|Make and Model:||Sierra Designs Northernlite Long|
|Temperature Rating:||0 degrees|
|Weight of Bag:||4 lbs, 4 oz.|
|Review:||This bag, while not heavy for a synthetic 0 degree bag, is a bit heavy for my taste. That small criticism aside, the bag has been an excellent one, and certainly keeps me warm at the rated temperature. The bag has plenty of insulation in the footbox; the hood could use a bit more, and the draft collar is a bit undernourished as well. The material chosen for the lining feels great!|
Like any synthetic bag with a few years under its belt, this bag has, over time, lost a small percentage of its insulating ability. It is the quality workmanship of this bag that encouraged me to buy a tent from the same manufacturer. I have been happy with both products.
