User Review: Marmot Sawtooth
Design: Sawtooth regular
Temperature Rating: 15 degree
Weight: 2+ pounds
Price Paid: $180
This bag is great for the price. It's kept me comfortable and warm into the low and windy/wet 30's (this was in a three season tent with mid-weight wool base layer for sleeping). The hood pulls tight comfortably and the draft collar works (I another bag rated to -0 which is not as warm because the draft collar sucks, have to wrap a jacket around my neck to keep the cold out).
I'm really impressed with this bag, especially, again, for the price. I used it on a couple of 40 degree nights with a bivy. I was breathing into the bivy and the condensation from my breath moistened the foot of the Sawtooth pretty good. It didn't soak into the bag and did not effect the loft or warmth. The moisture on the bag beaded and dried fast. I would still pack it in plastic while hiking.
Shoot, I was so impressed that I just bought a Marmot down vest, and would seriously consider buying another Marmot bag when and if the need arises. I've already been eying the Helium; just can't justify the expense right now as the Sawtooth is really an all around good value.
Someone else mentioned in another review, and I repeat: You have to use a sleeping pad under your sleeping bag, or it definitely will not live up to its rating.
Sweet dreams and sleep tight.
