It doesn't matter how often you do it, camping away from your warm, soft bed isn't ideal—especially when the temperatures are low and the path there is arduous. The Mountain Hardwear Pinole Sleeping Bag offers a lightweight way to sleep a little easier on those cold and often wet backcountry nights because it uses a soft, compressible synthetic insulation that mimics the springlike loft of down. These three-dimensional fibers trap warm air effectively, pack down small and light, yet still retain loft when wet. The mummy shape optimizes warmth, while the offset quilt construction eliminates the cold posts of sewn-through seams.
It's easy to snuggle down for a cozy night in the Pinole Sleeping Bag because it's cut slightly wide for extra wiggle room when you're having trouble falling asleep, and the wide toebox is optimized for resting your feet naturally without sacrificing insulation. Face gaskets form a warm, soft seal around you face when you're cinching the hood down, and a full-length insulated draft tube keeps out any unwanted cold air during the night.

Stuff sack too small
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Like the sleeping bag. Purchased a long left zip for my dad for an upcoming cross-country camping trip where we will need to conserve space packing.. Was glad to see the size of the stuff sack when I pulled it out of the box. Not glad to find that no matter which way I tried to contort the sleeping bag, the sack is simply too small! Wondered if it was a mistake but it does match the size listing in the specs. Specs also say it comes with a regular storage sack, but it does not. Guess I will have to buy a bigger stuff sack, which is disappointing to spend more.
Like the other person who asked - this stuff sack is actually too small for the product! Do not understand how that happened...Would recommend Mountain Hardware take another look at that. My question is about what size stuff sack to purchase so that the Long length bag fits well but still conserves as much space as possible. Plan to pack this sleeping bag in a suitcase to travel cross country, so looking for a sack that will actually fit the bag but still be small and compressed. Any suggestions?
Hi Kayla, let me give you a few examples of products to look at! Outdoor Research UltraLight Compression Sack (Item # ODR1072) in a 15L sack, ALPS Mountaineering Compression Sack (Item # ALM000I) in a size Medium, Granite Gear Air Compressor Sack (Item # GRG3291) in a size 23L. All of these would be great compression sacks that are at least a few inches bigger then the stuff sack size it comes with.
The stuff sack that comes with this bag is super tight. My kids really struggle getting their bag stowed. Is there a recommended size that might be better suited? 20-21 L?
Hey there Rich!
If they are having trouble stuffing this sleeping bag in their stuff sack you could try a stuff sack larger in volume! You would want to get something larger than 15L
