I needed a new sleeping bag for the John Muir Trail and my budget was a little tight so I ordered this bag. It worked great. It had plenty of room and was very warm even on the nights above 12,000 feet without a tent (I would wake up with ice on the bag but was never cold). It is a bit bulky but I think with a good compression sack it would pack down to a decent size. In my opinion if it can survive 23 straight days and 260 miles it is a good product.

I bought this bag for my annual winter fishing trips in Arkansas after the zipper on my old bag stopped zipping. We tent camp on the river bed throughout the winter and it can get really cold! I used the bag over Thanksgiving weekend, with temperatures dropping into the low 20's. I kept my thermals on and stayed nice and warm all night long. I feel confident that it will keep me warm even if it drops closer to 0 degrees, though I might have to add a layer of clothes.
I'm 5'9" and weigh 160lb. The bag was a great size for me, though if you're any taller, you'll probably need the large bag.
The bag seems to be well made and I hope it will last me a few years.

My wife got this as an extra bag for cold nights. She worked for an outdoor center, and they slept in honest 0 Degree weather.

She uses this bag as an outside cover with a 0 Degree REI down bag. Yes, that's correct - 2x 0 Degree bags. That's to stay comfortable during long nights of cold weather.

I'm a 6-foot tall 170lbs male, and I found it fit me just fine. I would not trust this for comfort in any weather below 20 degrees, but I'm sure it'll keep you alive at 0 Degree.

I was surprised at how well it stuffed for a synthetic. Small enough for a sub $100 bag.

Good for the price.

I'm not sure about the other reviews warning about hypothermia. I took this bag up Kilimanjaro and it performed fine down into single digits. The zippers are smooth and easy to operate, and the lining is comfortable, too. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because I wish it were more compressible and maybe a tad lighter. Other than that, this bag is solid.

Most zero's will run you two hundred or more and won't give you any more than this bag.

When sleeping in the cold, a warm bag is a must if you want any sleep. I slept in this bag at 16 degrees and was warm all night while other friends in other zero bags were shivering and waking up all night. Granted that was only the second week of sleeping in the bag, so it was newer, it got the job done.

The only thing that I didn't like was the tightening ropes on the hood. They were a bit tricky to figure out, as only the top seemed to tighten, but after further inquires I discovered that there were two separate cords to tighten. One tightens the top, where your head is, and the other tightens the bottom, where your chin is. It's genius design in my opinion.

The stuff sack is a little big which makes it super easy to stuff, but when trying to get it in my pack, it makes it hard. I'm keeping an eye out for a new stuff sack to make it smaller as I backpack often and reducing the size of this thing (its rather big) is a must. Other than that though, this is a fine pack indeed. No better zero bag for the money.

It pains me to write this review as I am a big fan of Kelty. Great products at great price points. I am currently on my third Grand Mesa II tent. Additionally, I have the 4 person version of the Grand Mesa II. Over the years, I have learned to trust Kelty products. Of course, this excludes "Ridgeway by Kelty" products as they are not actually made by Kelty.

Perspective: I am retired and spend between 40-50 nights a year in a sleeping bag inside a Kelty tent.

My previous best bag was a 25 degree Coleman which I used for about 6 years. I am a warm sleeper and by wearing a base layer, dry Merino socks and a light skullcap, I was able to stay nice and warm in the Coleman bag down to about 15-20 degrees. This was as long as I was sleeping in a two person tent. Seems like, I lose a 10 degree advantage when I sleep alone in the 4 person tent.

The Coleman bag has gradually lost some of it's insulating capability over the years, so it was time to invest in a new bag. I was really attracted to the Kelty Cosmic 0 Degree Down bag because of it's outstanding reviews all over the Web.

However, my trips to high humidity areas (Alaska, Labrador, etc.) ruled out using a down bag because of their tendency to lose insulating capability when damp. I did look at the DriDown version but the price was too high for me. Ergo, the Kelty Cosmic 0 Degree synthetic seemed like just the right answer. NOT!!!

On 20 March, 2014, I went for a 5 day camping trip on the Dome Plateau in Utah. The first night, the temperature dropped to 31 degrees and I was cool all night long. This was with a base layer, wool socks and a skull cap with the bag cinched around my head. Never cold but always cool.

Now, I have been at this camping business for a long time and generally use the 20 degree rule. In other words, add 20 degrees to the rating on a bag and that is closer to its real rating. (I wish there was a standard rating system for synthetic bags like the EN 13527 ratings for down bags.) I believe I could be comfortable in this bag at 35-40 degrees....and this is with base layer, etc.

The other thing I should mention is the "regular" size is tight for me and I am only 5'7". The bag is advertised for up to 6' but you would have to sleep like a fetus.

The next day, I held the bag up to the sunlight and was surprised how much light showed through because of the thin amount of insulation. Who knows....maybe I got a "Monday" bag. I'm still a fan of Kelty products, just not this bag.

Keeps the frost at bay. In 20+ degrees it does the job.

One thing, does not compress well.

If you are sleeping in less than 10 degree weather, try a zero degree sleeping bag.

Got this for my 10 year old. It's a little big but good because we wanted there to be room to grow. Very warm!

This bag was fantastically warm this weekend while camping in freezing temps in Yellowstone. Although it is somewhat bulky, it was fine for tossing in the car and pulling out once at the campsite. I was toasty warm (and wore several layers). I recommend this for a low-budget, well-made bag for the cold-weather camper. Enjoy!

I used mine in 25' weather and had to remove clothes in the middle of the night due to sweating because it may of been too warm for this trip. I have not used it on a zero degree trip so I cannot comment on that. I did buy the long one because I do not like being confined like a mummy and I am glad I did. Lots of room this way. It is a quality bag.
