Product Description

The Kelty Clear Creek +20 is a low-cost sleeping bag with synthetic insulation, designed for moderate weather. It is relatively roomy but also heavy, and is best suited for car camping or short overnight hikes.

This bag is relatively long and features a wide mummy-style cut that emphasizes comfort. The deep royal blue shell is made of ripstop nylon, and the lining is a polyester/cotton blend material. The bag is constructed with offset quilted stitching and two fabric layers, plus a third layer over the chest for added warmth in the torso. The hood has differentiated drawcords; the full-length zipper has a draft tube to trap in warmth and anti-snag fabric against the zipper.

The bag provides pad loops that let you attach the bag to a sleeping pad, in order to prevent the bag from rolling off the pad. Accompanied by a nylon stuff sack, the Clear Creek +20 is fleece-lined so that you can turn it inside out, and stuff in clothes, to form a pillow. The bag is available in short, regular, and long sizes.

The Kelty Clear Creek +20 is designed for the budget conscious camper who needs warmth in moderate temperature conditions, and who for low cost does not mind the added weight.

Huge...
if you want to enjoy the added warmth of sleeping with that special someone. I had a "technical" double bag on my "to buy list" for years. All I ever found were the heavy hunter/camping bags. My goal was to find a double that weighed less than my wife's and my bag together. Never owned a Kelty, and never thought of them much when it came to bags. But this is a beaut. We have used it now for approximately 2 years and they are still selling it, for like $80! Listen, it of course does not compress well. This is still a luxury item, but one worth having if your approach is tame into climbing base areas. We love ours, dual zippers, if I am hot and she is cold, no worries there. Comes with nice stuff sack that is soft on the inside which makes for a very nice large stuffed pillow. Two people in a mummy sack can stay a lot warmer than it is rated to, which is 20 degrees. Enjoy!
