Super warm, fluffy sleeping bag!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs large
I am a very cold sleeper and was looking for a bag to keep me warm in cold conditions. This bag might sound extreme because it is for -20 F, but for me, it kept be very comfortable at 32 F. Generally, for cold sleepers, it is best to add 20 degrees to a lower rating temp rating to get an idea of what is the lower limit of comfort. I used this recently on a trip to Bryce, and the nights can be very cold. I wore a thin long sleeved shirt and long pants and socks and slept in this bag. Fully zipped, it was very hot for sleeping at 32 degrees, but it is easy to adjust the temp by venting the zippers on the sides and opening the snorkel. The bag is really long for me at 5' 4", and also very wide since this is a unisex bag that is also meant to fit men. But, the roominess worked out because i like to toss and turn while i sleep and i had room to sleep on my sides. In terms of weight and compression, it weighs about 3 lbs and can compress to the size a little bigger than a soccer ball. It isnt the most compact bag or the lightest, it is definitely warm and i see myself using this on many trips in the future!
