Summary

Excellent bag for anyone who sleeps cold and on their side.

Pros

  • Warm!
  • Lofts well
  • Great for side sleepers

Cons

  • Only goes up to 5'6" so taller people can't use it.
  • Price through store

I sleep cold and on my side.  The Murre, made specifically for women, lets me sleep warmly and on my side with my knees up too! I went winter hiking for the first time and was not cold at all in 20°F nights.  

At 5'3", I ordered the 5"6" bag thinking that I would just fit in the smaller bag and feel cramped. I'm not sure if this is the right size because I have a lot of extra space at the bottom. It still kept me warm though.

It lofts up well and compresses fairly well. Since it is made for 0°F, I didn't expect something super small. The zipper only goes down to the foot box top which means that my toes were toasty. I can unzip it from the bottom if the night does get warm.

I would recommend this bag to anyone, male or female, who wants to stay warm at night and/or sleeps on their side.  For hot side sleepers, just get one that is not rated as low.
