Warm bag that packs down large. Great price, but you pay for it in bag space. Very lightweight.
- Light 3 lbs
- Warm, sleep in undies at 40 degrees
- Includes compression sack
- Wide version good for side sleepers
- Packs down large, about a 10x10 cube compressed
I bought the wide version of this bag. It is still in the 3lbs range and is nice for backpacking. The downside is that it takes up a lot of bag space. It has synthetic fill and with the included compression sack compresses down to a lumpy 10 x 10 cube. The non-wide version is only slightly smaller. So if your bag has a sleeping bag compartment you probably won't be able to get it inside.
I'm a big guy who sleeps on his side and in this case I love this bag. The price was super easy but I pay for it in bag space. Thankfully it is also very light. I'm a big guy at about 300lbs and I have way more than enough room in this mummy.
