User Review: Icicle Creek +20 Degree Mummy
Fill: 550 goose down
Temperature Rating: 20 degrees Farenheight
Weight: 3lbs 6ozs
Price Paid: $94.99
I purchased this little known brand mummy bag from REI-Outlet.com for a hair under 95 bucks (saving a whopping 50% off cost) so this weekend I finally got to put it to the test in 13 degree temperatures. I must say I was a bit chilled that night but come morning the temps rose close to 30 degrees and then I was warm and cozy in this bag.
The Icicle Creek Mummy Bag has 550 goose down insulation, a nylon taffeta outer shell/inner liner and a nice contoured hood and fairly good zipper/chest baffle tubes. This bag appears to be of quality construction but come morning I noticed a few feathers poking out of the shell. I found the top of the bag to be a little on the narrow side--being only 30 inches at the shoulder area (as compared to my ALPS mummy bags which are 34 inches in the long sizes). But I managed to fit into the bag nonetheless. :)
Overall I like this bag--it packs to the size of a loaf of bread and it is fairly lightweight. I plan on using it on my backpacking trips come this Spring so look forward to another review! :)
