Bag Fine, Compression Sack Not So Fine

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Duke Nimoy from Colorado on Monday, August 27, 2012
The bag seemed fine, but I really didn't get a chance to test it. Spent a little more on this since it came with a compression sack, which lasted about 30 seconds when I was testing it right out of the box. Two of the 4 strap locations ripped as I was compressing the bag; poor materials and inadequate stitching were obvious culprits. Briefly tested the bag in my living room to check the quality; it seemed fine but didn't get much of a workout. Sent it back for a Kelty bag that was lighter and of better quality, and went to the local outdoor store for a compression sack.

Like I said, the bag seemed fine; just don't expect the compression sack to meet any expectations to justify the extra $20 of expense over other products available via STP.
