I am a big guy 6'3", 240lbs. Trying to find clothes and gear to fit right is a major undertaking. I searched a few months for the right bag for my purposes, 3 season backpacking and bike touring. I tried bags from several manufactors, The North Face, Marmot, Sierra, SlumberJack, and EMS. I don't favor any company over another because my belief is that you have to get whatever item suits your needs and budget. Although after trying several bags out for fit in the stores, I chose the EMS bag.
Great room for large girth fellows. Also on several occassions the worst being up in Michigan with temps in the 30s and wet, that bag kept me warm the entire night, never restricting my movement. So for now I am extremely happy with this bag, but only time will tell. Although I won't hesitate to recommend this bag to anyone, the bag has great quality especially for the money. I have always had excellant help at the EMS store that I shop at, which goes a long way when you get great customer service.
