Sleeping bag for Alpine climbing 24-Jul-2014 At 9:56:49 PM stuart h
I use a Macpac Pinnacle. They don't make it any more, but it is 150gm of fill in one of those bags with fill only on top and a sleeve for the sleeping mat underneath. For NZ hut based climbing it is very effective and light to carry on walk outs. For high bivvies it is a bit chilly but would be fine if you wore a decent jacket & some tights and it still doesn't weigh very much.

I had it totally re-filled last year because they don't make them anymore. If I had to buy again I would look at one of the liner bag systems designed to bulk up three season bags. The MontBell equipment I have seen has seemed a very good value for money and space/weight conscious option. I think Glenn Pennycook is still distributing their gear.
