High Peak was born in Germany back in 1983 and has since created a team of personnel specializing in the outdoor field that designs and supervises all products manufactured in the Far East. It is one of the leading outdoor manufacturing companies in Europe that is a huge asset to the world of camping. High Peaks new Alpinismo collection consists of lightweight backpacks, sleeping bags, tents and sleeping pads. High Peak is known for providing high quality products for the outdoors, but this is the first time they have presented a product that is for the outdoor enthusiast who needs lightweight gear. This is great for backpackers, hikers, and mountaineers when it comes to performance benefits. The Alpinismo Cirque sleeping bag performed beautifully while camping in the great outdoors of Utah. Although the winter has been lingering in certain areas of Utah, Moab is a good place to get away for a spring camping trip, and the Cirque was the perfect sleeping bag to use. The weather was a little cloudy with some rain and wind, and once nightfall hit, the temperature dropped quite a few degrees while the wind picked up. Usually I put an extra blanket inside my sleeping bag as well as one for the top of the sleeping bag to stay warm at night. This wasnt the case with the Alpinismo Cirque. The Cirque was extremely cozy and so inviting after a full day of hiking, biking, and climbing. It was just right for the temperature inside the tent. What made it more likeable was the fact that I could just bury my whole body, including my face, into the sleeping bag and not really hear the heavy winds that were threatening to blow my tent down at night. It wasnt until the tent was literally on my face and bearing down on me that I realized the wind was pretty horrendous. I was really that comfortable and oblivious to the outside storm.

I bought 2 bags for a camping trip. My husband and I both found them to be comfortable and warm. However, we weren't able to figure out how to zip 2 together (as the ad said). Even if we could have figured it out, our feet would have to be in separate places. The bag is great for one person, but didn't work the way we planned. Very good price when compared to LLBean sleeping bags.
Warm! All the stitching was secure and the zippers of a quality gauge. Comes with a bag for easy roll up and storage. A good quality bag for the price.

As I said even though is hasn't been put to the test I was able to stuff it into my pack's sleeping bag compartment. The only thing I may not like is the zipper, it looks as it might be weak but I can't in all fairness say that it is because I haven't had any problems.
