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.

- Q & A
- 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.
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.
