Toasty and roomy bag.
Lamina is going for an adventure. Im 6 ft and this is a very roomy comforatable bag, can be compressed much smaller than what can be seen in the photo. Great bag.
Compressed next to a 8.5"x11" sheet of printer paper. Using the included compression sack.
Hi, When will this be in stock?
Hi, When will this be in stock?
Mountain Hardwear Lamina -30 Sleeping Bag: -30 Degree
I need this bag in a RIGHT ZIP ...
I look forward to hearing from you.
Hey Timmy, you probably have an answer, but your best bet if you don't will be to initiate a chat with a BC rep using the Live Chat link at the top of the page. Best of luck!
Thank you to STEVEN JONES for your suggestion. I did chat to a BC rep but they didn't know when it'd be back in stock (in a Right Hand Zip). Is so annoying as I already have the left Zip and would like to marry it up with a right zip but can only find the bag online in left zips!! So if you ever come across a right zip bag on your internet travels(!) please do let me know. Kindest regards and many thanks for your thoughtful suggestion, Timmy
Will do for sure, Timmy.
is there any waterproofing on this bag?
is there any waterproofing on this bag?
No, but the shell does have a DWR treatment to repel water. All the same, I probably would try to keep it dry, if possible.
what is the "Max User Height" in the "long"...
what is the "Max User Height" in the "long" option? (I'm 79 inches height) - in both long/reg options gives the same number
The "Max User Height" for the "long" is going to be 84 in / 213 cm. You definitely should go long.
Hope that helps.

how do I decide on a Reg or Long? I'm a female, 5'8, 145lbs
You're a regular, which will fit users up to 78 inches, or 6 feet, 6 inches.
Warmest bag ever but too mummyish!
I'm always freezing cold camping and sleep colder than any bag rating. This bag finally keeps me warm and cozy! However, this bag is super clausterphobic on my legs. Go figure. I'm 5'7 and 130 lbs so it fits fine...I just like to move around and sprawl at night. If I could find a warm bag that isn't mummy style and still backpacking light then I'd be in heaven. In the mean time, this bag keeps me warm and I just need to get used to sleeping like a mummy!
would this bag be suitable for arctic like...
would this bag be suitable for arctic like conditions?
I would say that this would be a good bag for a pretty darn cold night, maybe not true arctic like conditions. Keep in mind that your warmth is dependent upon several factors which include: The bag, the shelter, clothing and your body. The shell is pretty decent, it should be able to stop winds in their tracks, but keep in mind that the temperature rating given is not always up to par. A good -30 bag may be useful to -10 depending on weather conditions. Mountain Hardware is known for its' durability and dependability in cold weather, so I would say this should live up to its name for you.
I recently dropped this bag on a bed sheet (to keep grass off it) with a 3/4 ThermoRest out in my front yard. Overnighted in -5F and slept quite comfortably in light tights, Stoic longsleeve base top and plain white socks. I DO wish I would have had the foresight to bring out a beanie as the cold spot on my head woke me up a few times, but I overlapped the baffles and ducked a little deeper in and slept fine. 6'-1" 180lbs. I have a Long Right and had plenty of room for movement even after ducking in with boots in the bottom. In a tent in same temp, this bag probably would have been borderline too warm for me. Weight and compressability are meh...but nothing outrageous for a synthetic bag of this rating. ZERO regrets with purchase so far.
Very warm bag. No regrets.
I really do love this sleeping bag. I did a ton of research before my Mt Kilimanjaro climb about bags, and although my group slept in huts rather than tents several people were awfully cold in their bags as we approached the summit. This bag was fluffy and super warm, and crawling into it felt absolutely decadent. When I unrolled it at each camp I would gleefully think about getting into it that night and snuggling up. I wasn't cold for one second of one evening. It is, however, quite large and took up a significant amount of space in my pack. I did not need a pad under it, which saved space. Getting it back into the compression sack every AM did take a few extra minutes. The zipper snagged once or twice, but this happens with every bag I've ever had.
I can't be sure exactly what the lowest temp was at base camp (perhaps a bit below freezing), but I can say that others around me had seemingly warm bags and complained of being cold. I was never cold and didn't even bother with the sleeping bag warmers I had brought along, instead I gave them away. I highly recommend this bag, and I would imagine that with a liner and sleeping bag warmers it would be absolutely top notch for the very coldest of nights. (fyi, I'm female and very petite, so it would probably be even better for someone of more average size)
I`d like to know which sleeping bag would...
I`d like to know which sleeping bag would be better for going up the Alpamayo in White range in Peru. The North face Tundra -20 or the Mountain Hardwear Lamina -30? Thanks.
I go for the "Mountain Hardwear Lamina -30" it is can take more heat

If you look at the specs in the lower right side it lists sizes for both reg and long

CAN THIS BAG BE TRUSTED TO -20 WHICH IS PROBABLY GOING TO BE THE TEMPERATURE FOR 4 DAYS?
Brian. Seeing as how this is a -30 bag... I would certainly hope that you would be okay at -20. Also, if you are in a snow cave or a tent it will be warmer inside than the ambient outside air and you should have nothing to worry about. Now, if you are sleeping outside without shelter at those temps I would suggest a different hobby! I hope this info helps.
I wish you could trust ratings. Look at these reviews for this North Face Dark Star -40 bag (dubiously cheap for a -40 bag) http://www.trailspace.com/gear/the-north-face/dark-star/
So far, so good
I got this bag for Christmas and sleep in it two twice so far and it is so comfortable!!! I haven't tested it in cold Wisconsin weather but I am planning on it. Possible review and pics.
Just bought it, have´t used it yet in harsh conditions but I love the feel and size, and the compression of space and weight is great. Will post update when sleeping in really low temperatures
