Ledge Featherlite +20
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $52
Good size, weight and value for the price.
- Size (packs small)
- Temp rating a little optimistic
Just got this Ledge bag after searching for a budget option for short, local overnights (in NC). For around $50 on Amazon I got the bag with its own compression sack.At that price it's hard to go wrong, and this thing is living up to expectations.
It's obviously not for every trip, but if you want a hard core backcountry option you'd be looking in the $300s and up anyway. No problems recommending this given the results so far.

It's definitely a deal, for me it was $45 and is a 3-season bag. It fits in a backpack nicely at 12 inches long and 8 wide in the compression sack. It always kept me warm and is plenty wide for me to sleep in. It weighs 2 lbs 15 oz and I just love it. The bag is also very waterproof the drawstring is good and it's a good quality bag for the price weight and comfort and durability.
- It has good waterproof fabric
- Good loft
- There's a zipper on the outside but not the inside
It keeps me warm all around.
The length is 7 ft. it tapers in just the right spot so I have room to curl my knees up or put on clothes in the morning.
It's not as easy to get in and out of it as i'd like because you have to stick your hand on the outside to unzip it.
It has good moisture resistance from dew body condensation and sweat.
It packs down to 12 in by 8 in, it weighs 2 lbs 15 oz.
After 5 min or so it lofts up amazingly.
It works very simple every time, all you have to do is stuff it in the sack or pull it out of the sack, unzip pull draw string and push cord lock down.
It has a small external pocket you can put a tissue in or a flashlight or watch or something.
It is extremely durable.
I use it in mild Missouri weather and I've used it 5 or 6 times and it's held up great!

Great bag for a great price.
- Stuff sack included
This is a great bag for someone wanting to try a mummy bag for colder weather without having to spend a lot of money. I got mine for around $40 from amazon. I've only used it a few times but so far I am very impressed. This was my first mummy bag. I plan to do week long backpacking trips with it.
It packs down nicely in the included stuff sack. The sack has a drawstring top closure as well as four buckle straps on the side to compress it further.
I've used the bag in temps down in the low 30's and stayed plenty warm. The key to mummy bags is to dress minimally so the bag can hold the heat your body produces. I slept in underwear and t-shirt with no issues. I am 5'6' and 155 lbs. and had plenty of room inside. I can slide down to the bottom of the bag and my head won't even reach the top opening. This leaves me plenty of room for my next day clothes so they will be warm in the morning when I put them on.
The bag is easy to get in and out of, zipper works well and can reverse zip if you need ventilation at your feet. Plenty of headroom, space for a small pillow (I use a Therm-a-Rest compression pillow size small 12" x 16").
Bag appears to be well constructed and has held up for the few times of use. Time will tell.
Overall I am very pleased with this sleeping bag. I may review it again after more use next year.

Ok I will admit that this review might be partly my fault.
First of all one should expect problems with a bag that's to big for yourself. I'm 5'10" and weigh 145. This bag is 84"x32"x20". In my opinion that is a BIG bag for my build. But the Ledge company only makes the one size (one size fits all?).
I bought the bag becouse I needed a winter bag for the Oregon coast. First night out was a short trip out to Three Mile Lake. It was very moist night. No rain. But even the underside of the tarp was dripping in the morning. Temps were in the low 40s that night. I wore my thermals to bed. The bag never warmed up at all. I had room to get way down in the bag and roll around.
In writing this review I realize that some of this is my fault. But Ledge only make this size bag so some of the blame is on their heads.
In short make sure that the bag you by fits you well or a +20 bag won't keep you warm at +40.
Other that that the stitching is great. And it comes with an exterior zip pocket. I like inner pockets. Zips 3/4 down the left side. with a very nice air baffle. I'm sure that someone of a large stature would be very comfy in it.
