Re: over top
With the MontBell bags the stretch system will have the bag close to your body whether or not you're wearing extra insulation. Plus, if you use VBL clothing, the insulation won't be gettin...

Re: WM Summerlite vs. Montbell Super Stretch Down Hugger #3

Re: little trick

Re: Re: Stephenson's Warmlite Sleeping Bags?

Re: Ah sorry
Okay, I get your point now. Yes, we agree that softshells based on membranes inside the garment are close to hardshells in performance. Woven softshells that use water-repellent fabric work muc...

Montbell Super Stretch Down Hugger #3
I've had my 30F #3 bag down to 12F on a winter camping trip, wearing a mid-weight synthetic parka and pants, under a tarp and bivy combination. I was comfortable up to the 12F temps, although I w...
