Backpacker Magazine – October 2003
Call this sack a rebel--a synthetic bag that weighs less and stuffs small.
Packability The lightest and most compressible sack in the test.
Warmth The high-loft Minima proved true to its temperature rating, keeping Steve warm during chilly bivouacs in Alaska.
Shell The Pertex ripstop nylon shell doesn't absorb moisture on heavy-dew mornings.
Hood The contoured hood wraps neatly around the face and opens easily.
Features A fat draft collar and draft tube earned high praise from all testers.
Fit The bag runs short, and the fit is cramped, which meant compressed insulation and cold spots for our biggest testers.
Collar The yoke-style draft collar gets in the way of venting in moderate temps.
Sizes: 2 lengths
Weight: 2 lbs. 11 oz.
