5.0 out of 5 stars Great entry level down bag, January 8, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kelty Cosmic 20 Degree Down Sleeping Bag (Sports)
I feel badly when you pry out of a kid that they were cold last night. Sure, they might not complain much, but it doesn't seem quite fair when you were warm and they weren't. Back packing is supposed to be fun, and it's not fun when you're cold. When I saw these bags - even at full price, I figured they were worth a try.

I got two of them. A short, fishing-lure-looking thing for my eleven year old daughter, and a regular-size green one for my thirteen year old son. I couldn't be more pleased. They are well made, and appear durrable. My wife, at 5'6" fits in the short just fine. I, at 6'1'', am a rather snug fit in in the regular. So far the feathers don't leak. My kids give them a thumbs up. They slept in them at 20 degrees. The daughter said her bottom half was a little cold, but not bad. The son said he slept a little cool. One door and they could have been in their own warm beds. They slept soundly (I checked on them through the night). They looked quite comfortable. We had to wake the daughter up at 9:AM. FYI, 20 degrees bare foot, and in a bathrobe is COLD! These bags should be very comfortable at 30 degrees, their "comfort" rating. The bag compresses well. For the money, this is a super value.

In reading other reviews I note a complaint that you can see light through the bag, or hollow spots, without apparent feathers. This is not a flaw, it's a down bag. Shake the bag thourally to fluff it up and distribute the feathers. You will still see light through the bag - that's OK. Another complaint I see is that the bag smells - like duck feathers. It does; and says duck down right on the tag. This is NOT a $200 goose down bag. It's no big deal. It's a camping smell that says "You're going to be warm tonight". If that bothers you, spend more money, and don't go near the camp fire; by comparison, that really stinks.
