Sleep Well: Finding the Right Sleeping Bag
Sleeping bag technology has come a long way from the days of cowboy bedrolls. These days, there are a number of high-tech materials and designs available to keep you warm during the coldest outings. Here's a short list of things to keep in mind when you're shopping for a bag:

Buy for Cold
It's a safe bet that on at least one of your adventures, the nighttime temperature will drop unexpectedly. That's why it's smart to buy a bag that's rated for the lowest possible temperature you expect to face on your camping and backpacking trips. For summer trips, a bag rated at +35 degrees or higher will likely do the trick. If you like to camp in higher elevations in the summer, or if spring and fall outings are in your future, consider bags rated from +10 to +35. Winter adventurers should look for bags in the -10 to +10 range, while those on serious winter alpine climbs and expeditions will want a bag rated lower than -10.

Keep in mind that sleeping bag manufacturers' temperature ratings only estimate the minimum temperature at which the bag will provide warmth. Take these numbers with a grain of salt, as different folks generate different amounts of heat when they sleep. If you're the type who likes to pile on the covers even on warmer nights, go for a bag that's rated ten degrees colder. The opposite is true for "warm" sleepers--a 35-degree bag will probably work for you on a 25-degree night.

Goose or No Goose?
The most important component of any sleeping bag is its insulating material. Modern sleeping bags offer two choices: goose down or synthetic. While both materials have advantages and disadvantages, down bags are considered superior because of their phenomenal warmth-to-weight and warmth-to-bulk ratios. While providing great insulation, down is extremely compressible and light. There's a reason why geese can fly and stay warm through the winter! Down also boasts great long-term durability and will typically retain its insulating properties after years of use.

All of that said, there are many high-quality synthetic bags on the market and synthetic materials are getting better all the time. While a synthetic bag will weigh somewhat more than a down bag at an equivalent temperature rating, synthetic bags perform better when wet. (Yes, the Achilles heel of down is that it loses all insulating properties when wet.) If your trips take you to wet climates, you may want to consider a synthetic bag for this reason alone. Keep in mind, too, that many people are allergic to down--synthetic bags are non-allergenic. Finally, down is considerably more expensive than synthetic, which might tip the balance for adventurers on a budget.

Bags for All Shapes
Sleeping bags come in two basic shapes that reflect their intended use. Mummy-shaped bags offer the best warmth because they conform to the body's contours. This minimizes the amount of body heat the body must put out to maintain a constant temperature. Many mummy bags are offered in women-specific shapes and sizes, as well. Rectangular bags, while they do offer more room to toss and turn, are less thermally efficient because they contain more open air space. Also, they are typically heavier than mummy bags, and are generally not offered with down insulation, making them best suited for car camping or short backpacking trips.

Pad Yourself
No matter what kind of bag you choose, a sleeping pad is a required accessory. Not only do they provide much-needed comfort when sleeping on the ground, pads also offer crucial warmth for your backside, as the weight of your body compresses--and renders virtually useless--the sleeping bag insulation that lies beneath you.

It is a very warm and comfortable sleeping bag.
Careful Buyer
I've used it in severe cold, and while my classmates were freezing, I stayed nice and toasty in this bag.

I would recommend passing up the higher priced bags as this one definetly does the trick!

I found this an excellent bag a few weeks ago when camping with my son on a Boy Scouts campout. The temperature dropped into the low 20s F and I was warm all night. I was able to cinch up the opening so just my face was exposed. It's roomy enough to be comfortable sleeping as I like to be able to move my legs around a fair amount.

This was used in the mountains and was a fairly cold night in November. The first night my feet were cold, but the next night I wrapped my feet in my coat in the bottom of the bag and wasn't cold at all and slept through the night. I will be camping again this coming weekend and am going to give these hand warmers a try.Porta Brace Polar Heat Packs, Disposable Chemical Hand & Equipment Warmers, Pack of Twelve. The bag is an awesome value. I'm using it at around 6,000+ ft. and it is 20-30 degrees at night.

My son took it out on his first Boy Scout campout last weekend. Temps dropped into the mid-upper 20's. I wasn't on the campout but he said he stayed plenty warm. The stuff sack works great too, no more trying to roll a bag and put a strap around it...just stuff it in and pull the draw-string. So far so good.

I've used this bag twice now and am happy with the purchase. I have slept out side under the stars down to 30 degrees so far and had the following observations. My feet were nice and warm all night. I started sleeping without sweat paints but later in the night felt I needed them to keep warm. I'm 46 so I will get colder at night then someone in their 20's. I very much doubt you would want to sleep in this bag in 0 degree weather, 15 degrees seems more realistic.

The only issue I have seen so far is that the zipper can snag on the lining, this is a stupid over sight from the manufacturer. A simple strip of stiffer fabric would have prevented this issue.

On the plus side you get a lot for the money, to soon to tell about long term build quality. I felt for a mummy bag it offered a good amount of movement space. Over all happy, I think I could have spent 2 to 3 times the price for the same quality.

We purchased this for our Boy Scout for his Polar Bear merit badge. Recieved it on time in great condition from Amazon. The kids had to hike 1/2 mile away from the group with a buddy, prepare a camp site, build a fire, cook and then sleep in sub 30 degree temperature with no tent. It kept him warm for the whole night,I'm glad I didn't have to do it. It was well worth the expense.

I first purchased Wenzel sleeping bags from 1979 to 1981. I still have them and they have stood the test of time. Reasonable weight for backpacking and I have never been cold while camping is 30 degree weather. I have not camped in very cold situations. This bag is the same Wenzel quality at a reasonable price. My son loves it for cub scouts, and I know he will carry this bag into adulthood. It is well made and the same if not better quality than my original Wenzels which I still have and use and are as good as new. Great durability.

very warm- was summer camping and used it more as a quilt- just closed it up on the coldest night (maybe around 30) and it was fine (not sure I'd be too happy in it in zero degrees, but I am always cold)- I was used to a down bag so I wasn't expecting it to be so big, but all in all it is great

Bought for my Scout after he complained the Coleman Exponent was cold. He didn't have the same complaint with this bag. Said it kept him warm.
It is a bit smaller which might have smething to do with it as there was not as much air space. This bag would be too small for a tall person though IMO.
