Sleeping Bag Review: Montbell Ultralight Super Stretch Alpine Downhugger #2

Don't tell us money can't buy happiness.

This 725-fill-power down sack puffed up like it had silicon implants, yet packed down like a loaf of Wonder bread. The gossamer shell and liner stood up to abuse, and felt silky soft against the skin. Stretch baffles provided a comfortable, efficient fit for large and small testers alike. Length was a tad short for Jon, but if you fall at the other end of the height curve, you'll appreciate the drawcord in the footbox, which trims dead space by about 6 inches. The zipperless design earned kudos for its low bulk and simplicity, but made this bag oven hot in mild temps.
