Oh fuck you're killing it already with this reply. It is this sleeping bag. The only that I can tell is broken is the zipper part itself. Like the handle with the clamp and such (the thing you drag up and down).

The teeth of the bag seemed to be fine last I checked. I even have the little handle still, but it had gotten stuck, I pulled too hard (story of my life) and it just came off.

u/Yeffug · 4 pointsr/backpacking

Well that can be a long list... here goes though:

Water

Dehydrated food

Cooking utensils (I just bring a small pot/cup and a spork personally)

Stove

Sleeping bag

Tent (two pound, two person from Big 5)

550 paracord

2 tarps

Katadyn base camp filter

Sunshade for camping pad

Multi-tool

Compass

Map

Lighter & matches

Water purifying tablets

I'm sure I'm leaving a few things off, but those are several of the basics

The link on the site has it for $42.99.

I was looking for something lighter than I already had recently, mostly at REI, but then I saw several mentions of this Suisse Sport Adventurer Mummy Ultra-Compactable Sleeping Bag as a reasonably good, low-cost, not too heavy option for when it's not too cold. Comes with the left & right zippers so you can zip them together like /u/take_a_hike_pal mentioned, too. I have a pair now, just took one out for the first time this week, seems fine. More complaints in the reviews about the zippers than anything else, but I had no problem there yet. Seems like it might be a good fit for your needs, too. Just under three pounds/about 1.3 kg, whichever way you swing.

This ultra compact sleeping bag I can carry with me easily as I travel through Uganda. We just got told that our three month training will take place in multiple cities, so this would be very convenient - especially when I stay with my host family!

This is the pack I use.

This is the tent I use.

This is the sleeping bag I use.

Total weight for the sleeping bag and tent is 5.8 lbs. Total volume for both is 860 cubic inches. My pack has a sleeping bag compartment located at the bottom of the bag. If you look at the link I have posted in my OP there is a pic of my bag fully loaded - the tent is strapped to the outside just in front of the sleeping bag compartment. I also have my machete strapped there.

Enjoy your trip, in terms of your gear, this is my experience:

  • I like Kelty a lot, I have a Kelty Grand Mesa 2 (http://www.amazon.com/Kelty-Grand-Mesa-Tent-Person/dp/B004NWAPV0) and haven't had a problem in the 12 or so uses. It's light, and I haven't had any issues with not having a groundcloth.
  • I'd check out this sleeping bag on Amazon if you're just getting started - it's cheap, TINY - it also comes with a stuff-sack, and quite effective. I've been camping in under 30F weather and it's kept me warm (with long-johns and pulling myself fully into the bag). Link: http://www.amazon.com/Suisse-Sport-Adventurer-Ultra-Compactable-Sleeping/dp/B001TR7QZA/ref=pd_sbs_sg_1
  • Another note: Get a sleeping pad - it may seem like a small convenience, but it's important. I like mine, but I've seen a lot of people with these small yellow eggshell pads that fold up and my brother loves his.
  • In terms of the bag - I've played with smaller versions of them and they're... interesting. Depending on the model it's somewhat difficult to pack or get things into because of how the structure of the bag prevents you from reaching into it. Some brands are better than others. Also, if you want something that's in just that awkward spot, you have to unzip the whole bag to get to it (the zipper wraps around the bag).

    Edit: For the bag - make sure you have nice spots for placing water on the outside. I have an older bag where the outside pockets get extremely tight when loaded, and it's frustrating when you have to stop to get water.

    Best of luck!
u/nicodemus055 · 2 pointsr/bicycletouring

Based on your choices, it seems like you're concerned about budget. This is a better sleeping bag for $40 or $50 depending on zipper side (bummer- I bought 2 when they were at $30. Even at $50 it's better than most bags twice as expensive: compresses smallish, weighs in under 3 lbs, and has a better temperature range than what you link.)

Here's a decent actual tent for $100- Eureka Apex 2 weighs under 6 lbs. The Solitaire is under 3 lbs if you want a solo tent.

u/B0h1c4 · 2 pointsr/backpacking

This one works pretty well for me. It's about the size of a soccer ball and weighs about 3 pounds. Not the lightest thing in the world, but packs down pretty small and is good down to about 30 degrees.

I use this for underquilt, because it's flat rectangle when rolled out which makes it easier to go under/half-around a hammock.

That would be a good example of the type of sleeping bag you want in terms of dimensions and shape (not sure about temperature rating). You could get two of these and use as under and overquit, or that as underquilt and jungle blanket as overquilt (jungle seems to have less insulation). Like I said, you could try alternating them to see what works.

If you use it as an underquilt (same goes for jungle blanket), make sure you have it kind of snug (not too snug) hugging the hammock - leave some room between it and the sleeping bag but not too much room. You can bunch up extra loose parts and just tie it up with cordage to bunch it all up and snug. And then you should be able to use the jungle blanket as top quilt, if we're talking 60 degrees. Make sure you take all the setup out for a test drive before you go for the long haul you're doing.

Like I mentioned, those two kinds of bags should be fine for 60s F.

I myself am switching out from that set up so I can use an actual underquilt made to be an underquilt (so it's sown accordingly and the cords are at the right place, all just to take less time to setup), and then use a jungle blanket. But I camp in a bit chiller to even colder weather.

If you're really worried about less than 50 degrees, what I have now is that sleeping bag as underquilt, and then I have a much thicker mummy bag as overquilt, which makes up for the thin underquilt: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001TR7QZA/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It's not an ideal under/over combination one might say, but I just happened to have gotten those and didn't feel like returning, plus they worked.

Sorry for the novel.

u/rrunning · 1 pointr/CampingandHiking

Dude, you won't find a better bag for your money than this one. I've had mine since it was $25 on Amazon (three years ago now ?) and all my friends with their North Faces and Marmots aren't any more comfortable at least down to 30. (Haven't been out much lower than that.)

u/Catters · 1 pointr/backpacking

It's nothing fancy, but I absolutely LOVE this sleeping bag. It packs to about the size of a milk jug, and it's still pretty warm. I've taken it on countless trips, and it's still going strong.

u/reverse-humper · 1 pointr/CampingandHiking

I have this one and have had no problems with the couple times I've used it. Its about 3 pounds and only costs $40. If you have a good sleeping pad and where warm clothes to sleep, I'm sure you'd be fine in 30 degree weather.

u/wolfeybutt · 1 pointr/CampingGear

Planning on camping for 1-2 nights next weekend. In this photo is only my sleeping bag and a first aid kit in my new 46L. Sharing a tent with my bf, and will definitely need to bring a jacket and warm clothes but am possibly planning on putting my jacket in the outer pocket of the pack? I will strap my pad to the bottom.

I'd like to keep this size pack since it's carry-on size for when I travel too. Since I can't really afford another expensive bag at the moment I was considering two day shipping this guy:

Thoughts? Should I just suck it up and get a bigger pack or a smaller bag? My bf has a bigger pack I usually borrow so it's not really an emergency, but it would be nice to use my nice new one!


PS- I don't have any of the other items I'd be packing with me at the moment (at my parents house) which is why I ask instead of just trying!

u/pyramid_of_greatness · 1 pointr/Hammocks

Wanted to chime in and say, I'd love to see your plans, too, if you care to share with the rest of us! I thought picking up a grand trunk for $17 the other day was good (Amazon sale -- now $20), but you're putting me to shame! Paired with this compact and quite warm sleeping bag, you're off to the races.

u/maddiedog · 1 pointr/scooters

Sure, no problem!

My usual list...

On the rear rack, generally packed in a waterproof rollbag:

  • Hammock Tent -- Hennesey Expedition A-Sym

  • Quick-disconnect rope clips like this. Note that I'm light -- these won't hold you safely if you're over 200lbs..

  • Sleeping bag -- I use a Suisse Sport because it was light and cheap

  • mess kit, any collapsible aluminum one will do...


    I strap a waterproof backpack to the rollbag, containing:

  • change of clothes per day (tshirt, jeans, underwear, socks)

  • bodywash

  • deodorant

  • toothbrush

  • small towel (a sham-wow type of towel works really well)

  • food (instant noodles, crackers, kippers, trail mix, energy bars, etc... )

  • dog's leash, poobags, kibble, dog hoodie (in case she gets cold)

  • kindle (for reading things when I get settled for the night)


    Under the seat,

  • hoodie

  • riding jacket (if not wearing)

  • riding gloves (if not wearing)

  • rain suit (if not wearing)

  • extra water

  • any miscellaneous that didn't fit elsewhere...


    On the tunnel bag:

  • dog harness

  • dog (NOTE: dog is optional, but recommended)


    In the tunnel bag:

  • Screwdriver

  • 2x adjustable wrenches

  • vice grip

  • tire patch kit

  • tire iron

  • knife

  • backpacking stove

  • gas for above

  • duct tape

  • LED flashlight

  • small first aid kit w/ insect repellent

  • camelbak bladder for drinking


    I always bring more than that, but that's my bare minimum. On longer trips or trips that go through the night, I'll pack a gas can in case I have to go a couple of hundred miles between fill-ups.

    EDIT: OH GOD FORMATTING HOW DO I REDDIT WHAT IS THIS I DONT EVEN
u/I_COULD_say · 0 pointsr/WildernessBackpacking

IDK What sort of weather you'll be camping/hiking in, but this is a pretty basic list of gear that I would take if I were on a budget:

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006JYHI24/?tag=ultrastuff-20

http://www.amazon.com/Suisse-Sport-Adventurer-Ultra-Compactable-Sleeping/dp/B001TR7QZA/ref=sr_1_3?m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1408072994&sr=1-3&keywords=ultralight

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FB7XYXM/?tag=ultrastuff-20

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002COCF3M/?tag=ultrastuff-20

That's a bag, tarp, hammock and sleeping bag. They all have great ratings and should get you through just about anything.

Me, personally, I carry my hammock, a wool blanket and my tarp from http://www.bushcraftoutfitters.com/ ( http://www.bushcraftoutfitters.com/Coyote-Tarp-10x10-tarp-10x10-coyote.htm ) in my army surplus bag. I also carry my stainless steel pot and cup, cordage, zip ties, leather gloves, folding saw, axe and knife with me when I'm out in the woods. I have a "space blanket" too.

My pack could be lighter for sure, but everything I have serves a purpose.

Whenever you decided you want to get into campinp/hiking/bushcraft/whatever, decided what you really need/want to have with you. Don't just jam random "camping" supplies in your bag. Take your time, research and pack carefully. Your back will thank you.
