User Review: Campmor 20 Degree Down
Fill: 550 goose down
Temperature Rating: 20 degrees
Weight: 2 lbs, 4 oz
Price Paid: $119
This is my first down bag. It is rather small. I'm 5'10" on a good day and the standard model said it was good for someone up to 6'. If you are anything over 5'9" I recommend getting the tall version. My shoulders are average width but I think I could do with an inch or so more shoulder room as well.
It is as warm as any other twenty degree bag I have owned. The purple color isn't cool like the more expensive bags but I sleep with my eyes closed. Workmanship is average. I liked the cotton storage bag that it came with so I didn't have to keep it wadded up in the stuff sack.
I'd buy it again but I'd get the long version. A thinner person under 5' 10" might love this bag. I certianly love the price.
Update: July 25, 2011
Now that I have used this two years I will add a few thoughts.
I like it more than I did at first.
My inflatable pad went flat on Mt. Adams a couple weeks ago and I was still warm in this bag, sleeping on sand not snow. It was about 30°F at night and I slept in a hat, socks, and base layers. I sleep warm-ish but I don't think that 20°F would be too comfy.
The no-snag tape inside the zipper is fantastic, no snags yet.
The shell material is pretty much down-proof, no leaks yet, unlike my OR down sweater.
The tightness issue I think is a non-issue, it's snug so my body will have to heat up less air but I still think anyone over 5' 10" wants the longer bag.
If it's really cold, I'll need to wear more clothes inside, get a good pad to sleep on and a bivy sack.
I still like it.
