User Review: REI Kilo Plus 0
Temperature Rating: 0 F
Price Paid: $80
Scratch and dent sale baby! Got a great deal on this bag because it "leaked feathers" which nearly every down bag does, albeit very slowly.
I have only tested it but my girlfriend (very warm sleeper) used it in the summer on 50 degree nights (all the way zipped up of course) and loved it. Just 5 minutes in it at room temp is enough to get me sweating profusely, great sign.
Going heavy on the insulation up top and compartmentalizing the bag are both great features. Mummy design and cinch cord have worked great for me. I don't feel cramped at all. I used this bag at -5 with a 30 degree bag as the outer and wasn't toasty, but warm enough.
Of course I can't blame it on the kilo because there could have been some compression of insulation with the double bag technique, and there was definitely some frost in the tent as well. Gets the job done though! Lightweight and packs small, the compression sack is a nice features, even though I know some people aren't crazy about it I like it enough.
I'm not sure if they stopped making this bag or what but I like it. Selling it on ebay now so I can have a bag for those extreme winter temperatures I anticipate. Wish me luck.
