thats the beast!!! i am by far not a expert on backpacking or sleeping bags but so far i am MORE than happy with this system. I am still very surprised a guy as tall as me can fit in it so comfortably. I would be willing to bet you could find one at a gun show sometime like i did, if nothing else that guy will be back at the Wanemacher Gun Show in Tulsa, OK next spring.

take it easy

    What is the overall size and weight of the system ? Is it small enough to backpack with ?

    I would say you can compress it into a roughly 1ft long by1ft wide tube. It weighs around 12lbs but like i said i have been using it without a tent so the extra weight doesnt really bother me.

    I'll agree that these sleeping systems are worth their weight in gold! I used one while in the service and I bought one for myself as soon as I got out.

    They pack up the size of a basketball, or you can use the black bag with tightening straps to configure it any way you'd like. Some guys like to make a log out of their sleeping gear and others like to make a ball. In any event, if you're thinking about it, just get one!
