Gives down a run for its money.
The Mountain Hardwear Lamina Z Blaze -15 Degree Synthetic Sleeping Bag uses innovative design features to offer the benefits of a down bag in a durable synthetic package that's better suited for damp environments. Lamina welded construction anchors continuous insulation to a seamless, water-resistant shell fabric, and it allows the insulation to be selectively zoned to maximize warmth where you need it most while reducing weight and bulk in other areas. The result is a bag that insulates more efficiently while saving weight and packing down smaller.
Lamina Revamp Ripstop fabric offers lightweight durability and water-resistance. Thermal.Q insulation is highly compressible and maintains excellent loft, which, when combined with Lamina construction, rivals the performance of down. And unlike down, Thermal.Q will continue to insulate even if it gets wet. A slightly wider mummy cut allows you wear layers to bed when it's truly frigid outside. The comfort footbox lets your feet rest in a natural position, and a face gasket and tailored hood block drafts and seal in warmth. If you're planning on camping when snow blankets the ground, make sure you have the Lamina Z Blaze on your side.

Tried 5, picked 1
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Okay, so my review is based solely on "fit" for a tall guy. I bought five winter sleeping bags to test- feel, comfort and dimensions and how durable the materials "felt". In the end I kept only 1 (Marmot CWM). As I sent the 4 others back and did not try them in actual sleeping situations, I cannot comment as to their performance in cold weather- only fit and initial comfort for a 6'6" guy who weighs 215 lbs.
Of the 5 bags, this probably would have been my last choice. However, with that said- it still seemed like a quality bag.
MH Lamina Z Bonfire
Of the 5 this one seemed the least comfortable to me, mostly based on it felt a little snug around the shoulders (though I'm fairly broad shouldered), but the nylon material on the inside of the bag was not as soft to the touch as some of the others. This however was to be expected as it was the cheapest bag I was trying as well. I also did not care for the foot box as much on this one.
My suggestion is that the MH Lamina appeared to be quality, but I would probably go with the Lamina Z Bonfire for an extra $20. It felt a little more comfy to me, even though the cut really similar. It may have been just a little extra insulation, though the difference really is going to be nominal at best.
In the end, the last of my 5, but still appeared to be a quality bag. Only rated a 3 based on overall comfort, and probably not a fair comparison to the $700 bag range either.
how big is when i rolled it ?
I mean how big is when it is packed ?
I have the -20 version of this bag and when I roll mine up it is roughly the size of a slim waste paper basket. So think 12 in long, 5 wide. I pack it down into my 80 liter kelty bag no problem. Feel free to hit me up directly with any additional questions.
