Too large for backpacking

Reviewed by SK from Austin on Tuesday, October 20, 2015
This bag weighs roughly 2 kilos with the included stuff sack - i.e., 4.4 pounds. The manufacturer claims 1700 gms or 3 pounds 12 ounces.

Now the weight is only one issue. The volume it occupies is too much. I had to put it in the main compartment of my backpack, and it took up the entire space. I did not use a compression bag - I tried using a small compression sack I have, but felt that would tear if I tried stuffing this in.

In comparison the Suisse Sport bag, although seems to be less sturdy and there have been complaints about the zip breaking off, is much lighter, and packs small enough with the included compression sack into the sleeping bag compartment of my backpack.

Quality wise, the bag seems well made - but this is probably a good bag for car camping.
