Kelty Katahdin 25

rated 3.0 of 5 stars

The Katahdin 25 has been discontinued. If you're looking for something new, check out the best 3-season synthetic sleeping bags for 2024.

Bought two of these - for myself and son - on sale from Sporting Goods store. Used for 3 winter nights - temps from 26-35 F. My first Kelty product.

First, this is not a Kelty, but an import with the Kelty tag, apparently designed for the dept-store shelves. Second, it is not warm -- anywhere near 25 degrees. At 35, bag gets cool, and below 30 it is cold, even with thermals, tent fly, wool socks, and pad. I got a refund for the purchase. Buying this bag was a mistake, and makes me wonder about the other Kelty products.

Note: When I called Kelty to talk, they also admitted the V-2 tent was a cheap Vortex clone, and was inferior.... at least I don't own one of those.

I was looking for a sleeping bag that was moderately priced and could take a few 25 degree nights. I got this bag at a great price and was skeptical on how it would work in below freezing temparatures. I took it camping for a couple sub freezing nights (probably around 30) and it kept me warm with no hint at being uncomfortable. I of course had wool socks on and a mat under the bag but no problems at all with the cold. I would highly recommend this bag for someone looking for a cheap and capable bag.
