Warmth-to-weight is amazing as always with Montbell.

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars

Price Paid: 30,000 yen or so

Summary

Warmth-to-weight is amazing as always with Montbell. Stretchy design makes sleeping easy for even the tossiest and turniest of us.

Pros

  • Design
  • Warmth-to-weight
  • Packs down small

Bought mine a while back in Japan and can say after 20+ years of buying bags this is the ultimate bag in my arsenal. Light, warm, stretchy, and packs down to very little, especially if you use a compression sack.

You really can't go wrong with anything from Montbell, but their bags are unreal. Check any and all reviews and they all say the same.

Summary

Bag is very light 2 lbs, compresses to fit in Nalgene bottle and warm as can be.

Pros

  • Warm
  • Light
  • Compressible

Cons

  • None

Bought two of these, one for my son and myself. Have used many times on Appalachian Trail and Boy Scout camps in below zero temps. Can not be beat, great bags. You have to get used to the entire bag rotating when you move, you don't twist within the bag, but that's why it is warm.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

By integrating a woven fabric cut on the bias and orienting the fabric s wrap and weft threads at 45 degrees to major seam lines the sleeping bag becomes more fluid or elastic in nature. Additionally, coiled or crimped fibers are used in the fabric weave to capitalize on their inherent stretch properties. The result is a flexible sleeping bag that makes tent life more bearable. The U.L Spiral Down Hugger #1 can stretch enough to accommodate all the gear you need to keep warm, getting dressed in the bag on cold mornings, and depending on how flexible you are, sitting cross legged in the bag! This is a staff favorite. Features:Spiral Stretch System (US.
