Leah's Bio

I love pretty much anything that takes place in the outdoors, I do many different sports/activities but am the master of none, yet. I hike, backpack, rock climb, sea kayak, whitewater kayak, canoe trip, bike, ski, snowboard, longboard, wakeboard, hunt, fish, camp and so on... I am studying Outdoor Leadership at Columbia Bible College with the hopes of spending my life introducing people to the outdoors who would not normally get an opportunity to experience the amazing wonder of our world's wilderness.

Such a great little sack! The medium works perfectly for my down sleeping bag and adds some extra piece of mind to the fact that my bag WILL be dry when i get to camp. Also works great to put wet mitts or socks in when winter camping, bring them into your sleeping bag with you and they will not get your bag wet and usually will dry out at least a bit and if nothing else they stay warm so that they don't freeze solid over night.

I purchased this bag a few months ago and so far I love it! When I first got it I tested it out sleeping on my apartment deck for a few nights at around 25 degrees and was TOASTY wearing only boxers. I have had it on one alpine trip in the mountains here in B.C. and was very impressed with it's performance. Our temperatures at night dipped down to around 5 degrees and i was still very comfortable wearing only a very light merino base layer. I am a warm sleeper so I figured I could push the temperature ratings a bit and so far the bag has not disappointed!! The super stretch feature is unparalleled by anything else i have found, it allows the bag to contour to your body no matter what position you sleep in which minimizes the dead space in the bag which really helps reduce cold spots and speeds up how long it takes to warm up when you first get in. This feature also allows for much greater range of motion greatly reducing any feelings of claustrophobia you might feel with a normal mummy bag. The adjustable hood and draft collar are really nice features but here lies my only beef with this bag. The draft collar is sealed by a piece of velcro that just isn't strong enough to keep it shut when the collar is cinched down. If you don't move at all in your sleep you will be fine but often when i move a bit it will star to release. Definitely not a deal breaker but I am going to be contacting Mont Bell to see if they will still honor warranty if i rivet a snap button closure to the collar for a tighter hold. The last point of the bag that i was worried about with my initial purchase but have since dismissed is the water repellancy of the fabric. After 4 nights of condensation build up at the head and lots of dripping both ice crystals and water from tent walls (gotta love winter!) the fabric was damp but the down was completely dry and it's insulation was not compromised. Would highly recommend this bag to anyone!

I got the all black player for my sixteenth birthday, i thought it was the greatest thing out there and was thoroughly impressed... then i wore it for a few weeks. It scratches far too easily. Its now been three years that I've worn it off and on for and it wore closely resembles the two tone than the all black. It has been a decent watch but the hour hand is now three quarters of an hour off (12:00 looks more like 1:00). For the price i would have expected a bit more durability.
