Ratings & Reviews
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>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>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.
