This is a durable, rugged SHTF sleeping bag.  It will keep you warm in extreme weather.  The only (possible) downside is that it is bulky, so plan on using it as something you’ll throw in the back of an SUV or a travel trailer.  But otherwise, this is the sleeping bag that will give you peace of mind that not matter how cold it gets, you’ve got a piece of gear (combined with a bivvy sack and a liner) and I just don’t see how you can go wrong with it, especially at this price.  I bought it in the middle of winter when we were doing one of our “Three Day No-Utilities Test Runs” and I was more than comfortable.

I had previously tried using the green Army surplus ECWS bags.  They worked fine for my wife, who is 5’3.  But at 6’1 it just wasn’t tall enough for me.  Not sure if maybe the surplus vendor who sold them had washed them and they shrunk as I can’t imagine guys bigger than me using those, so it could have just been the one’s we got.

Regardless, this Teton Sports Elk Hunter bag has more than enough room.  ** For some reason, Amazon is listing this as the Deer Hunter bag, but when I bought mine at a local sporting goods store it was called the Elk Hunter whereas the Deer Hunter bag was only rated to zero.  [Edit: Apparently this one is the Deer Hunter after all.  They’re saying the -35 is the “Survival Rating”.]
