PipeDream 200 lightweight sleeping bag
2 season ultra-lightweight goosedown sleeping bag, highly packable and weighing just 525 g it appeals to minimalists
The PipeDream 200 has been pared down to the bare minimum to give a lightweight fine tuned sleeping bag with the adventurous traveller in mind.
Optimised with 750 fill power down to get the most warmth, yet only 525 g, with no unnecessary features. This specialist bag uses 200 g of 90/10 goosedown and is suited to 2 season use or as a liner bag for winter trips.
The bag has a DWR coating so the odd drip of condensation or early morning dew won't ruin your bag’s insulation and the dark colour scheme absorbs heat from the sun - so if your down is unlucky enough to get wet, it will dry quicker.
- 3 Year Alpine Bond
- C6 DWR coating
- Stitch-thru construction
- All of our down is ethically sourced, not live-plucked and not force-fed

How will you fit? Our guide is based on the user wearing thin base layers.
Spacious: 5ft3 tall or you have a shoulder circumference of around 100 cm. The bag will be perfectly useable but you will have space within the bag. For this reason it will not be as thermally efficient as an optimum fit but it will be comfortable and you will easily be able to wear extra layers.
Optimum: 5ft11 tall or you have a shoulder circumference of around 124 cm. At this size you are the ideal candidate for this bag. You should be able to easily arrange yourself in the bag, and still have the space to wear an additional down jacket if necessary.
Tight: 6ft1 tall or you have a shoulder circumference of around 128 cm. At this size you will start to compress the down and reduce the thermal efficiency of the bag, especially in the foot section and have limited movement around your shoulders when the zip is full closed. You should still be able to take your socks off, but might struggle to take off a top layer without undoing the zip.

Ideal bag for summer / autumn bivvies
I bought this bag as an alternative to my mid-wight down bag (used in early spring and late autumn) and my midsummer bag (a Snugpak Softie). I wanted light and above all I wanted packable. Down was really the only way to go.
I used this bag for a week of camping wild on Dartmoor in late September. I used it inside a Hunka XL bivvy bag and under a Rig 21 Tarp. My mat is a Thermarest NeoAir Xlite which also goes inside the Hunka. Under the Hunka I have a Tyvek sheet with a layer of 3mm thick closed-cell foam glued to it.
Despite heavy rain on two nights and heavy dew on several mornings, I was able to keep the bag completely dry.
I was never even slightly chilly in temperatures down to about 3 degrees C and on the first night had to spend a few minutes removing my 0Hiro jacket which I had put on in case of chills.
I was toasty all night, every night.
I'd highly recommend this bag if you like to travel fast and light or, like me, slow and light. It packs away to the size of a melon, and I simply deflate the Thermarest and fold and roll the entire sleep-system up as a unit. It takes up about 15 litres or the bottom third of my rucksack.
I wish I had discovered AlpKit many years ago...
Light and packs small
Used this bag on a week of cycle camping in June in France. Was toasty warm every night and found the part zip very useful in regulating temperature. It packs really small into a dry bag and the weight is negligible.
