MontBell Super Spiral Burrow Bag #1
Price Paid: $159 USD (on sale)
I opted for a synthetic bag because I live in northwest Louisiana, and camp and hike mostly in Arkansas and Texas. West Texas is dry, but Arkansas and Louisiana can get mighty damp.
I knew this was a heavy bag going into the deal. So far, I'm very pleased. I have not been in freezing temps with it yet, but mid-30's was a non-event.
The stretch system is great, since I'm a side-sleeper and can turn inside the bag. It comes with a stuff sack, but does not compress very small.
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Using Exceloft, Mont-Bell's Super Spiral Burrow Bags offer quick-dry performance and provide warmth that rivals most down. Burrow Bags are ideal when paddling day after day or when trekking in rainy humid conditions.
Backpacking ventures gone wet need not be scrapped. The MontBell Super Spiral Burrow #1 Sleeping Bag keeps you warm and dry while you wait out a squall in your ridgeline camp. Montbell used a classic tailor's trick and assembled this bag on the bias; this, along with stretchy fabric and elastic stitching, enables the bag to stretch and move with you as you shift during the night. It also enables the bag to fit your contours a little more closely without feeling constrictive, thus eliminated cold 'dead spots' in the bag.

MontBell has adapted a classic tailor's trick by integrating a woven fabric "cut on the bias". By orienting the fabric's warp and weft threads at 45 degrees to most major seam lines the sleeping bag becomes more fluid or elastic in nature. To create an even more comfortable system we utilize an elastic stitch technique to create small "gathers" in the quilting. By combining strategic seam orientation and the elasticized gathers we offer unrivaled fit and comfort. These innovations allow the sleeping bag to stretch with you as you change positions throughout the night, drawing the insulation closer to your body and eliminating drafty dead spaces. Keep body heat inside your sleeping bag, where it belongs.
