The Kelty Light Year is great series of sleeping bags because of the choices. You can pick the bag up in both down and synthetic and also in a temperature range from 0 to 40 degrees. The side zipper goes down to the hips to make entry and exit a breeze, especially for a mummy-styled sleeping bag. An innovative toe box zipper even lets you air your tired dogs after a long day of backpacking on or off the trail. A polyester ripstop outer shell blocks wind and rain, while the polyester taffeta lining offers comfort and warmth under the stars. Coupled with a 650-down fill or Climashield synthetic material, the Light Year is great for any temperature and weather conditions.
Campers love the Light Year for fun jaunts into the wilderness and extended summer and autumn trips, especially since it’s suitable for warm nights and cold, early mornings. Many backpackers say the toe box zipper is enough, but the relatively low price is what truly gives this great sleeping bag the value it is renowned for in the camping world. Backed by the Kelty lifetime warranty, this sleeping bag is durable enough for many seasons of backpacking and camping from the Grand Canyon to Alaska and beyond.
