Before we get into reviews one must remember the most important thing.........this is a $50.00 bag! That being said I think it is the best overall value for a 0' zegree mummy bag that is ideal for a number of uses. I have had an immense amount of camping experiences over the 27 short years I've been around. I am an Eagle Scout and have camped in all sorts of conditions all over the United States and Canada. Now dont get me wrong, this bag will not compare to my $300+ North Face sleeping bag but who wants to take a $300 dollar bag camping with your freinds on a local hike or to go car camping for a weekend? The Northface bag is extremely light and only needed when hiking on long treks where extra weight cannot be tolerated. This bag provides excellent value for several reasons. It is ... full review
So where do I begin, this is a great bag for above 20 degrees. When I first opened the bag the stuff sack ripped instantly and is not made of ripstop or the same material as the Slumberjack. The good news is that I was planning on getting a stuff sack that was more compressible, so that wasn't an immediate drawback for myself. Remember that this isn't an extremely expensive sleeping bag and that you're getting what you pay for. As a weekend warrior this is a good fit for me.
I bought this bag for three reasons: stuff size, price, and degree rating. The Trailhead bag compresses just as small as many other down bags that cost hundreds of dollars more, and it certainly is the most compressable synthetic I've ever come across. It fit perfectly in the bottom of my pack and left plenty of room for other necessities. I like that the construction of the bottom of the bag gives your feet the extra space they need so that your toes aren't forced into weirdly confined spaces (I actually noticed this aspect of the bag when I was in it and didn't realize how thankful I was for it). The bag is also the most roomy mummy bag I've ever used. It didn't make me feel like I was wrapped up in a sleeping bag straight jacket.
I camped in the low 40s and wasn't even tempted ... full review
This product is just what i have been looking for. I am an avid MTN climber and hiker. The image on amazon is the exact same as the product I received. It is very well made, it really is as small as the picture. Before purchasing this product i read all the reviews as you are now. i have already recommended this product to a couple of my friends and my dad. i bought this bag because of its low costs compared to comparable bags of $250 or more. you definitely get your moneys worth. i have had no problems getting the bag back into the compression sack and making it as small as the picture. it fits into my 3400 just like i wanted. as for warmth it suits my needs just fine. the 30 degree rating is accurate. i am planning on using this bag on my trip ... full review
"Zero degrees Celsius, not Fahrenheit" - By T. Simmons (Southern California)
When I purchased this bag, it was touted at a zero degree Fahrenheit bag (even though it's got Celsius in the name, I should have paid more attention), now I see the description has been changed to "zero degrees Celsius" on some versions of the bag but not others. I really didn't think much about it until this weekend's camping trip where the temperatures dropped down to 17 degrees F and realized the bag is inadequate under those conditions. I spent a couple of very cold nights.
I've got to say that for late spring, summer and early fall camping, this is a very comfortable, roomy bag and I like it a lot. Just realize that it is not for real cold weather, I wouldn't hesitate taking it down to about 30 degrees F, but not much below that.
This sleeping bag is a great value--reasonably priced, lightweight, roomy, and very cozy at the same time. I purchased it for use indoors in a cool climate (New England in the winter). I am not a backpacker or serious outdoor type, and despite years of Scouting and family camping have never enjoyed sleeping outdoors, so am only commenting on use of this sleeping bag indoors.
The lining fabric feels good, not clammy or cold, against the skin. Between that and its light weight, it almost feels like a down comforter. I felt very comfortable in a slightly cool room--not too hot or cold. The extra length and width made it comfortable even for my 6'3" son.
It rolls up easily to a fairly compact size for storage.
I've had quite a few sleeping bags over the years. This one is, by far, the ... full review
I've never owned a mummy bag before, but this sleeping bag is like sleeping on a mountain of kittens, and it's that warm, too. Keep in mind, the temp range is 34-0 degrees on this bag since there is no standard rating system. I get cold easy so that's why I got this ~20 degree bag. It was probably in the 40's and pouring all night when I went and I stayed toasty warm and dry all night. The bag compresses very nicely, but even when you cinch it down it still looks like it wants to bust loose. The compression bag it comes with is decent, but it's just one-way compression with no straps encircling the sides of the bag. In any case, still a great buy. I slept great!
I'm glad I didn't let the bad reviews stop me from this purchase. Although there was nothing that I found faulty on mine zipper-wise etc. And rolling a sleeping bag, well I think you just have to use the right technique. I have no problems fitting it back in the bag, maybe a little bulkier than I first got it, but no big deal. I like the way it hooks onto itself to help keep it together from un-rolling. It's warm in 40 degree weather, haven't tried lower yet. I'm 6'1" so I agree that you can't fit all the way in it, but I knew by the sizing chart that this would be the case, when my head got cold I just curled up inside and was fine. I like it because it's light, warm, affordable and comfortable.
"Good general purpose bag, but dubious for cold weather." - By K. Rochester
Let me start out by saying this is a good general purpose bag. But I felt I needed to write a review to challenge the claim that this is an extreme cold weather bag, with a few caveats. Mainly I bought this bag for it's size. About me: I am 5'10" with a 46" chest. The circumference around my chest and arms with my arms at my side is 64". I cannot fit into a standard size mummy bag, and need something with a little extra room. This bag nails it in the roomy department. It is by far the largest bag I have ever owned or tried, and I have slept in the Big Agnes Whiskey Park bag. This bag is far roomier than the BA when actually sleeping in it. I am not exaggerating when I say I can ... full review
"Soft, Lofty Comfort in a bargin down package!" - By smartydog904 (Illinois)
When I first removed bag from manufacturer box, it looked really large in it's 8x13 stuff sack, as a previous bag I just tried was in a compression sack of 7x10! No compression sack or storage bag included, to keep price down probably. Anyway at first glance it's not very impressive, looks flat as well as very light weight and not like it would be warm enough. The other reviewer stated you can see thru bag at baffle seems, (true) which is a little dis-heartening at first. Bag did fluffy up nicely, especially outside in the chilly night air. This bag is very soft to the touch, I think outside of bag is softer than the inside! Outside bag colors vary but the backs are dark grey and inside light grey, great for critter checks! The manufacturer box holds a lot of great information that they should disclose in their ... full review
