This is a fair sleeping bag at a fair price. I bought the bag for the size and weight. It is not a cold weather camping bag. Glorified backyard sleeping bag.

This is a fair sleeping bag at a fair price. I bought the bag for the size and weight. It is not a cold weather camping bag. After about 35 years of camping, I froze in this bag on more than one occasion. I have tried it every way I can think of, hat, dry clothes like thermals. I have also tried it the other way the next night with the same basic results.
Luckily I had a real sleeping bag with me. I pulled out the old REI and put this bag inside this one. I didn't want to get completely out of the bag in the middle of the night. I have owned the REI for about 25 years and it has never let me down.
I would like to say if you can shine a weak flashlight, or better yet just hold it up to the light you can see the light coming through.
I have used this bag in tents and on cots with and without mattresses.
Go to a real camping store and look at the difference in the loft of the material and you can see a huge difference.
I think this is more of an early fall or late spring camping trip bag.
