Beat the cold and the system.

It gets cold at night. Don't be caught underestimating this basic principle the next time you go camping; bring the warm bag. The Alps Mountaineering Crescent Lake 0 Degree Sleeping Bag can hang with the big boys in just about every area except for price. Techloft+ insulation is lightweight, extremely packable, and unlike goose down, retains over 70% of its insulating capabilities when wet.

large bag

    Bag itself is warm, but the stuff sack size took up about half of my 90L ruck.

    Perfect first sleeping bag

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Got this bag for my nephew for his club scout camping trips. This isn't the lightest sleeping back so not for backpacking but perfect for the beginner camper and car campers. Warm and soft.

    Good

    Fast delivery, comfortable, warm sleeping bag we love them

    Extremely Warm & lightweight but bulky

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    This sleeping bag is very warm. Great for car camping during the colder months. The bag is lighter than most its size but it very bulky and would only recommend it for car camping, not backpacking. I'm 6'1" and fit in the regular no problem.

    Unanswered Question

    Hi. I am 6 feet (maybe 1/2 inch taller) the specs say the regular fits up to 80" i know i should fit in the regular but im so used to buying longs i want to make sure i will actually fit in the regular?

    Probably my least favorite bag

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Pros: very warm, affordable

    Cons: bulky, heavy, and difficult to store.

    I had a tough time with the zipper (may be just my specific bag) getting caught on the lining- one of my biggest pet peeves, especially when trying to pack up in a hurry. Fitting this into the sack provided was a nightmare.

    Very Warm Sleeping bag

      Got this bag for my 12 son who is in Scouts. He used in for a winter Campout and he stayed quite warm in 19 degree weather. Great value!

      Nice warm bag.

        Nice warm bag very good price well worth it.

        Warm bag, nice value for the $$

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        Yes, I know, this is a large bag but I am using it for car camping. I am 5'11" and I fit just right in a regular. I like this bag. I am sure it will be warm at the colder temps.

        Great for cold camping

        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

        Bought this for my dad before the deer hunt and he stayed warmer than me. Has a chest and zipper baffle, roomy and stayed warm, just wish the inside was cotton for that soft feel.

        Car camping winner

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        For what you get, this bag is great. Extremely comfortable and super warm. Since it is a 0 degree poly-fill it isn't the smallest packing bag but that was to be expected. This is a great car camping bag.

        I hate the zipper.

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I'm only giving this 4 stars because the zipper is a pain. Otherwise, I love it. I have the regular and it fits me and my 27 pound dog very well. It can get a little on the warm side when you have a little space heater cuddling with you.

        Good Bag...a bit bulky

        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

        A bit to bulky to take it backpacking, but keeps you warm and comfy on a cold night. Good bag for the price!

        Amazing for cold car campers

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Very heazy and bulk but so comfy and warm. I would definitely not use this for backpacking since it is so large and heavy but it is perfect for car camping. Very warm and soft and seems to be constructed well.

        somebody knows the weight?

        The regular length weighs 84 oz (5lbs 4oz).

        Chronically cold car campers, rejoice!

          This thing is huge, heavy, and not very compressible. But you don't care. You're sick of spending winter nights on ski road trips shivering away in the back of your truck... Or if you're a chronically cold sleeper like me, spending even 20-30 degree fall and spring nights shivering away in a 15 degree down bag. No shame.

          Look, I love minimalist backpacking ideology as much as the next ounce-counter... But if you've got a trunk or a roof box to store this synthetic snuggle sack in, you might as well never have to sleep cold while car camping again. Plus, at the price, how can you resist?

          PS.... The wide version can fit two, if you're feelin' REAL cozy and don't care much about a personal space bubble.

          Heavy but very warm.

            Although it is heavy and bulky, this bag is very warm. I also bought the fleece liner to go with it and I've found myself opening the bag half way through the night, for being too warm, even when the temps are around 20 degrees outside. All in all, great product.

            Not for lightweight backpacking but WARM

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            The specs will tell you how big and bulky this bag is. There's no better value for a 0 degree bag. I've used it backpacking and yes, it's heavy, but so is everything in the winter. If I could afford something smaller and lighter I would bring that, but this one allows you to get out there and enjoy winter camping and backpacking.
            Construction is solid (comparable to my EMS, Mountain Hardware, and Big Agnes bags) and I expect it to last pretty much forever. The hood/collar isn't as fancy as on some other models but it keeps the cold out well enough.
            Since this is so roomy, I can put my summer bag (women's 35 synthetic) inside it and enjoy super freezing cold temperatures!

            are there zippers on both sides?
