AEGISMAX UL Down Sleeping Bag Review (TESTED)

As backpackers know, any weight that can be shed can make a huge difference on the trail as the miles go by. The quest for chasing ultralight status is never ending, and the kicker is this: Ultralight gear is expensive… Unless, that is, you’re talking about the AEGISMAX ultralight down sleeping bag. Viewers have asked and we’re responding. We wanted to see if this sub $80 ultralight sleeping bag measures up to the hype, so we bought one, tested it, and compiled it all into this review.

Have you tried the AEGISMAX? How do you like it? What other gear would you like to see us review? We’d love to hear from you in the comments.

It just so happens I’m in the market for a lighter sleeping bag for my trip to Pictured Rock. I like the price and specs for this one. Did I tell you both I got the Black Diamond iota? It’s a great product. I’m very satisfied with its performance. Many thanks for recommending it! I’ll let you know about the Aegismax when I get back from Michigan.

Another great video

Dudedet says:

I asked you to stand on it so I can see how lofty it is. Can you please add a clip in where you do so?

Richard Bucker says:

everyone seems to like to do sleeping bag video but nobody shows what they do in the heat of the summer. Just last night the temp was 73F at about 2am. I don’t need a blanket at that temp. I don’t even need a sheet.

ogninjaspy says:

I might have to think about that. Compact size for that price – almost too good to pass up.

MyBushyBeard says:

I personally use the black version of this sleeping bag and I love it!
