Slumberjack Tour Lite +40°F
Design: mummy without hood
Temperature Rating: 40 F.
Weight: 2 lbs +/-
Price Paid: $35
Purchased bag at Bass Pro shop in Harrisburg PA for about $35, on sale. Wonderful for temps above 50.
One issue was the short zipper, which made the bag tough to get into.
I've had the bag for about 2 1/2 yrs and the fabric had started to unravel at a point where two different colors were sewn together (bad sew job), anyway, called Slumberjack, sent back to S/J in Colorado and in about 2 weeks had a brand new Tour Lite bag.
Zipper length on new bags are now about 3/4 bag length.
This is a great summer/spring sleeping bag that helps you control your temperature. It also compresses very nicely and is quiet light. So if you are looking for a light summer sleeping bag this one has everything you need.
Design: Mix between a mummy and rectangular
Temperature Rating: 40 Farenheight

This is an excellent summer bag. I got it for warm weather camping and couch surfing at friends' apts. As with many Slumberjacks, don't expect to stay warm at its temperature rating! For my purposes this bag is perfect though. The ventilated footbox is a great feature. If you are looking for an inexpensive bag, this is a great buy. It is also extremely packable down to the size of a football.
An ideal warm weather bag. For summertime adventures this bag is both comfortable and looks good as well. It held up well when camping outside with friends in July.

Comfortable roomy bag but don't expect to stay warm below 50 degrees F. I took this bag to Haleakala crater where the night time temperatures don't get below 40 degrees. It was December and yes it rained something fierce.(night time temperatures did dip close to 40 degrees I learned.)
I kept quite dry in a tent with canopy over it. Still with long johns, hiking pants, rain pants, two pair of socks, t- shirt, long sleeve flannel shirt and rain shell, I was just too cold to sleep. Finally in desperation at 4:00 AM I pulled out my silnet poncho, doubled it up and threw it over the bottom of the bag--as I was finally warm from the waist up with my jacket on. At last-- warmth.
This trick works and I advise everyone out there freezing the butts off in an inadequately rated sleeping bag to use it! The simple vapor barrier poncho raised the lower bag's temperature to comfortable levels and I soon fell to sleep until the Nene woke me up at a little past 6:00 with their forlorn honking.
