Excellent bag! Bought a second bag!
Review by John
Just a few things about this bag......
It's light and compact enough to take backpacking and it fits right into it's stuff sack easily. As with all sleeping bags the temperature rating can be subjective but this one kept my warm enough to 32 degrees. I added a bag liner from a reputable company and with the liner this bag would keep you (actually me!) to well below freezing.
I'm 5'9" and 155#s and the bag is about the correct size for me. If you're a big person this bag might be too small. I don't think Italians are as large as oversize Americans.
The bag design allows it to come over your head and cinch down holding in body heat and keeping cold out. The zippers are very high quality and operate in both directions without hanging up.
I bought one bag and when it arrived and I had a day to check it out I immediately ordered another then added a second liner also.
As with all bags you should never store one in it's stuff sack. It compresses the filler and doesn't allow it to air out. I hang mine from the ceiling of the closet.
All in all a great bag for colder weather. Unzipped I've used it on summer nights. Add a liner and you'll be good for winter camping.

Review by popen
the sleeping bag I received is like new, it has no visible wear, only signs of very light use. in contrast to other milsurp gear that spent some time in storage, it has no odor. cost is cheaper than comparable bags in retail . would buy again.

Mint condition, but used.
Review by Philip
I just received my ECWS bag. It arrived a nylon bag with external adjustable straps (4) and a drawstring.

The bag itself is in excellent condition, in my brief perusal I noticed no wear marks. It does need to be aired, it has been previously used. There is an internal cinch and a zipper slot on the back top, probably for an inflatable pillow.

An excellent cold weather bag in great condition.
