User Review: Marmot Men's Trestles 15
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $99.86
A warm, synthetic fill bag that keeps out the cold, but packs up poorly.
- Great hood
- So warm for the weight!
- Large compressed size
The bag was purchased to replace a worn-out summer sleeping bag with a real 3-season bag, and I have used it throughout Quebec in some chilly, rainy weather in Gaspesie and Monts Groulx, and some frosty mornings while car camping north of Lac St-Jean for about 6 months.
This bag is plenty warm, with a hood that keeps out all drafts. I purchased the long sized bag, but really, at 6'1, the long is too long — there is so much room in the footbox that my feet really can't warm up that space, so I have to tuck it around.
Getting in and out was never a problem, and so far the bag has not shown any signs of wear.
The big drawback of the bag is the packed size; I exect a synthetic bag to be bulky, but this bag, when compressed, most resembled a bowling ball in my backpack, taking up more space than I could afford.
