User Review: Mountain Hardwear Men's UltraLamina 32°
Temperature Rating: 32
Price Paid: $154
Got this bag because of the weight and ability to compress into near nothingness. I also really liked that the zippers on on both sides were only half zips. Plus you can zip the bottom zipper up and make an arm hole so you can stay in the bag and still get gear from around the tent.
I must say this feature was amazing last weekend on a section of the AT in Shenandoah, temps dropped to below 20 and here I am with my 32 degree rating. I slept in everything I had except my rain gear and was very comfortable. In fact come to think of it I haven't spent a night above 35 while I've owned this bag and I'm still raving about it!
Since this bag has the ability to compress to such a small bundle I highly recommend a compression strap stuff sack. I purchased one from Granite Gear and couldn't be happier.
I'm 5 ft 8 inches and I have plenty of room in the bag. Even when I sit up I can half cross my legs indian style in it. It also has a very roomy zipper pocket by the hood that's great for those items you always may need handy.
If you are in the market for a bag and DON'T plan on doing much cold weather camping, then this is for you. Even if you do end up in the biting wintery winds of the mountains you will be perfectly fine if you know how to layer and have already dressed accordingly.
