This sleeping bag is designed for warmth even in damp conditions. The DriDown technology keeps the cold out and dries fast.


  • Warm in damp conditions
  • Packs down small
  • Lightweight for a warm bag


  • Zipper tends to get stuck
  • Gets drafty around neck if not sized properly.
  • Womens says it's sized to 5'8" but more like 5'6"

I bought this bag to replace my 20-year-old down bag after waking up freezing on a wet 50 degree night.

This bag is great for warmth in damp conditions and packs down light. I bought it to take fall camping and fight off foggy mornings. It's rated to 28 degrees but I found that it's closer to 40 degrees for comfort.

I am 5'8" and made the mistake of buying the regular length women's bag which is a max of 5'8". It's about 2" too short, making it difficult to cinch up properly and keep the draft out. The zipper is also difficult to maneuver because the sizing is so close.

I'd definitely recommend this bag, just make sure you get the right size. It's highly rated in the industry, durable, well made, but runs a little small in length, so I give it a 4.5.

Get the long and a maybe a model that is a step down warmer if you are tall and want to be sure to stay warm.
