View Full Version : MIL Sleeping Bag Ratings

Looking for the temp ratings and such for the intermediate green MIL bags. Need to buy a new bag this week and I'm down to either that bag or a Carinthia.
Any info is appreciated

30 to 50 F Patrol Sleeping Bag
30 to -10 F Intermediate Cold Weather Sleeping Bag

From BrigadeQuartermasters.com
I can attest, it is a really warm bag.

Thanks! Did not think about looking at the BAM site. I have a old MIL bag that must be 25 years old so it's time to replace it with something.

I use the green MSS bag often. Packs down small. Have been in 40-45 range and been just fine. For a late spring/summer/early fall bag it is good. Makes a nice over bag too. Now if you are talking about the old one it is good to about 30. but man it is a beast to carry. Not super bad like my old extreme cold weather bag but still bad news.

Wiggy's made Ecotat lightweight and extreme bags from the USMC modular poncho shebang = flipping awesome! I use the heavyweight bag as my blankie in an unheated basement I sleep in during NYC's lovely mild winters. I've taken the lightweight to work and slept on my ambulance stretcher like there was no tomorrow... only to get woken up for a call 20 mins later
