    Hey all...I figured I would post this information, which we also include in each box when we ship the sleep sets...This is the CARE and CLEANING Information on these sleeping bags.


    This product is the exact same sleeping system the military has used for a number of years in a variety of climates and environments. All of these bags come directly from the military at auction. These sleep sets are available in a number of conditions to you, our customer.

    1. New – New/Unissued/Never Used

    2. Excellent Condition – Possibly Unissued or Slightly used
    To ensure you get the most out of your purchase and ensure you properly care for all of the parts of this sleeping system:

    1. SLEEPING BAGS - We recommend that you wash the Intermediate Bag (The black heavy bag) and the Patrol Bag (The light weight green or grey bag), because they have been stored in a government warehouse for an unknown length of time in unknown conditions (i.e. an open box with dust or other dirt and/or with non-dangerous contaminates in the air). Yes, even the new sleeping bags might have dust on them. DO NOT DRY-CLEAN THESE SLEEP SYSTEMS! We recommend cleaning them in your home washing machine, on a delicate cycle with a small amount of laundry detergent (Your best results will be from a front load machine). We also recommend running the bags through a second rinse cycle to ensure you have removed all of the detergent before use. Drying is simple, drip/air dry your bags in the bathtub, in your living-room/garage or deck. We have found they dry quickly and generally take less than 24 hours.

    2. BIVY COVER – because this is a waterproof cover, do not wash this in a machine or dry clean. The best method for cleaning is to wash the bivy cover with a garden water hose, using a light soft brush or broom and some liquid dish soap. Lightly brush the cover and rinse with water. These dry quickly with air drying in just a few minutes (exterior), if you wash the interior, this may take longer to dry as it is not the waterproof side of the cover.

    3. If you ever get a hole in the bivy cover there are a number of iron on patches (available on the internet), which are waterproof, they work great (just don’t use the iron at too high a heat setting or you will burn the bivy cover). Use a waterproofing spray or sealant to seal the seams if you ever sew or add a patch to any part of the cover.

    4. If you have any care questions please feel free to contact us at the above location and we will be happy to provide you information, guidance and support as it is available.
    Sincerely

    Bob & Bobby Thrasher

    Product is as advertised. I just bought the never-issued and was cutting the inspection tags off to throw in the washer. Good product, good service.

    Hey All

    We just got back this evening from the 24 hour round trip to Ohio to pickup about 150 Modular Sleep Set (MSS) sleeping bag from the Government National Warehouse...It looks like we got 50+ new MSS sleep sets (I only list 25 on the opening post of this conversation - the others we listed on E-bay - I hate to over estimate my inventory to be sure everyone has an opportunity to acquire one), we also got 15+ Brand New Extreme Cold Weather (ECW) Sleep Sets (See attached pictures) that come with a specially designed stuff sack...If anyone is interested in the ECWs...These are not those older style ECW that were made of canvas and were filled with down (That weighed in the upwards of 15+ pounds), that were useless when they got wet. These are rated at -20 degrees. These ECWs were made by a company named ISRATEX, INC...I have not been able to find too much information about them or the manufacturers specifications, but the sleep sets are really well made.

    Can o see a picture of the MSS sleep sets? I have a couple ECW mummy bags from when my dad was in the service. I’m not sure which ones I’d like to replace them with

    As a side note, it looks like I have some of the new\unissued sleep sets that are oversized (Not XL, but out of spec). It looks like from my measurements we can fit people that are 6' 3", 275 pounds with no problem...as I have about 50 + of the New\Unissued it is hard to tell how many of them will fit this sizing requirements...but, I would say I have at least 5++ at this point. As I dig deeper into them I'll let you know...

    They are great setups for camping in any weather conditions...all 4 seasons. Now is a great time to get the Unissued sleep sets as I have a bunch of them and they are all perfect...It varies for me, sometimes we get a bunch (like now), but most of the time I only see a couple per auction...they are moving fast...

    We still have some nice condition military sleep sets...In Unissued, Excellent and Obviously Used (See explanations of conditions on the first posting of this thread)...I have a number of these sleep sets that are out of spec, which will fit the larger of you guys (Not XL)...this includes up to 6' 3" and 275 pounds in all conditions...These go fast in the unissued...
