The new sleeping bag. Synthetic insulation.

This thing looks really big, and heavy.... is it?

It’s about half the weight, packs smaller too. Reality is sleeping bags and synthetic fill have gotten much better since the 1980s. It’s also a mummy bag which is a nice step. Being able to machine wash it is also nice.

Good news!

The only problem I've ever had with synthetic bags is the size and weight.
