Comments about Slumberjack Slumberjack Latitude 20F Synthetic Sleeping Bag - Long Size - Left Zipper:

I used this bag within a matter of weeks after getting it. My plan was to test out some of my recent purchases - like my Eureka Grand Manan 9 and Eureka Mountain Pass 3XTE, Kelty Compression Stuff Sacks, GoLite Odyssey Internal Pack, and tent stakes from The North Face (see my reviews on those items as well).

So, I decided to go car camping for this test since I was going to be bringing a variety of different things to run through their paces. Well, it turned out to be a great time to test the boundaries of some of my gear.

The weekend had temps that ranged from the lower 20's to mid 30's F. Saturday night, I could see my breath the entire night in my tent. Outside temps were in the lower 20's. And, I woke up to the welcoming sound of sleet and snow. I was not using a tent heater. But, inside my Slumberjack Latittude 20F sleeping bag, I was as warm as toast

I had no problem shifting around inside the bag, as it has ample room (at least for me - I'd consider myself to have an average build). The only problem that I did find was that the zipper would sometimes snag in my haste to zip it up. But, the chance of snagging seemed to reduce when I took the time to zip it slowly and steadily, making certain that the tracks were taut. Seriously, other than that, the bag was awesome.

It's neither the lightest nor the smallest compressing. But, it's far from the heaviest or bulkiest in the same breath. And, in my opinion, this is a fabulous purchase for the price. The weight, compressed size, performance, and cost all combine to provide some of the biggest bang for the buck.

I plan to test my Slumberjack Latitude 0F sleeping bag as we enter the middle of winter and temps continue to drop. Look for my review of that in the near future.

Who knows, I might even get the opportunity to test my Slumberjack Latitude -20F sleeping bag. It could happen in GA. Right? ;^)

1/2 length zipper is awkard to get in and out of bag. Cannot open full length to cool off early and cover up later.
