Hyke & Byke Eolus 800FP 30 deg
5 out of 5 stars
This is a very good sleeping bag. It is lightweight, packs down small, and is comfortable. I used this for my summer hikes at the end of 2019, and all through 2020.
In September of this year (2020), during an unexpectedly warm evening, I left this bag unzipped and basically used it as a quilt. That worked really well. I have confidence this sleeping bag will continue to perform for me throughout 2021.
During the night I tend to rollover often, especially when out camping. A complaint about mummy bags is it can sometimes be tough to shift around. I'm a slender dude. Perhaps that's why I am able to rollover in this mummy bag fairly easily.
This sleeping bag is as lightweight as advertised. A total of 2.05 pounds when packed away. Though when I last weighed it, inside the stuff sack, it came in just under 2 lbs.
The anti-snag zippers work great without getting tangled up in the fabric for the most part. They are very large.
This sleeping bag has two drawstrings. You can tighten it around your shoulders, the other is to enclose your head if the temps get a bit too low.
The price is amazing. You can get this one for $170 direct from Hyke & Byke. That might sound pricey, but equivalent sleeping bags from other companies can easily run north of $200 for similar quality, from my brief research.
This sleeping bag lofts quickly after removing it from the stuff sack. I don’t have a lot of experience with sleeping bags. Perhaps it is because of the 800 FP Goose down.

Note. I am budget conscious in all backpacking gear purchases. My reviews are based upon multiple uses, spanning months or years.
