Let me just say that I don't particularly like mummy style sleeping bags because I like to sleep on my side or stomach and when I am car camping I travel with a bag I have had for years and love. I also sleep cold and usually find that even as a 3-season camper I am chilly in backpacking bags I have used. I have been searching for a bag I would be happy with as my "backpacking bag".

I just purchased the Mojave +10 and have used it on two occasions where the temps have been early spring weather and nights in the 20's. This bag was soft, comfy, and warm all night long. I also like that the bag is short enough for a woman so that I am not spending a lot of energy trying to warm up unused space -- but it has enough extra width to allow for movement. I was able to sleep on my side without the bag being overly constraining.

It comes with the ability to attach a pad to the bag -- but I found it worked better keeping them separate to allow me to sleep on my side. It packs small enough and light enough to work well with a weekend pack without difficulty. It will not replace my old favorite car camping bag -- but for packing and for colder weather I have found the bag for me.

Ok, I was warm. But the Mojave was not like any of the other bags I have used. First, and most irritating, was the smell. The water repellant treatment gave me a sore throat and a headache. It made me not want to keep the hood cinched. Second, the bag would not allow me to sleep on my side, with my legs bent. All in all, it was not a great night's sleep.
