    Lightweight protection from cold, wet weather.

    The lightweight Kelty SB 20 Sleeping Bag stands up to bad weather and cold conditions from fall to spring so you can sleep through the night comfortably regardless of the conditions. Kelty stuffed this bag with 800-fill insulation for an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio that'll keep you surprisingly warm in temps as low as 20-degrees Fahrenheit despite its light weight. The insulation's DriDown treatment repels moisture so the down maintains warmth in rainy weather, and it also helps the bag dry faster in case the down gets wet. Head-2-Toe Dri waterproofing treatment on the shell finishes the head and foot to help keep you dry in case water seeps through your tent at night.

    Kelty built the SB 20's shell out of nylon ripstop for lightweight durability, and a softer taffeta lining keeps you cozy all night long. FatMan and Ribbon drawcords let you cinch the thermal-comfort hood across your head, and the top draft collar prevents any cold drafts from creeping into the bag. The dual-sliding zipper locks in place and won't snag on the fabric thanks to the draft tube. The toebox has a natural fit so your feet don't feel scrunched. Kelty included a stuff sack as well as a mesh storage sack to prolong the bag's life when you aren't using it.

    Great ultra-light bag for most seasons!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have used a number of Kelty bags, But none of them are like this. The folks who put together the SB20 knew what they were doing. The materials used on the toe cap and around the hood have kept me dry more than once on damp mornings in the hills. Also this bag has quite a bit of room inside for a ultralight.
    I used this thing for 6 days in Canyonlands Utah on the Colorado river last year, and even though it got pretty wet a few times, it was dry and ready to go by bedtime at night!
    The coldest temp I have used the bag in was about 17*, and I will say that was about the cutoff of my comfort level for this bag. All and All I have used this bag a ton, and it has always performed as well as I needed it to.

    Pros: Very lightweight, packs down really small for backpacking, true to Temp rating, stays dryer than most in humid or slightly damp conditions.

    Cons: Zipper does still catch, it just does. The stitching between the collar and hood could be beefed up, as I found it may tear easier than expected. but that's about all

    P.S. It's worth noting how important it is to store this and all down bags uncompressed, storing in the compression sack long term will ultimately kill the down and weaken the nylon material.
    Stay warm out there!!

    Everyone needs a good sleeping bag.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I bought the Kelty SB 20 Sleeping Bag on sale for ~$275. I haven't bought a sleeping bag in years, and technologically, it's light-years ahead of the bags I grew up using.

    It came in a storage sack that allows the down to keep its loft while it's being stored, and it also included its own stuff sack for when you hit the trail. One of the features I appreciated most was the waterproofing at the head and feet.

    It even zips together with my wife's Sierra Designs Zissou bag.

    This bag is so warm and comfortable. Can't wait to take it out again.

    Yes. Yes. Yes.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Took it up Mount Adams in the middle of a spring blizzard. We had to fight the snow off the sides of the tent, a loosing battle as the walls crushed in around us. Our tiny bivy site, our three season tent, us, were getting buried.

    I was breaking a sweat in this bag without any socks on.

    11/10 Would try to die on Mt. Adams again.

    p.s. purchased for $240 on sale, wouldn't pay full retail otherwise this bags against some stiff competition.

    worth the price tag

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Im always skeptical about gear and price points.....dropping $400 on a 20F sleeping bag is for sure not my regular gig. After experiencing many 3 and 4 season sleeping bags this was a keeper. Prior the SB I try Sierra Designs Zizzou and i was cold at 30 degrees. Beyond the technology the features of the SB are well thought with a hood and footbox that repels moisture..
    Is lightweight @ 2lb and extremely warm....I used the bag at 22 degress while doing the Inca Trail at 9000 feet of elevation and i was warm using a synthetic vest and hindi base layer pants.

    Good sleeping bag at first impression

      I just received this bag in the mail. Upon first impression I noticed that it was kind of thin. Once actually got into the bag I realized that it was quite warm. The shoulder girth might be an inch or 2 too small but I can deal with it because I am a side sleeper (there is more room when I am on my side in the bag). I also have pretty broad shoulders so this is a minor gripe. The compression sack is great and it condenses down to nothing which will be great for backpacking. The only reason I am giving it 4 stars is the shoulder girth and the fact that it is kind of thin. Overall I would recommend this bag as Kelty makes some great products. I cant wait to use it on an overnight on the AT next week along with my Trail Logic 2 tent.

      Great Product

        I have used it a total of 6 nights on two trips to 10,000 feet in Colorado this September. The temps have been in the low to mid thirties at night. I sleep on a BA Insulated Q Core pad and in a set of light thermals. The bag is so warm for me that I have yet to actually zip it fully closed. It's light, fluffy and incredibly comfortable. It is now my favorite bag.

        Awesome Bag

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I have owned several sleeping bags.

        Hates some. Tolerated others.

        This one I love.

        Its dridown is awesome, its temperature ratings is true, and its comfort is great.



        The hood and the foot box coating are awesome!!! When condensation gets in the tent it keeps off the moisture.

        I got this because I bought the PK50 and had to have the whole trail logic collection and It has totally lived up to the hype.

        First Impressions

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        Okay, so I haven't been able to get this thing out on the trail yet but I thought I'd give you all a little feedback on the Kelty SB20. Full disclosure, I was VERY skeptical about this bag as I've had not-so-good experience with Kelty in the past. However, it seems that they has turned things around with their Trailogic Series. So here's the good and the bad.



        Good: This is a 20 degree, 800-fill Dridown (duck down)bag for $300.00. You can't really beat that.



        Good: The waterproof materials at the head and foot of the bag will prove themselves time and time again on soggy mornings in cramped tents. The material itself isn't any thicker than the rest of the bag's shell, it's just a different texture.



        Good: As you would expect, the insulation lofts like no other.



        Bad: Since the bag's baffle are sewn in, there are some definite thin spots (you can see light along the sewn areas of the bag from the inside).



        Good: The included compression bag is made out of the same lightweight material as the shell of the bag with high-quality buckles and nylon webbing lines.



        Bad: This material, while light, may not be the best for a compression sack as it will go through quite a bit of stress each time you crank it down.



        Bad: The draft collar is not shaped in any way. It's not a huge deal, but having the collar contoured around your neck helps keep drafts out without bunching or choking.



        Conclusion: When all is said and done, this bag seems to be a pretty solid buy even though some aspects could be improved upon. I'll update this review after I get some trail time with the bag. Until then, it seems like Kelty is on the right track to improving their reputation and I, surprisingly, am tempted to pick up some more components of the Trailogic series.
