User Review: Eureka! Unisex Cimarron 15
Temperature Rating: 15 F
Weight: 4 pounds
Price Paid: $35
First - I don't expect too much from a $35 dollar sleeping bag. It's rated at 15 degrees. I'd say 30 is a better guestimate. Purchased it new early spring 2008 and it's now Sept. Have used it about 10 times so far.
Most recently on a 6 night camping trip to the Redwoods in No. Cal. Nights dipped into the lower 40s and I was warm in shorts/t-shirt. I am a warm sleeper though (170 lbs). I probably wouldn't recommend it for backpacking, it's 4 pounds and not that small and I wouldn't trust the zipper in the backcountry in cold weather. For car camping though, it does pack reasonably small (much smaller than a cotton rectangle bag) and I don't worry about leaving it in the tent (or wherever) for the day - something I can't (won't) do with nice backpacking gear when car camping/day hiking.
Have had to trim a few threads and the zipper length doesn't go all the way down to your feet - which makes doing the half in, half out thing a pain, which being a warm sleeper I often do. That's my only complaint really.
2.5 stars mainly due to price. Although some would see that as a plus :) I'm not expecting it to last more than 2-3 years of car camping, and at $35 dollars (online) I wouldn't expect it to.
