Kelty Coromell 0 Review
The Kelty Coromell 0 is the best bang for your buck when it comes to a zero degree down sleeping bag. The MSRP is just over $200, however, you can find it online for a tad less, which makes it a great deal. Aside from being an economical choice, the Kelty Coromell 0 is also an extremely comfortable and versatile sleeping bag. The bag has a modified mummy shape, which means that it is not as tapered as your typical mummy bag but not quite rectangular either. Rather, the Coromell is somewhere in the middle and offers a bit more room through the elbows, hips, and even in the toe box.
The Coromell 0 also has a full length two way zipper that allows you to vent out the toe box region if you start to heat up or even unzip it all the way and use it as more of a blanket. The bag can also be zipped together with a second sleeping bag after zipping off the hood, making it a good choice for any couple that likes to sleep a little closer!
The Kelty Coromell 0 utilizes 650 fill down which kept me warm when the temps plummeted camping about 10,000 ft in Colorado. There seems to be more down on the top of the bag than the bottom, which works well considering you have a sleeping pad on the underside to help keep your bottom warm. The slant baffle construction has kept the loft of the bag in check despite placing it in and out of a stuff sack all summer long. The bag compresses nicely with the REI size medium stuff sack that I already own and comes with a nice linen storage sack for the off season. The Coromell comes with a light weight stuff sack, but I liked using the one I have a tad better because it offers compression from both sides, making it smaller and easier to place in my pack.
As far as backpacking goes, this bag is on the heavier side, weighing in at a little over 4 lbs. There are definitely lighter bags out on the market, but you are bound to spend a couple hundred more for the reduced weight. If you don’t mind a little more weight or do primarily car camping, then this is the sleeping bag for you. Overall, the warmth to cost ratio that this bag provided was excellent! It has many of the same bells and whistles that higher end bags have, without the added cost. Check out the features and sizing below for a bit more information!
