Hard to beat value - too soon to judge long term quality

Verified Buyer Reviewed by SpudChucker from Northern Maine on Wednesday, October 1, 2014
We had a late September backpacking trip planned and two weeks before the departure date, local temperatures dropped to 22 degrees. Knowing that our "summer" bags were rated at 20 degrees when new gave little comfort as they are both more than 15 years old. We scrambled to find new bags. Although we looked at many others, it seemed like a no brainer to basically buy two for the price of one of the other, "trendier" bags. I know, I know - the bags we bought weigh 1/2 lb. more than the others but I'm pretty frugal.
Anyhow, we bought two and used them on our trip (five nights, lowest temperature we encountered was 40 degrees - Murphy's Law). Very good loft, zipper quality is OK. Plenty of room. Compression stuff sacks are a necessity if you're using an internal frame pack. I wish the bags were mateable but they are not.
