Sleeping bag

Post by zoomtoob » Sat Jan 05, 2019 1:03 pm

I need a decent three-season motocamping mummy bag. Not for ridiculous money.. .

Any suggestions?

Something with enough room to rub one out but keep you warm when it snows at this year's 450.

I guess you have to define 'ridiculous money'

I really like my Big Agnes Ranger 15 sleeping bag. Kept me comfortable into the 30s and alive in the 20s (but not comfortable). You also have to buy the air type mattress that slips into the sleeve on the lower side of the bag. Goose down looses its insulation quality when it's compressed (IE: your body laying on it) so that's the reason for the air mattress.

I originally thought the whole thing was kind of narrow (mattress is only 20") but it's worked well.

And I seek refuge in aluminum and steel
It takes me out there for just a little while
And the years fall away with every mile

Under 100 bucks... I like down and use a mylar blankie in a hammock or thermarest on the ground. Poly filling is OK but bulky. Just don't need REI crazy pricing. Kelty?

I have a 40 degree kelty down bag that I do most of my camping with. Packs smaller than a football, but was about $130. Would be ok for wrist only movement, elbows are another story....depends on the guy I guess.
Spend a rainy sunday at campmor sometime.....you can try em all out (no rubbing), and sometimes get a deal on a "return". Hopefully not from a similarly enthused rubber.

My favorite bags are the ones from Woods products of Canada. I have two a lightweight one and a mid weight. they both pack up to about the size of a large loaf of bread and are very washable. I would suggest the mid for an all rounder. They are durable as I've had them in use for at least 10yrs now. Les Zimmermann
