After some experimenting with this bag in controlled climate conditions I'd say it's a 50 degree bag. The loft is a total of barely 1 inch, about 1/2 inch on both the top and bottom layer. A 50 degree rating lines up with the US Army values posted at sites on-line which rate a bag with 1 1/2 inches of loft at 40 degrees, 2 inches at 30 degrees, 2 1/2 inches at 20 degrees, etc. For every 1/2 inch of loft a bag gains or loses 10 degrees. The technical features on this inexpensive bag are impressive. As a consequence of its thin insulation it packs down very small; about the size of a loaf of bread. This makes it a good bag for lightweight backpackers who camp in the summer and don't mind wearing long underwear to bed if the temperature falls below 50. At 40 degrees I could feel the cold pressing in, and if I'd been tired from hiking it would have been taxing to stay warm I'm 6 foot 3 inches and weigh 190 pounds. This bag will fit a person a couple inches taller than me and is roomy enough for comfort. Viewed as a layering piece in a sleeping setup this is a good choice for lightweight backpacking.
Was looking for a good bag to take on motorcycle trips. Reasonably warm (I don't plan on riding to the Arctic Circle anytime soon), very compact, and long enough for me (I'm 6'4"). I was skeptical, but bought it anyway. After receiving it and testing it out... it's AWESOME! Long enough, seems like it will be plenty warm enough for my needs, very well made, and not hard to get back into it's little compression bag. Great value - even looks good.
i am a picky shopper, and i am happy with this purchase. it's a good sleeping bag given the price. i agree with some the reviews said it's a bit on the light side so makes it a good warm weather camping bag. it's very light weight good for carrying around.
Bought this bag because I was taking my wife on her first backpacking trip and did not want to make a huge investment in case this was her last backpacking trip as well as her first.... I had her use my North Face 15* bag in case this bag did not meet its temp rating as the forecast was for overnight lows of 35 during our trip. I stayed warm with temps inside the tent dipping to 38* wearing only a tshirt and shorts inside the bag. Although not as roomy as other mummy bags I have used I was able to turn over easily in this bag as I am a side/stomach sleeper.
My only complaint with this bag is the fact that it is tough to zip, the zipper continuously gets caught in the fabric of the bag.
Bought for my son to take back packing with the boy scouts. It was light weight, warm at night and easy to repackage. Very much worth the cost!
This is an impressive bag for the price. I hike and camp quite a bit and I've used this bag 4 times in the 3 weeks since I got it. The weight and size are fantastic. The bag compresses down to a tiny package in its own stuff sack, but gets 2/3 to 1/2 size in a "real" compression sack (big plus when I have to carry 3 sleeping bags for my kids). The bag has been warm camping near treeline in NH and MA where temperatures have dropped into the 40's at night (although this was with a bivy sack for 3 of 4 times used). I did not expect such a light bag to be so useful....and for the price, you can't really go wrong. PS On one trip the foot area of the bag got wet during rain and I was still comfortable all night. IOW the bag still insulated well when wet.
This seems to be a great value for the price. Size and weight are great. Perfect for our backpack trip in New Mexico. Stayed plenty warm although the temp did not get to 30, took a small liner just in case and never used it. At 5'10" and 160lb I had no problems, but it is a "form fitting" bag plenty of length for someone taller, I imagine a "stout" person would find this alright, but if you are too heavy, this may get to snug for you.
We bought this sleeping bag for it's weight & compressed size, after using it 3 nights in a row - the stuff sack ripped down the side seam. Now it is sort of useless to us without the stuff sack as we are motorcycle travelers and every square inch matters when packing.
This is a great compact 3 season bag. I have used it down to around 25 degrees - not recommended as it is only rated at 30 degrees. We have 3 of these as my two sons and I are involved in Boy Scouts and use them every month. So far the bags are holding up well. They also pack up pretty small and don't weigh too much, which is good for backpacking.
this bag is just about everything you could ask for. the only drawback were a few cosmetic loose strings from assembly. workable wise- great product. decent leg room for a mummy. give it a try.
Great bag for the money. I've used it twice where the temp dropped into the high 40's. It kept me plenty warm. I agree with others that it is probably not a true 30 degree bag. I'm 6'3" and it fits me fine. It is also compresses very small and is lightweight (2.9lbs). It worked great for backpacking. Excellent warmer weather bag for the money! It was about $10 cheaper than Amazon and it shipped fast.
I used my new sleeping bag last weekend and it really performed well. It was warm, easy to zip-up, and easy to pack up when it was time to go. very compact and will reccommend to all my friends.
Comfortable product for weather above 40 degrees indoors and outdoors...
I am taking my 2nd week long backpacking trip in Canada, and the 1st time around I had a packable sleeping bag that was too short for me. I am 6 foot 1 and this bag would easily fit someone up to 6 foot 4 or even taller. Very compact, nice stuff sack and I am looking forward to using it on this trip.
My daughter needed a compact sleeping bag when traveling to Australia. This sleeping bag was able to fit in her luggage with no problem and was easy to carry around. It got a little cold under 40 degree weather, but it was fine.
I was really impressed by this bag; I thought it was going to be really thin and cheap, but it's actually good quality and warm. It's relatively easy to put back into the compression sack too. Overall, great buy for the money.
i'm not that big, but i found that they took the "mummy" bit a little too far. i wasn't able to zip the sleeping bag shut around my torso without feeling *really* squished.
we went back country and found the sleeping bags, lightweight, and very warm. very happy with this purchase.
This is a great bag for the price. Can't beat the deal. You can tell it's a little bit lower in quality than some other bags, but what do you expect for the price? Just did a three day hike and temps got down to 32-35. A little cool on my feet, but then two pairs of socks did the trick. Packed down super small and light! Easy to re-pack each morning. A great bag I will be recommending to friends.
I do much of my camping and backpacking in Southern California, so cold weather is rarely an issue. Not sure how well this bag would have worked in 30 degree weather, but it worked just fine for me. I don't think I'm willing to test it out in 30 degree weather, rather use another, thicker bag. I am, however, over 6-feet tall, so size was definitely an issue. I have had bags in the past that were too small, and this one was plenty big for me. All-in-all, it's a great product for the price.
