    Default Wiggy's bags

    hi all,
    i'm new to the forum,but ive followed for a while,and i really like what it has to offer.when someone asks for advise,it seems that the answers that are given are for real.im from canada and we have very poor selection for sleeping bags,etc.
    most canadians shop by price,not quality.
    i'm looking for a good roomy synthrtic sleeping bag.not a mummy style because i don't back pack,but compact enough to carry on a quad or in a 185.ive been looking at a wiggy bag.
    has anyone used them,or is there something better out there.
    any ideas would be appreciated.
    thanks,bob

    The wiggys bags are fantastic and sound like they will work perfect for your needs.

    I agree with LuJon. Even my wife can stay toasty warm in her Wiggy's bag and that is alot.

    Well synthetic bags are the cheapest of all so Canadians should like them. And you can even go cheaper getting some closeout synthetic bags from say REI or campmor for 50$. But I tried a handful of different synthetic fills and the warmest fill was Lamalite in a Wiggys bag. They do sell rectangular style also. Price is less than down and you can wash it to keep it clean. They have some good prices right now on the website...

    I love Wiggy's bags for everything except backpacking...with vehicle transport choosing one is a no brainer.

    Got a Wiggys SnugPak rated to 41F comfort and 32F as the Min. nice and warm and very very light and small like the size of a nerf football. Great for the day pack.

    We have 3 wiggies bags, all excellent bags. Oldest one is 20 years old and still works as good as the day I bought it.
    Even when wet, they keep you warm. No problem with storing them in a stuff sack either or washing in the machine at home.
    Highly recommended.

    If you're in Anchorage, the one and only Wiggy's Store is on the Old Seward next to that pink car wash. Marc Taylor owns/runs it and he has all their bags, I think.
    I may be slow, but I get where I'm going!

    Marc would probably ship one up to you. I have seen wiggys at the Anc sportsmans so it may be worth a look.

    I had the regular/regular super light. They are hands down the bet bag you will buy, especially at such a reasonable price. I did give my sister my reg/reg and I upgraded to the same bag in wide/reg. everyone I'm our family now has the super light bags. I like the product so much I have the liner jacket too. Nothing like wearing the bag on a cold day. I have had it from here to the north slope, to cold bay & unimak, homer, and back. I am not a paid advertisement, you can't go wrong with em'.
