High Compression Sleeping Bag in XL?
« on: June 20, 2011, 08:42:21 am »
I'm about 6'3", and 255 pounds. (Down from 280 and still loosing!) and a year or so ago bought a Eureka Summit Large for a summer sleeping bag. So far it has tried to kill me twice by suffocation, :o and otherwise does not allow a good night's sleep. It is just too tight across the chest for me to zip all the way shut, and if I leave it open, as I did last Saturday, I can breathe and get cold all at the same time! Plus side; I love it's compressibility. In a compression sack, it squeezes down to just larger than a (American) football. That was why I bought it.

Can anyone suggest a +20F (or warmer) Primaloft (preferably) sleeping bag that will fit a broad-shouldered, big chested, not-as-fat-as-I-used-to-be,  ;D  guy like me, that will compress into a small bundle?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

Ride safe,

Take a look at the Big Agnes park line. I have the buffalo park and the deer park and love both. Both are extremly compressable.

I am 6'3" 250 lbs with a pretty large chest 50 or 51 ... i think. I bought this bag last year and love it. You will not believe that anything that packs so small can keep you warm. It's freaky. Seriously.. check this one out

We recently purchased the #3 version (reg and long). We're quite happy with them and especially like that they take a lot less space than some of our older fluffy down bags. In general, we've become fond of MontBell - they've got good stuff that packs small.
