The Summer Lake gives you two options: you can use the top layer as a sheet by itself for warm nights when an entire sleeping bag isn't necessary, or if it gets a little bit cooler, you can simply turn the bag over and put the insulated bottom "on top." Now you don't have to pack two separate bags if the weather is going to vary while you're on your trip.
Note: Weights listed are for the bags only. Add 7 oz. for the compression sack.
I needed a new bag and wanted to try the lower price realm. With $$$ you can always get a great bag. This one is a great deal. Super light and compact, and just seems high grade in general. Would recommend to anyone camping in warmer temps, but with silk sheets I'd be comfortable at about 20 degrees even with this bag.
I wanted a light sleeping bag for summer camping ... this APLS bag is perfect. Though it is 33 inches wide and I am not really that large of a person, so far I have found it most comfortable to unzip it and use it more like a blanket on my air mattress than crawling into it. The main feature of this bag that I like is how small it is when rolled up.
This ALPS bag is a unique find. On one side is the same basic fabric that ALPS uses with their liner bags and the other side is the warmer side of the bag that's more of a nylon, typical sleeping bag fabric and fill. I use mine during warmer weather with my ALPS liner bag as my main covering, but then unzip this bag about 3/4 way down (zipper "locks" nicely) and lay on top of the liner side of the bag. Often times I'm still pretty warm when falling asleep, but during the night I get a little cool and then can just flip the fill side of the bag over me. It's worked great like this.
The big sell for me on this was that it is 33" wide and I don't feel so confined in it. I often fly to camp at the National Parks and this was one of the reasons I picked up this bag for its small size. Rather than have a more bulky bag I prefer this and would rather layer my clothes in cooler weather and have a more compact bag or to use a fleece sleeping bag that I pack in my carry on bag with it since they roll up pretty tight too.
I've never seen another bag like it and am glad I picked this up. Given all the cleanliness concerns that hotels/motels seem to have these days (i.e., bedbugs and other unwanted things) I can easily envision me using this in hotels or if I plan to stay overnight at someone's home so that person doesn't have to wash up sheets on my behalf for a brief visit. Great for sleepovers for kids or for summer camp too!
