    Want to Try a JRB Sierra Sniveller

    Hey all, I am looking at getting a JRB Sierra Sniveller, but I'd like to try one before I commit. I am 5'11", 195 lbs. JRB says that I should get a long because I'm taller than 5'10", but my current sleeping bag is a long and I'm always stuffing extra clothes in the footbox. Does anyone in Utah or Chicago (I'm moving in June) have either a reg or a long that they'd be willing to lend me to try out?

    Can't do the loan, but I am 5'10" and use the regular length Sniveller. If I were an inch taller, I'm sure I could get by with it just fine, especially as a TQ or UQ in a hammock, where I find my sleeping position is more compact than it is when ground-dwelling.

    I agree that a Regular will work. I'm 6'1" and need a Long, but even with my size 13 feet I could use a Regular if I was 5'11". Now if you have size 15's or bigger...

    I have both and at 6' and 185# the long just has extra to wrap around my head when it gets really cold or I hear a scary noise. You'll be fine with the regular but it never hurts to have a little more in this case. If you get down south before you move shoot me a PM and you can check them both out.

    I have the Sierra Sniveller and I'm 5'11". It's the perfect length. Now if you are a had tucker and need the extra length you might consider the long, generally the regular will be just perfect.
