A redesigned shape in an alpine favorite.
The Mountain Equipment Helium 800 -15C Sleeping Bag is redesigned with a new Alpine Fit, featuring a progressive tapering to save warmth and space. Warm, lightweight down insulation surrounds you in a pleasant cocoon, while the 5-baffled hood and draft collar ensure that you stay as warm as possible. The 3/4 length side zipper is long enough for convenience, but not so much that you're losing warmth unnecessarily.

Trapezium 4 foot box...
4 baffle trapezoid foot piece for excellent down control and loft with low weight
Alpine Fit with tapered lower leg for improved thermal efficiency and weight reduction.
Lightweight and ultra-compressible Helium fabrics are the perfect choice for any product where weight and bulk are a prime concern. Their densely woven structure and use of fine denier yarns ensures these fabrics are down-proof, tear-resistant and highly breathable
Slanted Box Wall Baffles
One of the simplest baffle constructions but thanks to its slanted walls offers improved stability and thermal efficiency over the classic box method.
Is it possible to zip two of these sleeping bags together and form one big sleeping bag for 2 persons?
It is not possible to zip these two bags together into one bag, unfortunately.
Can someone please post a picture of this bag compressed next to a Nalgene for comparison?
HI, Any first hand thougths on Mountain Equipments bags vs. the Western Mountaineering Versalite? Torn between the two and this seems like a good value albiet slightly heavier. Looking for a bag for fall camping in VT/NH and some ski hut trips. Narrowed it down to this one, the Lightline SL, or the Versalite. Help me out here.... Thanks!
People rave about Western Mountaineering, they almost have a cultish following, and I dont mean that in a good way. The Versalite, IMO, does not have the adequate amount of down to be considered a 10 degree bag. Now, I know its supposedly cut slimmer and thats supposed to compensate, but Ive cross referenced its cut with other bags and its not that different. My 15 degree bag has one ounce less down then the Versalite and its not significantly cut any bigger.
If you truly want a 5 degree bag, I would go with this one. If you could live with a GOOD 15 degree bag that can stretch into the 10's and want the added weight benefits, I would go with the Versalite. That Lightline SL does look nice, but way too expensive IMO.
