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.
The little loops on the bag are to connect to your sleep pad if desired. One reviewer was unsure.
Not sure why someone would think the baffle is too small?
A couple of people said the zipper could be difficult to operate, but having a good zipper baffle, you just need to watch what you are doing. I have found nothing wrong with the zipper at all. (And it does have a double ended zipper.)
Yes, you can side sleep in it with your legs pulled up.
No, it is not water proof, nor are there claims that it is. Down + water = a very long and cold night! Dry it out thoroughly after a night's use. Hang it on a branch while eating breakfast. Twenty minutes should be long enough.
When you get your bag, take it out of the stuff sack, and shake it out. This will loft it up. While it seems to be thin when first out of the bag, prepare to be amazed at the power of down! (It's almost magic!Read more ›
Here are some tips I have learned while researching this bag:
-Don't leave it in the stuff sack it comes in. If you store a down bag in a stuff sack, it will loose it's fluff much faster, thus loosing it's warmth. I put mine in a pillow case, but something a little larger than that and breathable would be recommended.
-The regular size is definitely made for people who are exactly 6 ft tall. If you are taller, strongly consider getting the larger bag.
-Don't get it wet. Down bags lose their heating properties when wet.
-Don't let your cats near it. Mine punched a whole in the stuff sack within 2 minutes of me opening the package :(
-Use a sleeping pad and wear long jons, socks, and a hat. Sleeping bags are rated for comfortability while using all of these, not while sleeping shirtless on the ground.
