Summary

Comfy, super warm sleeping bag. No issues in the cold!

Pros

  • Really keeps you warm!!
  • Good moisture protection of the outer shell

Cons

  • Cheap zipper! Does not open/close easily
  • Central zipper, no ventilation in warm conditions
  • Single cord on the hood, no possibility to close the front/chin area

I brought this sleeping bag on my trip from Patagonia to Alaska, and was really happy to have such a warm and comfortable "bed".

The bag keeps you really warm due to a closed leg box. The central zipper only opens until waistline. I never had to wear clothes inside. Even at minus 8°C (coldest night) I was sleeping in simple underwear, no t-shirt necessary. (Disadvantage: this sleeping bag is so warm it can hardly be used inside a house, which was problematic for me as I stayed on some couches. The central zipper comes as an inconvenience in this case.)

The only comfort I was missing is an inner neck cord that would enable me to seal the neck/chin area. Especially in very cold conditions heat can easily go missing through the chest/chin area.

The bag is very well sized, no issues with turning inside or feeling too confined inside. The hood is large and keeps the head warm.

The outer shell kept the moisture away, and even in VERY wet (condensation maximus) conditions the massive (900gr) fill was still dry enough to keep me warm without complains. I would label the description CORRECT indeed, moisture is no big deal for this sleeping bag.

Packing is small and simple. After unpacking it puffs up easily and fast. No big deal.

Massive inconvenience is the very cheap and small zipper, which almost always gets stuck and does not have a secure end position (I had it opening over night, no good!!). It just simply does not fit the general (expedition) layout of this product.

Bonus is a small pocket inside. Even if it is too small for my Samsung Galaxy phone, it is excellent to contain earplugs, sleeping mask, or smaller stuff.
