The US Military Patrol Sleeping Bag is the lightest sleeping bag that belongs to the Modular Sleep System. This sleeping bag is designed to give soldiers a lightweight sleeping bag that can be used when the weather is not cold enough for the other components of the Modular Sleep System. With the rating and comfort this sleeping bag provides it is ideal for use in three seasons throughout much of North America.
For those who are looking for expanded cold weather protection the US Military Patrol Sleeping Bag is a great start. With this sleeping bag you can add the US Military Intermediate Cold Weather Sleeping Bag which is designed to be used with the Patrol Sleeping Bag. The snaps you see on these two sleeping bags are placed to allow them to be connected together giving you a layered extreme cold weather sleeping bag.

I've owned one of these bags for a few years and bought this one as a backup/loaner. I've used mine as part of my motorcycle camping gear, where space is a premium. Coupled with a Granite Gear 11L compression stuff sack (amazon), this bag will compress down to roughly the size of a football. It makes a great lightweight summer bag, and I've used it in temps down into the low 30's when paired with a couple layers of good thermals. This makes it the perfect bag for my three season needs here in the north Georgia mountains. Especially for the price! The one I just received from Keep Shooting appears to be new. It is part of the USGI bag system, and I'm sure the complete setup would increase its usefulness for other applications, but for my needs (lightweight and compact) the patrol bag works perfectly alone. It's a well thought out and designed bag, and you can't beat it for the price, IMO.
The one I got was in great condition.
Fantastic inexpensive s/bag for my B'O'B.
When I received this sleeping bag I couldn't believe that it was used it looks brand new , very comfortable and just right for Florida temperatures.
I been holding back on buying the USGI sleep system. I broke down and started buying it by components. The patrol bag is a soft, warm, 3 season style bag. Mine looked brand new except the NSN laundry care tag showed it wasn't brand new. Otherwise it is perfect. a good price and great quality.
