Review:

I had never heard of Archer Outdoor Gear until seeing this bag at the top of the “new” section in Amazon Camping. The temperature rating of -22 degrees Fahrenheit and the excellent reviews cores (4.3 from 4 reviews) caught my eye.

This apparently is a new company and they seem to only sell on Amazon (that is the impression their poorly done website gives). They are located in the US (Fort Myers, Florida).

The Archer Ultra-Light Duck Down Winter Sleeping Bag seems to be of fairly high quality. It is actually a bit heavier than advertised, at around 4.6 pounds. The down filling can clump up a bit, but the bag does seem to be well insulated.

The construction seems to be of high quality and they did use lightweight materials. It might have been nice to have the bag separated into more compartments to prevent clumping, and the foot area could use reinforcement.

The bag does pack up into the stuff sack very tight. It can be a problem to pack it, but once packed it doesn’t take up much space (9 x 14 inches).

Overall, I think this is a solid first sleeping bag from Archer Outdoor Gear. It might not be as high quality or well designed as some of the more expensive brands, but you also get that price savings.

If you want to support a new company, you might consider the Archer Ultra-Light Duck Down Winter Sleeping Bag. This bag is probably a bit heavy for backpacking use.
