Nunatak Alpinist Sleeping Bag Info? on 11/14/2006 20:50:32 MST Print View

I would like to know if any readers have a Nunatak Alpinist sleeping bag. The arc does not appeal to me since I can be a thrasher. I either sleep on my side or in a "3/4 position" where my lower body is flat and the upper is on the side. I also tend to roll with the bag in place so the face opening over the face is nice.

Does anyone have experience with this (or the lighter weight) version?

My wife says I sleep like a rotisserie, constantly rotating.

I found that I sleep better in my AA because in a mummy bag I'm more confined. Also, with the straps around the bottom of the pad I'm less likely when I rotate to take parts of the bag with me, so I'm not twisted up in the bag as much.

I use my AA with a hooded skaha, so the face opening follows me as I thrash around.

All in all, I prefer it to a mummy because I thrash around.
