REI Polar Pod +25
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $100
Super comfortable! Great for most weather.
- Comes in a tall size
- Easy zippers
- Probably not good for snow
- Doesn't pack down small
I love this sleeping bag so much. It is so comfortable, I never want to get out of it in the morning. Keeps me nice and toasty all around but not too hot. I haven't dealt with it in the rain or mist yet but it seems like it will do fine.
Easy to get in and out of from the top and in the side. The zippers are really easy to use and don't unzip during the night accidentally. However it does not pack down super small so if your going to hike with it make sure you have a large backpack or are willing to let it use most of your space.
Price Paid: $40
I just bought this bag and got it secondhand, not to say used. I paid $40 for it off craigslist. It is in new condition, supposedly used but 3 times before me.
I am using it in my place as I have no heat and it's getting down to freezing at night. I really like the bag. It's comfortable, plenty warm and is roomy which I like in a bag.
It's the long series and this one tho it's supposed to be 6'4" long I am 6'7" tall and it's long enough for me. Now I only wish my bed was! :)
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
A great value for campers and backpackers alike, the synthetic REI Polar Pod sleeping bag is priced for your budget, yet it's still feature-packed and built to last. Synthetic hollow-fiber insulation retains heat while providing loft and some compressibility; construction eliminates cold spots. Equally distributed insulation all the way around the bag accommodates the multiposition sleeper. Relaxed fit from the shoulders to the hips increases comfort by providing ample space to move around. Ripstop nylon shell resists water and abrasion; smooth nylon taffeta lining is comfortable against your skin. Shell fabric is treated with a Durable Water Repellent finish to repel moisture and stains. Contoured hood, insulated full-face muffler, full draft collar and full-length draft tube with ground-level seams keep body heat in and cold air out. Pillow pocket keeps camp pillow in place; stuff clothing inside pocket if you don't have a pillow. The REI Polar Pod sleeping bag has an external chest pocket that stows your watch, glasses or other small essentials. Differentiated drawcords (1 round, 1 flat) let you adjust hood and neck easily in the dark. Full-length of zipper is backed by wide, antisnag binding tape. Any REI backpacking bag can be zipped to any other REI backpacking bag because of the consistent 63 in., No. 5, YKK zipper; women's bags zip on the right, men's on the left. Pad loops provide attachment points to keep your sleeping bag and pad together to avoid rolling off onto the cold ground (straps and sleeping pad sold separately). Includes stuff sack and storage bag. European Norm (EN) is an independent third-party temperature rating, allowing accurate comparisons across brands with other EN-rated bags.
