Want to fly business class on a coach fare? Gift the Cosmic. It’s stuffed with 550-fill down rather than the pricier stuff, but it has enough loft to keep sleepers warm right down to the bottom of its 20°F temp rating. “It packs down to the size of two footballs, but still fits easily in my weekend pack,” says one tester.

When a late fall night dropped to 19°F in North Carolina’s Appalachians, he just cinched up the hood and draft collar and promptly went back to sleep. And the cut is generous: “I had more than enough room to tumble and spin without tangling up,” he (at 5’11” and 175 pounds) says.
