User Review: Marmot Sawtooth
Source: received it as a personal gift
A solid performer overall and pretty true to its temperature rating. A good all-around bag for those who aren't too picky about weight.
- On the heavy side
I've been using this bag for about 2 years and it has stood up well to a fair number of trail nights. The Sawtooth keeps me warm and comfortable on nights down into the 20s, but I've pushed it as low as the teens and was able to sleep well with extra layers. Cold spots have not been a problem so far, and the bag seems to have kept most of its original loft. Careful storage is important with any bag.
The bag is roomy enough, especially compared to the tighter-cut bag I previously owned. No problems with sticky zippers, so getting in and out isn't a problem.
In terms of packability, this bag doesn't compress down to the size of many of the higher-fill bags. The stuff sack that came with the bag also leaves a bit to be desired. It's a little to small and has no compression straps, or even a place to grab on to for that matter. Needless to say, it's a slippery little bugger when packing.
Weight is not really a big issue for me, although there are much lighter options out there. Again, this often comes down to an issue of price!
Overall, a solid three-season bag that is well-constructed and won't break the bank.
