What customers say about the Military Modular Sleep System
There were lots of positive reviews for this Military Modular Sleep system. For example this is a great all weather sleep system (obviously, that’s why the Army issues them), that you would really have to try to destroy in order to really hurt it. its a great year-round bag because the various bags can snap together. If its hot out, you really only need the Patrol Bag and the Bivy; likewise, when it gets colder, you bring the rest of the system. one of the main downfalls of this Sleep System is that when the entire System is together in the Comp Sack, its rather bulky/heavy when compared to the civilian bags. the bonus, as I have said, is that you can choose, climate permitting, to leave parts of the system at home and cut down on bulk and weight.
Another reviewer stated these are the real deal folks. The camo outer shell is high quality Goretex and thick with excellent hardware. Stitching on all pieces is superb. As advertised, this system is perfect for multi climate missions as the light layer can be stand alone or combined in several combinations. You WILL stay dry and warm. The stuff sack is bulky but with some practice, you can cinch her down nicely. Bag is black and you don’t need to be shy when cinching it.
A reviewer remarked that this is a great system for camping in my area. It gives me plenty of sleep options for my area. For instance, I can grab a three day pack, stuff a poncho liner and the Goretex shell, stuff it in the bottom of the bag, coffee can cook pot, food and fishing rod and hit the trail for a weekend out. And if I switch to a bigger pack, I can easily carry all 4 components and be warm and toasty in the dead of winter (Southeast Texas winter). It really gives you lots of options.
This reviewer mentioned I used the bag and bivy last night on a scout trip. I slept outside on the snow packed ground where the temperature was in the 5-9 degree range. This system performs as advertised. My only issue is with the bivy itself. I was so warm inside the bag and bivy that I had to open up the bivy to let some cool air inside. Then the inside of my bivy (just around the head area) iced over due to condensation (breath) and the below freezing temps.
