Thaw Corporation 0°F Sleeping Bag

rated 3 of 5 stars Older heavy but very warm bag. Well constructed, but has no collar. The draft tube is upside down for some reason! This is an enigma bag to me. It says right on the label, "Down Insulated", however when you feel the bag, there is some sort of synthetic fiber inside. It must be mixed with down? The bag is very warm and worked great for throwing over another light bag in sub zero weather. By today's standards, the bag is way too heavy and big. It packs down to about 20 x 14". Weighs over 5lb. It has… Full review

Nooksack UL +10

rated 3.5 of 5 stars For a 10°F synthetic bag, it packs down very well (8.5 x 11), it's comfortable, and zips well. From my experience it's not a 10°F bag. I was cold in this bag at 40°F with thermals on. This is one of the most inaccurate bag ratings I've tested out of dozens. If the bag read 35°F I would consider this a great bag. Everything about the bag is positive but I would feel terrible if someone actually depended on this bag in 20-30's°.  If you buy this bag as a summer bag, I think you will be very… Full review

Shasta +15

rated 2 of 5 stars Though the bag is made of quality materials, it does not pack down well and lets out heat around the collar. The bag is a decent car camping summer bag but does not do well in cooler weather. I tested it last night (low 36°F). Since the bag had a 15° rating, I figured comfort rating would be somewhere around 30°. I cinched the hood and collar until there was only a 4" diameter circle. There's not really a collar to cinch. The draft tube extends from the side of the bag in one continuous run that… Full review

Campware Cup

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a lightweight, functional, and cheap cup that surprisingly has become my favorite one. It is a simple cup that meets all my needs, except when it is below freezing. I am slightly surprised to be writing this review. I picked up an REI camp mug on a whim a couple of years ago because it was so cheap, and it has become my standard cup for all my trips unless it is staying below freezing. This 1.75 oz cup is sturdy and simple in design, easy to clean, and doesn't burn when holding it or drinking. Full review

Downtime +10

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great feather bag. For the price it packs down small, weighs little, and is really comfortable. Great overall bag. Though some of the hardwear (zipper snap and grommet for the drawstring) popped out, the bag itself is great. I re-sewed the grommet back on and sewed in my own velcro tab over the old button that keeps the zipper in place once zipped and have no problems. The bag performs well in cooler temps. I slept very comfortably in the mid 20's in this bag. The collar hugs well, sealing in your… Full review
