Great bang for the buck

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

For a 20 degree bag under $100? This thing is legit. The zipper at your feet? LIFE SAVER. It's like sleeping at home and kicking one of your feet out from under the blankets at night only you're camping instead. Haven't used this in 20 degree weather yet.. But it was pretty toasty in the mid 30's!

Comfy and a good price

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

Literally have not owned my own sleeping since I was a kid so wasn't sure what the best option for my budget might be. This is fairly lightweight, pretty easy to pack down, soft material, and comfortable. The zipper isn't the smoothest, but it seems to have more to do with the shape of the bag than the quality. Also maybe user error, I've never slept in a mummy bag before.
Definitely need to use the scrunchy hood thing to keep it toasty though. For my needs, which are mainly light camping/car camping, it works great and you can't beat the price.

great bag for the price

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

For a 20 degree bag under 100 bucks you can't go wrong. I've only been in the mid 30s with it so far but was warm enough I only needed basketball shorts and a tshirt. packs fairly small with the supplied bag, but will get smaller with a compression bag. if your not looking to drop a lot of dough for a higher end bag, then this will work for you. My only complaint is that the zippers do get snagged from time to time, so sometimes a late night pee can be alittle harder to get out of the bag. I do wish it came in a left hand zip, but thats just a preference not a complaint.

Snug

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

I got this as a gift, for a friend, before a big trip to Utah . Here's what she had to say, " We did mostly desert camping so the foot zipper feature came in handy on not yet cold nights. We had a few chilly mornings and the bags kept us snug! Only down to these guys is they were a little bulky in our packs. Otherwise great buy!"

Great bag for the price

We tried this out in our backyard and absolutely loved it. Loved that I could stick my feet out cause I did get hot! We also got a compression sac and can get it way smaller then the bag it came with

sooo COMFY!

    Can never go wrong with Kelty. It keeps me warm and I love it. The price is great and i definitley would recommend.

    Kelty Tuck Sleeping Bag Review

    Check out this great video going over the Kelty Tuck sleeping bag. The best value bag in its category!

    Really impressed. Best value hand down.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Wow. This bag packs small, is rated for 20 degrees, AND is around $100! Just wow. You can't find a better deal than this. Sizing is accurate, and it is pretty durable. It comes with a stuff sack that measure around 8"x15" but if you buy a compression sack like a 12-15 Liter size it will compress it down a little smaller than that. Really a great buy.

    Really impressed. Best value hand down.

    Best bag in this price range

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is by far one of my favorite bags. I would give it 5 stars, but the zipper can get caught sometimes, but other than that, I love it!

    Tuck 20, everything you need.

    How would this compare with the tuck 35? Same difference just temp rating? Looking for entry level bag for a women for car camping and backpacking. Thanks!

    In love

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I absolutely love this bag. I've had it for a few months now and have use it multiple times, both in warm and cold temperatures. The lowest I've tested was around 20 degrees with snow on the ground wearing a pair of fleece tights and a thermal long sleeve. Not only was a snug and comfy, but actually got a little warm by the end of the night. I keep the side open only about an inch or two but it was just enough so I didn't sweat. In warmer temps, being able to unzip the bottom and let my feet hang out made for a more comfy evening. I'm 5'6" 115lbs so packing light and compact is a must for me to fit in my small pack. This compacts down nicely, (about 8x10) but with a compression sack you could definitely make it a bit smaller. I would highly recommend any bag by Kelty but this one is quality, and for the price it's a definite steal.

    Great Bag! Great value!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This bag was everything I expected. Took it out into Desolation Wilderness on a backpacking trip. It's light and very compact. I am 5'11" with broad shoulders so I got the long version because I don't like feeling claustrophobic in my sleeping bag. This kept me warm and comfy. With the extra space at the feet, they got a little cold but socks did the trick. Highly recommend this bag for quality and value. Also, I used the stuff sack it comes with as a pillow by stuffing some clothes and soft stuff in there. Super useful.

    recommended for backpacking?

    Its not the lightest, it doesnt have all the bells and whistles but, you could back pack with it. I would call this an entry level sleeping bag, its a great price and will work down to 20 degrees. Its nice to start with something not so expensive that way you know what you want when you are ready to invest some more $$ into a bag.

    I did a lot of research for purchasing my first backpacking sleeping bag. This one squeezes down to a great small size for putting in a backpack sleeping bag compartment. It beats out other bags because it is light (long version 3.3oz), packs small, good down to 20degrees, and is under $100. You cannot beat this bag for all of those criteria. Bill's right, great starter bag. Can't beat the value for the price.
