Mountain Hardwear Mtn Speed 32 Sleeping Bag -850 Down. An ultralight, high performance sleeping bag with 850 FP treated down, superlight fabric, 7 denier nylon, almost translucent. Ive slept in this bag down to about 30F and stayed comfortable and warm all night. This bag weighs 1 pound 1 ounce on my digital scale.Clean, no stains, odors, abraded spots or tears. Hard to tell from new. This is a very trim bag. It fits me, at 5-11 in my stocking feet and 180 pounds. I always wear a light layer - long underwear and a hat - when sleeping in a bag. I might be able to wear a very thin down sweater in this bag, but it is a slim fit bag.
The bag is long enough for me, but just barely. Im not sure it would fit if I were an inch taller. The hood is a typical Mountain Hardwear hood, well designed and comfy, but not generously sized. I fits me when wearing a hat, but no extra room. But this is what you get when you want a 30F bag that is just over one pound.
The zipper is 32 inches long, less than half length. I'm 74 and I can slither in and out of the bag without difficulty. The Mountain Speed 32 has a well deserved reputation for having zipper problems. I tried putting clear nail polish on the zipper flaps, which were the problem, but although that helped, it was still a chore getting the zipper to work in either direction.
Eventually, I cut the zipper flaps off. They were only about 1/4 inch wide, just wide enough to get under the zipper pull.
The zipper now works better than ever, but occasionally there will be a loose thread, a leftover from the zipper flaps, and I have cut them off with a little scissors on my small Swiss Army knife. I zip and unzip slowly, with a finger in front of the zipper pull when zipping. If I meet resistance, I back off and try again.If it happens again, I investigate and sometimes have to clear a loose thread from the path of the zipper. It take less than 5 seconds to run the zipper full length, but avoids problems. The bag comes with a replacement stuff sack and a replacement mesh storage bag.
I never used a stuff sack, just put the bag in my pack with the rest of my gear.
