Max Neale Spoonbill Review

The Spoonbill is one of our most unique sleeping bags, and gear-tester-epic-adventurer Max Neale put the bag through it paces over the last four years.

Here is a snippet from his full reivew (which we highly recommend you read!): The Best Ultralight Four-Season Sleeping Bag: Feathered Friends Spoonbill Review.

Spoonbill on Denali

"I have tested at least 60 different sleeping bags, including six Feathered Friends bags, watched the Spoonbill in production at Feathered Friends’ Seattle factory, and feel it’s their best product. If you’re serious about saving weight for colder weather backcountry trips, the Spoonbill is an essential purchase. Next to another person, and with the right clothing, the bag can be used in the coldest winter conditions. Compared to bringing two warm winter bags, it can save four pounds! Since 2012, my Spoonbill has been used on trips of all types by ten people. The best test was in 2014 when Zeb and I used it at 17,700 ft on the third night of climbing Denali’s Cassin Ridge. I’ve also used it on Mt. Huntington’s Harvard Route, a climb-ski-packraft trip out of the Alaska Range, and on a lot of shorter hiking and skiing trips in Alaska and the lower 48. This is one of my all-time favorite pieces of outdoor gear."
