Mummy Sleeping Bag 6~10 Degree Goose Down 600 fill - 85% down/15% feathers - $64 shipped on 09/18/2012 14:45:27 MDT Print View

I was browsing old down sleeping bags trying to find something to make a UQ out of and came across these.
Does anyone have any experience with these? They seem like a steal for having 12.3oz of 600 fill down in them.

No affiliation here... just want some input.

EDIT: I asked some questions to the seller and this is what they responded with:


"the down of this sleeping bag is sourced from the our biggest Down Base in China----Baoding.
there are numerous down production factories.
The brand of this sleeping bag is Aegismax, it is very wellknown in China.

It is 600 fill with 85% goose down / 15% goose feathers, and it have care lable, but it is in Chinese.
if you have any Chinese friend, you can ask them."

Seems like a pretty good deal for a cheap summer bag.


Be aware that this is 6-10 degrees Celsius, or around 40-50 degrees Fahrenheit. Still, 28 ounces will likely beat the weight of any bag of that price.

I missed that it was rated in celcius. I'm not sure about this bag. The old saying "You get what you pay for" keeps running through my head. I think I'll wait out for a cheap used bag. :D

Waterproof Polyester means that the shell may be as good as solid sheet of plastic - clammy and not breathable.

I would not buy this bag, unless i've seen enough tests and reports saying it breathes well.

I would say it'd make a great source for down (ala you looking for source material for an UQ) but doing the math--you can get 12oz of 850fp down from DIY Gear Supply for about $80 and similarly priced high fp down from other sources...

The down in that bag would cost $5.20 per ounce. ~750 fp goose down from Feathertex costs $2.44 per ounce.
