I'm trying to decide between this and the...
I'm trying to decide between this and the Marmot Trestles 15 Sleeping Bag. If someone could help me weigh the pros and cons of synthetic vs down (your opinion of what's better) and significance of weight/size when stuffed into sack. Is down over synthetic worth the $45 difference in the long run? I used to do backcountry backpacking, but now I'm mainly using this for international backpacking and camping purposes. Maybe short backpacking trips. Just for context.
Both bags are awesome choices. The biggest difference you will notice when comparing a down bag vs a synthetic bag is how much smaller and lighter weight a down bag is in comparison to a synthetic bag. If you plan to use this for international travel then having a bag that is light weight and packs small would be nice. This way you have more room in your bag for other gear you may need when traveling abroad for extended periods of time. The pros to a synthetic bag would be that they will insulate even if it get wet. Synthetic insulation would be best if you plan to use this in a wet or humid environment for extended periods of time as it will not hold onto moisture like a down bag will. The pros to down are that it lasts longer than synthetic insulation if cared for properly. It packs smaller and is lighter weight than synthetic insulation. I have both synthetic and down bags but I prefer my down bags over the synthetic ones as long as I am not camping in a wet or humid area. If weight is not a concern and you have the extra room for the larger bag then the synthetic bag is a great choice. Otherwise I might recommend the down bag due to the smaller packed size and lower weight. Both Marmot and Kelty make excellent bags and I can say that after owning bags from both companies.

a good buy
1) the kelty down is comfy and warm!
----> since it is down it'll retain its' warmth capacity
2) The zipper has padding to keep the cold out.
3) I didn't really like the red color until i got it out of the box, it's not as bad as the picture makes it look.
4) adjustable hoody (its pretty open, you can get the opening pretty small but not like some other mummy bags, beanie may be in order)
5) 20 degrees for the price is pretty good bang for your buck.
6) comes with a stuff sack
1) It's 550 fill down which means it doesn't compress as well as higher end down, the stuff sack is pretty big for like a lightweight hiking trip.
2) not the lightest down bag,
Overall a great buy, I will continue to use this for my weekend excursions where i don't have to walk too far with it. I would definitely recommend!
Tiny and lightweight
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought this bag for its stuff size and wasn't disappointed. In a compression sack I could almost get it down to the size of a basketball. It's a great mid range warmth too for a cold sleeper like myself.
Kelty is king
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've had a version of this bag for almost 20yrs. It is still a go-to bag. Given that it's older it doesn't compress like the newer bags but it does a great job for lighter trips. You can't go wrong with any Kelty products.
Nice entry level down bag
Packs well. Light. Easily kept me warm on cool VA summer nights (50-60 degrees).
Wish zipper went all the way to bottom of bag, to possibly link with another bag. Zipper itself lightweight. We'll see how long it holds up.
I'm about 5'9" and the regular suits me well. I think its best to store outside of stuff sack in order for down to retain volume.
Good value priced down bag
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I got this bag as a low price down bag, with a price not much higher than the synthetic bags. I'm happy with the choice, because the extra money spent is worth it. Its much better than the similarly priced synthetic bags I tried: way more packable, light weight, and toasty warm. It is nothing compared to a higher end down bag, but for the price, I'm damn happy.
Some notes: I am 6'1", and the length is pretty good, but the hood does not fit well. It seems shallow, and the opening is huge, so you really have to cinch it down (a lot) to get a good seal. I honestly wouldn't use it as a 20 degree bag due to the looseness up top, but it does perfectly well as a 30/40 degree bag or summer bag. The loft isn't as good as a better bag, and some spots are bare, but they do well at overlapping the stitches so I don't notice many cold spots.
Its not the lightest, warmest, or best constructed down bag on the market, but for the price, I'm happy with the bag as a down alternative to a synthetic bag, but I will reiterate: I wouldn't pull this bag off the shelve for a trip forecasted near 20 degrees.
