Zipping two Montbell UL SS bags together on 04/26/2008 18:59:49 MDT Print View

Hello,

has anyone any experience with zipping together two Montbell UL Superstretch bags for a couple sleeping.

My girlfriend has a MB UL SS #2 and i have a WM Ultralite. We are / will been traveling and hiking for over a year and so far found that sleeping seperate get's a bit solitary although you are in a small tent.

I'am thinking of buying a MB UL SS # 3 to zip to the # 2 thinking that two stretch bag will create enough room two sleep two adults comfortably.

Has anyone tried this?

Thanks.

Yes, we have two 2008 versions and they zip together perfectly. One long, one regular size.

I have 2005 and 2006 models in down, and they do not zip together; the zip terminations are the non-separating type. However, the old synthetic UL SS had the separating zippers; maybe the 2008 down models do as well.
Kirk, are yours down or synthetic?

MontBell UL SS zippers on 04/27/2008 11:40:53 MDT Print View

I have a 2007 down UL SS #4. It has the separating zipper, different than the 05/06 mentioned above. I do not have a second to try this connection in question, but when I was asking questions before purchase, I was told that the only difference between the long and the regular was the long had the extended footbox. The long footbox has a cinch string if you want to tuck it back up into the bag, making it the same length as a regular. I have the long and can confirm the cinch string bit, but have not compared it to length of a regular sized bag. Mine is not a full zip, so if it were possible, then the area around the feet (in the long footbox) would not be shared.

Brett,
I notice you live in Japan. Could the different zippers be a difference in production/distribution across continents?
