Needless to say here we have another made to purpose sleeping bag. The interesting point with ALPS Mountaineering Summer Lake is that it has been designed for genuinely warm weather +55° F.
Nice weather to be to be outdoors fishing or just lazing around in the sunshine. The Alps would you not agree it is a cold place most of the time, depending on which time of the year obviously.
The ALPS Mountaineering Summer Lake is a big sleeping bag by normal standards measuring 33″ wide and 80″ long and is actually not a conventional sleeping bag at all. Designed for the warmer evenings under the starry skies, you can use it as a sheet to lie down on or if the chill sets in unexpectedly, just turn it over and cover yourself. Versatile unit if I may say so.
Another advantage is that you do not have consider taking two sleeping bags on your trip, as the above might sound confusing, no not at all this sleeping bag will suffice during the warmer months when camping. It is lightweight and easy to handle, the stuff bag is included and is big enough to house the bag.
The zipper is very easy to operate when it is needed, it is filled with 1lb of TechLoft+ material for that comfortable feel when you are either sitting on it, or lying underneath it.
The total weight you have lugged around with you is 2lb 7oz, nothing for you big guys. The sleeping bag is rated at +55° so you can rest perfectly.
What more can I say about this unique sleeping bag other than it is simply a must to have, it is so versatile and can be used absolutely anywhere, in front of the television, in the garden at the barbecue, as picnic spread, it goes on and on.
I am sure you will find a use for it that I have not mentioned here, to find out buy one you will not be disappointed.
Earthling1984 published on YouTube, was quite impressed with the construction and versatility of the ALPS Mountaineering Summer Lake.
His main concern was that it did not pack down small enough, the same concern with most of the sleeping bags we have discussed. He also commented as follows, “great for car camping but for backpacking I would choose something else”.
