Summary

Super bag for winter camping!!

Totally worth your money. If it’s not below freezing, you may be hot though!

Packable, kind of, and big....but you can pack it. Not the best for ultra light backpacking, but if you are doing a weekend trip or a couple nights at a campground, it’s easy to use!

Best use is camping in the back of your truck for some winter adventures!

Pros

  • Super warm!
  • Nifty foot box/air pocket for your feet
  • Great hood
  • Amazing center zip
  • Easy in and out each day

Cons

  • Not very conpact when packed
  • Zipper sometimes snags in the supper flap

I took this bag out In February for some winter camping in the Eastern Sierras and this bag kept me super warm. One tip is to put some wool socks on your feet to warm up fast. But the large toe box helped keep my feet plenty warm at night. 

My buddy and I packed into the Second Lake up at the Big Pine 7 Lakes—up the North Fork Trail. It was 65 Degrees F at the beginning of the day and then dropped down to 20 Degrees F at night. Yes, it was cold and this bag kept me super warm!

This bag is super functional for winter and cold weather camping and the center zip is a killer design. Plus the extra cozy flaps around your neck are great. The drawstrings around the head are also super well designed for maximum comfort and minimally intrusive (meaning that they don’t poke you while sleeping). The drawcords are actually almost recessed into the mummy head of the bag (with the button/slip inside the edges of the bag). 

The night before the Sierras, we camped in the Alabama Hills outside of Lone Pine and it was 55 degrees that night. We just camped on our pads under the stars and I woke up sweating because it kept me so warm. It's a true zero-degree bag. Both nights of sleep I didn't wear any base layers or extra warm clothes, and I was plenty warm!
