We're working out what we think - we'll add our view here!
The Criterion Ultralight 200 is a lightweight down sleeping bag and the second lightest bag in our range, topped only by the Quantum 200, designed for minimalists, ultralight hikers and adventure racers. With a comfort temperature rating of 3°C, this is a bag for the summer. Its weight is a mere 620gms, so it will add hardly any weight to your rucksack.
It is made using a Pertex Quantum (52gms/m²) ripstop shell (formerly Pertex Microlight) filled with 220g of 700 FP Polish Goose down. Boxwall construction helps keep the weight down to a minimum.
A DWR treatment of the shell helps protect the down from any dampness that may occur in your tent, from condensation or wet gear. When in its stuff sack, the pack size of 11 x 11 x 25 cm which is absolutely tiny. Since it takes up hardly any room you will be able to use a smaller rucksack.
The activities most suitable for using a Criterion Ultralight 200 sleeping bag are ultralight hiking, endurance racing/adventure racing/mountain marathons and travelling / indoor. The comfort temperature is +3°C, so you will not overheat during the summer or whilst sleeping indoors. The weight of 620 grams means that you can keep your pack light, which is vital when taking part in competitions.
