Finally a comfortable bag for side sleepers. Wake up untwisted on the pad!
- Excellent overall design
- Pad sleeve
- Treated down
- One size
I sleep on my arm with it extended and finally there's a bag for me to do that. With zippers on both sides I can sleep on either arm, not just the side with the zipper.
The sleeve that holds any large size pad keeps the sleeping bag from becoming a boa constrictor and making you wake up with a twisted spine. The bag's hood allows you to sleep in it or on top of it and the foot box keeps your feet cozy. Treated down makes water absorption less of a problem too.
My only negative observation is the bag's weight and the fact that it only comes in one size. I realize thought that adding an extra zipper and making the bag rectangular adds to the weight. Making a shorter bag would allow the use of a smaller pad (reg. size pad) thereby shaving a few ounces from the pad and bag.
However, a good night's sleep can more than make up for the extra weight.
