When I came upon this bag was purely Dumb Luck!, I was over @ Galyans before they changed over to Dick's Sporting goods and noticed it early this spring (2005) I saw the retail cost of this @ $135.00 and had been marked down to $16.50!!!!!!! can you believe that?. I checked over it for about 30 minutes and did not find a single flaw.... what a perfect deal



Usage.

This bag packs down to the size of a nerf football and it perfect for a quick late spring-full summer bag.

I've weighed it and I only came up with 15oz for the bag and stuff sack so it was shy of the specs listed. The loft of it for being so "stuffable" is incredible. it's comfortable from 30 degree's +

it has an alarm\goodie zipper pocket near the head

I've had this bag out about 6 times this season and could not be more happy with it. it dry's from "dew" within about 30 minutes of hanging over a cloths line.

It takes up less space than 2 articles of clothing and you probably won't notice it in your pack.



Buy it!

I have owned two of these bags for 9 years now and cannot complain about them. I bought them new for about $120 a piece and have spent more than 100 nights in them in 6 states and they are still in amazing condition. They are rated at 25 degrees but i find them to be best when the temperatures are above freezing. They are my go-to bags on late summer trips and early spring overnights with an extra layer on. They are missing some major features that I really love in my other bags, like differentiated hood cords, a pre-formed hood, and a velcro free face area. For this price point I am willing to tolerate such drawbacks. They are nice and roomy and if you toss and turn a lot like I do you won't feel confined or find yourself all tangled up in the middle of the night. I don't know if these sleeping bags are still available, but you will not regret buying one if they are.
