Findings: Slumberjack 20°F Ultimate Sleeping Bag – This bag was an item I bought from Sierra Trading Post, because it was such a screaming deal. I wanted a two pound bag, something like the Marmot Neverwinter, but for 37 dollars, I figured I could deal with the extra pound. So I did, and I am pleased with the bag. Slumberjack has been a part of my camping gear since 1990, and it is good to see that they’re incorporating new developments into their design. The foot box was a pleasant increase in room, but the low temperatures meant I had to close it midway through the night. The draft collar works excellently, allowing no cold air down the bag. The anti-snag zipper is an oxymoron, since I don’t think any such thing exists. The compressible nature of sleeping bags means nylon will inevitably get caught in your zipper. The bag performed like a champ in the low 40s high 30s of Seward nights in May, comfortable, roomy enough to roll over in, and stuffable. This fits perfectly in the Mountain Hardwear Super Scrambler with the included stuff/compression sack.
