High Peak Alpinismo Cirque sleeping bag review: ideal for spring & fall camping
The High Peak Alpinismo Cirque 20º F sleeping bag is new this spring from High Peak USA. This sleeping bag is very lightweight at 2.8 lbs. It is ideal for spring and fall camping as it has Invista Thermolite Extreme insulation, and the shell is made of mini-ripstop, water repellent, windproof Cire nylon.
High Peak was born in Germany back in 1983 and has since created a team of personnel specializing in the outdoor field that designs and supervises all products manufactured in the Far East. It is one of the leading outdoor manufacturing companies in Europe that is a huge asset to the world of camping.
High Peak’s new Alpinismo collection consists of lightweight backpacks, sleeping bags, tents and sleeping pads. High Peak is known for providing high quality products for the outdoors, but this is the first time they have presented a product that is for the outdoor enthusiast who needs lightweight gear. This is great for backpackers, hikers, and mountaineers when it comes to performance benefits.
The Alpinismo Cirque sleeping bag performed beautifully while camping in the great outdoors of Utah. Although the winter has been lingering in certain areas of Utah, Moab is a good place to get away for a spring camping trip, and the Cirque was the perfect sleeping bag to use.
The weather was a little cloudy with some rain and wind, and once nightfall hit, the temperature dropped quite a few degrees while the wind picked up. Usually I put an extra blanket inside my sleeping bag as well as one for the top of the sleeping bag to stay warm at night. This wasn’t the case with the Alpinismo Cirque.
The Cirque was extremely cozy and so inviting after a full day of hiking, biking, and climbing. It was just right for the temperature inside the tent. What made it more likeable was the fact that I could just bury my whole body, including my face, into the sleeping bag and not really hear the heavy winds that were threatening to blow my tent down at night. It wasn’t until the tent was literally on my face and bearing down on me that I realized the wind was pretty horrendous. I was really that comfortable and oblivious to the outside storm.
The Cirque comes in a small and extremely portable bag, and it’s not difficult to stuff it back in to store. Other features of the Cirque include a hood with drawstring closure and barrel lock, sew-in draft tube and collar, #5 Two-Way YKK zipper, windshield, Thermal Collar, and anti-snag zipperband. You can also zip two bags together.
The Alpinismo Cirque is a highly recommended sleeping bag for your backpacking or mountaineering adventures. It won’t weigh you down, and it’ll keep you warm and cozy during the night in the cool spring or fall air. High Peak gear can be purchased at Recreation Outlet in Salt Lake City, and Timber Wolf Sports in Kanab.
