One of the Year’s Best New Sleeping Bags Is Nearly $100 Off

It isn’t uncommon that a brand will adapt a well-received product into a full collection. This year, Patagonia did that with it’s award-winning Micro Puff Jacket, by giving it a waterproof shell and The North Face expanded its Ventrix insulation into a full collection that includes jackets, pullovers and a pair of shorts. It makes sense to transfigure a jacket into other pieces of clothing, but Mountain Hardwear went a step further this year by turning its popular Ghost Whisperer jacket into a sleeping bag.

Mountain Hardwear debuted the Ghost Whisperer in 2012. The ultralight down jacket that weighs 7.8 ounces was the product of a collaboration with Swiss mountaineer Ueli Steck, who was an advocate for the fast-and-light approach to mountaineering. Despite its lightness, the jacket is windproof and water-resistant. These same characteristics went into the Ghost Whisperer Sleeping Bag, which Mountain Hardwear released this year in 20- and 40-degree versions. The bags are stuffed with water-resistant Q.Shield 900-fill down and feature super-light Whisperer exterior fabric, cinching mummy-style hoods and specially-designed no-snag zippers.

Both are currently available at Mountain Steals at a discount — $90 off the 40-degree bag and $115 off the 20-degree bag.
