This Emarth 40 Degree Sleeping Bag comes in a sack that is a casing. It is very small and compact, easy to carry and weighs very little. This is PERFECT for hiking, camping, or any Overnight trip where you need to travel lightweight. I bought this for my son who does a lot of hiking and overnight kayaking trips. To open the casing all you have to do is loosen the 3 straps and slip the top off. You will then open it open and take out the bag.
This is a Duck Down filling bag and it is ideal for 3 seasons. The most comfortable temperatures are going to be 23 F – 59 F with the limit being 14 F. I must admit. First impression: I was not impressed. When I saw the listing for a down filled sleeping bag I thought I would be getting this big fluffy bag but when I opened it I saw this very streamline long bag. I gave it a chance anyway.
My husband keeps our house a good 60 to 65 degrees at night so I decided to give it a try. I was very surprised at how warm I stayed all night. I woke up toasty and warm!! I have to say that I am short and I have a lot of room left at the bottom. I measured this to be 6 ft 8 ” inches and the head area to be 11″ inches.
This is Polyester and Nylon so it is not the most comfortable to sleep in but to be totally honest, if I am hiking or camping it’s not like I’m getting in my jammies or anything. I think for the purpose it was made for it is SPOT ON!! The dual zippers work break and I had no troubles getting in and out. I love the fact that there is extra material for putting your head on so that it isn’t on the ground.
As for getting it back in the bag. I had no problems doing that. What I did was folded it long ways in half and then rolled it as tight as I could and it fit perfectly back into the bag. I think my son is going to like it a lot. I received this Emarth Sleeping Bag in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.
