We purchased the -25 bag with nylon on the outside. Definitely a car camping bag based on size and weight. I was initially concerned about keeping warm because when I held up the bag to light, you can see the light thru the bag! Females sleep colder than men but it kept me very warm on a 25 degree nite (wearing thin long johns under sweats). Looking forward to testing it in even colder weather. Like that these bags are so roomy, wide and long. My hubby is 6' and this bag is plenty long, comes up to his neck with no cramped feet and he still has lots of room in top of the hood (which is well padded). The description says the interior is flannel but it's not, it's just thin cotton material with a plaid print made to look like flannel and it's not all that soft, but it’s a lot warmer than a nylon interior. The bags compact down to a decent size when using the cover and end compression straps but larger than most higher temp rated bags. I found it to be a bit of a struggle to put the bag back into the cover as the bags puff up quite a bit when opened. I would call the zipper baffles almost non-existent compared to my +30 degree bag. They are very narrow with hardly any insulation in them. That said I didn't feel any drafts or cold air coming in thru the zipper. Important Note: These bags are configured differently than most other rectangular sleeping bags as the zipper is on just one side and NOT the bottom so they don't open up fully flat. That means you can't use them as a quilt/blanket. To make 2 singles into a double bag; you have to connect 2 bags together as side by side singles. But to do that you need one bag with a right zipper AND one bag with a left zipper since the hoods are not removable. The problem is I've yet to find any website that tells you what side zipper they offer or gives you a choice of right or left zipper when ordering. And because of the odd double configuration, once made, the connection zipper is down the middle of the new double bag unless you rotate the bags. So if you want to make a double bag from 2 singles or open one up to use as a blanket, this is not the bag for you. We did not purchase the bags for this purpose so over all we are happy with these bags, especially for their generous size and temp rating at this price point. We do recommend the bags.
Got this sleeping bag for my hubby. Just got it today. Opened the package and checked for flaws and unsewn sections. Neither of the two were found,GREAT! Oversized- yes; Heavy Duty zipper- I think so; Oversized chest and zipper baffles- yes; Rip stop nylon- not really, very thin; lining of sleeping bag is not flannel, it's the thin rip- stop nylon as used on the shell of the sleeping bag; Dual drawstrings- no; right and left zippers to zipp bags together- yes; zipper guard to prevent zipper snag- yes; includes thin rip stop nylon duffle bag with a thin canvas top and four pull ribbons. I love the feel of the sleeping bags softness but I wouldn't order it again. I hope it stands up to the ultimate challenge of my hubby😊. Thank you Hope this info is useful!¡!!
I was considering the other famouns handlebar guantlets but at $70.00 a pair I was hesitant. Then I saw these and thought "what the heck the price is right." When they arrived I was a bit dubious. They seemed lightweight. The outer surface is like a ballistic nylon and the inside is lined with polorfleece. I had to make a hole to attache my mirrors in each of them. The whole setup went on pretty easy. I have been using them since the weather turned cooler here in Seattle. Rain or shine my hands stay dry and toasty. I am wearing summer weight leather gloves when the temperatures are in the 40's and I can't believe how warm my hands are. If you ride in the cold you should give these a try.
