Description

Amply named, the Mirage is a regular "trompe l'oeil" – a trick of the eye. Combining full differential cut, pre-cut anatomically formed baffles and ultra light Asahi-Kasei Impact 66 Ripstop Polyamide 37g/m2 fabric gives you a bag that will keep its loft even if Valandre adds no down (yes, sir). But though it works wonders for the pack size, they have added 350 gm (13.3 oz) of 800+ cu in goose down just to keep you comfy.

Made on the principles of the Shocking Blue and the La Fayette, the Mirage will set the standards in its range. This time the benchmark is 680 gm (1 lb 8oz) total, a pack size of only 4.8 liters and an extreme rating at -5°C (23°F).

Field testers have taken the Mirage to -10°C (14°F) wearing a base layer of underwear and a fleece vest. Even if these are not recommended temperature ratings (metabolism etc. should be considered), field tests have certainly underlined the extraordinary performance of the Mirage.

Features
Going ultra light means using Asahi-Kasei Impact 66 Ripstop Polyamide 37g/m2 throughout the bag, using a just 35 cm (13.8 in). left zipper and leaving out the draft collar. While the temperature rating should eliminate the need for a draft collar, the zipper is possitioned between shoulder and neck, where the need for insulation is less. Furthermore, the Mirage is cut wide to allow for layering up if needed.

  • When ultra light is ultra right!
  • Adventure racing
  • Trekking
  • Big wall climbing

Only Bag in the quiver

rated 5 of 5 stars
I am the type of person where I want a item I purchase to cover as many possible uses as possible. The Mirage does this perfectly (IMO). Uber light and very warm to boot, I have taken this bag to 20° and stayed pretty warm.

I recently picked up a Mirage from ProLiteGear.com and am impressed with it thus far. The materials and workmanship are as good as I've seen, and it is very thermally efficient. I would not hesitate to rely on this bag as a primary insulation source for three season use. It's very light and warm for the weight. I will definitely be looking at more Valandre bags in the future.

I have owned the Valandre Mirage for 2 years now and have loved every night I have spent in this bag. Very thermal efficient, cut wide enough to move freely and a uber weight to go with it. The technology that goes into a Valandre bag is by far the best of any sleeping bag company and it shows. Watch any of Valandre's videos on down production, sorting, sewing etc and you will see why Valandre is worth every penny!
