Temperature Ratings for Sleeping Bag

Snugpak’s performance figures are drawn from over forty years of experience and customer feedback. Their comfort figure assumes you will be sleeping lightly clothed (thermal base layer or PJ’s) within a tent on a good quality sleep mat, at this external temperature the majority of users should feel comfortable and get a good night’s sleep. The low-temperature ratings are temperatures the sleeping bags have been used at by fit individuals with the minimum of discomfort. There are many variables involved in a good night’s sleep, including climate, altitude, fitness and metabolism, if in doubt stick to the comfort figure.

Has YKK hardware, great insulation and packs to small volume

by Matthew (Bushcrafter) -

The revision version of Snugpak Special Forces 1 sleeping bag I received does include YKK Vislon #6 zipper hardware. Snugpak has not updated documentation or website information to reflect information about YKK hardware.
<br>
<br>I have not used the sleeping bag in NSW, Australia Winter season yet, but have used down to temperature of 17°C with light wind and rain. Using only Thermarest foam sleeping mat and a bivvy bag, I was very much warm inside the Special Forces 1 bag. I was surprised how warm it got in such little time.
<br>
<br>Snugpak Special Forces 1 bag has excellent thermal insulation, packs in small volume, uses YKK zipper hardware and comes in official Multicam. These positive points easily justifies $ RRP.

Update: 3rd June 2021 AEST

by Matthew (Bushcrafter) -

Update review (after many months of real world use in outback Australia):
<br>Have finally used sleeping bag down to 0°C temperature, using alongside one base layer underwear (Helikon Tex), wool socks, GoreTex bivvy bag, Thermarest sleeping mat. I have less than 11% body fat. At no time in the month period did I feel "cold" inside sleeping system. No issues sleeping. Felt very comfortable. The sleeping bag has exceptional insulation.
<br>My only small gripe negatives about sleeping bag are the velcro secondary baffle enclosure and lack of ripstop fabric for interior. I removed the velcro before thoroughly using sleeping bag, as it will tear up the fabric by pulling threads. I have no damage to sleeping bag (yet).
