User Review: Mountain Hardwear Men's UltraLamina 15°
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $105
- Good design
I was skeptical prior to purchase. A synthetic fill bag that weighs <3lbs and compresses to 12x7? Figured it would be thin and that I'd freeze my butt off. Turned out to be one of those rare pieces of gear that far exceeded my expectations.
The comfort rating is 30°F. I've taken it down to the freezing mark and it kept me warm. Also slept in it at 60°F and wasn't sweating. The bag comes with a compression sack and doesn't take much effort to cinch it down to the advertised 12x7. Easily fits in the sleeping bag compartment of my Gregory Baltoro.
It's surprising light for a synthetic bag. Puffs up quickly when unpacked. The construction seems excellent. The zipper layout varies by model year. Mine has a full zip down the left with 3 pulls and a 1/3 zip down the right with 2 pulls. This allows you to be in the bag with your arms out to work on stuff. Pretty nifty. The zippers are fairly beefy for a sleeping bag and I've had zero snags.
No draft collar, but I didn't miss it. The hood isn't overly large and the cut of the bag isn't overly tight compared to some. For me it's a great fit. I'm a side sleeper and the bag presented me no problems doing that. The colors (green and black) are also very much to my liking. Hate gear that looks like a bag of skittles.
Picked it up for $105 on sale from campsaver with their 15% email discount added. Super deal!!! So happy with this purchase I'm thinking about buying another just in case something happens to this one.
