Hyperion 32 Degree Down Sleeping Bag
New for 2019, the Hyperion 32 Degree Down Sleeping Bag is an ultralight backpacking option for those headed out into late spring or early fall conditions in uncertain weather. It features powerful 900-fill down insulation to keep you warm when the nights dip towards freezing, treated with Nikwax in order to retain heat-trapping loft if you encounter moisture on your trip. Cinch the draft collar down on colder nights for snuggle-worthy comfort, and rest easy knowing that a draft tube keeps cold air from sneaking through the zipper. The ergonomic mummy shape is built with mesh walls to maximize loft, and zoned insulation for maximum warmth with minimum weight. In addition to weighing in at merely a pound, the Hyperion packs down to little more than the size of your favorite 1 liter water bottle.

Not a 42° Comfort Rating bag
- I've put it through the wringer
- True to size
- 6` 1"
- 230 lbs
This is the second time. The Hyperion 32 is an excellent bag. It’s weight can’t be beat. The construction is superior but there is a design flaw. I gave the bag two stars because of the zipper and draft tube placement. I’m guessing the zipper is short because of this. I’m also upset that it costs what it does and doesn’t deliver. It is clear that the bag is made for those who sleep on their backs. As for reality that doesn’t happen. I tend to move and the only way I could be fully comfortable, and not get a cold spot along the zipper, was to stuff my down jacket along the zipper. I didn’t have any issues with the right side of the bag so it wasn’t the strategically placed down. The draft tube is on the top. Cold goes down. So it’s placement, on the top of the zipper, I feel, is a design flaw. But I’m still thinking that wouldn’t make a difference and a different zipper would. I know for sure it was the zipper because it felt cold and the bag did not. The coldest it got was 35° and that was only one night as the other nights, 5, were 40-45° I do not consider this a 32° bag when I get a draft at 42°, 42° Comfort, and I run hot so I love cold weather. I would rather use my Cat’s Meow from 1996. That is a 30° bag with primaloft and is good at 30°. It’s the only bag I’ve had that’s rated for 30° that isn’t freezing at it’s temp rating. Yes, I know bags are rated differently now. Shouldn’t have to wear fleece or use an insert at this temp rating. The only reason I wanted this bag is because I can drop a pound.

Best Packable Sleeping Bags!
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- True to size

I purchased this as my 3-season sleeping bag and have no regrets! It packs down to about the size of a Nalgene and is perfect for backpacking, or just minimizing your load size. I'm 5' 5 3/4" and the small fits me just perfectly. The water resistance is great for keeping you warm despite frost and even withstood a brief and light rain (but I do recommend a bivy for rain).
