The bag is absolutely wonderful. It's the most comfortable bag I have ever slept in. The stretch design allows me (a sleeper that sleeps in a variety of positions during the night) lots of room to move around. However, one thing that I noticed is that the down is able to escape out of the seams of the bag. I don't know whether or not it's natural or if there is a breaking in period. Overall, the bag is the best I have ever owned (is there a e-mail for the company?).

The Van Winkle Sleeping Bag by Sierra Designs offers a revolutionary new concept in outdoor living: a comfortable night's sleep in the outdoors. The trick is in the Flex construction: the bag expands where you need it to, so you can turn and move like you do at home, all the while maintaining thermal efficiency (you stay warm). Our NightCap Hood allows side and belly sleepers (75% of us) to keep elbows and arms inside the bag, in their natural position, all night long. Don't take our word for it: get inside a Flex bag and try it out. Sleeping on the ground will never be the same.Great for: Backpacking, Camping, Travel Temperature Range: 15 Degree F/-9 Degree C.
