First - I don't expect too much from a $35 dollar sleeping bag. It's rated at 15 degrees. I'd say 30 is a better guestimate. Purchased it new early spring 2008 and it's now Sept. Have used it about 10 times so far.
Most recently on a 6 night camping trip to the Redwoods in No. Cal. Nights dipped into the lower 40s and I was warm in shorts/t-shirt. I am a warm sleeper though (170 lbs). I probably wouldn't recommend it for backpacking, it's 4 pounds and not that small and I wouldn't trust the zipper in the backcountry in cold weather. For car camping though, it does pack reasonably small (much smaller than a cotton rectangle bag) and I don't worry about leaving it in the tent (or wherever) for the day - something I can't (won't) do with nice backpacking gear when car camping/day hiking.
Have had to trim a few threads and the zipper length doesn't go all the way down to your feet - which makes doing the half in, half out thing a pain, which being a warm sleeper I often do. That's my only complaint really.
2.5 stars mainly due to price. Although some would see that as a plus :) I'm not expecting it to last more than 2-3 years of car camping, and at $35 dollars (online) I wouldn't expect it to.
My husband and I both have one and have used them…

My husband and I both have one and have used them only once so far. We camped in the Catskills NY during fall. Even though it got quite chilly both nights we were quite warm in these bags. I did notice if you try to unzip or zip back up to fast it does catch, but that's it. If tightly rolled back up, they do go into the stuffsack. I like that they are colored an earth tone. I can't stand how brightly colored a lot of camping stuff is now.
