    It is pretty awesome. I don't understand why it is warm enough on the bottom. They are 550 fp down. That won't compress near as much as 900 fp I guess, but it still compresses a good bit. Makes me wonder why my sleeping bags- even poorly compressing synthetic- have not worked for bottom warmth? I mean- Ok my Cat's Meow 20F Polarguard has worked, but not enough. So what is the deal with these?

    But hey, if it worked, it worked. I may be getting some of these.

    What is the weight of a pair? And the loft? Just curious.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Maybe they work better because they are tighter around your body than a bag would be.
    I am going out this Saturday and do some more test.... I will post my findings.

    I'm wondering if you're wearing them next to your skin (and how it feels) or with a baselayer.

    You said that you didn't use an underquilt. Did you use a top quilt?


    Peace,

    I'm testing the SelkBag Light right now (field report due the first of January). I think wearable sleeping bags, like the Selk, or even down pants/top combo is a great solution for hammock camping for ease of entry/exit. It's something to get used to, however. I'm finding I like to snuggle up in a quilt, and even though I feel warm, something feels missing to have nothing but what I'm wearing.

    For the curious, the SelkBag's have synthetic insulation. The Light version is rated at 40F. It is heavy and bulky (read: great for base camps, poor for lightweight backpacking). I wish they were down!

    Any condensation problems?

    Also must smell like a real peach after about 3 or 4 nights.

    One of the reviews on Cabelas said the pants weigh 9 oz. and my daughter sent me a 50.00 gift card for my birthday other day of Cabelas,,now I know what I am going to use that on..as I want a pair of the Reg. Large ones on sale at 48.74. Machine washable as well..for that kind of money I really think its a decient buy to use, as I will also use them hunting and early spring fishing when the ice goes out.
