Over the past month or so, the #1 selling sleeping bag on Amazon has been the Suisse Sport Adventurer Mummy Ultra-Compactable Sleeping Bag (ad). As this is the case, we thought a review might be helpful for our readers.
The Suisse Sport Adventurer Mummy Ultra-Compactable Sleeping Bag (ad) is a double layered, compression bag. It only comes in the light blue and a little yellow colors scheme shown above (the bottom is dark grey/black). The hood has a draw string which is nice for keeping you warm and snug at night. The bag comes in both left and right hand models, to allow for people to zip themselves in easier. The bag is rated for 30 degrees Fahrenheit, which means it really is good for Spring, Summer, and Fall. It comes with a compression stuff sack for easy storage. The bag is roughly 84 inches by 29 inches. It packs down to 12 x 7 x 7 inches in the storage sack. The bag weight, when packed, is about 3.5 pounds.
Why this bag is awesome:
I’m really impressed with this bag considering the price. You really would have to spend double this amount to get something comparable, which no doubt explains why it is currently so popular. It is of high quality and will take a beating, it’s made of fairly lightweight materials so it would be good for backpacking or hiking, it packs up well, nice and tight, can fit tall people, and is rated for a good temperature (this will work for everything over 30 degrees Farhenheit).
What could be better:
For the price and quality of this bag, it is difficult to really say anything bad about it. If you want something super-lightweight, or something for cold nights, you will need to get something else and no doubt pay a lot more. This is not a premium, top-of-the-line bag, but it is comparable to some better models and has an amazing price.
