A warm bag built for two.
On those cold nights, there's nothing like spooning up with your partner in the two-person Mountain Hardwear Megalamina Sleeping Bag. With its patented welded seams to reduce heat loss and maintain maximum insulation, the Megalamina will help the two of you sleep comfortably three seasons out of the year.

- Double-wide cut provides relaxed comfort for two adults

- Thermic Micro synthetic insulation is durable, compressible, and lofty
- 40D ripstop nylon shell with DWR coating for rugged durability and water resistance
- Full-length two-way zipper for versatile ventilation options
- Includes stuff sack - compressed size is 10 x 20 in

Great, roomy two-person bag
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Bought this for my girlfriend and I to use car-camping and on short overnight backpacking trips. We haven't had it out down to its 20 degree rating yet, but like the other reviewer, I have a hard time believing it would be warm then, simply because there isn't really a full coverage hood, and no draft flaps/collars to block air coming down the bag in between the two people in it. Plenty warm down into the 40's where we have used it so far though.
The zippers on each side are great, especially in a two-door tent where you can get all the way out to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night without waking and crawling over your partner. I also really like the laminated insulation. A great feature/technology from MH. Basically it keeps there from being any thread/stitching on the outside of the bag. Important for us with a dog in the tent who's often crawling around, don't have to worry about him tearing the thread. The shell fabric is plenty durable yet lightweight, and the lining is soft and smooth. Lots of room inside for two.
Overall a great bag but just wish it had a more full coverage hood, and a lightweight draft collar, especially in the middle.

Does this bag completely unzip to provide two seperate halves?
It does not zip into two separate halves.
Great bang for the bag buck
I've replaced two single zip together sleeping bags with one MegaLamina for car camping and have been very happy with it. The Mega gets a lot of its warmth from two bodies, which in the case of two zip together bags, you are only getting part of as they usually only zip together 1/2 or 3/4 of the way. This means your feet are constricted and the bags are kind of uncomfortable, which is not the case with the Mega. For plush, over the top comfort, get a Coleman inflatable mattress (and of course 12v pump) from WalMart and you'll be sleeping better than at home.
A word of caution with this bag is that it can be pretty cold if you use it solo, or, just in general. I'm not sure where MFG'ers come up with their bag ratings, but we used this bag in 35ish degree weather and had to sleep with all of our clothes on, as well as an extra blanket on top. But, for warm summer camping, it is ideal.
What double sleeping bag is the best for...
What double sleeping bag is the best for car camping in of Wisconsin, Indiana, Mischigen from May to late October? I would be very grateful as if someone helped me with this problem because I do not know what I have to buy a Double Bag.
Hi Klamostsky - I've used this bag (the MHW MegaLamina) in Utah, Idaho and Wyoming and think it is great. Double bags are indeed a bit tricky as you are getting a lot of your warmth/heat from the other person, so the standard rules don't really apply. I replaced two zip together bags with one Mega and have been happy with it as it is more comfortable. That said, if you sleep solo in a double bag, it is going to be cold, or least that has been my experience.
Zipper on both sides ?

It does indeed.
