This is a review of the Suisse Sport Everest sleeping bag.
Stay extra-warm on high-altitude camping trips with the Suisse Sport Everest double-layer sleeping bag. The Everest is equipped with 3.5 pounds of Hollowblend MicroTekk Z1 fill, a cozy synthetic insulation that keeps you warm at temperatures as low as 0 degrees F. 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 full chest baffle, a drawstring hood, and a draft tube.
Other features include a long-lasting polyester exterior and liner, a full-length self-repairing dual slide zipper, an exterior zippered utility pocket, and a stuff sack. The Everest sleeping bag measures 84 by 24 by 33 inches (W x H x D) and weighs 4.85 pounds.

The Suisse Sport Everest sleeping bag is made in China which partially explains the cheap price. These cheaper bags aren’t really bad quality, in fact, they are quite good and the low price makes them good value.
The Suisse Sport Everest has the same problem that most of the other Suisse Sport bags have, it is just too heavy for backpacking or hiking use. At 4.85 pounds, it is just way to heavy to use for backpacking. It could still work if you are going car camping in the winter. The one exception to this rule is the 30 degree rated Suisse Sport Adventurer, which is just 3.5 pounds.
I think this bag is pretty comfortable. The 0 degree rating is more comfortable around 30 degrees. This is a pretty warm and padded bag. However, that also means it doesn’t pack very compactly.
The stitching and construction on the bag seems to be pretty good. I would imagine this would last a while if you took care of it.
I’m not really sure who this would be a good bag for. I guess car campers that want a huge bag for winter use and want to pay as little as possible? I really cannot recommend the Suisse Sport Everest, but there really isn’t anything wrong with it. It is just a super cheap bag and actually is surprisingly good considering the low price.
