Great sleeping bag for the damned
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I got this for the sale price and I coudn't be happier. I'm one of the poor souls who are allergic to feathers and are condemmed to the synthetic world. However, it is warm and comfortable. I've only used it so far for summer camping and nowhere near the extreme ends of this bag's rating. Another great feature of it is that it comes with a compression bag and a storage sack. The bag compresses down very small and I can fit it inside my Mountain Hardwear 48L , designated sleeping bag compartment...usually only possible with a down bag.
Would definitely recommend this bag.
Great bag with horrible zipper.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is a great bag that is really light, really warm, and packs down super small with included compression sack (thanks, Mtn Hardwear). I've grown to love this bag despite its two flaws - a HORRIBLE zipper that seems intentionally designed to snag on the tiny draft protection liner. Also, the bag is a little too tight and definitely too short. I wish I'd bought the long despite only being 5'10. It is so short that the seams at the bottom of the bag pulled loose after only a few uses (granted I was really "pushing" down on the bottom with my feet to get the hood snugged down on a night well below the temperature rating of 35.) I stitched them up and used some tenacious tape to cover and haven't had any problems since using MANY, MANY times.
I've used this bag with clothing on in temps in the 20s and was plenty warm (though I tend towards hot.)
So, this is not the perfect bag, but it is a really great bag for the price. I've used it many times in the backcountry and it has held up great (despite the footbox problem described above which was partially user error.) If you're 5'10 or above, I suggest the long for negligible weight gain.

This back is a good value. The welded insulation doesn't shift around which is nice. It has kept me warm down to about 30 degrees (in a tent). I wouldn't push it much further but then again it isn't designed to go much further. Another thing about this bag I have found is how it is so go at pushing out moisture. I usually take any damp clothes I have and put them in the bottom of my bag. Overnight the heat pushes all the moisture out though the bag and I end up with dry clothes the next morning. This bag has been exceptional at this technique. Zipper doesn't bother me too much like some other reviews... though I have had it get stuck before. The zippered pocket isn't really useful. But the size this thing packs down to is really nice. It can fit anywhere. Also it is nice to have a store sack. You'll ruin your bag if you store it compressed. This bag isn't a bad decision.
A summer on the river
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I used this bag as a river guide in Moab, Ut. During the spring time it kept me warm, and as the summer grew hotter it I could drape it over me to keep the bugs off and not get hot from it. This was my first mummy bag as well, after getting used to the design, I found it quite comfortable.
It's pretty light and compacts down extremely well. Through all the abuse of multiple river trips there are no signs of wear and tear.
Very pleased with this purchase.
Excellent Value !
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Purchased this bag for my 12 year old son to use on a recent backpacking trip! Great bag for the price - overall workmanship excellent, even came with both a compression stuff sack, and a nice mesh storage sack. I was surprised how small it stuffs - even smaller than advertised. Other posts mentioned issues with the zipper, that wasn't our experience. Excellent value -
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Bought this bag in 2011. My teen son loved it so much (used for weeks on the trail at a time, weekend river trips, summer & fall in Carolinas and midwest), bought another for my daughter in 2012 (use some on the trail, in the tree house and for sleep overs). Both bags have held up well through multiple trips. They get totally abused, and wash clean and odor free every time (use a tech wash). No cold spots on cool nights in a hammock, cozy in a tree house, and wonderfully light on the trail. It compresses down to well under the listed 12". The included compression stuff sack is not waterproof, but compresses so well that we just slip it inside a waterproof bag. It comes in Left and Right zip, so note that when ordering. Zipper catches if you are not careful, but we've figured out how to avoid that (grasp tab, not zipper, as you pull). Love this bag so much we just ordered zero degree Lamina for winter camping and an upcoming Chile expedition.
couldn't be happier
This bag is great in every way. Firstly it doesn't cost a fortune, but secondly it's quality makes you feel like it is worth a fortune. I took this bag up the smoky mountains shortly after buying it. Even when I was laying in it under the stars on the top of one of the mountains with 30 mile per hour freezing wind it didn't leak heat. When I ended up getting out of the bag I noticed that frost had even formed on the outside of the bag.... I HAD NO IDEA. Needless to say, it is very warm and water resistant.
Can't be beat for the price!
For how much this thing costs, it can't be beat. It packs down quite small, is warm and quite lightweight. It also comes with a compression sack which is a plus since I didn't have to buy one (packs even smaller once you cinch the straps). I've used this bag in about 40-45 degree nights so far it kept me perfectly warm and very comfortable. I would have to agree with a previous viewer about the zipper; it snags easily. But, as long as you don't pull too hard you can avoid all the snagging. I went with this synthetic bag at this temperature range over down to save money and it definitely has not disappointed. Buy one! You'll be glad you did.
Great Product! Finicky zippers.

Love everything about this bag. At 6 feet tall, I would have been slightly better off going with the long version, but it's only a smidgeon of inconvenience since I can still fit inside. The only other issue would be the zipper. If you don't pay attention when you are using it, it can very easily get stuck in the fabric that runs along next to the teeth. Use it with some tender love and care, and you should be fine though.
LOve IT !!
The sleeping bag is great it is nice an cozy. It does take a little getting used to. but it kept me decently warm when i went camping in Illinois during the winter hahahah, i would not recommend it if you get cold easy but it does the job. love how it packs so small!!
Not very big. Can't even put my fist in it, but big enough to hold a few small belongings if needed. Personally ill probably never use it. I have pockets for junk in my tent and hammock.
Provided stuff sack
Snagged this because it was 50% off and I got an amazing deal. This thing compresses very small and it weighs only a little over 2 lbs. I am really excited to use it!
Is it recommended to go with a bag that...
Is it recommended to go with a bag that has a zipper to match your dominant hand? I would imagine if I'm right handed it would be easier to use a zipper that is on the left. I have never purchased a bag nice enough that had the option before. What does everyone think?
The general idea is that if you're right handed go for a bag with the zipper on the right (and if you're lefty go for a left zip).
Yeah I agree with that as well ^
I love this Bag
I spend alot of time in southern utah camping. This bag has never let me down.
left vs right zipper - from what perspective?...
left vs right zipper - from what perspective? is right while lying on back in bag?
left & right zipper, make one big sleepingbag for a couple
Its from lying on your back in the bag...right zipper will be on your right side and visa versa for the left.
What a GREAT Bag!
I live in Atlanta and was looking for a 3 season bag for trips up onto the AT. The Lamina has been a pleasant surprise. It's my first synthetic bag and I wasn't sure how I'd like it. As it turns out ... I love it!. Packs very small ... I put it in a 10 liter compression dry sack. It's temp rating seems to be pretty accurate. Material is soft and seemingly durable enough and contrary to other reviews, I don't find the zipper to be a problem. Last but not least ... this bag doesn't bust the bank. The only fault I can find is that I bought the long and at 6'1" , I barely fit in it. For taller guys, it's not exactly roomy but I use it more as a blanket so ... no worries.
This is an awesome sleeping bag that is all-around solid in every stat. Very compact, lightweight, and spacious for backcountry use. Mountain Hardwear continues to impress.
