Description

Go light, stay warm.

When autumn trails beckon, spring tours siren, and summer mountaineering is on the docket, the Stoic Vamp 30-Degree Down Sleeping bag steps up. Bolstered for performance with lightweight Microlight Pertex fabric, the Vamp 30 stands up to seasons of use without backing down. 650-Fill down insulation fends off the evening freeze, while draft tubes keep your body heat on a short leash. Toss a hot water bottle in the zippered footbox pocket and say good bye to the shivers during those biter nights. The Vamp 30’s side-zip caters to back-sleepers, while the vertical baffles in the torso hold the down insulation in place when you feel like sleeping on your side. Weighing in at the low end of the scale, the Stoic Vamp 30 is light on the back, but heavy on the good-night’s-rest.

seriously comfortable

It really is as comfortable as the picture looks. It's not on par with a $300+ bag, but for going on the 3 to 4 day hikes with a couple of people in the spring, summer or fall, it's pretty great. I've used it in 20 degree weather to the heigth of summer in the inland north west. Granted that's in the 70's over night, but still kept me very comfortable in both the temps.

Light and warm

I'm an experienced backpacker. I bought this bag for 3 season backpacking along the Appalachian trail and it is great. Packs down small - about the size of a medium-sized gatorade bottle (thicker but shorter than nalgene) and it is very light - esp for the price! 30 degree rating is more than fair. This bag is too warm all zipped up at 45+! Unstuff and let it decompress a couple hours before you get in and you are good to go.

Zippers could be easier to use. Mine tend to get caught on the lining. The storm flap against the zipper sometimes doesn't cover along its entire length and you can get cold spots but these are easily fixed with a little shuffle. These are extremely minor complaints at this price point.

This is a fantastic bag, and at the price these are going for these days, a real steal.

Good for big people

I bought this bag for a 3 week summer camping trip in the mountains and was very happy with the warmth and weight. I'm 5'9" and 145lbs and I got the long because it was what was in stock and it is HUGE. It packs small but I can stand up in it with my hands inside the hood and arms stretched straight over my head and not pull it tight. It's also wide enough to let me pull my knees to my chest inside the bad. So, if you're on the bigger side this is the bag for you. Not sure why there's a pocket at the feet, but it could be useful and it's large. The only thing I would change is add loops to the bottom for hanging storage.

Great!

As a disclaimer, this is my first down sleeping bag; however, compared to the ones my friends have owned, and my own Marmot synthetic bag, this is an absolutely incredible bag. The Pertex Microlight fabric is incredibly soft and comfortable against your skin, and sheds a little water as well, which is pretty essential with down. The down itself is warm and thick, but very light and compressible. The bag fits into a Sea to Summit eVac sack 8L perfectly. The 30 degree rating is very fair, and I think it might even be warm enough to take it a little lower.

value / temp rating

The Stoic Vamp 30 seemed like a great value. Upon receiving these bags, however, we could see they had suspiciously little loft. And after using them a couple times, my wife and I agreed: The temperature rating is way too optimistic. 40° to 45° would be more realistic.

Backcountry.com has been excellent to deal with -- on the purchase, and on the return -- so they've certainly earned our continued patronage. We've exchanged the Stoic Vamp 30s for North Face Blue Kazoos, which we're assuming will come closer to living up to their 30° rating.

Love it

Packs super small and kept me warm at about 35-40 degrees. Easy to get into the compression bag. I'm about 5'10" and have the long and it isn't too big so anyone over 6 feet tall should be cautious but it works great for me.

Vamp 30 Sleeping Bag

Got it for next to nothing, so i had to give it a shot. Turns out, it is a great, cheap, 650 fill bag with some bragging rights. Pertex fabric is awesome in my opinion. I have a few Rab jackets made with Pertex and they wont quit. It comes with a cotton storage sac and a sil-nylon compression sac. In another review, the compressed size is compared to "not much bigger than a nalgene" Welll, not quite. It will compress as short as a nalgene, but a bit fatter. Very simple design with a draft tube and small pocket at the feet for a hot water bottle. The hood cinches in nice and tight for colder nights. Good amount of room inside, not too skinny, not too roomy (I'm 5'10'' 190). The fill and temp rating are accurate to 30, maybe even a bit more. It lofts up nice after being compressed. 650 isn't the best these days, but it will certainly do the job. If you're looking for one bag that can do most, this one isn't bad.

Nice Bag!

I will start with I used to have an REI down sleeping bag, the Mojave. I purchased the long version of the vamp and took it on a campout this past weekend. We were at 8500 feet and there was a foot of snow on the ground. We were sleeping in non heated cabins and this bag was more than warm enough. The temp outside was in the low 30's and I was toasty warm. I am a very warm sleeper so I purchased the 30 degree for me and the 15 for my wife, who is a cold sleeper. The long is really long, I am 5'11" and I still had a good foot or so past my feet. I can see the advantage of this because you can put tons of clothes, socks, and use the hot water bottle pocket, all without kicking everything with your feet. Zippers work good, the drawstrings are great, and it kept me warm, what else do you want? I would recommend this product. FYI: it comes with a storage sack and a compression sack. It packs down to the size of a football! Great bag

Warm and cozy

I have the 15 degree one. Compresses like a champ and so warm and comfortable. Use it when I camp in my hammock, it works like a charm. Warm all night and sleep like a baby

This bag says a max user height of 6'6"....

This bag says a max user height of 6'6". I assume this if for the long? What should I go with at 6'1"? Ideally the regular since the long is out of stock.

Best Answer Responded on

Correct. You should fit fine in the regular length.

Anyone have a compression pic vs a nalgene...

Anyone have a compression pic vs a nalgene or something?

Responded on

It's about the height of a nalgene, but a little bit fatter... not by much though

Responded on

This is a great bag that compresses down to not much bigger than a nalgene. About 8" to 9" long with about a 6" diamater. Great for 3 seasons. I used this in late summer at Steven's Lakes on the Idaho/Montana border and the first night was slightly cold at about 30 degrees overnight.

Great Bag

Got it on SAC for cheap. This is a good, warm bag, that compresses like crazy. Used it on a couple of nights right around 30 degrees and it was great. The only complaint I have is the hood cinch being on the left side, its a little bit tough to grab a hold of, but that shouldn't stop you from picking it up.

Does this bag come with a compression sack?...

Does this bag come with a compression sack? Or do I need to buy it separately?

Yes, this bag includes a compression sack.

Great deal

This bag is an awesome deal. It packs down small, is very light and keeps you very warm. Too warm for my last trip, but that's a good thing. My one gripe is I have the long and am 5'11" and it's pretty cozy. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone over 6".

What is the fill weight of the Vamp 30?

Does the Vamp 30 really have a draft collar as the specs say? Seems odd, considering that the more expensive Somnus bags cost quite a bit more more but do not include that feature. Thanks!
