The Eureka! Wild Basin conforms well to your body,…

Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars

Summary

The Eureka! Wild Basin conforms well to your body, yet has room for a large person in the sholders. the draw strings allow for precise adjustment to prevent drafts. The 3/4 length zipper is easy to grab in tight tents that you won't be able to reach to your feet in.

Pros

  • roomy
  • form fitting
  • stuffable hood
  • multiple draw string draft adjustment
  • comes with compression stuff sack

Cons

  • hook and loop fasteners to substantial (strong) for the draft collar

I am large 6' 2" and 240 and have never had a 0 degree bag that I could compress this small to about 8" x 12" and still get into and out of without difficulty. The double zip 3/4 length zipper works well for me inside or outside the bag and I have ample shoulder and foot room.

The bag drapes well for me and I am able to keep cold air pockets from being a problem. I was surprised and happy with this bag and have used it in a variety of weather and feel it is a great Alaskan summer bag for with a hiking tent or tarp. I have many uses under 5,000 ft.

The hood has a fleece panel that in warm weather makes a great suffable area for clothes that create a nice pillow. The dual draft collars are functional but the large hook and loop fasteners for them are tricky to get out of and so large that they should be opened with care to increase durability of the garment. I folded them back on themselves when not needed to preserve them and keep them from collecting debris. 

The drawstrings are connected to each other in a cord lock on the left side of the bag. This allows the upper and lower face opening to be adjusted quickly, individually and locked with the same cord lock. The hook and loop draft tubes and zipper keeper have double opposing layers that allow them to be folded back on themselves when not needed but some level of length adjustment as well.

The end to end compression stuff sack does the job, and with careful rolling, the bag is quite easy to stuff and the caps for the compressor have tabs doubled at the ends to help prevent pulling them out of the buckles.

Great bag...I motorcycle camp so space is a premium and with the design of the stuff sack you can make it a little longer instead of round. The bag is plenty warm for the chilly nights in North Dakota and Minnesota.
