User Review: Mountain Hardwear Spectre SL 20°
Fill: 800 fill down
Temperature Rating: 20 F or -7 C
Weight: 2.5 lbs
Price Paid: $240 Canadian (got lucky)
This bag is damn good.The loft is awesome (800 fill goose down) considering it is composed of Conduit SL waterproof material. There are about 3 stitches in total that are taped of course, the rest is all "welded" technology at work. Makes it lighter and less susceptible to water penetration.
It has a very nice, heavy duty zipper flap too, that seals out water. If you buy this bag you won't even need a bivy sack. I have yet to try and use it as a bivy sack but I will :).
The only thing I would like to see changed is that I would add a glow-in-the-dark zipper pull, and perhaps a compression stuff sack with it ... but on the other hand no good sleeping bag comes with a compression sack.
Conclusion: if you can afford it, buy it. I got lucky and scored mine for only $240 canadian brand new.
- Happy Camping.
