|The Snugpak Jungle Bag in Comparison|
to a standard Poncho Liner
The Snugpak Jungle Bag solves all the problems of the poncho liner and then some. The Snugpak Jungle Bag is very compact. In the accompanying stuff sack its slightly larger than a Nalgene bottle. The stuff sack has compression straps that can be adjusted to save precious space (measuring 11.00" x 5.51" and weighing in at a mere 27 oz's).

Outer Fabric: The Snugpack Jungle Bag is made up of a Micro Diamond Lightweight outer fabric that is water repellent.
Inner Fabric: The inner Fabric is a Paratex Antimicrobial Fabric (It should keep the bag from smelling after extended use).
Inner-Filling: Consist of a Travelsoft an ultra lightweight high-loft insulation.
|Mosquito Net rolled away and|
The Jungle Bag comes with a built in mosquito net that can be zipped to seal around the hood section of the sleeping bag. When not in use it can also be rolled down and tied off to be stored out of the way. I've read some complaints of people stating the mosquito net bothered them lying on their face while they slept; and others concerned about some mosquito's being able to bite them because of the net so close to their face. The mosquito net didn't bother me lying on my face, but I'm not high maintenance. I guess you need to ask yourself whether a bite or two will bother you versus getting ate alive with no mosquito net at all. If you have to ask this question maybe you shouldn't spend time in the great outdoors. The only problem I did have was that I had gotten the zipper hung in the mosquito net; but that could have been an operator error. It was easily removed and did not harm the net or the zipper.

|Dual Zipper Feature|
Another pretty awesome feature of the Jungle Bag is that it has 2 separate zippers. It has the standard side zipper as well as a zipper at the squared foot section. This allows for use as a blanket or to be unzipped for air to circulate through the bag to keep the user cool.
I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a warm weather sleeping bag. The Snugpak Jungle Bag is an extremely comfortable sleep system and pairs great with a hammock. They come in 4 colors (Black, Tan, Olive, and Red) and retails for $89. I really wish I'd had the Snugpak Jungle Bag in my gun-fighting days. Get yours at ProForce Equipment
