    As mentioned in another thread, I picked this bag up at Cabela's probably 10 years ago. Have only slept in it a few nights, two of them while warm weather hammock camping. For not having any insulation other than a double nylon top it keeps one warm above 60* with no clothes on. It packs to the size on a small cantaloupe. The label says weight is 1 pound 12 oz. but that is a lie...on my postage scale it reads 1 pound 4.6 oz. in the stuff sack.

    Not made any more but sometimes can be found used...usually like new. I use mine for a small emergency kit when I want something a little larger than one of the survival blankets...

    The red side is the top and has an airspace between it and the outer part of the bag....

    I just got something similar for Christmas: an Ozark Trail 40* bag that weighs 1.8lbs. Also for a small emergency kit and perhaps warm weather camping.

    Can you get into that space, fill it with leaves to create extra insulation?
