    Frog sac temp rating

    Does anyone remember what the temp rating for the frog sac is?

    Dutch,

    Happy Camper alerted me to your inquiry. Rated to 45F per BPL:
    <http://www.backpackinglight.com/cgi-bin/backpackinglight/speer_hammocks_frog_sac_sleeping_bag_review.html>

    I have been using mine as a T.Q. and can vouch for the rating. Doubled over, probably to freezing. Now that I have a REAL T.Q. (Speer), I guess I could part with it if you are interested...? Sell or Trade.

    If you want to try it, let me know where to send it, OK?
    Happy Trails,
    J.D.

    I never drink water. I'm afraid it will become habit-forming.

    We could trade, but that wouldn't help either of us since I really don't need mine either. I'm thinking of loaning it out for mahha.

    Skydog, what price are you thinking of parting with it at? I have always been curious about it.

    Thanks,

    ...hehehe!

    I will be at MAHHA and have mine with me; so, if someone wants to test/play with it....?

    I have forgotten, are you going too?

    Well, I wasn't thinking about selling it until Dutch posted. Then <while responding> it occurred to me that I haven't been using it. Since it is no longer manufactured, does it have extra historical/sentimental value?

    Seriously, I don't know what to ask...? C'mon, YOU must have something to trade - right?

    It's in great shape! No rips, tears, patches, etc. Always stored "fluffed" up.

    Will you be at MAHHA...?
    Happy Trails,

    I will be going. I also never use my frog sac and wondered about the value of it. I think since it isn't being manufactured anymore it should be worth more....say a OES spinn tarp.

    I've got a mint condition one that I would trade for something like an 2/3 underquilt or an original sewn through peapod. Don't have the original stuff sack...doesn't matter anyway...you need a hydraulic press to get it back in there! Also have a origional JRB 8x8 tarp in "hi-vis" green with which to sweeten the deal.
    Gentle raindrops and mighty oceans...neither can exist without the other.
    Time heals all wounds...but it usually leaves a pretty big scar.

    How about my sewnthrough peapod for your JRB 2/3 vest quilt, and your frogsac and your tarp. I know what you mean aobut the stuff sack. I swear all of Speer's stuff sacks are about half the size needed. There is no way you fit a frog sac.

    Now *that's* a collectors item.

    I keep hoping they will make another appearance in JRB's lineup.
