I took the bag to a weeklong ski trip (-20-25 Celsius in the night) and had no problems at all with staying warm at night. Great bag.
I sadly lost my stuffer bag that goes with it. What size do I need to fit this model?
Went van camping in Iceland in the winter. I used this bag and am very happy I had it. It kept me very warm. I did wear a couple of layers at night in the bag although I don't think I needed to. A few times I actually had to take off a layer because it got to be too warm. Very good bag and can't wait to use it on my next adventure.
It would be very helpful if Marmot would publish the packing volume of their products. After some trial and error, I found that this bag (Trestles 30 W) would just fit in a 15-litre cylindrical dry/compression sack: the final cylinder measures 7.5" dia x 17" when compressed as tightly as is reasonable. If you are using an ordinary drysack (without compression), you will need a 20L sack to get it to fit. Although not specifically designed for backpacking, I do use it for that, as well as for cycle touring and canoe camping, where it is important to keep track of your packing volume (and of course, your weight). It is a bit tight to get it to fit in the bottom sleeping bag compartment of my 55L and 70L backpacks, so I use the above drysack to attach it outside my pack--below or above. Otherwise, a product worthy of the Marmot brand: probably the best value/performance ratio out there. For the price, it is definitely worth 5 stars.
I bought this about a month for some camping in Montana in October. We hit some pretty cold temperatures and I stayed warm quite easily in this sleeping bag the entire time (and I run pretty cold in general). I even had a few nights where water leaked into my tent and the top of my bag got wet but I stayed nice and warm inside (did not even notice until the next day).
Bought it for my first overnight trip. Slept in a hammock on about a 37 or so degree night and was the only one out of the group that wasn't cold. The only problem was having to get out of it in the am.
I used this on a backpacking trip and found it acceptable. I like the width at the hips, however it did not compress as small as I would have liked. Also, it did not keep me warm enough. The temperature was around 40 degrees and I had to wear extra clothing to stay semi-warm. My sister was using an REI mummy bag that compressed a lot smaller than mine and was rated to 20 degrees and she stayed warm enough to sleep in a tank top! Not impressed...
I bought this bag and didn't think twice when the sales person told me it was big enough. I used it on the weekend and struggled to get my shoulders in the bag. Everything else was great...fabric, weight and price. My wife has claimed this bag and now I am in search of one I fit in.
I bought this item about a month ago. It was the perfect bag for the trip.
I have NO complaints about this sleeping bag. I am a very curvy woman with plenty in the hip area and I find this bag to be roomy enough for me to toss and turn all night without giving me a feeling of claustrophobia. I have NOT had a chance to try it out in 30* yet. My school of thought for buying this bag over others is this: I can always unzip my bag, or sleep on top of my bag. It's easier to neglect using a warm bag than it is to wish for a warmer sack when you are freezing. The only thing I was kind of bummed about was the color. I really wanted a blue sack- while this may not be important for some- I personally wanted to keep all my gear blue. I find that while traveling if all your gear matches in color it stands out, it is identifiable at a distance, and there is never much question as to whose it it.
