Hello

Anyone heard/seen/bought this sleeping bag:

Http://marmot.com/products/details/meteor

I'm considering to buy it now at REI is in operation (240$) and opprobrium.

According to the data for me to weight temperature and price I want.

I would love if someone could direct me to review or alternatively propose another sleeping bag at the same weight, and temperature.

Thank you very much.

Do you really need a sleeping bag so hot? If so, take a look at this:

I highly doubt that such fill weight make 700FP really comes to ranking of 18 degrees. Notice he didn't examine the EU standard, and although I was a good friend, MARMOT refers to this rating very skepticism (probably when I sat on it).

To gain scale, compare specifications of WM, their ratings are considered reliable.

Edit: now when I glanced again at the link attached, I noticed they had a mistake-15F =-10 c and minus eighteen as written there. It's already more plausible as rational.

In my opinion, in this case, price should not be a consideration. This is one of the most important elements is also a survival standpoint and from the standpoint of healthy, easy & so vital to quality of life during the journey.

About the temperature so of course they have a typo mistake.

On REI Shi EN COMFORT he registered 9C.

Ofer course I agree, but I'm willing to pay 200 $ 300 less for a sleeping bag that weighs 200 grams more.

These are: "EN RatingComfort 6th: 13.4° F/-5.8° C | Lower Limit: 9.3° f./-7.8° C | Extreme:-16.6° F/32.6° C ".

The significance of the lower 12 C I don't know nor understand, 6 degrees of comfort makes sense to shcsh weight 1200 grams and the price sounds just fine, given the 18 degrees Celsius not seen anywhere if called to what was written so that a given TEMP valve BAG and completely meaningless.

Ofer understand two sleeping bags are not even in the same League, Marmot's first three seasons, the best k affordable, one linked to that of medium-grade forms, first to six other 12 it was my understanding tmpartot entry level for climbers, the difference in weight is worth gold to climbers and meaningless camping, the difference in price is worth definitely worth climbing and shbilist are two different products for different markets.
