MontBell U.L. Super Spiral Hugger #3 Sleeping Bag: 30 Degree Down
The deeper, longer, and more frequently you trek into an expansive wilderness, the more it makes sense to carry the ultra-lightweight down 30-degree MontBell U.L. Super Spiral Hugger #3 Sleeping Bag. At less than a pound-and-a-half, this down bag helps you slip into backcountry dreamland before you hit it hard again the next morning.
- Rated down to 30F, this bag is best suited for most spring through fall nights and mild-to-cool nights in the mountains
- 800-Fill down and Multi-Tube Construction with Flow Gate locks in your body heat for a toasty sleep without cold spots
- Tough Ballistic Airlight nylon outer shell withstands trail abuse and a long-lasting Polkatex DWR coating prevents moisture from seeping inside
- A draft tube inside the zipper and adjustable hood seal you off from cold air
- Super Spiral-Stretch System uses a biased cut fabric, elastic stitch, and gathers in the quilting so the bag stretches with your movements, keeps the down close to your skin, and eliminates dead airspace
- Auto-locking zipper doesn't move during the night and joins your bag with another MontBell bag; left and right zippers available (depending on inventory)
- Compression stuff sack packs the bag down to its 5.5 x 10.9in size (regular) and a storage sack helps you preserve the lofty down fibers
- Available for shipping only to US and Canadian addresses

While researching lightweight sleep gear, we came across the MontBell line of bags. My wife and I needed different size bags, but both decided on the 30 degree bag. When they arrived, I fluffed them on our bed and my wife commented, "They are so light! Are they going to keep us warm enough?" We would soon find out.
We went bicycle touring in Upstate New York in late September and found ourselves in some pretty chilly weather. Our bags were warm and comfy the whole time!
Their extreme light weight (1lb, 4oz) and small packed size make them a sure bet for backpacking and bicycle touring.
I have the SuperSpiral while my wife has the regular spiral. The Super does give more perceived room due to the cut. Both bags fit our needs very well.
Final thoughts...if this bag is not on your short list, it should be! You will not be disappointed.
Great feather bag

I looked for an ultralight sleeping bag for a long time and eventually settled on the Montbell superspiral #3. when I first got the bag I was concerned about the light materials it is made from. Those fears are completely gone after a season of use in the Colorado high country. I have used this bag and been comfortable into the 20's on some nights. the stretch fabric is amazing for a side sleeper like me! I haven't seen many bags out there that will give you the warmth for the weight that the superspiral does. The only down side is the price, but in my opinion it is completely worth the money.

I got the regular but felt too restricted in it so got the long instead. The long felt great and didn't even feel like I had a sleeping bag around me! The long was a lot more forgiving and stretched and moved with me while I tossed about. When I was done moving it synched back up close to my body (not in an uncomfortable way). The regular felt too much like I was in a straight jacket even though I am fairly slender. I'm also 6'2'' tall. The regular was OK lenth wise for me but the long gives me a couple more inches to really stretch out and even store stuff at the bottom of the bag that I need to keep warm. So for those of you around my height go with the long even if you're skinny. The down sides about this bag are that it is pretty expensive. The long is also a little bit heavier than the regular. On paper it didn't look like much but I could definitely feel the difference. Oh well, what was sacrificed in oz's is now made up in zzzzz's. I would recommend this to anyone wanting comfort where money is not an object.

I finally got to use this bag after buying over the winter. Very impressive with how small it packs up, and how it lofts. No problems with the zipper, and overall well made. Extremely roomy with the super stretch feature - didn't feel confined at all. Good bag for a side sleeper. I cinched down the hood in the middle of the night once it got colder, and found it both warm and comfortable. Great bag.

Most light weight bags are cut too small for those of us that are fit, but also have nice chests and shoulders. The girth this bag allows is fantastic,but it remains light. The bag is very warm and true to it's rating.
I've used this bag on rainier in august and the Appalachian trail in December and been very comfortable.
Cannot give this bag higher praise. I will be buying the 0 degree version for Cold weather activities.
