- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
One of the best sleeping bags I have ever used! I purchased it for a motorcycle road trip and this light compact sleeping bag was perfect for the lack of space I had for packing things on my bike. The sleeping bag kept me warm on the cold nights and the easy open zippers on the inside of the sleeping back allowed me to keep it well ventilated on the warmer nights. Very happy with this purchase!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Ok - just received this sleeping bag today. My first impressions are - Wow - This is slick. The bag came in an oxygen-sealed plastic ziplock-style bag, and then within that is a mesh zip-up duffle. Within the duffle is the bag itself, a laundry bag and a sts compression bag.
It is also accompanied by a letter describing the bag and the down within it, as well as a Final Test Report/Content Analysis on the down within it. They also include a 'slick' spec sheet outlining all details of the bag. I've compressed the bag within the provided compression bag and its the size of a basketball without really tearing down on the straps. I was hoping it would be a pinch smaller but all in all not bad.
Getting into the bag itself - it's really comfortable, with lots of leg/foot room (I'm about 5'11'' with claustrophobia issues). With my arms 'tucked' in, it's tighter than extra-wide bags I'm used to, but still not bad. And I typically end up sleeping with my arms outside of the bag anyway.
I'm planning on taking this on the West Coast Trail in early summer so I wanted something lightweight, with 'dry-down' that is compressible, but not confining. So I think this will fit the bill.
On top of this, Backcountry was able to pricematch the bag dropping the cost by about 25% so that was a great bonus.
I will add further thoughts after I try it out in the field.

Shoot me an email anytime you have questions!
Can I linked together two sleeping bag (one with R zipper and one with L)?
I'm 6'0" tall. Should i go with the regular that is 6'0" or would it be too tight. Should i be looking at stepping up to the long?
I would step it up to a long so you are comfortable and can put some odds and ends in the sleeping bag should you need to dry them out.

would this fit into my terra 45 sleeping...
would this fit into my terra 45 sleeping bag compartment?
what is the difference between a DWR...
what is the difference between a DWR coating, and a DWR Finish?
The TKII has the 'Coating' while this has the 'Finish'
also - are you getting the TKII in regular and long sizes?
Nothing really, the coating is put on the fabric in the factory and it results in a finish. Either one is water repellant and will have to be replenished. Hope this helps.
