roominess, a big foot box, and the ability to pack down to nothing.
Less weight and bulk - in fact, the Slick Bag has the best warmth
to weight ratio on the market. We blend the best of
insulations with our Rhino Skin fabric to produce a bag that is
extremely compact when stored, yet lofts up to deliver lifesaving
warmth. Deceptively "thin", this bag is devoid of bulky, quilted
Roominess: Much roomier than typical recreational
mummy bags, meaning you can sleep fully clothed, including boots.
Built for long term living in difficult terrain and conditions.
Insulation: Climashield® APEX reaches new heights in
combinations of weight and thermal efficiency. Developed from a
culmination of over 25 years of manufacturing experience, this
innovative insulation is the lightest weight and most thermally
efficient continuous filament insulation on the market today.
Care:Due to the fact that the human body produces a lot of
perspiration (up to a quart even in one night!), you'll want to air
out your sleeping gear. If left unchecked, damp insulation
will make them less efficient at trapping heat. When you get
home, air out your gear again thoroughly, and hang or store it
uncompressed in a Stow-Away.
Cleaning:Seasoned folks know that cold weather soft goods
rarely get washed, as the process can reduce the effectiveness of
the insulation. Never dry clean your Woobie or Slick Bag! We
recommend hand washing with Nikwax Tech Wash or Woolite, then hang
it over a clothes line.
20 standard wide
From Nick Jardine of Lakewood, Colorado on 2/18/2017.
This bag is great! Extremely well made, warm and very comfortable. Loving the functionality of the top zipper. Packs down well with the compression bag. Went with the 20 degree to save on size and price which I put towards a woobie. The woobie is extremely versatile and in the event it gets too cold, I can line my bag with the Woobie! Boom, 0 degree bag! Nice addition and another great Kifaru product.
0� regular width, long.
From Luke of Luxemburg, Wisconsin on 1/26/2017.
I am 6 foot 170 pounds and the regular long bag has plenty of room to stretch my legs and feet. I probably could have got by with the regular length though. Haven't got a chance to try it outside yet. I will update when I get the chance.
Nice Materials, Poor Design
From Sorell of MAHTOMEDI, Minnesota on 1/20/2017.
The materials are first rate and pack down well. The design of the sleeping bag is not long enough nor big enough for a 6'4", 240lb man, plus the head portion was drafty.
Awsome sleep system
From Anonymous of mountain tops, Virginia on 1/13/2017.
yes its awesome... warm. spacious.
From Howard Robertson of Fort Drum, New York on 12/17/2016.
I bought the 0 degree bag to replace my Army issue fart sack. I am stationed at Fort Drum and just finished a field exercise where the average night temp was single digits and I slept in my silks and under a poncho hooch and I was toasty. I love it. My new favorite bag. It is noticeably lighter than the full winter bag and fits much better in the bottom part of the Molle ruck. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a quality warm bag for cold weather.
20 degree slick bag regular
From Joel Schreiber of Eagle, Colorado on 11/7/2016.
Pretty nice bag! It was breathable and I didn't get that clammy feeling during the temperature swings (50-20) that you can sometimes get during the CO nights. Used for elk hunting and fishing trips in the fall mostly. Center zip is really nice and the bag itself is very comfortable and roomy. At 5'9" I had some extra room in the bottom of the bag for storing some clothes which is a nice feature on the cold mornings. Very durable. Being synthetic it doesn't pack down as small as some but for the comfort, it was a fine trade off. I preferred to use a typical compression sack as I could get it quite a bit smaller than with the Kifaru stuff sack. The only negative was that the corners on the pieces of velcro for the zipper closures on either side of the zipper are pointy and sharp. You don't really feel them with a base layer besides catching on the fabric if you move around, but if you sleep without a base layer they feel scratchy and annoying. After about 10 mins with a sewing scissors and rounding off the corners on the velcro, the pieces weren't as noticeable and didn't catch on your clothing. Replaced the zipper pulls too to make a bit easier. Other than that money well spent for a good night rest!
couldn't of asked for better
From Joby Kelly of Watford city, North Dakota on 10/30/2016.
I procrastinated until the last minute before deciding on what bag to order. I still received it before my trip and I couldn't have expected more. .... highly recommended. You won't be disappointed.
From Anonymous of Castlegar, British Columbia on 10/17/2016.
Used it on a 2 week hunt in northern b.c. temperature got down to zero degrees and the bag was plenty warm for me. I really like the center zip system, it's very handy for opening and closing the bag from the inside. I also used the center zip for reading. The pillow lash is really nice too, I used it with a blow up pillow and it worked great! I bought the compression sack with the bag and am happy with it, the bag doesn't get super small when compressed but to me it's well worth having a bulkier synthetic bag that you can get wet (which I did) and still have a functioning sleeping bag that will keep you warm. Great bag!
From Jeonghwa Lee of Hong Kong, Hong Kong on 10/8/2016.
very comfortable and warm.
Best Sleeping Bag I've Used!
From Tj Perez of Phoenix, Arizona on 9/30/2016.
I got this bag a little over 2 months ago and I have only used down bags before this and I wanted to get a synthetic bag especially because it was supposed to rain a lot for my hunt in Colorado which doesn't happen a lot, but I didnt want my bag to go flat since I was going to be hunting solo.Well Kifaru exceeded my expectations once again! I got the +20 degree wide bag and there is plenty of room in the bag and I am very happy with this purchase and a definite must for your next adventure. Even with the rain and condensation the bag still stayed warm and never went flat due to being synthetic. The temps got down to 18 and 19 degrees and I was extremely warm in the bag! I used it for a scouting trip in AZ as well and only got down to 40 degrees and I just left the bag unzipped and left wide open and was just fine and not too hot and breathed very well.If you're in the market for a new sleeping bag give this one a hard look! Plus its made in the USA by Americans and supports hunters!Thank you,TJ
From Stan Baker of Belgrade, Montana on 9/26/2016.
Nice sleeping bag and kept very comfortable in the somewhat decent weather we had hunting. The one thing that was a bit uncomfortable was the head of the bag. I am a very warm person and typically do not need my head covered so the string loop around the head was a bit annoying without being able to expand it out any further and then having the cord be in my face.

Great sleep system
Outstanding Slick Bag
From Jon Cherrington of Jackson, Ohio on 7/5/2016.
Slick Bag was outstanding on my trip into theFlat Top Wilderness - Colorado. I slept both under the stars and in a tent and could nothave been more satisfied.
From jeff of Wassaic, New York on 6/7/2016.
Used it bear hunting in Alaska. I am 6'3" and 205 pounds. I got the long and wide bag. I did not regret it. Was warm and dry in the bag. No complaints at all!
From T dub of Kalispell, Montana on 6/3/2016.
I opted for a wide regular length bag and I really appreciate it's roominess, no more twisted up in a down pretzel while simply changing sleep positions. When you climb out just throw the sides to the middle and the baffle system seals effortlessly. Sleeping in the cold woods doesn't get much better.
Highly recommend this bag!
From Jordan Budd of Cody, Wyoming on 6/2/2016.
As a field producer I'm never 100% sure what our next hunt is going to entail for accommodations. So I take my 0 degree Slick bag with me on every trip we go on.. light, compact and warm. Enough room in the foot box to not feel like a mummy while still keeping the sleek design. Two way center zipper makes me wonder why I hadn't got this bag sooner. I've taken it on numerous hunts and trips including Alaska and northern Alberta in the spring. The bag got slightly wet on both trips but I never felt a reduction in comfort. In the 5 string compression sack it fits in the bottom of my AMR perfectly. I highly recommend this bag for anyone looking for a great all around sleeping bag. I will be buying the 20 degree as well.
I'm a believer
From Aaron J. Cooper of CDA, Idaho on 5/2/2016.
I probably own 6 or 7 different bags. I've bought enough to know what doesn't work. I've spent a house payment or two on bags. I hate most of them. I can't stand how they feel. Let's just say, after receiving my bag, I slept in it that night. I bought the regular wide because I like one leg cocked up and the other straight. Can't do that in a mummy bag...not ever. I'm no fat boy. This bag was a pleasure to sleep in. Like a comfy comforter, only better, way better. I finally found a bag that works, makes all the difference in the world and it's so stinking light and compact-able, makes me wonder why it still stays so comfortably warm, I had no, not one hot spot cold spot. I can literally say, it was as close to perfect as it gets. Well done, worth the wait. Thank you Aaron Snyder and crew for Everything! I mean it! Semper Fi!!!
From Shari of Mountain Center, California on 4/7/2016.
After spending way too many hours reading through Cold-weather Sleeping Bag reviews, I pulled the trigger on the Kifaru Slick Bag -20 degree for a mountaineering trip. The Slick Bag packed down to a nice size in a standard stuff sack, fluffed up in seconds once removed, and kept me toasty warm every night at High Camp which was located at over 10,000 ft elevation with temperatures in the teens. My only criticism is that the Slick Bag doesn't come in a smaller size. I'm 5'5" and the Regular has a lot of excess that I don't need.
From Todd C Barton of Manhattan, Montana on 4/4/2016.
This is the best sleeping bag on the market for the backpacking hunter. My only complaint is that Kifaru doesn't make more clothing.
From Andrew Ferreira of watertown, New York on 2/16/2016.
Great ergonomics, the contouring in the shoulders is really useful, as well as the baffling that covers your neck and the center line zipper. The material is tough and keeps you warm down to 32 and below. I love bags with the center zip, they are usually a little harder to find. My only issues are first, the velcro that attaches the baffles covering the zipper. Its basically rough square pieces, a cleaner job could have been done. If you get in your bag without clothes you are getting scratched up. For like issue stuff no issue, but for dropping money equal to a down bag from mountain hardware or something, this should be cleaner. The other issue is the foot box. There is a ton of stitching down there and I think it leads to foot box that runs cold. Again, I get it, I've slept in the field with only a woobie or whatever, but for spending this kind of cash I'd expect these kind of details to be a little more refined because again, for the money you can also get some big (er) box climbing or hiking company bags that are pretty refined.
From Gordon Husth of Princeton, New Jersey on 1/16/2016.
This is the best sleeping bag on the market. Un-quilted Climashield, lightweight nylon ripstop shell, neck draft collars. Great materials and design. Now I own both side zip and center zip Slick bags. There are pros and cons to the new center zip. Compared to the old bags it is markedly easier to zip and un-zip, and is nearly snag proof. The new hood design and cinch cord are absolutely brilliant!! However, the new center zip introduces a minor cold leak at the top of the bag. And having a thick bar of insulation with velcro on it, right over your body, takes a little getting used too. Overall, this is a worthy successor to the old Slick bags but I consider it more of a variation than an improvement. I would love to see the old side zip design offered as well. And how about an all OD green version? Thanks Kifaru!
From James Wallace of Kalispell, Montana on 12/21/2015.
The slick bag that I got was everything that I thought it would be and more. I got it in the wide because I wanted to be able to move around in the bag. It has lots of room for that. The zipper feature works good for venting and being able to get outside the bag and still stay nice and cozy. I got the 0 degree and have been nice and comfortable on some cold nights. Love the bag. And the stuff sack is rad also! Thanks Kifaru you guys rock.
No More Freezing at night
From Steve of Northern Afghanistan, Armed Forces Europe/Middle East/Canada on 11/8/2015.
I am in the northern mountains of Afghanistan and it gets a bit nippy at night out here. I've used a few other Kifaru products and have been thoroughly impressed with the quality and durability of them. I was hesitant on pulling the trigger on the slick bag but once my will was broken from freezing my tail off at night, I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER. Its a great bag. I was concerned with waking up in a pool of sweat but that hasn't happened. Its a little on the bulky side for you slick packers but well worth the extra ounces to have a good nights sleep.
Great bag, Small annoyance
From Jonathan Semper of Duncan, British Columbia on 10/14/2015.
Have slept in this bag most nights for the last two months, best sleeping bag I've had. Fits my 6 foot, 170lb body perfectly and the front zipper totally rocks. Only critiques I would make is the finishing stitching and the amount of velcro on the bag.the stitching around the head and collar, looked like it was just finished with a serge stitch and started to unravel after the first month, I was pretty disappointed about that, it was an easy fix but for the price point I feel that the quality could be higher.As for the velcro that was a definite annoyance if you slept in the bag with no liner or long underwear, the insulation below the zipper attaches with velcro, but obviously little peaces get exposed and are uncomfortable to rub up against at night. My thought was something similar to what they use on allot of motorcycle gear which is covered magnets, I have them on my pants and they work awesome, silent, easy and you don't feel them, guess the major downside would be the weight. Anyway that's about it, not that anyone's gonna read a review this long, I know I never do but hey! The fun's in the writing of it, write?
Bang for the buck
From Alvaro Andaluz of Redwood City, California on 10/11/2015.
Used the 20 degree slick bag on some backpacking trips and it has worked great!! if it gets too warm just unzip the center and you'll be in good shape. Can't wait to use it on some hunting trips. Highly recommend the 5 string medium stuff sack for carrying it when backpacking/hunting.
Best bag, hands down!
From Brady of Mesa, Arizona on 10/6/2015.
I got the -20 bag for when I take trips to the snow and pretty much just in case. I got the wide one because I have issues being confined in a mummy bag. Even in the snow the bag is incredibly warm, and it is so comfortable that my wife claimed it as hers. Now I need to buy another for myself. I love the quality of the product and the toughness of the material. Great care and thought is evident in the design and construction. Worth every damn penny!
From FrankRoddy of Denver, Colorado on 8/17/2015.
I recently did 10 days on the Lost coast with this bag and it was excellent. Summer there but still cool and wet at night. I like the center zip , looking forward to using it in colder conditions. Only reason I gave it 4 stars was the weight , just a little on the heavy side. I would recommend this bag and I look forward to years of use.
Unorthodox but awesom
From DEHusker of Fort Collins, Colorado on 8/1/2015.
Top quality, top materials. I've got the new model center zip 0 deg bag. Reasonably light, reasonably pack-able. Only complaint and reason it didn't get 5 stars for me is that, IMO, the temp rating is a bit off. I'm a warm sleeper normally but this bag couldn't keep my feet warm (with wool socks - not too tight) in 20 and 30 deg temps. I've used the bag down to about 20 deg and I'm not sure it would keep my body warm, even with insulating clothes on, in true 0 deg temps. As we all know, sleeping bag temp ratings are somewhat arbitrary and vary according to each individual so take this with a grain of salt. Perhaps offer a model with "increased foot insulation" as I noticed that in my bag, the insulation seems thinner in the foot area than the rest of the bag...Maybe I'm crazy. LOVE THAT IT'S MADE IN THE USA!!!
From DOC of CALEXICO, California on 7/10/2015.

best of the best
From Anonymous of springdale, Arkansas on 6/29/2015.
I have tried lots of different bags over the years. Seemed like the more of a premium price I paid, the narrower the bag was. Most were too narrow for my body shape. I am 5'10" on a good day in boots with wide shoulders. Weighing in at 215, most bags were too narrow. Enter the slickbag. I purchased the 0� bag and I love it. The center zip is much easier with my build. The baffle system does a fantastic job. Very comfortable and I can even move around a little. This bag is build right.
From Rodney Rudd of Rochester, Indiana on 5/31/2015.
At 6'1 220 this bag is awesome for early season hunts. Love the center zip. I also have the 0 and it is awesome for late season hunts.
From Josh Smith of Meridian, Idaho on 5/8/2015.
Very roomy and warm. the added compression bag was also well done and appears to be gear I'll have for a long time.
From Kevin Herzog of APO, Armed Forces Europe/Middle East/Canada on 5/4/2015.
Used it for a weekend ruck/camping trip in Bavaria. After a long day of getting rained on I set this the 0' Bag up underneath a tarp and did not want to get out until the sun rose the next day. Keeps you warm but without suffocating you, and I do not regret the admittedly sizable chunk of change this cost especially when I already own a standard issue sleep system. But the savings in weight and space in my ruck are worth it. The only thing I can knock it for is for those of you that like to sleep commando, the Velcro that keeps the interior flaps connected can be bothersome. If you sleep with a t-shirt though you are good. All in all, am very happy with it and can't wait to use it again.
Slick Bag -20 and 0
From jtculley of Atlanta, Georgia on 4/27/2015.
I purchased a Highlander -20 and a Multi-cam 0 degree slick bags from Kifaru...colour me very impressed. I have a couple Snugpak bags that while high quality material are made too slim for my build. I can't stand being scrunched and bunched while sleeping and the wide model slick bags are perfect. I got to test the -20 bag down to -14 and holy cow did it perform. I tested without a sleeping pad and no fire, straight to the ground and the bag still kept me not just warm but comfortable. If used in conjunction with proper underneath padding the -20 can prolly go a bit lower, at least for me. I haven't gotten to to test the 0 bag as winter ended and it gets very warm in the SE U.S. region but it seems just as high quality/ functional as the -20. They seem pricey but after spending nearly as much on bags that don't perform near as well, I can easily say they are worth it.
BWCA in Feduary
From Chad Gallagher of Ely, Minnesota on 3/5/2015.
I have both an old model -20 and a new model (center zip) +20. I have taken both into the BWCA on a variety of trips in all sorts of weather. I recently used the -20 on a weekend winter trip, and it worked amazingly well. The temps got near -35 with wind-chill at night, but the bag kept me warm (also had a base layer on). The +20 bag is also an amazing bag, and I love the center zip. I tell everyone they should purchase these bags. Thanks Kifaru.
+20,0,-20 Slick Bags
From Derrek Bowman of La Follette, Tennessee on 1/9/2015.
I am 5'9" 175lbs with wide shoulders. The Reg size slickbag fits me great with a little room to spare in both length and width. I require a wide version in most bags. I have Slickbags with CS Apex rated at +20F, 0, and -20F. With a thin base layer the +20 bag keeps me comfortable to +25F. In the 0 bag I am comfortable to +10F. I've had the -20 bag down to +5F and was very comfortable. It's not been cold enough to find my limit in it yet. Comfort limits are subjective. After going 15 miles with 30+ pounds I tend to sleep a little on the cold side. The baffle on the centerzip works great. The Kifaru slickbag with Climashield Apex insulation has the best warmth to weight ratio of any synthetic bag I've tried. It is a few ounces heavier and slightly bulkier than high quality down but with all the benefits of synthetic insulation. It is by far the best synthetic bag I've found. I highly recommend it.
Excellent quality and performance!
From JimG of Orlando, Florida on 11/19/2014.
In sunny Florida we rarely need cold-weather gear, so I ordered my Slick Bag with a +20-degree rating to cover the most likely worst-case scenario. Last night the temperature dipped below 40 degrees F with wind chills bringing the perceived temperature down to the 30s--a cold night for this part of the country. I thought it was a good opportunity to test the Slick Bag's practical capabilities and I was definitely impressed. For such a light and compressible bag it's really warm, keeping me comfortable outdoors for nearly 7 hours with no issues whatsoever. In my experience the +20 Slick Bag outperforms the GI Modular Sleep System patrol bag and USMC 3-season bag, and with the improved center-zip design it's roomier than either of these issued bags. I highly recommend this product.
From S. Bush of Portland, Oregon on 11/16/2014.
I wanted a backpackable synthetic and when I saw the new center-zip I knew I was going to have one, especially since I hate the small side-zips that constantly snag. I have several down and synthetic bags and experience with each. When I pulled the 20F standard Slick bag out of the box in August my first reaction was that I really like the color and there's no way in 'heck' this thing will keep me warm under 40 F.September elk hunting was hot and I was completely comfortable using the lower zip to vent. Laying in the bag my thoughts were, the center zip alone is worth alot to me, and, there's no way this bag will keep me warm below 40F.West Oregon just got hit with a winter storm. The first night brought temps in the 20's, freezing rain, and high winds on the mountain top where I live. I decided to test the bag.As a cold sleeper I assume I will get chilled within 10 degrees of any bag's rating and I knew I wouldn't last long in the bag with this test.Wearing only cotton socks/undies/beanie I zipped up in the bag, put a boat cushion on a steel patio chair, and sat with my feet up just out of the direct wind. So, no tent and no insulation beneath me, just blowing air.I was shivering when I got in the bag and three hours later I was not cold. I did not spend the whole night in the bag but I was impressed knowing that with a tent, pad, and first layer, I would be very warm, no question.
-20 slick bag.
From Anonymous of little rock, Iowa on 11/11/2014.
This is the first review I have ever submitted. Kifaru is the only company whose products have impressed me to do so. I have recently had the chance to test it's capabilities out for cold weather. I simply set up a lean to shelter to block the 20 mph wind. Temps got down to 15 F. I did not have a fire and didn't use thermal underwear or other heating devices, just a sleeping pad. I am a cold sleeper but didnt sleep cold that night. Center zipper and baffle system is such a great design. And like all Kifaru gear it's built to last. Thanks for providing such an excellent product.
Exceeded my expectations
From Andrew Meader of Washington, Iowa on 10/30/2014.
I used this Slick Bag elk hunting. It completely exceeded my expectations. It is light weight and tough. I really appreciated being able to use the different zippers to help regulate temperature. One night there was heavy condensation in our shelter. I didn't know until I woke up, the bag kept me dry and warm. Each night I knew I'd be able to depend on the Slick Bag. Kifaru staff are top notch.
Cool weather review
From Josh Parkins of Rio Rancho, New Mexico on 10/26/2014.
Let me start off by saying I am a warm sleeper. I own the +20 long wide slick bag and took it our for a spin this last weekend at 9000 ft. The temp dropped down below 20 deg F on the first night. I was wearing a t-shirt, jeans and socks while in the bag. Around 0500 the only part of me that got slightly cool, but not cold was my feet. I was toasty everywhere else. I love the bag and the build quality. It is light and almost compresses as small at my down bag. There was condensation on my tent walls and on the bags fabric but due to the high quality material the water just rolled off. My only regret is not purchasing the -20 bag as well for those really cold winter trips. I do own a Doobie as well and may just stuff that in my +20 bag. That may just do the trick for the 0 deg weather.
20 Degree Slick
From Christopher Hanes of Chugiak, Alaska on 10/24/2014.
Another outstanding product from Kifaru. I ordered this because I was tired of being cold on my back country hunts. Just got back from a successful Goat hunt on Kodiak Island. While in the high country I woke up every morning covered in ice, but I was toasty warm inside and got a great nights sleep. I also ordered the small 5 string stuff sack to pack the slick bag in. It worked out very well also. These great pieces of equipment have found a permanent place in my kit bag.
From Anonymous of ellsworth, Wisconsin on 10/24/2014.
Get it you need it
Great sleep product
From Cedric Chausson of PARIS, France on 8/9/2014.
I have a +20°F Slick bag which I bought just before the summer.I used this bag this summer during several treks with nights in the 20s-30s Fahrenheit. I was usually dressed with base layer, insulation layer and outerwear plus cap and two layer socks. I found the bag was suited to these temperatures. I got some chills while wearing only base layer and outerwear and preferred in following nights to add an insulation layer but I am a cold sleeper being tall (6"4) and thin.The center ZIP is an AWESOME feature. I had a previous side zip Slick bag and could not resist to buy the new version with the center ZIP. It is so much more practical especially if you use a bivy or bug net. Only slight con, I would have liked the zipper to go a bit more further.I also prefer the collar of the side zip version but the center zip ones are ok for all purposes.The bag is roomy enough for me to put my inflatable mattress inside it which I have found to be much more practical as I can more easily re-position it during the night when it slips.One feature of the bag which impressed me is the water resistance of the material. Several times, I woke up in the morning and realized when I go out of the bag that the outer shell was wet but I had not felt it a bit from inside the bag.It's very compressible which is a real boon.The zippers are nice and function really well. I just have to change the paracord on them so I can more easily tell them apart during the night as they are so similar sometimes you get confused while half-asleep.Another great Kifaru product!
Great build quality
From Kurt of Denver, Colorado on 5/27/2014.
Bought the 20 degree bag in a long, wide. I am 6'7" and the extra room is great. Overall build quality is Kifaru tough and very pleased with it. The stuff sack works very well and I am glad I picked that up too. One of the lighter bags I looked at and great to have it made right here in Colorado.
From Gallagher of Ely, Minnesota on 5/20/2014.
Took the +20 Slick Bag on a 5 day Superior Hiking Trail expedition (may 15-19) temps got in the 20's a couple nights, but I was toasty warm. The center zip is awesome and the bag has plenty of room. Fantastic product.
From Mack of Augusta, Georgia on 3/23/2013.
I got the multicam 0 degree version of the bag. I've tested out sleeping in it in a 70 degree house and surprisingly I didn't overheat. Took it out into the woods and it was perfect, slept like a baby; didn't even bring a sleeping mat. That night it got into the low teens and started storming like crazy, still I stayed warm. Another great product from Kifaru. Thanks!!!
12/14/2016 – Can I squeeze a 0 degree standard bag in a medium stuff sack without doing damage to the bag? Same question with the 20 degree . . .
Response From Kifaru Intl.: Unfortunately, it's a tight enough squeeze that I think it would damage the stuff sack over time. That being said, those strings do a great job of really compressing the bags down. I don't think it would really make the overall stuff size any smaller going down a sack size.
6/22/2016 – Afternoon, Looking to pull the trigger on your slick bag and I have a couple questions. I am a stocky 70" 210 lbs and I'd . . .
Response From Kifaru Intl.: Hi Michael,For the use you are describing, it would be best to go with a wide.
6/9/2016 – What length bag for 6'2" person? Are the temperatures listed for the comfort rating?Thanks
Response From Kifaru Intl.: Hi Austin,For your height, a long version would work best. Yes, our temperature ratings are comfort ratings.
5/15/2016 – Hi, I'm interested in the standard length, wide width, 0 degree slick bag. But would you be able to tell me the approx size . . .
Response From Kifaru Intl.: Hi Nick,Our 0 degree bags work best when compressed in our large 5 string stuff sacks. The compressed size is 8" x 16".
3/31/2016 – If I compress a standard length, +20 degree slick bag with one of your medium-sized five-string stuff sacks will it fit into . . .
Response From Kifaru Intl.: Hi Justin,Yes a compressed 20 degree slick bag in a medium 5 string stuff sack will fit in the bottom of an express pack.
2/28/2016 – Does the slick sleep system come with a stuff sack for packing it when not in use?
Response From Kifaru Intl.: Hi Alex,Our slick bags do not include a stuff sack. We do sell stuff sacks and stow away storage bags separately however. The stuff sacks can be seen at this link: https://store.kifaru.net/stuff-sacks-p29.aspx. Our stow away bags can be seen at this link: https://store.kifaru.net/stow-away-bags-p179.aspx.
1/28/2016 – Im 6 feet tall barefoot. will the regular length be long enough if I have boots on?
Response From Kifaru Intl.: Hi Anthony,Though the regular length Slick Bags are listed at 6'1" for length, there is an extra inch or two that is not listed, so you should not have any issues using our regular length.
2/18/2015 – Are the bags rated in celcius or Fahrenheit? Thanks
Response From Kifaru Intl.: All of our temperature ratings are in Fahrenheit.
