    I just picked this up as well. Thanks for the heads up.


    This code might still work: BRS3573C Not sure if they are one time use or not.

    List price: $225
    Sierra's price: $167.95
    with 35% off coupon: $109.17

    Description says has a full zip and no hood. I plan to use it as is for a top quilt. Later I may remove the zipper. Also might remove some extra material on the sides (description says it's 60" at the shoulders). That should take a couple of ounces off. (description says 25 ounces)

    Thats a nice bag! I picked up a Sierra Designs Ridge Runner 15 degree down bag, in long its just under 3 pounds, way lighter than my old winter bag haha. I paid $110 from backcountry.com with discount around the holidays. I have seen a few sea to summit bags locally as well on sale.

    There's just something about getting into a fresh change of clothes, jumping in the mummy sleeping bag and zipping it up tight around your head. If you've ever had a Marmot sleeping bag, you know exactly what I mean. And you can kick, roll, move all you want and there will be no drafts
    I agree. I have a Marmot Plasma 20 and its the most comfortable bag ever. I love the hood and the foot box is very roomy. I plan on sticking with it for a while. I wouldn't give up the hood on really cold nights. Makes a huge difference in staying warm and comfy. They aren't cheap. I paid $509 for mine but I'm still very happy with my purchase.

    I couldn't pass up the Sierra Design Ridgerunner 30* Long down bag for $120. 2lb5oz. That for the TQ and the Leighlo 30* 2/3 UQ my Wife got me for Christmas should keep me nice and toasty!! About the hood, I usually find a way to bunch it up and make use of it as a pillow. Why I always get a long bag though I am only 5"11"

    I grabbed the same one this year. I've had it down to 25* a few times now and been a little too warm!

    how did you take the zippers off? did you need to resew anything after?
    I also dont want to leave the zippers on due to possible damage

    I've been using my Montbell bag in my hammocks for years. I've never had any damage at all.

    I left my cabelas boundary waters bags in tact. I can use the bag in my HH as normal, as a TQ, and use it for camping in my popup...

    Options and variety is the spice of life... and I happen to be cheap too.

    The Thremarest Top Heaven is what I use. No zippers just elastic through the back. Plus it has a hood works for me. 20* down bag.
