"Fantastic price. Appears to be brand new. But I can't seem to figure out how to roll it into a \"small compressed package using the included compression straps\" as advertized. The second picture, where it's rolled up and strapped, is over 2 feet long by about 8\", with an awkwardly positioned strap on each end and no good way to compress it. Haven't taken it out and slept in it yet, but I got in, and it seems warm enough for any fall/spring/summer camping. I'm 6 feet tall, 200 lbs, and fit in it comfortably."

"Ordered these for the whole family, as we were looking for a sleeping bag liner for camping (it gets cold in the Rockies, even in summer). Arrived quickly a usual and upon inspection, I was very happy to discover another CTD surplus item that was in great condition and well worth the money. The outer bag is tough and has great rubberized material on the bottom to insulate the user from the cold ground and moisture. Two of the five outer covers had heavy brass zippers instead of the originals, but nothing showed any wear and the fleece liners were heavier than I expected. Even the linen inner liners were in great shape and, once washed, were soft and comfortable. The two inner materials (fleece and linen) button together and the whole system can be used as a mummy bag. No complaints here and I am now almost glad we missed out on the blue fleece bag liners. For this price, you aren't going to find this type of system with this much quality anywhere else. We got a lot more from this setup than my wife or I expected. The entire system may be too cumbersome for hiking, but for car camping or kids over-nighters, they are perfect, tough, and comfortable. Thanks for another great surplus deal, CTD. Keep 'em coming."

"I purchased this sleep system a few weeks ago, after researching various budget friendly options. It is worth the money I paid for it. However, I do have two complaints.One, the three pieces must all be buttoned together. The buttons are well stitched and durable, but VERY snug. My hands were quite sore after putting it together. And the same tight buttons act as the closure when rolling it back up.Second, I am a big guy (6'1\", almost 300 lbs, size 52 dress jacket, weight lifter build) and I can only fit my torso and one arm into the bag when fully zipped. Since it's going to spend most of its time in the Jeep in case of emergencies, it's not a huge deal. Still, for the larger built among us, it's something to keep in mind."

"I got this very quickly and it took a little bit to button the pieces together, but it is worth it because it is comfortable and warm. It is the perfect size for me and the outer layer is very tough, but the only problem I see is that I don't see what those side straps are for. They are facing the wrong way to be compression straps, but I'm glad that I am able to get another useful thing from this site."

"I rarely review items online but thought this sleep system deserved a few comments. First, I think it's a good value and worthy of owning. CTD sent me a new unit (thank-you) but it had a slight surplus/new fabric odor. Its a fragrance many of us like but it dissipated within a few days. The internal button system is not a big deal either and only take 30 minutes or less to be operational. My objective for this system was to keep to a limited budget, have reasonable weight for limited distance hiking/camping, compression and not wake up freezing at 40 degrees, and soaked by dew. The outer shell and zipper are both good quality and appear to have a rubberized type coating on the bottom, and on the two-fold mummy type hood. This should keep you mostly dry under the stars. The middle green section also appears to be of quality workmanship and may have some wool content but is probably higher in synthetic if not 100%. The inner blue-ish cotton liner is like a very thick sheet and comfortable and could double as an SOS flag due to its color. (Not camo for sure). The three part system also makes a great blanket when opened. The outer shell alone could be compared to a jungle bag minus the netting. Compressed, it's about 28\" by 12\" and flipping it into the built-in pocket it tight, but that's the idea. As for fitting into this bag, it wasn't made for large overfed person. Remember, this was designed for fit military personnel and 6'2\", 200 Lbs appears to be the target size, especially if you are zipped in, including the hood, and built-in rain fly. It's designed to survive the night, compress and pack-out asap. If was good enough for the Czech Army, it's good enough for my civilian use. I would NOT recommend using it below freezing unless other shelter/heat was in use. The \"straps\" by the way are to attach to a pack frame (bottom) or secure to the top of a pack. This system is effective for its purpose."

"Just so everyone knows, what everyone seems to think is a hood isn't actually a hood, it was meant to have a jacket or shirt or other soft clothing stuffed into it and buttoned shut for use as a pillow. That being said however this is a fantastic product and I ordered enough for me entire extended family 10 in total, and each and every one were in pristine surplus condition"

"Fast delivery. I am very pleased with these bags. First they are washable. Second they pack down pretty well for travel. My wife slept in one, she didn't complain and that says a lot. A few buttons were missing, but that was minimal. For the price, they are great deal."

"Ordered two of these bags thinking they would be good backups for sleep system. Arrived super fast as all CTD orders do and all I can say is WOW! They are both brand new, unused and they have replaced our current system because the high quality. Much more heavy duty but lighter than I thought. Ordering a few more now!"

"This is a true sleep system, insomuch that the liner and the fleece can be used together or separately according to temperature conditions. The \"fleece bag\" is just a thin polyester blanket with a satin border. The cotton liner is a thick sheet reminiscent of coarse muslin. Laundering will be necessary to remove the not-unpleasant storage odor. When zippered, the nylon cover has the profile of a mummy bag, with a little extra space in the foot box.Most importantly, this sleep system is tailored for the genuinely slender individual. Users who are taller than 6'0\" or so might have a bit of difficulty stretching out."

"Ordered two of these bags recently to which they arrived within a couple of days of place the order. These bags are exactly as described on-line. However, one arrived UNUSED and the second was barely used. The second bag was missing a few buttons around the perimeter that took about an hour to replace. I tried out one of the bags for fit and comfort overnight and determined they sleep better than a typical low-end poly filled bag. After washing the fleece and cotton liners, the bags were re-assembled and rolled up for storage. This product is REALLY an awesome deal at this price point and you REALLY can't touch this kind of deal in any retail store. Thank you CTD!!"

"What a great deal. Great for extra's in a cabin or car. I'd not hike with them, as they are a bit heavy, BUT are very well made and well worth the $20. I put these with my cots so I have a complete sleep setup if/when needed."

"Order three bags. Shipping was CTD's usual fast and efficient. Design is very simple and easy to use. The outer bag is waterproof on the bottom and acts like a bivvy bag. Both the fleece and the cloth liners are natural fibers. The fleece liner is a cotton wool blend and the cloth is heavy weight linen. The way to tell what they are made of is to cut a small snippet of the fabric and burn it. If what's left is ash, it's natural fiber. If it stinks and leaves a little plastic blob it's synthetic. One of the outer bags had the waterproofing compound peeling off like a bad sunburn and several badly repaired tears. Called CTD and they sent a replacement immediately. All the fleece liners needed repair to the satin-ish edge binding and replacement of a couple of missing buttons but that was minor. This is a three season bag. Would not do for cold weather camping but great for the trunk of the car or when you have unexpected guests at the camp. I gave four bullets because of the bad one they had to replace. All in all this is a good bag at a great price. I would by again and recommend to others."

"Bought 2, a little disappointed as one looked pretty good, but missing some buttons to fasten after rolling up. The 2nd was badly worn, and has multiple tears in the outer fabric shell, allowing water infiltration from the ground. Probably would not buy again..."

"I ordered two of these and the outer shells are in great condition for both. That being said. For one most of the buttons were missing so looks like I'm going to spend a day or two sewing buttons on. The second one the inner blanket is so badly degraded that the stitching is falling apart, buttons fall off upon touching. Looks like I'll have to get a USGI blanket as a replacement. Both of the blue sheets are in good condition. Don't think I'll order these again and would not suggest them to anyone either unless all you need are the outer shell."

"I've ordered two of these from CTD; they're just too good a bargain to pass up. Both of the units I ordered were in great condition; the first one was slightly older and had some minor repairs (mostly mismatched buttons), but was in otherwise perfect condition. The second one was brand-new (the date on the tag was 2003!), probably never issued; the bivvy on this one differed slightly from the older one in that the top layer appeared to be made of a slightly thinner water-resistant, breathable layer, whereas the older one was the same OD nylon material throughout. The blankets and sheets for both had no rips, tears, or holes, and buttoned into the bivvy with no issues. It appeared that the linens had been freshly laundered, and there was no odor whatsoever. The blanket is fairly thin, and the sheet is woven with some pretty thick thread; strangely enough, I found that the sheet stayed comfortably cool on the skin when used. Now, I wouldn't exactly call this a 3-season bag; as it is, I'd rate it as a 40-degree F bag, at most. Also note that, because the inner layers are buttoned in, the user's feet will be slightly more exposed to cold temperatures when the bivvy is zipped closed, so I'd recommend wearing socks if you intend to use this bag for hiking or camping. However, you could easily rig another, thicker blanket with buttons, or just slip another layer in on top of the others for more warmth. The bag is a bit on the bulky side, both in size and weight; it does have compression straps, but they leave a bit to be desired. A stuff sack is recommended if you intend to carry this bag in a pack. The whole system can be folded up and stuffed into the top 'pocket' (which can also be stuffed when the bag is in use and used as a pillow!) then buttoned and cinched down for storage/transportation. Overall, this is a great, well-designed, durable sleep system. Highly recommended for anyone looking for an inexpensive 'emergency' sleeping bag, or just something cool and u...."
