thermolite than the comparable unisex mat.
Multi-function valve for fast inflation and deflation.
Features the Pillow-Lock system to secure the compatible Aeros pillows to the mat.
The Air Stream Pump Sack is integrated into the included stuff sack.

Therm-a-Rest Hyperion -6C Sleeping Bag
An ideal lightweight companion to Therm-a-Rest’s NeoAir UberLite Sleeping Pad (mentioned above) is their Hyperion -6C Sleeping Bag. While not new for 2020, this ultra-light high-performance sleeping bag uses thermally-efficient box baffled construction in key areas to provide a -6°C / 20°F temperature rating. The use of RDS 900-fill Nikwax Hydrophobic Down not only provides all the warmth you need for a three-season sleeping bag but also stays drier and maintains loft 60 times longer than untreated down.
Placing the down where it is most effective (70% on the top and sides with 30% on the back) is called Zonal Insulation and maximizes warmth while saving on weight and reducing the overall cost of the sleeping bag. Combining this with an ergonomic shape and a longer zipper provides a comfortable but not confined fit which Therm-a-Rest’s calls their “Comfort Fit”.
To help keep the Hyperion Sleeping Bag on your sleeping mat, Therm-a-Rest has integrated SynergyLink Connectors which effectively integrate the bag with the mattress below for optimal comfort. If they are not your thing they can be easily removed from the sleeping bag and save a little weight in the process. The Hyperion Sleeping Bag comes with a storage sack and compression stuff sack which helps minimize its size in your pack.
With a temperature rating of -6°C / 20°F, Therm-a-Rest’s Hyperion Sleeping Bag is ideal for three-season backcountry adventures. It’s light enough to go anywhere and warm enough to provide a good nights sleep even when things get chilly.
Ultralight: One of the lightest pieces in its class, the Hyperion sets a new standard for high-performance outdoor equipment.
900-fill Nikwax Hydrophobic Down: Stays drier and maintains loft 60 times longer than untreated down.
Unrivaled Packability: Lightweight materials and precise design allow for a smaller packed size than ever before.
Box Baffled Construction: Uses mesh walls to maximize loft and minimize cold spots in key areas.
Comfort Fit: Ergonomic shape and longer zipper provide a more human-friendly fit than other ultralight bags.
SynergyLink Connectors: Integrate the bag with a mattress for optimal efficiency and comfort; removable for versatility.
Zoned Insulation: Maximizes warmth and saves weight by intentionally placing fill where you need it most, 70% on the top and sides with 30% on the back.
Responsible Down Standard Certified: Certification that ensures that the waterfowl in the down supply chain are treated humanely.

Vaude Marwees 500 Down Sleeping Bag
New for spring 2020 is Vaude’s Marwees 500 Down Sleeping Bag and while it’s a great choice for those looking for a new sleeping bag, what really sets the Marwees 500 apart is its use of 100% recycled Down insulation, outer fabric and lining. In accordance with VAUDE’s Green Shape standards, the down used in the Marwees 500 Down Sleeping Bag consists of 75% recycled duck down and 25% recycled duck feather which adheres to the Global Recycling Standard. A textile recycler removes duck and goose down from old bedding and clothing then it is washed and sterilized at high temperatures in an energy-efficient process. Once clean it is then sorted and broken feathers are removed so that only the best down is used in the final product. This gives a second life to down that would otherwise not be recovered, which is good for the environment and all concerned. Starting in the Summer of 2019 Vaude has offered 100% recycled down in their sleeping bags as well as there clothing collections.
VAUDE Green Shape is used to evaluate products with regard to their environmental friendliness and ensure sustainability throughout the entire life cycle of the products they manufacture. These environmentally-friendly products are made from sustainable and innovative materials and are manufactured under fair working conditions along the entire supply chain.
The Vaude Marwees 500 Down Sleeping Bag uses asymmetrically positioned H-chambers in order to keep the down in place and prevent cold spots from forming while maximizing sleep comfort. Polyester taffeta is used as the lining which is luxuriously smooth and comfortable. The -3°C comfort rating along with the ergonomic zipper, redesigned thermal collar and anatomically shaped hood with draw-cord means the Marwees 500 can be used in spring, summer and autumn.
