Fill: 3M Thinsulate Lite Loft
Temperature Rating: 0 C (32 F)
Weight: 2 lbs
Price Paid: $100 reg, $60 on sale
Thinking this would be a cheap, compact summer bag, I grabbed one at the Sportman's Show in TO last year.
Well, it was cheap, compact and fairly light-weight, bythe 0C rating is ridiculous. I've slept in it indoors with long underwear on, and still been chilly.
This bag was not covered under 3M's 'Sleep Warm' TM Gaurantee, so I couldn't trade up for a warmer bag.
It's really only good for the hottest nights, but I am going to try it as a liner bag with my 3-season in the winter.
Beware cheap bags, their temp ratings are often even more exaggerated than normal! Always check how much fill is inside,
and how well it lofts up.
