Geoduck Down Pillow

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A lightweight packable soft pillow for comfy nights. My old Thermarest pillow had lived out its useful life, and so a few years back I was looking for something to replace it. I came across the Feathered Friends Geoduck (gooey-duck) pillow, and thought I'd give it a try. On the plus side, it is light weight (6 oz), and packs down small in its built-in stuff pocket. The 700+ fill power down lofts up quickly, and pillow is cozy and warm. Workmanship is excellent... no loose threads or leaky down in… Full review

Winter Wren

rated 5 of 5 stars Midnight nature calls without getting out of the bag! I love this bag. It's rated at 25 degrees. As a standalone bag it is comfortable down to about 32°. It has 18.4 oz of 850+ goose down. If the temps drop below freezing I start to feel cold spots at the zippered arm holes.  I think that is to be expected.  But those zippered arm holes are one of the nice features of this specialty bag. On a midnight nature call one can from inside the bag, unzip the arm holes, extend the arms, release the… Full review

Osprey UL 30

rated 5 of 5 stars I highly recommend the FF Osprey for three-season use. This bag weighs less than 2 lbs for the long version, and I have been completely comfortable down to its 30 degree rating. It feels like a cloud of warm air around you with good loft, and packs down to a 12 by 7 inch stuff sack. I finally invested in a new sleeping bag last year to supplement my Marmot Sawtooth 15 degree bag. Being in the South, I wanted a fall and spring bag with less weight. I decided to look at 30 degree bags as I still tend… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent bag for anyone who sleeps cold and on their side. I sleep cold and on my side.  The Murre, made specifically for women, lets me sleep warmly and on my side with my knees up too! I went winter hiking for the first time and was not cold at all in 20°F nights.   At 5'3", I ordered the 5"6" bag thinking that I would just fit in the smaller bag and feel cramped. I'm not sure if this is the right size because I have a lot of extra space at the bottom. It still kept me warm though. It lofts… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Super lightweight (1lb 12oz) and can pack down to about Nalgene size, an excellent backpacking sleeping bag. Always kept me warm (I'm a VERY cold sleeper), and comfortable. It's pricey, but high quality. I absolutely recommend it. I am a 5'6" 110 lb female. When I say I sleep cold, I mean that at 40 degrees I am still cold in a -30° synthetic bag. The Hummingbird, however, has always kept me warm (as a 3-season bag). It's also very comfortable. However, I have a slight frame, and it's a tiny mummy… Full review
