Mountain Hardwear 32°F Mtn Speed Sleeping Bag - 850 Fill Power, Mummy
Closeouts. Mountain Hardwear's 32°F Mtn Speed sleeping bag is designed to be an emergency bag for hardcore alpinists, yet any and all minimalist adventurers will appreciate its warmth and unbelievably light weight -- just under a pound! It's all courtesy of the ultra-light Ghost Whisperer fabric and water-resistant Q.Shield® Down, cut in a slim fit with a half-length zipper to save weight.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by rwb from Washington on Thursday, September 15, 2016Almost unbelievably light and small. Packs up as small as a down jacket- can be crammed into a stuff sack 4x8 inches. comfortable at freezing temperatures if used in combination with a light down jacket or fleece, which you will have anyway for wear in camp.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Sonny D from Utah on Wednesday, May 18, 2016Fits more snug than the mountain hardwear ratio. If you are crazy enough, they can be used together (speed inside the ratio) for winter camping.
It is just a little long but fits me just fine around the waist. 5'8" 180.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Skiman from Colorado on Monday, May 16, 2016Remember that it's a 32F bag, and it will serve you well. Perfect bag for springtime in Utah to keep weight and volume down. A little snug as should be expected, and the zipper is prone to snag if you don't pay attention to keeping the separation pressure down while operating. Keeps dry and has a comfortable fabric. I recommend you get a larger waterproof stuff sack if you don't want to spend a long time trying to get it into the included sack.
Reviewed by Miniaussie from WA on Friday, April 29, 2016First, I am 69 and sleep a little cold. Second, do not trust the 32 comfort rating in the description, go for the EN rating of 40/32/8. Spent one night under a tarp on NeoTherm (5.2r), mid long johns, down puffy, hat and clean socks. Temperature unknown, but forecast for 40f, 1/2" ice in cook pot in morning, so below freezing. Miserable night. Quite adequate above 45f. Also works well for longer variable weather/elevation trips when combined with a mid weight bag.
Quality fabric and workmanship. Snug fit combined with the snagging zipper makes this bag uncomfortable for claustrophobics. The MSRP is ridiculous. STP makes it more reasonable.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Angus from Minnesota on Monday, February 29, 2016Extremely satisfied with this bag. Very lightweight and packs down small. An ultra-light backpacker / fast packer's dream.
Only used it one night so far. 32 degrees was the low. I slept outside of a tent / bivy in a three sided trail shelter with a 5/8" closed cell foam pad and blue tarp below me and I stayed night and warm with only merino wool lightweight base layers and a merino wool skull cap on. The night was very wet and windy. Occasional rain. No condensation in the bag. It appeared to breathe well.
Appears to be a snug fit. If you are a large framed individual, this may to too snug, but it does seam to stretch somewhat. I am 5'-6" x 145 lbs and had plenty of room.
Careful with the zipper. VERY prone to getting stuck on the draft tube material.
