On issue with the RAAF, commandos & NATO, in use by U.S. forces in Afghanistan, and other forces worldwide. The RECON 3 sleeping bag is a military-style, two season sleeping bag which will perform more efficiently than bags with natural fillings when wet. The military sleeping bag and the compression sack weigh approx 2 lbs 15 oz (1.33kg). The Compression Sack spider both reduces the volume of the stuffed bag for carriage and provides a waterproof outer covering. The Recon III packs up very small so you can stash it away in your backpack or kit.

The Best Bag I Have Owned
This is the best bag I've ever owned. I live in Colorado, and have used it backpacking in early spring. I've used it sleeping in the open under the stars and was very impressed with the warmth and water resistance.

The hood shape and ergonomics are excellent. The inner pocket for phones, wallet, iPod is very handy.

I served in the US Army and I wish I had this bag then. One of my favorite features is the extra inner lining for sleeping with your boots on. It's easy to clean, lightweight, warm, and packs to the size of a volleyball.

I'll eventually get the jungle bag, as even at altitude there are many warm summer nights in Colorado. I really have nothing bad to say about this bag, it's worth every penny.
