I was in Sam's Club today and noticed they were selling their Swiss Gear Elite Series sleeping bags for $20. They are rated at 0 degrees. Has anyone had any good luck with this sleeping bag or knows who makes them for Swiss Gear.


I know you get what you pay for, but sometimes you can stumble across something that works and doesn't cost an arm or a leg.


Any help would be appreciated!

I personally wouldn't waste my money if I needed the bag for backcountry travel, too risky.

I have had one of these for several years. While there are lighter bags out there, it has worked fine for the lower 30's that I have used it in. It is now used as a loner bag for when I take my Boy Scout troop out in cooler weather.

Appreciate the input. Sounds like this is a heavy bag that has some potential.
