The TROPEN is a light-weight sleeping bag with an extremely small packing size and minimum weight. Its remarkable feature is its vapour permeability which is very important for hot and humid tropical nights. The Shelltrans shell fits loosely over the inner structure and provides an extra layer of insulation with no cold seams.

This construction ensures reserve warmth for cool, foggy nights. In warmer weather the bottom part of the two-way zipper can be opened for ventilation. The hood is equipped with a mosquito net which can be folded out of the flap if required (it is in the front part of the bag and stored behind the flap with press studs.) The net can easily be attached around the hood by means of the small zipper. The zipper is non-snagging so that you can always get out quickly and easily.

"I did the conversions, and it looks like this a 10 to 40 degree rated bag (Fahrenheit). Weight, according to the manufacturer, translates to 2.42 pounds. I can tell you, holding it my hands, it's about 2 pounds or less, including the stuff sack. It's a synthetic fill, which some may not like, but you should consider the application. It's a military bag. The outer shell of the bag appears to be rip-stop type nylon, very similar to the USGI poncho shells. I haven't done a water test, but it looks to be quite resistant, if not weather proof. However, I would suggest bringing a bivy sack if you knew you were going into a particularly wet environment. The built in bug net is a superb addition, and stows nicely if not needed. It zips up, so you're guaranteed a nice seal. Temperature wise, I climbed in it and immediately felt it getting warm. Within 10 minutes, I was up to temperature and very warm. It felt decently sealed around my feet, temperature wise. What impresses me most is the size the bag compresses to, with the included stuff sack. I measure about 11\" x 6.5\" x 6.5\", and I could probably squeeze it down a little more. It's very nice for a bag with what I would argue is a perfect temperature range. With some poly-pros and a wind-break shelter, this could be the perfect bag. It's small, lightweight, weather resistant, and efficient. Any further drop in temperature, and you should use a bag liner, or bring a secondary, lightweight bag. I bought this as a one size fits all, base-layer bag, and I think it will fit the bill nicely. My hesitation before ordering was that it was an obscure brand, didn't have a lot of information about it, and had no reviews. I'm hesitant to give it five stars without testing it in the field first. But, based on my experience with sleep systems, and from what I can tell already, I'm sure this a keeper. Great construction all around. I highly recommend this bag, and CTD is the only vendor in the U.S. carrying it, as far as I've found.."
