  • Summary: 32°F? I don't think so. But mind you, 32°F is the lower limit of any 3-season bag that is advertised as a 30°F bag. I have slept comfortably in this bag in temperatures anywhere from 40°F to 60°F. Anything warmer than that, I either sleep on top of the bag or with it halfway zipped down.
  • Pros: Comfy up to lower limit, Roomy, Offers versatility in different temperature ranges
  • Cons: Heavy, Bad sizing, Large pack size

  • Excerpt: Got 2 of them. One for each son. They don't pack small by any means, but they are warm and durable. Both boys use them year round in canvas and nylon tents. We always hang them, never have washed them — never any problems. Having a zipper on both sides is a nice touch in warmer weather.

  • Excerpt: These are my initial thoughts after one use so take it with a grain of salt. I will attempt to update this after further use. Also, I have the yellow version with a stripe symmetrically down each side with "Marmot" in the middle.

  • Excerpt: Fine but not impressed. I took good care of this bag, handled it nicely, never stored it compressed, fluffed it in the dryer, etc. And yet by the third season the bag was so cold that it was virtually useless in temps in the 40s without a really heavy fleece liner.

  • Excerpt: Cozy sleeping bag. I have not used this bag at its suggested temperature rating but I was nice and cozy using this in lower 40 degree temps on a fall camping trip. In colder temps, it works best with a sleeping pad as long as you are, otherwise you get the dreaded cold feet.

  • Excerpt: I manage an outdoor gear rental center and I'm constantly searching for gear that is durable, cheap, and compact. The Trestles 30 is currently my favorite sleeping bag, not only because it reflects those three traits, but also because it has more loft than most of my cold weather bags rated 10 - 20...

Just got this bag and first impressions are very good.

  • Excerpt: Just got this bag and first impressions are very good. I need a lightweight synthetic bag for kayack camping, usually in Mo and it gets very humid at times. I think it will be plenty warm enough for three-season use. Very roomy and comfortable.
