The Backside -50 degree 'Blue Ice' Mummy Bag

Has anyone ever purchased and trail tested any of the products by this company? If so, I would be curious to know how they stood up to the test and if you would use the equipment again or switch brands.

I'm considering purchasing this bag for a thru-hike starting Jan 1st, 2006, and was hoping for some feedback as the link on amazon doesn't have any reviews.


Many thanks to everyone in advance.:rolleyes:

I haven't thru-hiked yet, but having lived in the Allegheny Mountains of West Virginia all of my life, I think -50 degree bag is overkill. A zero degree or maybe a -10 degree bag might be a little more realistic (not to mention lighter - the fill weight alone on that bag is 4 lbs and that dosen't take into account the outside of the bag).
Just my .02

Sorry for posting this here in the main forum, It should've been posted in the Gear Review section, where it's currently been discussed.

Many thanks for your comments April2006. Good luck on your hike this year.
