At just 2 pounds, the Kelty Light Year 25 sleeping bag is the perfect bag for lightweight trips from May to October.

Review by: rcaret, 2003-09-26

I bought this bag after having another Kelty bag that weighed over 4 lbs. I couldn’t believe how light it felt. The down really does lighten the bag. I weigh all my gear when buying it and this sleeping bag weighed, without the stuff sack, at 2 lbs 2 ounces on a digital scale. The first night I slept by a mountain lake at around 10,000 feet that still had ice on it. My tent door was fully open letting the wind blow thru it. I woke up in the middle of the night because I was cold so I shut the door down and slept the rest of the night just fine. The rest of the trip I slept with the door partially open and the sleeping bag was warm enough. Temperature ratings on bags are pretty much just something to go by. Do I think I could handle 20 degrees in this bag? Well, yes I do but I would probably want to have the door of my tent closed. Do I think my wife could handle 20 degrees in this bag? No I don’t, she is too warm blooded and I would have to have a military extreme cold bag for her. I really like the price on this bag compared to other ultralite bags and it almost feels like a down comforter when sleeping in it. The zipper goes a little more than half way down the bag and the bag doesn’t crowd my frame. (I am 5'9" and weigh 175 lbs). I can bring the zipper all the way up for the mummy effect which keeps you warm. But I would rather control the temp of the tent by closing and opening the door. With this sleeping bag you are giving up a lot of fill, so I would definitely have a mattress or foam pad. Like any bag make sure it is long enough and wide enough for you.
