Super warm, two bag system.
Well tested over 4 winters.
- Warm, warm, warm
- Easy to maintain
- Draft tube may be too small
I have owned this bag system for about 4 years and cannot say enough. I camp a lot in all weather from hot summer to a ton of winter camping. I sleep very cold, that’s why I bought this bag. Even in MANY nights lower than -10 degrees, I have stayed warm.
You need to “learn” the bag however, how to draw it closed, how to ventilate, even if you need a little extra. I slept in -24 degrees one night and added a thin wool blanket along the zipper area. I guess I only wish they put a bigger draft tube. But outside of that, wonderful! Easy to use, easy to clean. Just a great, warm bag.
I bought the big version and even though it is more to is more airspace heat up, I like the extra room for my pack boot liners and next day’s clothes. Nothing better than putting warn liners on you feet on a cold morning.
The two bag system (FTRSS) meets all my need. Outer bag for summer, inner for spring and fall and both for winter; you just cannot beat it.
Wiggy has been great to work with. They put some break-away zipper on the bag and there was something I
didn’t like about it; the pull was tough to use when you were zipped up inside. Called and they replaced the bag no questions. I forgot to return the pillow and even gave me a new one of those. They have been great.
The dual bags pack pretty big in the compression sack, but I guess, what do you expect? It’s a sub-zero winter bag.
I love it and I trust it!
Well, I keep reading about people that get a Wiggys…

Well, I keep reading about people that get a Wiggys bag and have nothing but trouble, but mine is awesome. I got this bag when I got some search and rescue trainingin MI, (it is pretty wet there in the upper pennisula) and have continued to be impressed. I have been wet and dirty, got wetter when my shelter colapsed, and still slept warm and comfortablethe outer bag (+35) seemed to shrink after some washing, so I sent it back and it was "found defective" and replaced. no problems since then. When it does seem that it is losing its loft, wash it. The loft will come right back. Really nice bag. I don't know why some people have a lot of trouble with Wiggy.
