Opinions on the Marmot Arroyo? on 07/29/2010 15:34:29 MDT Print View

Does anyone own this bag that can give an opinion on it? My friend just got a Pinnacle, so he's offering his Arroyo to me for $140, and I am in need of a sleeping bag right now that is 20-30 degrees and around that price. I really like that it has 800 fill, but a little worried about the accuracy of the temp rating. This bag will only be used for my trips from april-october.

Thanks

I have this bag - it's great for me.

I'm in the UK, so I really need a good 20-30 degree bag and this is it for me.

Mine is a few years old, it's black and turquoise, the tag describes it as 775 fill, and on my scales it weighs 850 grams. I don't think it has leaked at all.

The first few times the girlfriend camped with me, she used it, as it was much warmer then her bag, and she said it felt quite luxurious!!

I find some bags sweaty, but not this one - packs down really small, and when not in use it lies on the spare bed, and lofts nicely.

Great fit, I'm 6'/ 200lbs. I pair it with a 3 Oz light blue CCF mat but may get a neo air or similar at some point.

Alright thanks guys, hopefully I can still convince him to sell it to me, looks like a good bag.

I consider myself an average sleeper, and have taken mine down to 10 degrees F while wearing all of my insulation layers (one of the coldest nights of my life). Normally, though, wearing just a base layer, I consider it to be a 35-40 degree bag.
