30-Something from the City
January 7, 2012
The bag is warm and comfortable. The full-length zipper lets you breathe when the weather doesn't drop below freezing. I spent two days in Monongahela in July and was plenty warm sleeping under the stars in the highland meadows. I would guess the temp dropped to the mid-30s.
It is bulky and on the heavy side. I took up fully a third of my 5200 cu in pack, but with a pack that size, I had the room to spare. I've since picked up a compression sack, but that adds more weight. I'm shopping for something nicer for the upcoming season, but will surely keep this one around as a backup.
