Summary: Needed to buy my son some camping gear for Scouts and decided to splurge on a new bag for myself. Bought the Crescent Lake Long since I like extra room in my bag given my 250lb 6' frame. First, use was during a winter camping trip in the Los Padres. Overnight temps got down to the teens. Bag felt warm and comfortable and the easy drawstring hood came in handy. Both nights slept very warm and second morning woke up with frost around the hood so I know it was cold.

Summary: I was very pleased with this purchase. The design of the bag is great. I am about 6'0" 185, and I *hate* the constriction of mummy bags. But I slept as comfortably in this bag as in any bag I've slept in. The zipper and hood design were good and I was very warm in this bag nights in the mid 30s, which indicates to me that it's fairly true to its rating, unlike some other brands.

Summary: I needed a second mummy bag so I decided on the ALPS Crescent Lake seeing I purchased my Silver Springs from them three years ago and I know from experience that ALPS Mountaineering's products are very good. The Weather Channel was predicting a cold front was going to push through Saturday night and drop the nighttime temps down to the low thirties so I decided to put my Crescent Lake to the test. The first thing I did was see how the fit was.
