User Review: Marmot Men's Trestles 15
Fill: polarguard HV
Temperature Rating: 15f
Weight: 3.11 lbs ( long xtra wide)
Price Paid: $129
Although i live in virginia and hike mainly in summers, I wanted a cold weather bag that wouldnt break the bank. My prayers were answered with the new Trestle line by Marmot. The first weekend i bought it in March i went camping during an unexpected cold snap ( 20 degrees) and i actually had to unzip a bit to cool off.
While it may not have some of the bells and whistles of its more expensive brothers the Trestle is a steal. I paid 129 for the long extra-wide. The regular comes in at a paltry 99 bucks!!! while it does weigh 3.11 for the extra wide it stuffs nice and small and since it keeps true to its temp rating i dont have to worry about bringing too many extra clothes to keep warm while sleeping. Besides the weight the only drawbacks i can see are the fact that it doesnt unzip all the way which doesnt allow one to vent their feet, and i wish Marmot would have put a pillow pocket in it like it did with the other new bags. I mean glow in the dark zipper pulls are nice but id rather have a pillow pocket.. And while on the subject can all bag manufacturers take a cue from Sierra Design and put pad locks on all sleeping bags!!!!
