User Review: Mountain Hardwear Pinole 20° (Long)
Source: bought it used
Price Paid: $70
Budget friendly, well-proportioned, warm bag.
- cut of the bag
- zipper can snag
- no footbox vent
I've used my Pinole (long) for about 4 outings now. I have never tested it in cold weather.
The things I like about it are the cut of the bag, the price, the feel and appearance, and the warmth. It has a slightly more generous mummy shape and I have never had a mummy bag before. I thought it was quite comfortable. The footbox is trapezoidal in shape and allowed my feet to rest naturally. I like the colors and the textures of this bag. It's got a fairly tough outer shell and a silky smooth lining on the inside.
The price is what really drew me in. Other sites tend to rate this as a good budget friendly bag.
I think I paid 70 bucks for mine on geartrade.com.
It is a bulky bag and you would want to spend money on a compression sack for this beast. It is also in the 2-3 lbs range, sorry I know that is vague. The zipper does snag fairly easily. I haven't been frustrated by this. I just take my time and it seems okay.
