I woulda never thought to go to target for a high end sleeping bag... the wash for your buddy was mr. switcheroo, the guy that got the prov balls for the price of the nikes. the wash for op would be the guy who got charged double for one dozen, if there is anyone like that
I figured someone would bring that up. It was an Eddie Bauer brand, over $100. Sure I could have gone to a camping/adventure boutique and spent $300 on one that was slightly better but I was fresh out of college and $100 was about $90 more than I had ever spent on a sleeping bag before.
Target sells lots of "high end" stuff especially when it comes to their private labels - it's just rebadged name brand products.
Did you guys know that Kirkland vodka and Grey Goose are made with the same ingredients, brewed the same way and come from the same factory in France? You'd be extremely hard pressed to taste any difference and there is no difference in quality.
