User Review: Sierra Designs Wicked Fast
Price Paid: $160
I have used my SD Wicked fast in a variety of settings. Before you read on, let it be known that I am a warm sleeper. I usually use a cotton sleeping bag liner with this. In the summer months I find the bag usually too hot so I unzip it and/or sleep mostly out of it or on top of it in the liner only. I have used it on several snowshoe backpacking trips and never been cold (tent, groundcloth, pad and liner w good clothes) .
Two occasion stand out to me. A short solo backpacking trip where I ended up in 5 feet of snow after starting out in dry 70 degree weather. As i ascended from 200 to 4000 feet I was postholing and cold. I set up my tarp (no tent) and slept very good in this bag. Another time doing a section of the PCT near mount Jefferson (Oregon). I got down to 32 degrees the first night and 23 the second! I was fine both nights.
The bag takes some getting used to. It is small. It is tight around your body so if you move around a lot you may not like it. I have gotten used to it and whatever minor lack of comfort it may give you is more than made up for by the low weigh and the comfort that grants.
Great bag that doesn't blow the bank.
