Great for Cold Weather, Bad for Backpacking

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Ted the Adventurer from Kentucky on Tuesday, October 4, 2016
I have come to appreciate the ALPS brand for generally quality products with a lower price tag, and that is also what I got out of this mummy bag. The synthetic fiber provides enough warmth, especially when paired with a quality mat. This was a recent purchase, and the nights haven't gotten down to 20 degrees yet, so this review is based on more 40 degree weather. This bag would be great if you are driving out to a camping spot and pitching a tent, but if you are planning on backpacking any distance, I would not recommend this bag. It's compression size and weight is just not compatible with backpacking. Compressed, this bag takes up half of my backpack. I will save this bag for future group camping, but for backpacking, I will need to spend the money on a down bag.
