In the world of sleeping bags there are many different options for various activities and different times of the year. From the age old debate of down versus synthetic (or a hybrid) to the various temperature ratings of +5, 0, -10, -15, -20 or even -30 degrees. Over the years I have found that no matter which combination of these I choose my favorite sleeping bags always adheres to the basic requirements of lightweight and compact.
When introduced to the Mountain Hardware Phantom 32 degree sleeping bag I was happy to learn that it easily meets both of these criteria. Since it’s made of down and has a snug mommy cut, the Phantom 32 is nice and light and with its zero degree rating it also compacts super small. The Phantom 32 is classified as a two season bag but we found that with a good tent and an insulating base layer clothing you can easily use this sleeping bag three out of the four seasons. For those number junkies out there, the Phantom 32 is rated at 0˚C / 32˚ F in accordance with the EN 13537 European standard the T Comfort rating is 2˚ C / 37˚ F, the T Limit is -2˚ C / 28˚ F and the T Extreme of -17˚ C / 0˚F, however this is an extreme survival rating and should not be relied on for general use.
