Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $80 @ REI

This is a review for the 20 degree bag. It has all the comforts for car camping but these can easily be ditched for backpacking. I purchased this for my 3 year old daughter. The bag packs small and fit easily into her Deuter Fox 30 pack, which I would also recommend to anyone. I love the pillow pocket. It can be stuffed with cloths or the packable pillow that comes with it, she is happy with either. The zipper never and I mean never gets stuck.

We also have a Mountain Hardwear Mountain Goat 20 degree bag for my 5 year old. The goat has a minimalists feel and look for a synthetic, but the two weigh the exact same. If you ditch the pillow and sleeping pad connectors then the SD is the lighter bag, packs smaller, and is warmer.

Personal experience: I took my girls backpacking early this spring in Western Wyoming. The first day was great but that night it rained then turned to snow. I slept in a 15 degree 600 fill down bag. In my lean-to, I woke up chilled many times. I checked on my girls many times, and the oldest was curled up in a ball, but my 3 year old had both arms out.

The next morning I asked them how they slept and my 5 year said she was kinda cold, but my 3 year old said she was really warm! Now, my five year old wants a Sierra Design bag.

Bottom Line: If you have kids this is the bag that will keep them and you smiling.
