The Vango Ultralite Pro 100 is a small lightweight 2-season sleeping bag that’s ideal for backpacking.
For our recent backpacking trip, Vango sent us over a couple of their lightweight Ultralite Pro 100 sleeping bags for us to try out. Here’s what we thought of them…
Vango Ultralite Pro 100 Sleeping Bags Review
We’ve reviewed many sleeping bags over the years, which are mostly for car camping with a family, and so their weight and size isn’t a major concern, other than trying to fit everything in the car.
However, if you want to take your kids on a different sort of adventures, such as bike packing, backpacking, or canoe camping, then you’ll want something much smaller and lighter.
This is where the Vango Ultralite Pro 100 comes in. It’s the smallest sleeping bag when packed that we’ve tried.
These bags easily fit into our backpacks for the hike to the campsite. Our daughter has also used one of these bags on her Duke of Edinburgh expedition.
The bags are officially rated as 2-Season sleeping bags, so they aren’t suitable on their own for cooler months. We’ve used these on a few trips already (not all backpacking!), and haven’t been cold in them.
The Ultralite Pro 100 sleeping bags come with a mummy-shaped hood to help keep heat in at night, as well as extra insulation that can be pulled in around your shoulders. This means that the bag tries to keep as much of your body heat as it can.
Being a smaller bag, the legroom is quite tight, which is what you would expect for this type of sleeping bag.
We found the Vango Ultralite 100 to be great summer sleeping bags. Even when not backpacking, it’s been great to have a sleeping bag not take up too much space in the car.
They get the Thumbs Up Award.
- Small and lightweight summer bag
- Not bad price for this sort of sleeping bag
- Legroom is tight, which is to be expected on a smaller bag
