Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: Scout Price

This is a very good bag for the price...I have been using it for over a year now, and it's my first mummy bag...

In the past, I have used one of the flannel-lined square bags, but glad that I made the switch. The bag kept me warm...well, for the most part, but my being cold was because of my own doing (I put my face into the bag, poor insulation underneath, and not dressed properly in bag).

If you have never slept in a mummy-bag, and are looking to try one out, this one can't be beat for the cost. 

Pros:

  • no-snag zippers
  • baffles stay put
  • packs easily into compression stuff sack
  • packs nicely into backpack
  • lightweight

Cons:

  • nothing -- only things that user can fix (proper cold-weather dressing, educating themselves on differences between mummy bag and standard bag)

Overall, this was a good buy/pick, and have recommended ALPS bags to my scouts (I have the WIDE bag, they only need the regular or long).
