    Closed: two bags for $25?

    Saw this deal today:

    http://www.dailysteals.com/

    not sure how good, lightweight, or compact they are..but two for $25 doesn't seem that bad.

    Anyone have any experience with them?

    Not sure how good they are ... not a lot of reviews I'm finding but here's the spec's I've found:

    Mummy-style design ;Ridge hood ;Zip Cover-Up on Top of Zip
    2-Way Zip ;Inside pocket ;Compression bag
    Temp Range: 21.2 F to 51.8 F
    Outer Lining: 100% Polyester :Filling: 100% Polyester :Thickness: Top/Bottom 150 g/m2: Inner Lining: 100% Polyester
    Size: 83"x30.5" :Weight: 1.2lbs :Packed Size: 12x7

    I seriously doubt that temperature range though

    A little research shows that WOOT! had that same pair of bags for sale at $25 almost a year ago.

    I too doubt that range. But...couldn't these be turned into under quilts? Or is that more work than it's worth?

    It's probably be a good summer bag though

    great price, but summer bag only... that temp range is bogus, it's about a 50 degree bag

    Maybe that's if you use both of them at the same time?

    Might not be a bad deal for my daughter's Girl Scout troop, that only camps (?) in heated cabins.

    One other thought - does anyone know of any organizations collecting sleeping bags/tents for the Pakistan flood/Haiti earthquake refugees? I'd order some and have them sent there if I knew where to have them shipped and that they'd be used.

    Nice idea about the disaster relief Warlock.

    As to use, I am told Haiti has lots of supplies that have been generously sent. The local government and lack of infrastructure to distribute supplies is the problem.
