Kelty Coromell Sleeping bag?

Anyone have any experience with this bag? I been looking for an inexpensive rectangular bag in the 25 degree rating and the price and size seem good.

I have a nice NEMO sleeping pad already. I ruled out Big Agnes bags because of the integrated pad pocket...I don't think my pad would fit in it since it has a pillow top.

It'll be tough to find without going used. The smallest packed bags will be down and many with pack 7"x10" or so and they'll be the warmest. A synthetic bag will easily be over twice that size and likely be 10-15 degrees cooler.. But if you have the room, it may work for you. I'm not a fan of mummy bags either.

good luck..

There's nothing wrong with synthetic bags and they'll keep you warm, but as mentioned they pack over double to their down counterpart and along with that warmth will be a 3-4+lb bag vs 1.5-2lb for down.

So if one doesn't mind the extra weight and pack size, you could save yourself 50-60 bucks.

The last bag I had that was warm and packed small was probably a $400 bag.

I don't need a bag that fits in a sock....I realize the more money I spend the smaller it will get but I think this one might work for me...40F is probably about as cold as I hope to camp in....

That bag will be more than fine if you don't need small. I'd rather have a bulkier bag than have to fight one that fits like a condom when the night gets warmer.

I found this one that packs into a stuff sack that's 6" X 12":
http://www.rei.com/product/846675/mo...5-sleeping-bag

I love the pack size, but some of the reviewers complain about the zipper snagging on the fabric.
My old bag has an excellent zipper that rarely catches on anything.

Try the Kelty Mistral, packs relatively small and have used when temps were in the mid 20's.

That looks like a good buy as well but looks a little to mummyish for me....

A compression sack can help reduce the packed size of a synthetic bag, but it will still be larger than a down bag.
