If I'm 6'1 should I use a regular or long?...
If I'm 6'1 should I use a regular or long? I don't know if it would be better to be slightly cooped up or have a bunch of extra bag.
I'd say go for the long. Small weight/size penalty for the larger bag, but man if the hood isn't just right for you on the regular, when you're sleeping you'll be sleepless every time you use it.
I personally prefer a longer bag. It will give you more room in the footbox for a hot water bottle or clothes. If you kick when you sleep, buy the long. Like Thiel said, the long will likely give you a better hood fit, and it will likely be warmer.
One important note is that the regular is actually 78" long. The average person is a little over 3" longer laying down than standing up, so you may have 3" of wiggle room.
Ultimately, I'd suggest you go to a local camping store and lay down in a bag that is 78" long and see if it fits, then buy a long ;)
Hope this helps!
I'm 6' and have the regular. wish I would have gotten the long. I bottom out in it.
definitely long. it's no fun after a long day not being able to fully stretch out while you try to sleep. shove a shirt in the footbox if there's too much space.
Waterproof stuff sac?
- Gender: Male
I am purchasing this item and would like to make sure it stays dry as possible. Is the stuff sac waterproof, and if not, what would you recommend?
I really wanted a L zip but hey, for the price I can live with it .
Pushed that lower limit of 16 degrees
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Nice and warm on a night in Shenandoah NP that got down to the lower 20's. I stayed nice and comfortable, though I can't say the same for my friend, whose bag wasn't quite warm enough for our trip. He ended up getting a liner for his bad at a shop at a campground after a night of very miserable sleep. I can't say much about the DriDown yet because my tent didn't have any condensation the next morning, but I'll be sure to post something about that later.
