User Review: Ozark Trail Sleeping Bag
Fill: poly fill
Temperature Rating: 40 degrees F.
Weight: 4 lbs
Price Paid: $15
I purchased this sleeping bag for warm weather camping trips at the local lake. For fifteen dollars I wasn't expecting (or needing) anything that would stand up to freezing weather. Unfortunately the workmanship was more than a little upsetting, even for that price.
Inside the sleeping bag, the manufacturer skimped on the softer inner lining, by making four inches around the interior zipper, and about two feet from the interior bottom of the bag, a rough cheaper vinyl or nylon fabric. Not only is it harsh to the touch, but noisy too. And every time you move your feet you get to hear the crinkle of the fabric on the bottom.
The zipper could use some work as well...
What bothers me the most, (and the main reason I gave it 2 stars) is that the fabric is hidden and not obvious until you get it out of the package and unzip it all of the way. If they wanted to skimp on fabric, it should have been used on the outside and bottom of the bag! Not on the interior where comfort is the main issue.
I don't mind cheap...but I don't like to purchase a product and then feel like company I just threw money at was trying to hide something from me.
My suggestions is that you go for the 20 dollar Coleman model. Five dollars more is worth it for a more stable zipper and better (and less crinkly) fabric.
