Great value for the money

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Beechnutt from Talkeetna, AK on Thursday, November 6, 2014
The Alps Mountianeering 20 degrees Echo Lake Sleeping bag seems to be a great value for the money, however the construction of the bag is basic with no draft collar except around the hood and zipper. It also appears to have a waterproof coating on the exterior of the bag which makes your hands feel like there is a silicone residue on them when you touch it, especially when rolling or stuffing it. The baffels also are very basic and would be more efficient if they were individually sewn.
The bag does compress somewhat for stuffing and I was able to use a size medium Alps stuff sack perfectly with it. It is also an extremely light bag that will be great for backpacking and should be fine for summer use. If you are a minimalist, this bag will be somewhat bulky and will not stuff into your pack.
