MontBell U.L. Super Spiral Down Hugger #5 Sleeping Bag 2103
Excellent super light sleeping bag
The sleeping bag is exactly what I needed for summer backpacking. The elastic design really works good for someone with very wide shoulders. While I have not tested it in colder conditions, it appears to have plenty of loft to be sufficient down into the 40°'s. Two things should be noted however. 1) The bottom has sewn through down compartments (no baffles). The top and hood are fully baffled. Should be OK for its designed application. 2) The hood draw string is not elastic that would make it more comfortable. Therefore I am going to replace it with a fine sized shock cord.
