    Superlight and super protective.

    One day you're waking up at Yosemite's camp four, and then next you're on a portaledge hooked to the Cathedrals; either way, you can expect a sound sleep in Mountain Hardwear's Phantom Torch Sleeping Bag. This superlight bag uses Q.Shield hydrophobic down insulation to ensure warmth when moisture rolls in while you're sleeping. Its down insulation has an 800-fill weight for the best loft-to-warmth ratio available.Mountain Hardwear gave the Phantom Torch a snug, weight-saving performance mummy fit. The insulated hood features a gasket to protect your face from wind, and the draft collar has two drawcords to ensure a secure fit. There's a full-length zipper and an included stuff sack for extra camping convenience.

    Light and toasty

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    i used this with an air mattress and a bivy at 10,000 feet at the end of September in the Sierra's. Drinking water froze each night, but I didn't need the full mummy. The bivy got a filled up because of the loft on this great bag. The compression aspect is very good, however, the sack is attached to the mummy draw strings, so it is a little cumbersome packing open end first. I suppose you can just cut the attachment off so it is loose, but its not that big of a deal, just a note. Also, zero faults with the zippers, I could move fairly easily and experienced no comfort issues. I'd buy again.

    Warm, light, and functional

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I chose this over the comparable WM, FF and Marmot zero-bag options. Mostly this was based on review comments that it's better for side sleepers, with a wider and deeper hood, and seemed to have the best combination of features while still coming in below 3lbs in a long. After 3 weeks climbing in Peru and sleeping up to 5200m I've found it to be very warm, pretty snug though with enough room to move about, and surprisingly resistant to condensation, spindrift etc. It packs well and even comes with its own compression sack. Once you get over the weird semi-transparent shell it's a great piece of gear.

    Light and warm!

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

    I run cold and it's not any different while camping! Since this isn't a women's bag, I know the 3 degree would translate to more of a 10 degree limit bag for me, and more like a 25 degree comfort. And that was right! I used this bag in CO on a night were it snowed lightly and was just about 30 degrees. I was on an insulated pad, and was nice and warm. Especially for a sleeping bag just about 2.5lbs - I'm impressed!

    Toasty warm

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

    I got this bag as a gift for Christmas and took it out that week and got to test it in the perfect conditions. Slept in it on a 2.9 r value pad in a 3 season single man tent for 3 nights. One night was about 30 F, one was about 20 F and one night got down to 10 F. All 3 nights were windy.

    I am not an extra cold resistant person and I was warm sleeping with long johns t shirt and no socks. Only the coldest night did I even zip it all the way up.

    Works great.

    Unanswered Question

    Hey! I'm 6 foot and 1/2 inches tall... call it 6'1" to be safe... think I would be comfortable in a regular length bag or would it be safest to suck it up and take on the extra 5" of dead air space by getting the long bag?

    Unanswered Question

    Is the baffle design on the Torch sleeping bag continuous to enable movement of down to the bottom of the bag in warmer weather?

    the regular length says 6'6" or 78" which is very odd for regular length. Is that correct?

    Hey mrsmileyns - You are correct that the regular length is 6'6" while the long is 7'. This Phantom Torch is definitely for taller individuals and it is one of the few sleeping bags out there that comes in a 7'. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.
