Best Budget Sleeping Bag – The MEC Hybrid

By Editor | October 26, 2008

Mountain Equipment Co-op MEC Hybrid sleeping bagWhy is the MEC Hybrid sleeping bag the one of the best budget sleeping bag, because it combines synthetic fill and down in the same bag. The inside layer contains 575-fill down, which is then wrapped in a layer of quilted synthetic. The idea is to take advantage of the best properties of both: the superior heat retention of down and the waterrepellency of synthetic fill. The outer layer serves two purposes when it comes to moisture: it repels outside condensation and rain without losing its warmth, and it keeps the down dry by pulling perspiration outward.

Did we mention the great price?

Keep in mind that the MEC Hybrid sleeping bag is the cheapest bag of the bunch, but also the heaviest, and it is best suited to Backpackers, bike tourers or boat trippers seeking three-season comfort in a bag that won’t break the bank.
