How do these bags handle the moisture from breathing?
I spent 65 nights (it was supposed to be 152) outside in the winter to test various bags and configurations. Unfortunately, the coldest it got was 13°F. But, in spite of that, every night I spent enclosed in one of my bags, I had no problem with moisture build-up.
This is proof...

This video was made spontaneously. When I looked outside and saw my bag laying there, I realized that it had been there for 4 days during the freezing rain, sleet and warmer temperatures that had melted some of the snow. When I used it four days earlier, it had been -12°F.
I HAD to go out and try it. Enjoy!

You'll want to watch it all the way through! ;)
|3°F night outside, no tent.
This is a night I spent out in November. I tried it with wet booties. Temperature was 3°F. Good information about wet foam booties. Wring them out good! :)
|How tough is the fabric I use for the bags?
People ask me, "How tough is the material that you use for the sleeping bags?"
I gave a friend of mine one of my sleeping bags for Christmas... over a YEAR later he finally uses it and REALLY finds out just how good they are! He told me later that he was just not excited about a "foam" sleeping bag. Fortunately, he had the opportunity to actually use it.
This is his story.
