I gave this bag two chances. I really wanted to love it, but I am now sending the second one back for quality problems. The first one that Amazon sent had poorly sewn seams and the fill was leaking out in large amounts from several points on the bag. I also thought the zipper was a little sticky, but nothing too bad. "I got a lemon", I told myself and sent it back to Amazon.
The replacement bag came a few days later and I carefully inspected the seam sewing right away, finding it to be satisfactory this time. I tested it with my new 13" x 10" compressor bag and was thrilled to find that it fit perfectly and compressed 20%-30% more in the compression bag compared with the stuff sack that Slumberjack sent it in. Then came the warmth and comfort test. I unzipped the bag and crawled in, finding that it was just the right length and I had plenty of room in the foot area. Then I zipped up the bag from the inside, being careful not to catch the lining with the zipper. Despite my efforts, the zipper snagged. "No biggie... I'll just go back and try again", I thought. So I went back and tried again, only to have the zipper snag in a different spot. It snagged 4 or 5 times before it reached the top. I figured that it might just need to be broken in, so after the warmth test, which went well, I decided to give the zipper a work out. Again I was careful to try to prevent getting the material caught in the zipper, but this was to no avail. The zipper snagged repeatedly, getting stuck so badly at one point that I had to get pliers out to get it unstuck. To the bag's credit, it didn't tear despite my pulling on it. I finally got it unstuck and took the zipper completely off the bag to give it a fresh start. It started out just fine, but got halfway up, only for it to snag again. When I did get it to the top, I realized that the zipper was failing/coming apart so that the bag would no longer stay closed when it was zipped up. I was beyond irritated, and this was in the warmth, comfort, and good lighting of my bedroom. Imagine having this problem in a dark and cold tent.
Neither my new Coleman Mummy bag, nor my wife's Wenzel bag have given me the least bit of trouble with the zipper. I would not recommend the Slumberjack bag to anyone.
Size thoughts: I am 5'7" and 120# I have plenty of room in the rolled out & zipped up bag, even to ball up and sleep on my side. (I bought the size I did because it was the size on sale and I figured why not) I couldn't give you accurate help with sizing because of how off mine is, but I do like the space.
-Not a very great hiking bag, size/weight -wise, as it is a pretty solid 1 1/2' long and about 1' wide in the stuff sack. (literally stuffing it in is more successful than trying to roll it up) It is fine to strap/tie onto a backpack (if you want to) and carry for a couple miles, or throw in your car for a drive out to nowhere, but I don't think I'd use a bag this size on any longer, tougher foot treks unless I had to--simply because of stuff sack sizing.
Temp thoughts: I've reached high 20's while camping without a tent. With only a worn out comforter and thin sheet underneath me, wearing sweatpants, casual ankle socks, a t-shirt with a thin long-sleeve over the top, I was very warm inside the bag on the coldest night I've had yet with it. It even lightly sprinkled on us all night and I was still dry inside my bag.
-I sleep in the bag inside my hammock about 3-4 out of 7 days a week lately, some nights with a blanket (simply for comfort), some without, and I am warm every time, even hot some nights. The zipper goes about 3/4 of the way down the bag, and has another at that end. I like to open the second zipper if I ever get too warm, so I can keep the Velcro strapped at the top and still get a little air in the bag.
Quality thoughts: I've never shopped this brand before, but I saw pretty great reviews on this bag (after looking at way too many). I've slept in this bag nearly everyday since I received it.. Not even a week after I received the bag, it got a rip in the stitching at the side near the end. Granted, I will say my nieces were having a fun time rolling around with it.. There was never more than one inside the bag, and they certainly didn't fight over it or tug it away from each other, but I noticed the rip a day or so after they'd left, so I will say more of the cause it because of them rather than faulty stitching. I simply sewed it up myself and it's done well so far.
-I do get caught up in the zipper every once in awhile, but it's only when I get to the top, and I've noticed it's mainly because I'm leaning up and causing my body to pull against the bag. Much easier to finish zipping once I turn it correctly and lay in it.
-Very easy to simply pull the top of the bag and unzip it, (which I do all the time) no rips or catching there... So the Velcro strap at the top helps if you don't want it to open while you toss & turn during your slumber.
-The hood has an elastic to pull it shut, along with the top of the bag, so you can shut the entire outer world out if that is your desire. Definitely helps when in cold weather. The elastic seems sturdy so far; I don't baby my things, so I assume if it weren't tough enough it would've given out by now.
So, to sum this all up simply:
temp rating is accurate (from what I've tested)
size is extra but I love the space
I would say zippers are a pro because they haven't ripped, and are quite easy to close/open, even if they've got caught a couple times
hood elastics and Velcro strap are both sturdy and helpful
ripped before I ever took it outside (but easy fix, and hasn't ripped since)
bigger & heavier than I'd like, for hiking at least
Feel free to ask more about it if you're still curious/I've left anything out. Will update again when the bag's lived more life, and will add pictures when possible!
First the shipping was spot on ordering Wednesday afternoon and receiving Thursday afternoon in plenty of time for my weekend trip with no damage to the box or contents (USPS). The packing was sized for the contents so there was virtually no waste in packing materials.
At first glance I was a little put off by the size, definitely not a Philmont sized bag where weight and space are at a premium. I'm mostly camping in Florida/Georgia and temperatures rarely call for a bag below 20 (°F) my main concerns were performance and cost. I spent time researching online and reading reviews of this and other similar bags before settling on this one and was not disappointed.
I'm 6' Foot so I ordered the Long size at the recommendation of a few other reviewers and was glad that I did. For the most part the bag performed as advertised the materials are top quality and with the exception that the zipper which had and occasional issue completing the turn in last 6 inches.
Tip: This comes with a stuff sack, don't try to neatly roll and put in. You'll need to put one end in and stuff around the edges until the entire bag is in a 30 Second job once you get used to it.
I recommend this product it's a great quality bag at an affordable price.
