Looking to trim some weight off your gear for your next backpacking trip?  Look no further.  The Sierra Designs Vapor 15 is the perfect sleeping bag for spring, summer, and early fall in the Rockies.  At 1lb. 15oz. the 850-down fill bag is super cozy, and packs down to nearly nothing.  Sierra Designs has been making sleeping bags, tents, clothing, and packs for over 45 years and their experience is perfected in the Vapor 15 bag. 

Pros: Crazy light weight; Super comfortable; Extremely packable.

Cons:  1/2 length zipper to save weight makes regulating temperature on hot nights a bit difficult; fairly expensive at $420 but if you’re getting 1 nice and expensive piece of gear, this is worth considering;  It’s down so keep it dry or else.
