The Cumulus Mysterious Traveller 500 is an adaptable mid-weight down sleeping bag ideal for Spring and Summer use, as well as in mild winter conditions.
Providing reliable protection throughout the more clement months, whether that be regular camping, backpacking or use in the mountains, Cumulus have kept the Mysterious Traveler 500 light with the use of Pertex Quantum fabric (weighing 35 g/m²) throughout, along with a 700 cuin loft, goose down fill. The Trapezoidal chambers provide highly efficient insulation in bags of this weight. Weighing in at less than 900g, the Mysterious Traveller 500 is incredible value for money.

Advice on Temperature Ratings
Temperature ratings are used to indicate a bags performance and help you decide between models. However, they are subjective and can be greatly affected by factors such as what you're happy to wear (clothing wise) in conjunction with the bag, your health and metabolism, how much you have had to eat or drink, humidity and altitude, the type of shelter used and whether you are using a suitable insulating mat.
As a guide, the "Comfort" rating indicates the range at which a woman gets a comfortable night’s sleep, the "Limit of Comfort" rating indicates the range at which a man gets a comfortable night’s sleep and the "Extreme" rating indicates a range at which a woman is protected from hypothermia. The Extreme rating is basically a survival rating and it is not advisable to rely on this for general use.

This model’s closest comparison would be a Rab Ascent 500, although of course this Cumulus bag utilises goose, rather than duck down.
