Rated 3 out of 5 by from good entry level bag for backpacking Pros: For the price range, this bag is a great choice. It's inexpensive enough, light enough, comes with a compression sack and packs small enough, and is warm enough for most 3 season camping. I've used it on 2-6 day trips, doing up to 15 miles a day; have been warm in temps in the upper 30s. Cons: I never slept well on backpacking trips, and am realizing that the mummy shape is too constricting for me, since I often sleep on my side and there's not a lot of room for different leg positions. If you're looking to go ultralight, this is a good entry level bag, but you'll probably end up wanting something a little lighter eventually. =>My all-time favorite bag is the Nemo Aria 35, which for slightly more money is similar in weight, but mind-blowingly more comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bag This bag repelled water when needed, kept me warm in the 30's, and stuffs down very well for backpacking. This is a great bag if you use it correctly. Mummy bags work by using your body heat to keep the inside warm. I made the mistake of sleeping with my warm soft slippers along with my wool socks and my feet got cold. The next night I slept with only my wool socks on and my feet stayed warm. I made the mistake of layering my socks on a another trip, and halfway through the night took off my extra pair of socks and my feet warmed up. If you have too many layers on it will be cold. I am a bit shorter and need to pull this bag up around core so my feet can reach the bottom....also key to keeping your feet warm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Sleeping Bag for Warmer Conditions I purchased this bag for my wife, primarily for backpacking. The bag was very lightweight and compressible (as compared to the bags we use for car camping), and appeared well-made. Ultimately, though, it was just not warm enough. I figured the 34-degree rating on this bag would be sufficient for any of our adventures (we're unlikely to tackle cold conditions). However, when late March temperatures dipped to the mid-40s overnight, my wife ended up stealing my bag to stay warm (my bag is rated for 20 degrees). So, we ended up returning this one, but will be looking at the Z Flame or Z Torch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend I used this sleeping bag on a 3 day, 2 night backpacking trip in Mount Rainier National Park. It got very chilli at night but as soon as I slipped into my sleeping bag, within minutes I was warmed up and felt great. Super comfortable and very fitting. Stuffs nicely for the occasion. Had no problems.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Brrrr, not warm enough Took this out backpacking in June in Oregon- definitely not warm enough. Will return it. Love the weight, compressibility, seams - but will not work for me. Was 40 degrees out and we have a nice REI tent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's tricky to find a bag that's altogether.. Lightweight, compressible, warm, AND affordable--but here we are! I am a novice camper and decided on this bag after concluding the specs offered the biggest bang for my buck. Happily enough, the bag kept me warm on a 45° night, but I got very chilly the next night when it dipped to 28°--which to be fair, is below the comfort rating. Additionally, I like that the bag features a small pocket to store my phone and headlamp in and that the purchase includes a mesh stuff sack AND compression sack. Some grievances I had were 1) the comfort rating is a few degrees off, 2) the zipper gave me trouble at times and 3) the bag can't zip all the way to the bottom and open up completely. Overall, I'm satisfied with my purchase and think this is a great option for someone not trying to break the bank on a well-rounded bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product on a budget. I went into my local REI to buy a bag. I told the sales rep that I was a fairy novice backpacker looking for something versatile, durable and for moderate temperatures, but one that wouldn't break the bank as a college student. Without hesitation he recommended this bag. Going through the bag, he pointed out some of the features that made it perfect for me. First of all, it is a higher temperature rating, so while it is easy to add liners that would make it more appropriate for even colder weather, it is harder to take away temperature to use in warmer months. Second, it is fully synthetic so that it is undamaged by moisture the way that down would be. The synthetic also makes it cheaper, ultra lightweight, and compact. In fact, the sales rep sold the men's version of the same bag to another young backpacker directly after me. I got to test this bag out for the first time this weekend and it was perfect. It is soft, plushy, comfortable, and lightweight and it compresses so well that it fits in the sleeping bag compartment of my backpack with room to spare. In the evenings it got down in the high 40s and I was perfectly warm and comfortable the entire night. I'm 5'5 and I went with the smaller size and it fit me perfectly, although if I was any taller at all I would go with the longer size. Would definitely recommend!

Questions & Answers

When compressed as much as possible, how big is the sleeping bag? Is it as big as a football, or a gallon of milk?

Asked by: AKgirl907
smaller than a gallon of milk, closer to the size of a football but more spherical, around the size of a large grapefruit maybe

What size compression should be used for the long? I just purchased the Sea to Summit compression dry sack 10L and couldn't make it fit. I am wondering if I am packing the sleeping bag incorrectly or need a different size or model. Thanks for your help!!!

Asked by: AllGood
The 10 liter size should work. Don't roll the sleeping bag, just stuff the bag into the dry sack, rotating the sack as you stuff.
