« Beko nose guard | Main | Osprey Exposure pack »


The REI Woman's -5 Kilo was a complete disappointment to me. I am only 5'5", but stretching out crammed my toes into the footbox leaving them popsicled! And I'm a tiny 100lbs, but anytime I turned over in the night, all the warm air wooshed out and all the cold air whooshed in. Whole thing left me freezing cold! Even if I managed to be perfectly still, I never warmed up in this -5 bag, strange considering the temps never got lower than the 20's out there and I had a perfectly good thermarest under me. I spent the next night wearing an extra set of long underwear and a wool sweater!

My friends tell me to add about 15 or 20 degrees to get a truer idea of the temp rating on any REI bag, they may be right. I know I have certainly learned one thing, I will NEVER EVER buy a woman's bag again; too short, too narrow, even for me
