Good bag for packing and sleeping!
I am a wildland firefighter and am on duty for 18 days at a time. I got this bag because we are limited on the weight of our gear and the size of our luggage and my old sleeping bag was very comfortable but also huge and heavy taking nearly 1/3 of my luggage space. I just tested my new bag for 14 straight nights in the boundary waters of Minnesota on a fire detail. I am 6'3" and 240 pounds and the bag was roomy and nice enough to keep me comfortable the whole time. The zipper is a little difficult towards the top, but not bad. For the price, packing size, and comfort I would definitely purchase one again.
I will be attending philmont scout ranch this summer and am going to use this bag. this is a good bag but has a couple of drawbacks. one the temp rating is probably about 10 degrees to low. second you will need to count on buying a good compression sack when you purchase this bag. the one that is included is worthless when i got the bag out of the bow and tightened the straps 3 of them broke. all in all it is an all right product.
Ok bag & good for 60 or above
I bought this bag after my Marmot got holes from wear. The Marmot was a zero bag so the 3o degree bag lets in a little more air. This bag is perfect for summer camping or day use. Ilive in an old barn so I will buy another zero bag for next winter. I think the fill will last the outer skin is not as thick as Marmot, but I can interchange with the temps here in the sheep station barn.
Works as advertised!
Recently went camping with my Cub Scout. Got down to 35 degrees. The only time I wasn't cold was when I was in this bag. So glad I bought it. Very lightweight. Packs really small.
One issue was that it was hard to zip while inside it. Even though there are zipper pulls on both the inside and outside, I had to reach out and zip it from the outside.
Fantastic, Warm Sleeping Bag
Excellent bag - warm, quality materials, well built, comfortable; agree with previous reviewers that zipper does catch binding relatively easily if not careful - the only thing preventing me from giving this bag a 5-star rating. I also think it is warmer than advertised - a bonus (unless you want a very lightweight bag for summer). For the money, I don't think you could get a better bag.
Great bag for the money
I use this bag for cross country hitchhiking and its been working great. It dries fairly quickly while it is unpacked. It is a very long sleeping bag, I'm 6 foot 2 and there's about an extra six inches of room at my feet. it's very comfortable and the temperature rating is accurate. for its size it packs pretty small and is pretty light.
storage bag problems
I tried out the sleeping bag to make sure it was going to work since my next hiking trip is a few months away. I was very pleased w/ the sleeping bag, roomy and no problem w/ the zipper. The only problem I had was in packing the sleeping bag back into the storage bag, one of the PLASTIC buckles broke.
I've only used it once since I bought it a couple of weeks ago but it was comfortable on a 50F evening. There seems to be extra insulation in the foot area and the feet never got cold. The zipper is a little bit finicky or I just haven't got used to it yet. Nicest bag I've ever used.
I love the warmth it provides.
I'm a big guy, 6' 3", and 265 lbs. There could be a little more room, but it's great for warmth. The zipper snagged on me several times over my last 2 camping trips, but I managed to get it unsnagged in the dark with little effort.
Good bag, bad strap adjusters
I bought 4 of these bags. The reviews were correct . Several strap adjusters on compression bags broke immediately upon taking three of them out of the box- too flimsy for this application. They can be replaced for about $1.00 each and a little time sewing.
