With a good price and low weight, it is an excellent option for backpacking and traveling in three seasons.

Pros

  • Price
  • Lightweight
  • Comfort
  • Good quality

Cons

  • Zipper
  • Small internal pocket

This is the sleeping bag I use for my three-season outings, where temperatures can reach 0° C (32° F).

1) Warmth: The most extreme temperature in which I have used it was -6° C (21.2° F) and being with a warm layer I had no problems. But I would recommend it for situations over to 0° C (32° F).

2) Fit & Comfort:  It is a comfortable sleeping bag, not too tight at the height of the legs, which allows turning inside without problems. The only bad thing is that the hood could be a little more closed, to better protect the face and head from the cold.

3) Entry & Exit: The main zipper reaches below the knee, making it very comfortable to get in and out, on the opposite side, it has another zipper that goes down to the chest. The main zipper is large and of very good quality, but sometimes it gets stuck with the fabric as it is very thin.

4) Moisture: It does an excellent job of wicking away moisture, I never felt perspired inside it.

5) Packability: Bring its own compression bag, allowing it to be made really small, it fits perfectly in the bottom pocket of my backpack.

6) Features: It has an internal pocket to store our battery equipment during the night. Also, bring its own net bag for home storage.

7) Construction & Durability: It is a well-constructed and excellent quality sleeping bag, which if, in pursuit of low weight, the fabrics are very thin.

8) Final comments: I think it is an excellent option for anyone looking for an all-purpose sleeping bag in three seasons. Its low weight (1,110g = 2lbs 7oz) make it easily transportable for both backpacking and camping.
