Summary

This bag is a good deal for the budget conscious. It's a bit bulky for a backpack, but if you're concerned about staying warm and cozy, it'll do the job. I'm an adventure cyclist and I love this bag, however, I had to buy a different compression sack to get the bag down to a more manageable size. I would recommend it for backpackers/cyclists/day hikers who want a good bag for a good deal.

Pros

  • Warm
  • Good padding underneath
  • Long enough for a tall guy
  • Synthetic, so it dries quickly if it gets wet
  • Relatively light
  • Good deal

Cons

  • Bulky

Coming from a very old and cold sleeping bag, this bag exceeds my expectations. I've slept in the low 30's, in a tent, with no sleeping pad or any clothes (except underwear and socks) and stayed very warm.  

It's pretty bulky for an adventure cyclist/backpacker but it can be compressed far more than the compression sack (that comes with it) can get it. I would suggest using a different compression sack for this bag if you're concerned about space.

I also bought the long, since I'm 6'4" and it's plenty of room!
