User Review: Woods Canada Arctic 5 Star
i bought my 5 Star in January of 1977 and retired it this last spring. i have many stories to tell about that bag; it became more of a friend than a piece of equipment.
i have worked in bush camps all over the north and canadian arctic. i'm not sure what the coldest night's temperature actually was - the diesel fuel feeding the heater froze, as did a bottle of whiskey (well - half froze anyway.) (somewhere south of -60 i guess)
suffice it to say that that was the most comfortable sleeping bag, winter or summer i have ever had. i never was first out to stoke the fire in the morning. if the new bag is as good as the old and the size/weight are not a problem, then this should be the last bag you ever buy.
