Suisse Sport AlpineThis review details the Suisse Sport Alpine Adult Mummy Double Layer Sleeping Bag 33 x 24 x 84 inches , Assorted Dark Brown (ad).

Description:

Stay extra-warm on high-altitude camping trips with the Suisse Sport Alpine double-layer sleeping bag (ad).

The Alpine is equipped with 3 pounds of Hollowblend MicroTekk Z1 fill, a cozy synthetic insulation that keeps you warm at temperatures as low as 5 degrees F. Comfort range is from 5-40 degrees depending on other variables such as wind, no tent, light clothing and no ground cover. The fill makes this bag a great choice for chilly fall or winter camping, or for alpine hiking trips when you’re preparing an ascent. The bag also includes a double-layer offset quilt construction that keeps the fill from bunching up, eliminating cold spots as you sleep. And to make sure the wind doesn’t sneak in while you sleep, Suisse Sport added a drawstring hood and draft tube.

Other features include a soft polyester lining for added comfort, Comes with a handy light compression sack for transport for ultra compact backpacking you will need a heavy compression sack. The Alpine Mummy Style Sleeping bag measures 84 by 24 by 33 inches (W x H x D) idea for most people up to 6’2” tall and weighs 5 pounds fully packed and is machine washable.

Specs:

  • 100% Polyester
  • Imported
  • Great cold weather sleeping bag rated to +5 F lowest, ideal comfort range 20-40 degrees
  • 3 pounds of Hollowblend MicroTekk Z1 synthetic fill
  • Double-layer offset quilt construction eliminates cold spots
  • Drawstring hood and draft tube; soft polyester lining
  • Measures 84 x 24 x 33 inches (W x H x D); weighs 5 pounds
  • Comes with a handy light compression sack for transport

Pros:

At 84 inches long (or seven feet long), it can fit tall people. Sure, it says it fits people up to 6 foot 2 inches, but I think taller people will fit just fine.

The bag is machine washable, which makes for easy cleaning.

Comfortable materials and good design eliminates cold spots and keeps you warm down to about twenty degrees. That five degree rating means it will keep you alive at five degrees and warmer.

Very affordable at under $40 (typically).

Cons:

At slightly under 5 pounds, this bag is a bit heavy for a hiking or backpacking bag but you could use it for that provided you don’t mind a few extra pounds. Some people have said the bag only weighs 3.25 pounds, but the description says five. The bag does compress down, which makes it pretty easy to travel with and it has a compression sack.

Please note that this bag might be a bit on the warm side if you are using it for summer camping, or even in late spring or early fall.

Overall:

This would be a great bag for a first timer or anyone that doesn’t want to spend tons of cash on a premium sleeping bag. It has a low temperature rating, packs up tight, is comfortable to sleep in, is easy to clean, and it’s cheap! There are better bags out there, but not at this price range.

I recommend the Suisse Sport Alpine Adult Mummy Double Layer Sleeping Bag (ad).
