Minus 0 below sleeping bags!!
« on: August 25, 2011, 12:21:53 PM »
Please point me in the right direction? And/or any old topics. Wanting to purchase some ASAP. One of the things on my "to-get-list", feeling an urgency to do so now! You know, before like what happened with the radiation pills? And, also as a reminder.....if you hadn't gotten any (pills that is) the first round, now may be a great time to do so. Godspeed.

Dania, you can pick them up on eBay for around $20-$40 used.
Or here:

I suggest a four season tent as well. I have a Chinook 3 person. Cheapest good one I can find:

Oh thank you and I will probably ask more questions.... The Chinook 3 person was already out of stock on one of the links. Go figure huh?

Oh Errrv......!! I'm back, lol. Okay give me the scoop. Mummy styles -vs- the traditional style. What are the pro's and con's of each? I mean if one needed to move around quickly  what then?

If you can get to an Army/Navy Surplus store, local gun show, or go to www.sportsmansguide.com, you can buy a US military standard issue sleeping bag.  They are pricey ($200.00 ish brand new) but OMG are they awesome.  I would crash at the North Pole in one of these.  Very much worth it.
You have to let it all go Neo.  Fear, doubt, and disbelief...  Free your mind.

JKB is correct. The 3 part bags are most excellent!

A mummy bag is cut to fit your body, and can completely close at the top, maximizing your natural body heat. A non-mummy bag does not do this.

Sorry Ed. The new ones do not. They don't make the sleeping shirt or the old smoking jacket anymore either. But you can get them at surplus stores. I think I have 5 or ten of those sleeping caps around here somewhere. The "chicken hat" is very warm!
