User Review: Wiggy's Super Light
Most sleeping bag temperature ratings are completely unrealistic. Wiggy loudly proclaims to be the antidote. I bought a SuperLight rated at 0 degrees F and I began to get cold at 30 degrees F under ideal conditions. Being 30 degrees off is only slightly less wacky than everybody else. The bag's design is clunky, and expensive for what it is.
If you read all the online forums which attempt to discuss Wiggy's bags (and one major gear forum has now banned the subject) you will frequently encounter flame wars directed at those who offer anything less than a glowing review. I can tell you from personal experience that Wiggy goes ballistic at the drop of a hat.
If you are contemplating doing business with Wiggy, you have to decide for yourself whether all of Wiggy's critics are out to get him, or just trying to warn you.
An appeal that is frequently made by Wiggy's apologists is to separate the man from the product (i.e. unstable man, good product). But the product is not that great, and contrary to what Wiggy promises, his Lamilite (Climashield) bags do not defy the laws of physics. They will lose their loft over time just like every other synthetic insulation.
Wiggy makes a big deal out of his lifetime warranty, but do you really want to be the one to suggest that one of his bags is not perfect? He has been known to take this personally.
