User Review: MontBell U.L. Super Stretch Down Hugger #4
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $220
The best sleeping bag I've ever slept in. The best night's sleeping on the ground ever.
- Zipper snags
- Stuff sack a bit tight
I love this bag. The best thing for me is the super-stretch feature. I've always felt claustrophobic in mummy bags, and have never slept well in them.
With this bag, I always feel like I have room to toss and turn. Yet it gently hugs your body so there's no dead air space to warm up. This is also the first mummy bag I've owned where I could actually make the hood work the way it's supposed to.
Entry and exit is good, though the zipper often snags when zipping in.
The bag is warm and seems right on its 35° rating. It lofts up quickly after unstuffing, and warms up quickly when you first climb in.
The only other nitpick I have... the stuff sack which came with the bag seemed a bit too small to me. Trying to stuff it in there made me really uncomfortable, and I ended up buying a slightly larger stuff sack than the one supplied. It just felt like I was crushing it awfully small, and I didn't want to destroy it right out of the box.
All in all though, I love this bag and am totally pleased with my purchase.
