User Review: Eureka! Men's Casper 15
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: Dick's Sporting Goods
Philmont tested and proven to perform whenever you need it.
This is an excellent sleeping bag for anyone just getting into backpacking who needs a little bit more warmth. It is a little on the heavy side at 3lbs and 5oz for a 15 degree F sleeping bag but not for someone starting in backpacking. I was thankful for the extra weight when we spent a night out at over 9,000 feet. Even when it got a little wet from the rain it wasn't that heavy and dried relatively quickly through the night.
At 6 foot I touch both sides of the Eureka tents we took to Philmont but my sleeping bag had plenty of room. I never put the hood over my head at Philmont but when I did at home to see the size it fit great. Every night and morning I always had trouble with opening the bag because the zipper was hard to pull. This seemed like it is was the only issue I had with the sleeping bag for the 12 days we were out there.
The bottom line is that if you are looking to get into backpacking in chillier climates then I would recommend the Casper as your first choice.
