Wow, that's the cheapest I've seen a whoel system listed for, anywhere!
It's the same system I used in the Marines, and it is indeed great. Only problem I can think of would be that it's a little bulky, and would benefit greatly from the separate sleep system pouch we had on our MOLLE packs.

I never used one like you did, but the ones I have seen you can take the Gore Tex cover and use it for other things. is that what you mean?

These systems can be found on Great Outdoors and other places periodically for cheap. I can see if I could get a pallet of them for a deal if there are enough people interested. Only problem is that they are bulky so they are expensive to ship.

Thanks for the good info, y'all. I think I'm sold on the military issue.

Nah, our MOLLE packs had a separate clip-on bag that went on the bottom of the pack frame, specifically for your sleep system, like this:



It's the big, fat thing at the bottom.

I speak from near the four years experience backing the PCT I've had with this one. This bag is awsome!!

With a silk liner you can get another 10 degrees lower fahrenheit rating, it's light, has good loft, and with a compression sack it compacts real small.
