The Mountain Hardwear Bozeman Flame sleeping bag and its 20 degree temperature rating deliver 3-season comfort and quality performance at a budget-friendly price. A generous cut aids in thermal efficiency without being as restrictive as traditional mummy bags.
Utilizing reliable, synthetic insulation, the Mountain Hardwear Bozeman Flame Sleeping Bag is perfect for campers and backpackers who are looking for a budget friendly sleeping bag that is cut to be a little bit more roomy and a little bit longer than your traditional mummy sleeping bag.
Now this is a mummy style sleeping bag where you have a traditional hood and it tapers down into the foot box. But, as I said, it is a little bit more roomy. So there is two sizes with this men’s bag. There is the regular which fits up to six feet five inches. And the girth is all the way up to 63 inches. The long version of this sleeping bag is all the way up to seven feet and the girth on that is 65 inches. So, as I said, it is kind of a little bit more roomy than a traditional sleeping bag. So if you feel a little bit claustrophobic in mummy bags, this might be the right bag for you.
Going through the features, it is insulated with synthetic Thermal-Q insulation. So the great thing about synthetic is that it is really water resistant, very reliable performance there. And the comfort rating or the temperature rating for this sleeping bag is right around 20 degrees. But the comfort rating is 28 degrees, so take that into consideration before taking this bag into the back country.
Starting up here at the hood you have a really nicely baffled hood. So you can cinch the top and the bottom part of the hood down if you need to batten it down to stay warm at night. And that is really easy to use draw cord there at the top.
You have a full length zipper here and that goes most of the way down to the bottom of the foot box. If I peel this back you can see that the foot box is really nicely baffled. So when you are in the sleeping bag you have a lot of room for your feet to move. The top of the sleeping bag isn’t just sewn to the bottom. You do have that box shaping.
If I uncover the bottom of the bag, you can see that they offset the zipper a little bit to be on the bottom. So that is a little bit more thermal efficient than having the zipper on the side.
Up here at the top there is a Velcro closure. So if you want to vent the sleeping bag from the top, but you don’t want to lose the top of the bag, you can just attach that there and nicely vent from the top of the bag, or you can vent from the bottom, because this does have a two way zipper.
Behind the zipper there is also a draft tube so that keeps out unwanted cold air from coming through the zipper. And there is a nice durable material sewn in behind the zipper. It is an anti snag design there, but also if the zipper were to get snagged on that material, it is more durable than the lighter weight material used for the bags. So it is not going to damage the sleeping bag.
This bag comes with an included stuff sack and a nice thing about the stuff sack is on the inside you have got a really soft fleece material. So if you turn this inside out and you put a couple of layers in there, you can use this as a pillow. But the sleeping bag stuffs down really easily inside this stuff sack here. And for a synthetic, 20 degree sleeping bag, it does stuff down to be pretty small.
All in all, the Bozeman Flame is a really great budget friendly synthetic sleeping bag that is going to give you reliable performance in the backcountry.
