Mountain Hardwear has revamped its line of sleeping bags this year to give women shoppers some budget options. The Laminina Z Flame 21 is one of those options. This synthetic bag comes in a bright teal and yellow material that is soft and comfortable. It kept us warm on High Sierra summer nights but is not the most compressible or lightweight for backpacking. This bag could be a good choice for someone going on short backpacking trips, particularly in wet climates where having a synthetic bag is an advantage. Unfortunately, it is definitely a step down in quality, weight, and compressibility from the UltraLaminina that we have tested in previous years.
The Laminina Z Flame keeps all the same technical specs as before but is now available in the new blue and red color, shown in the image above!
