Kelty Sleeping Bag Review Details: Kelty Dry Down Backpackers Sleeping Bag
Product User Rating: 5/5
Availability: In Stock
Description:  I have owned over 10 sleeping bags in my life and this Kelty SB 20 Dry Down sleeping bag is the best I have ever owned.  From a backpackers perspective it is incredible as it is both lightweight and warm!  The lightweight Kelty SB 20 sleeping bag stands up to bad weather and cold conditions so that you can sleep through the night comfortably regardless of the conditions. Kelty has stuffed this sleeping bag with 800 fill insulation for an incredible warmth to weight ratio. The insulation’s DriDown treatment repels moisture so the down maintains warmth in rainy weather, and it also helps the bag dry faster in case the down gets wet. Head to toe waterproofing treatment on the shell finishes the head and foot to help keep you dry in case water seeps through your tent at night. Kelty built the SB 20’s shell out of nylon ripstop for lightweight durability, and a softer taffeta lining keeps you cozy all night long. The dual-sliding zipper locks in place and won’t snag on the fabric thanks to the draft tube. The toebox has a natural fit so your feet don’t feel scrunched. Additionally, Kelty includes a compression bag as well as a mesh storage sack to prolong the bag’s life when you aren’t using it.  I used this bag on my last winter trip to the Grand Canyon.  I had to deal with both rain and snow on that trip and the bag kept me dry and warm the entire time. So if you are looking for a great ultralight sleeping bag for an upcoming backpacking trip in approximately 10F – 40F weather, this is a great choice. Best of all, it is on sale right now!

Asolo GTX Backpacking Boots

Asolo Boot Review Details: Asolo GTX Backpacking Boots
Product User Rating: 5/5
Availability: In Stock
Description:  Asolo is my boot manufacture of choice, if fact the last 3 pairs of boots that I have purchased have all been Asolo I like them so much.  Out of those boots the Asolo GTX are my favorite pair.  Not only are they the most comfortable boot that I have ever owned but they make for a great backpacking boot with their rigid sole and lightweight design. Here are some of the features of the Asolo GTX boot.

  • Fabric and leather uppers with seam-sealed Gore-Tex linings provide waterproof protection from the elements and light weight construction.
  • Padded ankle cuffs add protective comfort at the ankles while hardened rubber toe bumpers protect against impact and abrasion
  • Duo thermoplastic supports provide torsional stability and control while protecting against impact and bruises on rocks and uneven terrain
  • Molded polyurethane midsoles for comfort and support

As you probably know, boots are one of your most important pieces of backpacking gear.  If you get a bad pair of boots you can suffer from blisters or worse, ruining your trip or adventure. So if you are looking for a great boot, I can not recommend these Asolo GTX’s enough.
